Your neighbors greet you each morning and night, help you if you ever need a hand and keep an eye on your home. They’re not just your fellow community members, they’re also your dear friends. To show your neighbors you appreciate them this Thanksgiving, we’re rounding up four easy ways to give thanks for all they do.
Organizing a potluck is one of the best ways to show your neighbors you’re thankful for them (and one of the most enjoyable too). Spend some quality time with those you hold dear, fill your bellies with the most delicious festive foods and make memories that’ll last for years. If everyone is responsible for bringing a dish, you won’t have to worry about cooking a feast. The community amenities can also be used to host your celebrations if that’s what you choose.
What’s sweeter than dropping off baked goodies at your neighbors house? Bake a cake, some cookies or some other type of dessert to show your fellow community members that you’re thinking about them over the holidays. If you have some extra time, throw in a personalized touch by wrapping your treats up in some cellophane and ribbon with a hand-written card.
If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, you may want to decorate your home. A wreath is easy enough to make yourself and it’s fairly inexpensive too. Follow this step-by-step guide to make your own, and design one for your neighbor as well. It’s the perfect homemade gift and it can be reused each year. Hang it on your door, overtop of your fireplace or in the foyer of your home.
Save your neighbors from having to cook lunch or dinner by cooking a little extra one night. Put aside a portion of the meal for yourself, and pack the remainder up for them. Leave them a note on top and drop it off at their door. It seems like a small gesture, but we promise it’ll go a long way. Just remember to be mindful of any food allergies or dietary restrictions before you make the meal.
