Since I've been married and lived in Utah, I've started to hear this phrase that I've never been familiar with: neighbor gifts. Growing up we gave gifts to our neighbors and friends in the ward (usually Mom's amazing toffee), but I never recall the term "neighbor gifts." Perhaps its a Utah Mormon thing?
Anyway, its a pretty big deal around here--our neighbors pull out all the stops and December is full of treats, homemade goodies, handmade gifts and ornaments, etc. I have always wanted to give toffee like my mom did, but I've never been able to dedicate that much time to cooking toffee. This year Jayson suggested something different:
Little 12 ounce bottles of special sauce. They were adorable. Don't you wish you were our neighbor???
