It’s about that time of year where you have to think of gifts to get for, well, just about everyone. Perhaps your new next door neighbors are on the list, or the couple down the street is hosting a holiday party you want to be armed for. Here, we rounded up 15 of the best gifts you can give a neighbor that are nice, inexpensive, and good for just about anyone.
The neighbor gift can be a hard vibe to nail depending on how well you know them or not. Maybe you’ve seen them outside cooking or you know they just adopted a dog—all details you have mean for a better gift-giving strategy. Generally, this isn’t the kind of gift you’d need to spend a ton on, either. File neighbors under that thoughtful-but-not-expensive giftees.
Something nice and small for the home is a great place to start, like a high-quality candle or a cool spice grinder. Maybe they’ve just updated their patio, so a little woodless fireplace and outdoor blanket is where it’s at. You also can’t go wrong with anything edible, like good coffee, fancy chocolate, or nice olive oil. These make great neighbor gifts for holidays, housewarmings, and a little something just because.
