Holiday gifts for neighbors
Neighbors are people that reside next door to you or within the same neighborhood. Neighborhoods can be close-knit communities that help each other out in times of need. Your neighbor quite possibly has become a good friend. Your neighbor may have come to your assistance more than once over the year: watched your house while you were away, gathered your mail, brought you a meal while ill. The holidays are a perfect time to show your neighbor just how much you appreciate them. Whether your neighbor has helped you in a time of need or is just a pleasure to have next door, give them a gift to let them know they are special.
Gift baskets are appropriate gift ideas for any holiday. They are an elegant and tasteful choice even if you don't know the personal preferences of your neighbor. Food gift baskets are an option that any neighbor is sure to appreciate. Give a wine and gourmet food basket. Include a favorite bottle of wine and gourmet foods such as meats, cheeses, spreads, and crackers. Add gifts such as spreaders, cheese boards, wine openers, and wine glasses for a special touch. Fruit baskets are also a great option if dietary restrictions are a concern. Wine of the Month and Dinner of the Month clubs are also fun gifts to give and last all year.
If your neighbor has home improvement projects planned, help them out by giving a gift certificate to a home improvement store. If your neighbor just purchased their home, a gift certificate to a general merchandiser such as Wal-Mart or K-Mart can help with purchasing necessities for their new home. Gift certificates to local restaurants and grocery stores are also appropriate gifts for your neighbor.
If you are close friends with your neighbor and you are more aware of personal taste, you can choose gifts that have a more personal touch. Give a monogrammed set of bath towels or personalized ornaments or platters. If your neighbor likes to entertain, choose a barware set, patio lights, crystal pitcher, or chip and dip set. If your neighbor loves to cook, give them a gift basket full of kitchen gadgets, spices, and a new cookbook. For the travelers, give monogrammed passport covers, personalized luggage tags, or guide books to exotic locations.
Show your neighbor how special they are by giving a holiday gift chosen especially for them. Whether you are thanking them for assisting you in a time of need or just for being pleasure to have next door, a gift during the holidays will surely be appreciated. Add a personal gift for an even more memorable holiday gift.
