This ‘Homemade’ Christmas Fudge poem along with a candy bar makes a perfect neighbor gift! Grab our free printable tag and give this fun neighbor Christmas gift a try!
*This printable was created from a poem written by Sherrie Coombs-Larsen. Thank you Sherrie for your creativity.
I am a gift giver. I love it, I love it, I love it. December slips away so quickly though, and it is easy to get overwhelmed/busy/distracted. Enter, my super easy neighbor gift idea. It’s a poem about how I had intentions to make homemade fudge, but ended up too busy, so I bought something instead!
It’s SO relatable.
Print this cute tag, and wrap up your favorite candy bar or tape it onto bag of truffles! I’ve done White Chocolate Covered Oreo cookies before too. This tag works for any treat you might want to give your neighbors as long as it isn’t actually homemade. ;)

Easy Christmas Neighbor Gift
My mom actually used this idea for our neighbor Christmas gifts years ago when I was in middle school, and we had so much fun running them around to everyone on our street. I remember everyone laughing over the poem and how many comments we got on them!
It was a fun way to see our neighbors and spread a little Christmas cheer without slaving in the kitchen all day.
Thankfully, after all this time, my mom still had the poem. I made a few changes and whipped up some cute, printable gift tags to make this that much easier for you!
Homemade Christmas Fudge Poem
Dashing from the malls
With groceries yet to buy,
Work & kids & life,
It’s all so crazy! Why?
Our cell phones ring again,
The machine will take the call,
We have no time for anything,
It drives us up the wall.
How are you?
How’s your life?
We really want to know.
Christmas Day is almost here,
Maybe it will snow!
A day or two ago,
We thought we’d make a treat,
For all our special friends–
A Christmas gift to eat!
Intentions were top notch,
But schedules would not budge,
So, here’s this year’s edition of
Candy to Use for Neighbor Gifts
- A large Symphony bar is always a good idea.
- I love Lindor Truffles and they are usually on sale in December!
- This Hershey’s Assortment pack is a really good deal.
Print as many copies as you need. I recommend printing on card stock or a high quality printer paper.
Trim them to size, and attach each tag to a candy bar or bag of chocolates with scotch tape.
If you want to, you can wrap the candy bar in card stock or wrapping paper. Add some bakers twine, maybe a bow, and voila!
