They can be used for decor, ornaments, gingerbread house candy, flavoring hot cocoa, and as a fun holiday treat to eat.
My kids thought that these neighbor gifts were so pretty and fun. My daughter asked to keep the box. If I didn’t have extra I’m not sure I would have said yes—that is just how great they are.

Directions on How to Make this Neighbor Christmas Gift: Candy Canes
Continue reading and/or watch the video on this page to see how to assemble this gift.
1- Fold and mold the box into its shape a bit with your hands so that you can more easily tie one end with ribbon.
2- Tie one end with ribbon. Now it will hold its shape.
3- Set the box upright and stuff it with 9-10 mini candy canes. 6 go in on one way and then you can stuff two in each of the remaining corners. Stuff the plastic wrappers down into the box so that they are not poking out of the ends.
4- Tie the other end with ribbon and tie a mini candy cane into that knot. See the video if this is unclear.
5- Tie the ribbons into bows that are about the same size as the other.
That’s it. These Neighbor Christmas Gifts of candy canes are so quick and easy and yet just so cute!
