Do you want to meet your new neighbors after the move but don't know how? Use this holiday season as an opportunity to introduce yourself to your community and spread some joy and happiness in the process! Below, we have provided you with seven gift ideas for your neighbors that won't break the bank!


Santa Claus isn't the only one who likes sweet treats around the holiday season! So why not make your new neighbors a delicious edible gift that will have them crawling down your chimney to find out your recipe (but if they actually attempt this, please call the police).

Peppermint Bark

This sweet is as tasty as it is easy to make for your neighbors! This cost-effective recipe only requires five ingredients and around an hour of your time.

Caramel Popcorn

Get things popping by making some caramel popcorn. This recipe is easy, cheap, and guaranteed to be a hit on your block!

Chocolate-Dipped Pretzel Rods

Who doesn't love chocolate-dipped foods? The salty and sweet combination of pretzels and chocolate is downright addictive. This simple recipe not only tastes good, but it also looks fantastic.


The holidays can be stressful, and sometimes we don't have the time or, let's face it, the energy (especially after a move) to stand there and make something from scratch. If you're not in the cooking mood, these store-bought items can make just as thoughtful a gift!

Pack of Cards

Playing cards are a fantastic gift, as they are incredibly versatile and a great way to bring the family or potentially the neighborhood together! This gift lets your neighbors know that you like to play cards and may open the door to future game nights.


Everybody needs soap! This affordable gift is available all over and covers an essential item that everyone runs out of eventually. You can choose to give your neighbors hand soap, dish soap, or even a homemade bar soap if you're so inclined.

Dollar Store Games

Another great way to show off your fun side is to gift some dollar store games. These gifts are pretty inexpensive, so you could potentially give multiples to each family.

Oven Mitt

Nothing gets someone out of the holiday spirit quicker than burning their hand on the stove. With all the cooking going on this time of the year, a cheap and festive oven mitt is a thoughtful way to show you care. You can even add in a spatula or whisk if you're feeling extra generous.
