Our family hands out about 60 neighbor gifts for Christmas every year. With that many, I need gifts that are inexpensive, but still awesome. I’m always looking for creative ideas. This year I have teamed up with 29 incredibly talented bloggers to share 30 Christmas neighbor gift ideas. How’s that for inspiration? I’m sure you’ll be able to find something your neighbors will love from the great list below!
We almost always give homemade treats for our neighbor gifts. I love baking, and it’s a perfect opportunity for me to try new recipes. 😉 And I’ve never met anyone that doesn’t love homemade goodies! The trick is delivering them the first week of December, before everyone is all sugared out! I think quick bread makes a perfect gift, especially if it is wrapped up all pretty. I came up with some Printable Christmas Bread Wrappers that are perfect for mini loaves.
I made up a batch of Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread (recipe coming tomorrow), but you can use any recipe you like. I thought it was prettier to just leave the bread unwrapped, but you could certainly wrap it up in plastic wrap or aluminum foil before you add the bread wrapper.
Some of our favorites are:
Loaded Banana Bread
Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Bread
To use the bread wrapper, just click the link to the PDF file below, then print onto white cardstock. Cut them out, and cut a piece of parchment or waxed paper the same size.
Tape the parchment on the back of the printable, and wrap both of them around your bread. A quick, easy, and yummy Christmas gift that looks like a million bucks!

Thanks for the bread wrapper. It’s so cute!
Thanks for the great recipes to use them with.
So happy to hear you used the bread wrapper! And I hope you enjoyed the recipes as well. 🙂
Kara this is adorable. I love the idea of giving bread to the neighbors. Actually, I’d love to get this bread myself! Pinned.
Haha. I always consider it a good gift if I have a hard time giving it away. 🙂
