The Gift of Dishes: Christmas Neighbor Gift

A long time ago, I got this “gift of dishes” from a friend for Christmas, and loved the sentiment behind it, a night without dishes! Sometime after that, I made up a poem to then give it as a gift to other friends.  I’m sharing this fun idea and printable of the poem today, along with other great gift ideas!Christmas neighbor gift idea
