Easy Autumn Gifts for Neighbors (Free Printables!)

Celebrate autumn with these fun and sweet gifts for neighbors! These gift ideas for neighbors are so easy to assemble and you get FREE autumn printables to make them.

Easy Autumn Gifts for Neighbors with Free PrintablesI just recently moved into a neighborhood with new construction. We bought a brand spankin’ new house, and it’s the first time I’ve ever done anything like this! The nice thing about moving into a new neighborhood is that not only are you new – but so is everyone else.

Which is a great opportunity to meet new folks and make connections. I absolutely love meeting new people and always have. And if you’re curious as to how I do it, I’ll let you in on my little secret: easy gifts for neighbors.

Fall is finally here (the first official day was September 22nd), so I’ve made my gifts for neighbors be autumn related. I’ve also got free printables so that you can put my strategy into practice today. It’s really simple, my friends.

You’re going to go to your local grocery store bakery and buy some sweet treats: baked goods like donuts, cookies, or cupcakes. Then you’re going to get some pretty treat containers and a little baker’s twine.

FINALLY to finish, you’ll print one of my labels and stick it on the container after you’ve put a treat inside.

Autumn gift ideas for neighbors with baked goodsDidn’t I say it was easy??

I actually gave out my first neighbor gift this week (the cupcakes pictured) and I can’t wait to give more! Everyone is happy when you stick a sweet treat in their face, and it’s the perfect icebreaker. You like treats – I like treats – we’re neighbors – look at everything we have in common!

Trust me, my method has a 100% success rate. I highly recommend assembling several at a time since you will buy your packaging (somewhat) in bulk as well as the treats.

I mentioned going to the grocery store to pick up your treats, but if you’re a baking kind of person, here are a few options for you from my other blog DIY Candy. I actually have a few no bake recipes in here as well:

Let’s face it – people are going to appreciate whatever you give them whether it be store bought or baked in your kitchen. It’s really up to you what to use in your fall gifts. You’ll definitely want to use my free autumn printables, though. Here’s how everything came together!
