This Christmas neighbor gift is one I would love from any friend. The gift of dishes allows you to enjoy paper plates, so you can relax a bit after dinner!

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

I’m excited to announce that I have teamed up with 29 incredibly talented and creative bloggers to share some fun neighbor gift ideas. Make sure to check out all the ideas below and visit everyone’s blogs for more details.


Now, a little close up on my gift.

I just gathered cups, forks, straws, plates, a ribbon, and gift tag printable for the number of people in the family I am gifting.

It’s such a fun gift to deliver!


This is the original rectangle version, but I’ve got a second CIRCLE version as well. Same words, just a little different. See below.
