Four Ways to Show Your Neighbor You Care

Four Ways to Show Your Neighbor You Care

Tomorrow, Sept. 28 2017, marks National Good Neighbor Day, and what better way to show your neighbor gratitude than to do something nice for them? Regardless of whether you know your neighbors or not, the day should be about connecting with people!

There are a variety of nice gestures that you can make in honor of National Good Neighbor Day, including sending a customized bouquet of flowers.


Go on a Thrift Store Outing

Ice breakers are tricky, but if done right, they bring the best out of people and forge unexpected friendships. Even if you know your neighbor, planning a thrift store outing is a creative way to shake things up. Find out what shops are in your area and hit the clothing sections! Some people like to pick out bold and loud vintage garb the other person has to wear for the day. Or, if you and your neighbor enjoy antiquing, pick out a gift for each other that is special and commemorative of the day!

Plan a Potluck

This is a tried and true tradition that many people enjoy, and your neighbors probably will too. Invite them over for a zesty vegetable or French onion soup for them to try, or, cook up your all-time favorite dish. Homemade pizza, cake pops, and cupcakes are all a sweet way of telling someone you care.

Clean their Yard

Ask your neighbor if they need a helping hand around the yard! You can rake leaves, help trim hedges, water their garden for them, or simply pick up any trash you see around their property. They will appreciate your sincerity during the process.

Give a Friendship Bouquet

Warm colors like red, orange, pink, and yellow are colors that signify friendship, and tulips and chrysanthemums represent loyalty and gratitude. There’s a color palette and flower type for every occasion. Find a floral arrangement you think works best and give your neighbor the gift of friendship.
