    I give out all of my gift bags every day, but I am not receiving very many to give out. I save my precious few gift bags to drop in the towns of my neighbors who have been the most neighborly the last few months, and I try to focus THOSE on neighbors with the lowest gift card counts to help my neighbors that look like they need them most.

    I wish I could afford to buy a bunch to give them to ALL my favorite neighbors, despite whether they need them or not. I LOVE dropping gift bags, I love hiding them, I love having a way to "gift" to my neighbors besides just tapping their buildings. Maybe Santa will bring me some Google Play cards and I can splurge on some gift bags. :)

    This.
    Also if a neighbors puts their landing tree all the way in a corner away from anything to tap on, no gift bags for you! One year!

    I don't have any neighbors besides my 2 feeder towns but I don't even drop off gifts for those town. I use them to drop off bags for me. :)

    I have 136 bags at the moment. :?

    I drop them off, but there is no routine that I follow. I give them out how I want. One day I start at the beginning of my neighbor list...the next I may start at the end. I might just reciprocate one day...the next time I may give it to those who haven't giving me any. One day I might give to low collection numbers of neighbors...the next round of drops might go to high collection numbers of neighbors. There is no method to my madness. :)

    I thought I had plenty, but quickly realized I was gonna run out!!! Which blows cause I too want to share the wealth!! There's no point in holding on to them!! I'd want to see all my neigboreenos getting everything!!

    I drop one per neighbor every day, but I'm new to the game and and have only added about 20 at this point. I'm not sure I can handle more than 30, let alone 100! Too date, outside of a family member who plays, I've only received about 5 in return. But most, or maybe all but 2-3?, are level 37 and I understand from reading here they're in short supply!

    I started out leaving one per neighbor because that's all I could do. After realizing only around 10 of my neighbors are leaving them for me, I stopped. I only leave bags for those that return them.

    EA has been very stingy this time around.

    I'm fairly new also, I have about 20 neighbors and collect enough to give each 1 a days and some get another. It is fairly simple to keep track as I give one to the ones with 5 when all gone start with the 4's never reached 3 yet

    Hi Betty, I'm one of your neighbour and drop bags every 2-3 days when I have enough to go around, just as a tester I have dropped you 2 bags out of my rounds for tomorrow, however I looked around your town and you have 5 bags near your tree, 5 on squidport, 2 near Springfield mall. 1 outside Chanel 6 and a couple between houses. Can you see them ? I wonder if its a glitch because I don't recall any from you, and I'm sure you have dropped some, the elfs could have unwrapped them without me seeing depending where you leave them.

    I do my best to leave bags I just don't get enough of them to spread to all my neibors and it sucks. I give bags to the ones that drop them I'm my town first then I do my best to spread out the rest bags just seem hard to find.

    I'm fairly new to this game & I have a question. How do I drop off gift bags? I have 1 neighbor & 1 other Springfield, that's it. The gift bag icon shows up in other sp but not at my neighbor. What does that mean??

    Thanks.

    I always drop the gift bags I get. I try to return the favour to my neighbors who drop gift bags in my town but just don't get enough bags. That sucks!

    Thanks! I think you're right. I don't see the tree in her town. I accepted a f/r today and was able to drop gifts in their town!

    I get all kinds of gift bags. But I have some pro neighbors , also I drop 5 at a time, right on the tree , that way people seem to remember me. I got a token in one today! Purple house lights. Also I have three brown houses in all three directions of my tree, making it real easy for my friends to get in and get out. One of my friends dropped five in the water. I went right to their town and did the same.

    I feel bad that I can't leave everyone gift bags. I am not getting many at all. Today, I only got 15. I'm not getting any from neighbours towns. None. I only get them from my Springfield.

    I was dropping one bag per neighbor until I run out and then next time I visit my neighbors I would drop gifts starting from where I left off the day before so at least every other day everybody would get one from me. Now I stopped dropping to those that make me scroll all over their town to find something to click on. From day one I put brown houses right next to my tree and I don't tap any other buildings that are near my tree until I see a handshake. It takes long enough to scroll through the neighbors without having to spend time searching for a building to tap on.
