If you’ve lived in your home for a while, your neighbors may seem more like family than the people who live next door.

Some of us turn to our neighbors when we need an extra egg for a last-minute cake recipe. Others plan extravagant 4th of July block parties with everyone in the culdesac.

But no matter what type of relationship you have with your neighbors, you can show them you care with a friendly gift.

It doesn’t have to be big or elaborate, but a small little something can say “I’m thinking about you!” when your neighbor is celebrating a milestone like graduation or retirement. And for those of you with new neighbors, a gift can be a way to show them a warm welcome.

Below, you’ll find some of my recommendations for the best gifts for neighbors.

Food Gifts for Neighbors

Everyone loves food, right? So if you’re trying to put a smile on your neighbor’s face, you can drop a special treat on their doorstep.

If you have some time on your hands, you can make a homemade dessert or dish. Here are a few of my recipes that I like to gift to my own neighbors.

Homemade Treats I Like to Gift

But I get it… life can get crazy!

So if you don’t have time to make something in your own kitchen, you can buy something online and send it straight to their doorstep.

Find Southern Roots HERE.

Moving to a new neighborhood can be overwhelming. But being greeted with a plate of homemade cookies makes the process a lot easier!

So if you have a new neighbor, you can welcome them with a bath of cookies made with Southern Roots Sisters cookie mixes.

Find Sweeteez HERE.

You can also deliver a plate of Sweeteez cookies and treats that come in pretty individual packaging.

Opening the box on my doorstep to find this would certainly put a smile on my face!

Find Happy to Meat You HERE.

Do you have someone in the neighborhood that always throws the best cookouts?

If so, they’ll be thrilled to receive the BBQ Foodie Collection or the Burgers and Dogs from Happy to Meat You.

Find Adams Apple Co. HERE.

The packaging certainly isn’t everything, but it sure makes this gift set from Adams Apple Co. that much more appealing!

In addition to this Bushel and a Peck gift box, there are also boxes for the grill master, for the baker or for the ultimate entertainer.

Find Prantl’s HERE.

If you give your neighbor an almond torte from Prantl’s Bakery, just be warned that they’ll be knocking on your door asking where it’s from!

While light and fluffy, the torte has this rich flavor their tastebuds won’t forget. No wonder it was named the best cake in America by the Huffington Post!

Find My Grandma’s coffee cakes HERE.

The gift of one of our My Grandma’s of New England coffee cakes will be one they remember for a while.

The cakes are ultra-moist, surprisingly flavorful and great for sharing if your neighbors want to serve it at a family gathering.

Now, they’re available in Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry Walnut, Cinnamon, Cinnamon Walnut, Chocolate Chip, Blueberry, Granny Smith Apple, and Pineapple Coconut!

Find Miss Ginny’s HERE.

The buttery crunch of Miss Ginny’s Toffee is the perfect gift for any neighbor with a sweet tooth.

The company has been around for over 25 years and each toffee square is made in small batches to ensure quality and irresistable flavor.

A gift that’s almost always welcome? Wine, of course!

This selection will suit everyone’s taste—white wine, red wine, rosé and more. So if your neighbors plan on having a housewarming party, they’ll be set!

Home Gifts for Your Neighbors

Gifts for the home are always a good idea because they’re practical and helpful for any homeowner.

Find the door hanger HERE.

Give your neighbors a gift that symbolizes protection and peace with this My Saint My Hero door hanger.

It comes in a few styles and I love that it shows you put a lot of thought and meaning into their gift.

Find the candles HERE.

If you’re trying to find a neighbor gift for fall or winter, take a peek at the Just Jill Candle sets that will have their home smelling fabulous from the moment they light the wick.

Find the baker HERE.

You can also show you care with a homemade dessert.

If you make it in this seasonal dish from Temp-Tations, they’ll get a double gift with your tasty treat and this colorful baker.

Find the mini loaf pans HERE.

Or you can make some bread and gift them one of these mini loaf pans. How cute!

I linked them above, but if you missed it, you can always whip up my pumpkin bread recipe or my quick and easy banana bread.

Giving someone a gift basket is classic and traditional. Here are a few things you can throw in a basket that will surely bring them joy.
