Thoughtful Gift Ideas for Your Neighbor

How Would You Say Thank You to Your Neighbor Who Helped You?

Have you ever had a great neighbor?  Someone who is always willing to help, watches out for you, and makes sure you feel comfortable and at home in your neighborhood.  

They may not be family, but they are definitely someone you can count on.  So, what do you say to them?

How do you show them how much we care?  Sending thank you notes is a great way to start. 

🏘️ First, consider why you’re thanking your good neighbor.  Are they always quick to lend a helping hand?  Do they go out of their way to make sure you’re comfortable, well fed?  Maybe they just put up with your musical tastes and never complain about the noise (even when you forget to turn down the volume at night).

🏘️ Whatever the reason, make sure your thank you note is specific so your neighbor knows exactly why they are being thanked.

🏘️ You really are the most incredible neighbor to have.  You’ve always been so polite and friendly, but this week you have really gone out of your way.  Thank you so much for taking my daughter to school, I hope I am back up and running by Monday,  You have been tremedous this week, and thank your wife for her chicken noodle soup, it was amazing.  I’m starting to feel better already.

🏘️ I cannot believe you took care of all that snow for me.  My other neighbor would not have done that, thanks again for helping this single mom out, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.

🏘️ Thank you for the warm welcome to your neighborhood.  We are beyond thrilled to be here.  It’s wonderful to be surrounded by such nice neighbors who look out for each other.

🏘️ When I moved to this neighborhood, I felt like an outsider. It can be challenging to get to know people when you’re new in town, but you made that transition easier for me.
