What do you get for your neighbors for Christmas?

How about your coworkers?

Your neighbors and colleagues are people you would see everyday. At home,
your neighbors are closest to you. In case of an emergency in your home,
your family and friends who live far away may not reach you in time. Your
neighbors may well be the ones you have to count on to save your life, or
the lives of your loved ones.

If you work, chances are you would spend most of your waking hours in the
office with your coworkers. A poor working relationship with your
colleagues can make life plain miserable. Being great friends with your
colleagues whom you see everyday can make a major difference to the
quality to life in the office.

It is wise to build a good relationship with your neighbors and
colleagues.

Exchanging gifts is a   great way to help build rapport. Or at least a
cordial relationship.   As is helping one another, forgiving the careless
words that might hurt   and basically building an easy-going, give and take
relationship with the   people you see everyday.

Back to the topic of Christmas gifts. What do you get for your colleagues
and neighbors?
If you know them well enough, you might pick a gift that is in line with
their hobbies. A new set of golf clubs for an avid golfer if you budget
permits it. Eye cream for a neighbor or colleague who keeps complaining
about her dark rings under the eyes or crows feet.

For the office gift exchange or for coworkers or neighbors you might not
know very well, but would like to impress, Christmas gift wine might be
more appropriate, unless they are teetotalers, that is.

I know, the temptation to recycle unwanted Christmas gifts from last year
is strong and you know what? You might be able to get away with it. Two
rules to remember.

1. Don't give the gift back to the one who gave it to you.

2. Match the gift to the recipient. One man's junk is another's treasure,
so give these presents to people who would actually use them.

Christmas food gifts are very versatile and more affordable. These are
wonderful for neighbors and colleagues especially if you are afraid
something too personal might cause misunderstanding. Everyone must eat,
so good food would be appreciated by both sexes and by the young and old
alike. In fact, food gifts are your best bet.

Cookies make great Christmas gifts. If you have the time, you can bake
your own. If not, you can always buy delicious cookies beautifully
packaged as Christmas gifts for anyone who is not on a diet. Home made
Christmas cookies make cheap Christmas gifts that would be well received.

If you want to give something that shows some effort and save money as
well, how about giving Christmas cookies to everyone, in pretty basket
tins. Make them yourself in bulk quantities and you would save quite a
lot of money. Get flour, eggs and baking ingredients and cookie recipes
to make an assortment of Christmas cookies. Use cookie cutters to cut the
cookies into festive shapes. Put them in airtight tins or pretty baskets
and present them to your neighbors and coworkers for Christmas.

Too much work? Give perfume coffrets. For a family with women or teenage
girls, or even one with guys who are well groomed, a fragrance coffret
for the girls or guys or both, would be a nice change from food gifts.
