My holiday gift to neighbors...

In previous years I have always shared an assortment of the Christmas cookies and other treats I have made with some of my neighbors. I felt that this year called for treats that were individually packaged and not homemade, so this is what I came up with.

I purchased some plain white coffee cups and used my Silhouette to create a special design in vinyl. This is one side of the cups.

And this is the other side. I filled each cup with Ghirardelli chocolates and Hershey's kisses.

Once I had them all filled, I set each cup inside a clear goody bag from Dollar Tree, added a little note and tied them with some curling ribbon. 

These were so much fun to make, and we got some nice responses from our neighbors.

It's blizzarding here today. The roads are really icy because we had rain first, which froze to a layer of ice before the snow began falling. There have been lots of accidents around the metro area. We're staying home and staying safe.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

The coffee mugs are just too cute and so appropriate this year. Love the goodies tucked inside as well. So the COVID - has not been kind this year, granddaughter has it, (and she has hubby and 3 young kiddos), my bestie and her hubby has it, in fact he has been hospitalized twice within the last ten days with it. My hairdresser (thank heaven I got my hair cut two weeks ago),our vet - so far we are OK, just put a real damper on Christmas plans.

Oh, how cool are those, Cheryl! How sweet of you to give them to your neighbors. I still have never used vinyl in my Silhouette. Our daughter-in-lwa uses her Cricut for that, and I keep asking her to show me! Merry Christmas!

Wow, what a wonderful gift for your neighbors! And what a sad Christmas that we have to resort to store bought. With DH and I having Covid, I do understand, but it’s very sad. Thanks for sharing!
