Neighbor Christmas Gift: Nativity
A nativity statue of the Holy Family makes a meaningful and gorgeous neighbor Christmas gift for Christians.
I was able to purchase these nativities for over 50% off in an after-Christmas sale after Christmas 2022.
It is an elegant acrylic figurine of the Holy Family. It has the option to light on and off.
When lit Joseph and Mary cradle the infant Savior in their arms bathed in light.
This is a beautiful visualization of the sacred Bethlehem night at the heart of all Christmas celebrations. It measures 5” tall.
Unfortunately, the photos do not do these statues justice.
If you watch the video on this page you may be better able to see how beautiful they are.
I bought them at an after-Christmas sale for around $2.50 each but I only bought 25 (I have 50+ neighbors I give gifts to) because they didn’t have 50 in stock.
Because I couldn’t purchase enough for all of my neighbors that I gift to, I decided that I would give them to the children I teach at church and also to the teachers of my children in church.
They were so quick and easy to assemble and they looked gorgeous when finished.
I decided I’d turn them on before wrapping them because we will be delivering some of these in the dark and I thought they’d be absolutely beautiful delivered on a doorstep late at night.

Directions on how to assemble these Neighbor Christmas Gift: Nativity
Continue reading and/or watch the video on this page.
1- Cut cellophane to fit the nativity statue.
2- Turn on the light and peel off the price sticker.
3- Place the nativity on the middle of the cellophane.
4- Sprinkle a little decorative shred around the statue.
5- I made sure the front of the nativity was facing the side of the cellophane that is largest then I bunched it up so I could complete step 6 and tied the cellophane with a string.
6- I pulled the cellophane down a bit to get some slack, then I pulled it taut around the front of the nativity so that the front of the nativity was easily-seen. Again, the photos of this do not do it justice!
That’s it, this Neighbor Christmas Gift of a nativity statue turned out beautiful and it only took a few minutes to assemble.
