Default Need a cute "late" poem - creative minds out there?

Okay - I didn't get neighbor gifts out - and now I want to do something before New Year's.

I have canned (Planter's) mixed nuts and cashews to hand out. I need some cute little saying to go with them --

Maybe being a nut I forgot to deliver them earlier? I've done a nutty neighbor type poem before, so don't want to do that again....

Something about too much to do and not enough time before Christmas?

Anyway - I figure nuts are something they can just keep until whenever they want to eat them and they may use them for New Year's anyway....

I'm SO not creative in the poem/ sayings dept! Thanks for any/all help!

that's really cute. I've also had neighbors do a Happy New Year's gift rather than Christmas. you could just do that.

It's still the Christmas season, right? I wouldn't say anything about being late, just hand them the gift and tell them, Merry Christmas! We're glad you're our neighbor.

From the title, I thought you wanted a 'I'm late' poem to announce a pregnancy! sheesh

Just make it a New Year's gift. Then you're not late anymore.

Too funny! Yeah, I don't think you need to put anything about being late.

You make me laugh HARD, since you know me better than to know being pregnant isn't an option! LOL

This is one we've used in the past:

Is it Christmas yet?
Or are we too late?

Even though we’re quite overdue,
Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year, too!


In fact, we missed a couple of friends this year so they'll be receiving a gift w/this poem this week!
