In today’s post: Save yourself some time this year with these super easy Christmas neighbor gift ideas!
So, let’s talk neighbor gifts. Christmas neighbor gifts has always been one of my favorite holiday traditions. I grew up helping my mom make plates that overflowed with homemade treats for our neighbors. It was so much fun that I’ve continued the tradition over the years with my own kids. But now that my kids are older, the holiday season feels busier every single year and it’s hard to find time to make elaborate plates of goodies. I’ve finally realized that there’s no rule saying Christmas neighbor gifts have to be homemade. Plus some people actually prefer to receive a gift that’s not homemade brownies (if you’re one of those people, feel free to send all the brownies to me!).
But I still love giving Christmas gifts to the people who make my neighborhood a great place. So to make life a little simpler for all of us, I’ve put together 17 crazy easy Christmas neighbor gifts. Each one comes with a cute little printable tag so all you need to do is buy the items and add tags and you’re ready to go. The items I included are fairly inexpensive so you won’t go broke making one for each of your neighbors – some are only about a dollar each. Happy gifting!

Sparkling cider neighbor gift: I don’t usually buy sparkling cider, so my kids LOVE it when someone gives us some for Christmas.
Hand soap gift: I think hand soaps are one of the best Christmas neighbor gift ideas! They’re practical, cute, and inexpensive. Check Jo-Ann’s for fun holiday scents that are only a dollar each!
Berry jam gift: Another cute Christmas gift idea for neighbors! Jars of jam look super cute tied with baker’s twine.
Soda gift: Here’s another gift idea that’s just over one dollar each. Extra soda is always appreciated when holiday parties are coming up!
Popcorn gift idea: Popcorn is a great gift idea for neighbors because it’s healthier than the goodies we usually share. Give a box of microwave popcorn or a bag of air popped corn.
Oven mitt gift: I found this cute red oven mitt at the dollar store (score!) and a package of wooden spoons. Add in a little cookie mix and this gift comes to around $2.75 each.
Oranges gift idea: Mandarin oranges (or cuties) are so good this time of year! Package up a couple in a cellophane bag from the dollar store for a very inexpensive gift everyone will love.
Nuts gift idea: Nuts are great to have on hand for your holiday parties, so neighbors will appreciate this gift idea.
Muffins gift: A friend game me muffins with this saying years ago, and I’ve always thought it was super cute! (From the song, I’m gettin’ nuthin for Christmas…)
Kisses Christmas gift: It’s the oldest Christmas pun in the book, but who doesn’t love Hershey’s kisses?
Warmest wishes gift: This tag could be used for many different gift ideas! I paired it here with a blanket (check the dollar store and Walmart for inexpensive fleece blankets), but it would also work with a scarf, gloves or mittens, socks, or even a package of hot cocoa.
Bread or cake gift: Pick up some loaves at your grocery store bakery and add ribbon and a cute tag for a super quick gift for neighbors or coworkers.
Candle neighbor gift: Scented candles can be pricey, but Walmart sells these pretty jar candles in a variety of great scents for just over $4 each. You could also use this tag with a string of Christmas lights or a mini flashlight.
Cookie dough gift: Packaged cookie dough is a great gift during the holidays because the recipient can bake it when unexpected guests arrive or save it until after the holidays!
Donuts gift: Use this tag with a package of mini donuts from the grocery store, or a box from your favorite donut shop.
Brownie mix gift: Ok, this one’s pretty funny, right?
Honey gift: Here’s another practical gift that’s also super cute!
I hope these Christmas gift ideas for neighbors make your life a little easy this holiday season!
