Christmas Gifts for Neighbors

Christmas Gifts for Neighbors

Good neighbors can be hard to come by so if you get along well with the people over the fence, you might want to consider Christmas gifts for neighbors.

Some general gifts

What can you possibly get for your neighbors, especially if you don't know them that well? Don’t worry, if your working knowledge of your neighbors is nothing more than an occasional hello, you can still find gifts that are thoughtful and generally liked by everyone. Gift baskets are great Christmas gifts for neighbors because they can be filled with just about anything and suit pretty much everyone's needs. Pick up a Christmas gift basket that includes a nice assortment of sweets including different types of chocolate, cookies and ribbon candy. Even if your neighbors don't like sweets, they'll be able to share this basket with their family and friends.

Gift baskets that include wine, cheese, crackers and others snacky foods are also great Christmas gifts for neighbors. These baskets can be found on-line, at your local mall or at specialty food stores. They generally start at $25 a basket.

Keeping with the holidays

Getting Christmas gifts for neighbors is simple if you stick with the holiday theme. Get them a basic holiday gift such as a poinsettia flower or a nice door wreath. Do not get them a real poinsettia if they have small children or animals because the leaves of these flowers can make them sick if they're ingested. A basket of homemade cookies or other Christmas sweets is also nice gift for your neighbors. If you don’t have time to cook, you can place all of the dry ingredients for the cookies in a clear jar and attach the cooking instructions to the gift. The mixture of flower, sugar and chocolate chips or other ingredients actually look really nice in a clear jar.

If you know them a little better…

If you talk to your neighbors more frequently than just saying hey when you see them over the fence, get them something that correlates with their hobbies. For example, if you neighbors are constantly in the garden, get them Christmas gifts for neighbors that include gardening supplies or plants. If you live in a cold climate, make sure that any live flowers you purchase are meant to stay inside!

Christmas gifts for neighbors that have children include a free movie night and babysitter. Offer to watch the kids for an evening while the couple goes out to dinner. You can include free movie passes in a Christmas card and write a little note offering your babysitting services. If you're lucky, you might have a teenager that you can offer up as a sitter instead! These Christmas gifts for neighbors are always appreciated.
