{31 cheesy (but darling) neighbor gift ideas}

Looking for neighbor gift ideas? Have I got a list for you!

My mom passed this list on to me years ago, and I just remembered I had it this year. There were actually 101 ideas on it, but I pared it down to these 31. Okay, so they are totally cheesy, but super fun and easy ideas! If you're looking for something that you don't have to bake, there are several really cute options on this list.

I LOVE the Chex one.


  1. M&M's: Have a Merry & Most Wonderful Christmas!
  2. Soup or soup mix: Wishing you a "Souper" Holiday Season!
  3. Frozen or ready-to-bake pizza: Warm up to a wonderful holiday season, "topped" with Christmas cheer! OR...Hope your holiday has a lot of "pizza-az"!
  4. Apples & Hershey's hugs: A teacher can't live by apples alone...she needs hugs too!
  5. Popcorn balls: Here's hoping you have a "ball" this year!
  6. Loaf of bread: For being there when you were "kneaded", for "rising" to the occasion, large or small. For never "loafing" on the job, for helping others to "heel". No matter how you "slice" it, you do a terrific job. Merry Christmas!
  7. Jolly Ranchers: Have a Holly "Jolly" Christmas!
  8. Root beer: We're "rooting" for you to have a wonderful holiday season!
  9. Chex mix: Remember, Santa "Chex" his list twice! Happy Holidays!
  10. Nuts: We're "nuts" about you! Merry Christmas!
  11. Measuring cup (filled with candy): Wishing you joy beyond measure!
  12. Cinnamon & Sugar (or cookie sprinkles), in a cute jar: May your Christmas be sprinkled with laughter and love--Merry Christmas!
  13. Salsa: Adding a little "spice" to your holidays!
  14. Seasoning Mix: "Seasoned" with love--Merry Christmas!
  15. Sprite: May your Christmas be Merry & Sprite!
  16. Soda Pop: I'd "soda" like to wish you a Merry Christmas!
  17. Mints: Friends like you are worth a mint!
  18. Grater & Cheese: To a "grate" neighbor--Happy Holidays!
  19. Bear-shaped Honey: Have a "beary" sweet Christmas!
  20. Christmas-shaped Pasta (or any pasta & sauce): Have a "pasta-tively" happy holiday!
  21. Jam: Hoping you have a holiday "jam-packed" with fun!
  22. Cookie Dough: Here's a little extra "dough" for Christmas! or Everyone needs a little extra "dough" for Christmas!
  23. Divinity: May your holiday be divine!
  24. Toffee or Brittle: Any way you "break it", we're think you're the greatest!
  25. Apple anything (pie, muffins, bread, cobbler, or apples): You're the "apple' of our eye! Merry Christmas!
  26. Banana bread: We love you a whole bunch!
  27. Cupcakes: You take the cake! Merry Christmas!
  28. Carrot cake: We "carrot" a lot about you!
  29. Oranges: "Orange" you glad we're friends? I am!
  30. Sparkling Cider: Wishing you a sparkling holiday season!
  31. Set of thank you notes: We're so thankful for you!


    I also have to show you the most darling cookies--Nutter Butter Santas! Aren't they SO cute! I found them here.

Do you have a fun idea? Please share--I'd love to hear it!

One year, our neighbors gave us pizza dough with the same everyone needs a little more dough at Christmas time message as the cookies.

We made "Orange you glad..." burlap sacks for our neighbors. It turned out to be an inexpensive and healthy gift!
