Neighbor Christmas Gifts

Pin It!



We've given this 
Mulled Cider 
to our neighbors more than once
& it's always a big hit!
{It seems like a nice change from cookies & candy.}

To make: fill a small cellophane bag with:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. whole allspice
1 tsp. whole cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
stick of cinnamon

Then attach the bag of ingredients to a 
2 quart bottle of apple juice.

We also attach a note with instructions.
{Since this post has become very PINTERESTING,
I made a free printable for the instructions. It can be
printed on cardstock or printed as a 4x6 photo. Enjoy!}



It's a pretty & delicious gift!

  3. What a great gift...I love a practical gift spruced up with some sweet homemade touches that a whole family can share...For our neighbors, I'm putting packages of hot chocolate mix with candy canes for stirring in cello bags tied up with twine and a little polka-dotted bell dangling down...But, now that I've seen your cider idea I like what you are doing better! Hope you don't mind if I file the idea away to use for next year?

  4. Won't you be my neighbor? Oh I loved Mr. Rogers when he sang that. ANYWAY, I love this project. As usual, I suppose ... I love everything you do. Jules

  6. This would be really cute if you covered up the label with some Christmas paper or large ribbon and bow!

    1. Thank you for your comment, Rachel. I'll be the first to admit that I don't REALLY know what I'm doing! Try this: hover over the image & right-click on it. Then click on "Save image as" or "Save picture as" in the pop-up menu. Choose where you want to save the image {such as desktop}. At that point I would send the image to Walgreens to print as a photo. I hope this helps!

      Warmly, Michelle

    1. Hi Mima, I don't think I put this printable on a hosting site - just hover over the image & right-click on it. Then click on "Save image as" or "Save picture as" in the pop-up menu. Choose where you want to save the image {such as desktop}. At that point I would send the image to Walgreens to print as a photo. Thanks so much for reading!
