Neighbor/Teacher Gift Idea

December 20, 2019

I love giving gifts! I have never read the Love Languages book, but I have been told by several people that gift giving must be my love language. I just find a lot of joy in finding something special for someone and giving it to them.

Growing up, my mom always made gifts for our neighbors and my Dad delivered gifts to other dentists in our area. I love the sense of community that a little gift can create. I have continued that tradition by giving gifts to our neighbors and close friends. It’s usually not anything big, but just a small thing to let them know we care and appreciate them!

In the past, I have given cinnamon rolls, bird see wreaths, sugar scrubs, and Pig Out Cookies, among others. This year, after my long hunt for the perfect chai tea recipe, I decided that would be the perfect gift! It’s such a comforting drink and something different than hot chocolate or coffee.

The original recipe I created was a Keto version using Swerve, an erythritol sweetener, but for these gifts I just used cane sugar. Swerve and sugar measure out the same, so you just need to swap the Swerve with 1 1/2 cups sugar. The rest of the ingredients are the same. You can find the recipe here.

I filled pint size mason jars, wrapped a ribbon around them, and added a small whisk! I also decided to print labels. The 2″ round labels fit perfectly on the tops of the jars. has a ton of different premade designs to choose from. You can personalize and print them on your own printer.

Do you give gifts to your neighbors? What’s your favorite gift that you have ever received from a friend or neighbor?
