Today I’;m sharing with you ideas to package homemade treats for Christmas. The Crafting Chicks hosted a series in November on Christmas Traditions. Lots of bloggers participated and I was happy to be one of them. ?I shared this post with them as part of that series and thought it would be fun to share it with everyone here!

Today I’;m excited to be here sharing one of my favorite family Christmas Eve traditions with you. It actually is a funny story, it started out first as an accident, then moved onto poor planning on my part. After that it became and annual event, so now we call it a tradition *wink*

In my family we love to deliver treats to our friends and neighbors at Christmas-time. It’;s not always something home baked or handmade but it always has a personal touch to it.

Before we go furtherpillow cases vintage, you should know two things about me—; ?1- I’;m not always ?a good manager of time and 2- I am for sure not a good manager of stress at the Holidays. I always seems to make bigger plans than I have energy or time to complete.

Every year I’;d try to get treats out to our neighbors early in the month to avoid the last minute Holiday craziness. Then every year without fail, ?we’;d be out in the car delivering gifts on Christmas Eve. It started to stress me out and make me feel like I “;failed”; Christmas.

Finally, after a few years of this we decided to just PLAN to deliver treats on Christmas Eve and a new tradition was born. Now my kids look forward every year to our treat delivery and even get dressed up for the occasion.

Now instead of looking at our last minute deliveries as a bad thing, we’;ve tried to make it a positive and look forward to it every year. We usually go out to breakfast and play Christmas music in the car while we drive around and drop off yummy treats to our friends and neighbors.

**hint hint: it’;s also a VERY good way to get kids out of the house on Christmas Eve day if they are driving you crazy with anticipation **

Here are a few of the gifts that we’;ve delivered in the past if you’;re looking for ideas! None of them are very time or labor intensive (as obviously I have time to complete them at the LAST MINUTE)
