30 Christmas Neighbor Gifts

Christmas neighbor gifts are such a fun way to celebrate the holiday with those in your close community. Here are 30 easy recipes to share with your neighborhood!

Christmas neighbor gifts are not something that I grew up doing but it seems to be a huge cultural thing to do here in Utah, and in Idaho where Derek is from. Maybe people did it in NY where I grew up, but it wasn't a huge focus or part of holiday celebrations for our family. Over the years I've come to really love this tradition. If you're in the market for some Christmas neighbor gifts ideas this holiday season, here are 30 recipes that I think would go over really well!

30 Christmas Neighbor Gifts:

Super Easy Gingerbread Cookies:

We make these cookies every year and they're so tasty and easy to make! There is no chilling of the dough, so they take less time than other cookies, and taste great both frosted or not!

Recipe for Christmas Crack:

This is my favorite treat to make during the holiday season! It starts with saltine crackers, pour homemade caramel on top, spread melted chocolate over that, a dash of holiday sprinkles and you're good to go! This is what I did for gifts last year and got rave reviews!

The Best Sugar Cookies:

These sugar cookies have been my go-to recipe for the last several years. They turn out great every time, and are perfect to stack on a plate for neighbors when frosted with royal icing.

Canned Vanilla Spice Pear Butter:

I made this for neighbor gifts when we lived in Georgia and it got rave reviews! It's simply a canned pear sauce essentially, or maybe more like a jam, but if you eat it by the spoonful I'll never tell.

Amish Friendship Bread Without a Starter:

I got in a bad habit of making this bread and eating it single handedly this year, but it's so good literally everyone loves it. It's a banana bread consistency, and has cinnamon sugar through the middle and on top. It's perfect to share with friends for Christmas!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies:

These chocolate chip cookies are slightly chewier, more like what you would get from the bakery section at the grocery store, but they're also half dipped in chocolate and sprinkled in sea salt, and that my friends is a delicious combination.

Perfectly Moist Banana Bread:

This banana bread is hands down the best recipe ever. It's perfectly moist, made with sour cream in the batter, and turns out great every time. I've never had a flop. If you have some ripe bananas on your counter, whip up this bread and share it with a friend!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:

I haven't made these in ages, but brought them to a friend when they were hurt several years back. It might have been the brain injury talking but they seemed to really love these cookies. Although I'm partial to any chocolate peanut butter combo.

Swig Copycat Cookies:

Cookie culture is a real thing here in Utah. These Swig cookies are amazing and my personal favorite sugar cookie out of all the local cookie shops! This copycat recipe is super easy to follow and will make perfect treats for your neighbors if you happen to not live near one of these shops.. although I feel like they're creeping up nationally now too.

Halloween Whoopie Pies:

While yes these are originally a Halloween recipe, you could easily roll the edges in Christmas sprinkles to make it more seasonally appropriate! These come together with a can of frosting and boxed cake mix, so they're super easy to make!

Caramel Popcorn:

Derek is a huge caramel popcorn lover. We've been making this recipe since we first got married and it turns out perfect every time! This would be perfect to make in a big batch and then divide among cellophane bags to give to neighbors.

Oreo Truffles:

I used to make these all the time, but haven't done so in years! You simply crush up a bag of oreos, mix in a block of cream cheese, roll into balls, and dip in chocolate! So incredibly easy to make and taste incredible!

Chocolate Coconut Pecan Cookies:

I found this recipe in a church magazine at my mother-in-laws house a several years ago and took a picture of the recipe to try them when we got back to North Carolina. They were super delicious and are all the fun flavors of the holiday season in one delicious cookie.

Snickerdoodle Cookies:

I don't know when else you would eat snickerdoodles outside of Chrsitmas time... This is another great recipe to make in bulk and then wrap up in small bags for neighbors since they stack really well together!

Reese's Fudge Recipe:

I'm a huge fan of basically all the three ingredient fudge recipes on the internet. This one is a perfect variation with Reese's pressed into the top, and mixed into the middle as well. You could easily make this, cut it up, and place into Christmas tins, and you've got a super easy and amazing treat!

These maybe might be more of a summer cookie, but they're so good you need them in your life right now, promise. The combination of mini marshmallows and chocolate chips are out of this world!

The Best Brownie Recipe:

I first made these brownies back in 2013, and they have been my go-to since. They're perfectly soft and fudgey, with that brownie crackle on the top. They also cut up perfectly into squares when cooled, so you could easily gift them on a festive paper plate for Christmas.

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies:

These are such an easy and classic cookie to make. You could easily double or triple the recipe into one massive batch and divide them up into multiple plates for several families. These cookies come together in about 20 minutes with little effort.

Reese's Pieces Chocolate Chip Cookies:

These cookies are a chocolate and peanut butter rush! You could make them a bit more Christmassy if you can find some red and green Reese's Pieces (just googled, they don't exist), but these are still a great cookie option.

Simple Six Ingredient Granola:

If you're feeling a little sugar overload and want to gift something a little healthier that could be used for an actual meal, make a batch of this super easy granola! It only uses six ingredients, and could easily be packaged in a cute mason jar from the dollar store.
