Are you an after-Christmas clearance shopper? I am. I don’t go the day right after, because I don’t love waiting in line for ten hours, but I usually go within a couple days after. The stores put all the Christmas decor and treats on clearance and that’s when I buy that stuff. My MIL gave me this idea, of buying a bunch of one ornament on clearance after Christmas, then giving them as neighbor gifts the next year. I think these gold snowflake ornaments were in packs of 10 for 50 cents!
I took the ornaments and attached each of them to a simple handmade card. All I did was poke a small hole in the card, just big enough to fit the string through, then I tied a little knot in the back to keep it in place.
I also got these cute little stocking ornaments from Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, 6 for $2, and if you’re scrambling for a neighbor gift for this year, and can’t wait til after Christmas clearance these would be a cheap option!
I like this as a simple neighbor gift because, as much as I love to bake and receive delicious baked treats at Christmas time, it’s sometimes fun to switch it up! A non-edible gift is good too!
I designed the striped paper myself, so of course I’ll share it. You can download it here to make cards with or whatever!
