Coombs Family Christmas Neighbor Gifts 2014.


Yesterday we started the process of making and delivering our annual Neighbor gifts.  

This year....it's all about......the SALSA!


We'll deliver these all throughout the holiday season to friends and neighbors.  Ready for the pun?



We made up 12 jars yesterday {6 Qt jars and 6 Pt jars}.
The families with a lot of kids got the bigger jars along with...


......these festive chips I found at Target!
{I'm sure you can imagine how giddy I was when I discovered them!}


Now.....it's time for me to let you in a little secret.


I BOUGHT the salsa.
I did.

And they were the EASIEST neighbor gifts I've EVER done.
{Chuckle}.

Let me explain - - - 
There are a few different salsa recipes that I LOVE but.....nothing tops our family's VERY favorite salsa from Costco - - El Sol Salsa.
{Fun Fact: El Sol is a tiny little yummy restaurant right here in Chandler!!}

When I thought about BUYING all of the ingredients to make the salsa myself - - and then chopping, blending and doing who knows what else - - I realized that I'd be saving time {and money!} by just BUYING it ALREADY made. 
And I'm SO glad I did!


And you wanna know ANOTHER fun little fact?
I'm selling my printable tags for YOU to use the idea!
Details HERE.

Upon checkout - - just let me know your family name and I will send you the PDF file.  There are 4 tags on 1 sheet and you can print them out HOWEVER many times you'd like!

How's THAT for easy?

Side Note: You can print these labels out on sticker paper and place them right onto the quart sized jar.

They're a little big for the pint sized jars so I punched a hole and tied em around with ribbon!

FeLiZ NaViDad!!!

  2. If I ordered the labels could you change "Neighbors" to "Friend"?
