Good Things Utah: Brett's Neighbor Gifts & Advent Calendar

Our local favorite Brett Lund has been making some guest appearances on local interest tv shows and we wanted to share his fun ideas with you. 

Easy Neighbor Gifts
Yesterday he featured some fun and easy gift tags for simple neighbor gifts. Best part about these cute projects is Brett has created a free PDF download so you can remake these tags at home. Simply visit the GTU project page and scroll down to find the pdf link.You can watch this segment on their website too!


Advent Calendar and Kit 
Brett designed this darling advent calendar that each day you create a door hanger with a pocket for treats and small toys. Best part is he's offering this as a kit you can purchase on his blog. But even better, he also gave us some of his kits to giveaway on our blog today.

Check out Brett showing this fun kit and how cute it is being assembled! And even though you'll be getting this after the first, consider making it for the last 12 day before Christmas or for a gift, or use it next year!!

I love Advent calendars and one of my family traditions is to do the 12 days of Christmas to one of our neighbours. It is a lot of fun for the kids to run up to a house leave a treat ring the doorbell and run like the wind so they dont get caught. I LOVE this project that Brett does.
