No matter if you live in a small town or a bustling city, you have neighbors. Your neighbors aren’t just good for borrowing a cup of sugar, they’re an important part of your community. If you’ve lived somewhere for a long time, you’ve probably watched your neighbors grow, change, and even raise entire families. Plus, knowing someone friendly is nearby can make moving into a new place a lot nicer.

National Good Neighbor Day is today, September 28. Show your neighbor you care by sending them a token of your appreciation. Even if you’ve only said hello a few times, a nice gift will surely brighten their day!

Everyone loves something sweet, including your neighbors. If you’re looking for something small yet thoughtful, a cookies are the way to go. The message is up to you, whether you want to say thank you or tell them that they're a gem!

If your neighbor really has a sweet tooth, why not go big? Send them an assortment of chocolatey treats or a box of artisan truffles. Beautiful and delicious!

Rather treat your neighbor to something more luxurious? A gift basket can create an afternoon of relaxation or be the perfect spread for the next neighborhood gettogether.

Even if you don’t know your neighbors very well, it’s likely they will appreciate a nice bottle of sparkling wine. Plus with SmartGift’s flexible, instant digital delivery, your neighbor has the chance to swap their gift if it’s not exactly what they want.

For those neighbors who you know are early risers, gift them their morning cup of coffee or tea to start their day of on the right foot.

If your neighbor has always been there for you over the years or just moved in, express your gratitude with a beautiful bouquet. If your neighbor has more of a unique taste, a plant or garden décor is sure to delight.

Candles also make lovely gifts. They’re simple, elegant, and lend a sense of warmth and peace to any home. Since autumn has just begun, a votive candle perfumed with maple, cinnamon, or brown sugar is a great choice for your neighbor. For something that evokes the beauty of springtime, send a floral candle that smell of jasmine, orange blossom, lotus, or amber.
