Holidays are a great time to share some neighborly love. If you’re looking to give a present to people you often see and share property lines with, here are a few ideas you could go for:
1. Gift Baskets
If it’s Christmas, you can go for Christmas gift baskets for the neighbors and family. A Wine & Cheese basket is a great option. If they are not wine drinkers, they would appreciate having a bottle to serve the guests.
The bottle of wine doesn’t need to be expensive. A normal one would do. As for the cheese, you can go for a simple one like cheddar, or a fancier one like Brie. You can also add some water crackers and fresh fruit. After you’re done with the basket, tie it with a bow and write something nice on a note and attach it on the top of the basket.
If you’re going to give the same gift to more than one neighbor, you can buy the items in bulk and divide them. If you’re close to the neighbors, you may want to add something extra like a set of wine glasses.
2. Delivery Menu Organizer
This is a unique gift idea that you can give to your neighbors. You won’t need a good budget for this, but you would have to take out time. Here’s what is required.
• Ask the neighbors about their favorite local restaurants.
• Go to those restaurants and gather all the delivery menus.
• Organize all the delivery menus.
• For an extra touch, put the gift inside a gift back with a kitchen item. Santa and Mrs. Claus salt and pepper shaker is an example.
Give this gift to your neighbors. All they’ll have to do is take out the delivery menu organizer and pick what they want to be delivered.
Ornaments are a great gift to give out to neighbors. You can purchase PolarX Ornaments, or create yourself. Handmade ornaments serve as the best presents.
Ornaments can be bought from local gift shops. However, to add a personal touch to the ornament, you can buy them online. Online websites allow you to personalize the ornament before it is delivered. A single ornament would cost around $15-$25.
4. House baked items
If you love baking, then giving this present to your neighbors won’t be any problem to you. There are several options available such as cakes, cookies, donuts etc.
Even if, you don’t know how to bake, you can learn it from a recipe book or an online video tutorial. If you still aren’t going to bake, there are bakeries that sell home-cooked goodies, and you can buy some items from there. The neighbors are going to appreciate this present.
Your neighbors may have a High Holiday spirit. A terrific gift idea for such neighbors is a platter for their dining set. These platters can feature multitude designs. You could go for gingerbread man platter or a Christmas cookie platter.
To make this gift memorable, you could engrave a poem on the top or beneath the platter.
You can select one of these five presents to give to all the neighbors, or you can give separate presents to each of them. Your cost will depend upon the number of neighbors you pick to give out presents to.
