I always love coming up with something fun to give my neighbors as a Christmas Gift. This year I decided to create a fun snack mix featuring our favorite brand of nuts, Blue Diamond. I wanted to do a mix of sweet and salty for the snack mix, so I decided to combine the Blue Diamond Smokehouse flavored Almonds with some of my favorite sweet treats and salted popcorn. Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds have such a great bold flavor, that I don’t need to add many other ingredients to create an exciting snack mix. 

One of Kyle’s all-time favorite nut is the Blue Diamond Wasabi and Soy Sauce flavored Almonds, so if you wanted to change up the snack mix to provide a more unique bold flavor, you can switch out the Smokehouse Nuts with the Wasabi and Soy Sauce flavored Almonds.

It’s always fun to create my own gift tag with a clever saying to go along with my neighbor’s gift, so this year I decided to give you the chance to download a copy. I’ve attached the printable pdf file at the bottom of this blog post. Print out and then write your name at the bottom to make it personalized.

As always, if you create this neighbor gift and share it on your social media, make sure to tag me (@everyday_ellis) so I can reshare to my stories!
