Our first Christmas in our home in Florida our neighbor several doors down brought us a loaf of freshly baked bread wrapped in a tea towel on Christmas Eve night. It was the kindest gesture and I’ll never forget it. That was pretty symbolic of our life together as neighbors. We were always there for each other and they felt more like family than anything else. When we moved to California I was set on creating a similar community for our family here and in the last year we’ve been lucky to find neighbors that are like family. Since taking up bread making about a year ago, I’ve looked forward to doing what Ms. Carole did for us all those years ago. Delivering fresh bread to my neighbors as a gift, a gesture of thanks for being so wonderful to us this year.

Since I’m trying to spend less time in stores these days I was pleased I was able to find the packaging materials I needed online at Walmart.com. I got a Walmart+ membership a couple of months ago and I really enjoy the new benefit of W+ free shipping with no order minimum (restrictions apply, excludes oversized/freight & Marketplace items). Walmart+ has several worthwhile benefits depending on your location:
- Walmart+ free shipping, no order minimum on items shipped by Walmart.
- Free delivery from your local store on orders $35+ (restrictions apply) which you can use for groceries & more.
- Member prices on fuel. Save 5¢ per gallon at Walmart & Murphy stations. Access member prices at Sam’s Club fuel centers.
- Mobile scan & go: Check out as you shop to make store shopping fast and contact-free.
I wanted my neighbors to have the full gift experience so I thought it would be nice to wrap it in a linen bread bag. I also made a few batches of cinnamon rolls to drop off as gifts as well. I packaged them in these brown cookie boxes. After the packages were ready to go. Millie and I walked them over with our Christmas cards and left them on the porch of each home.
