15 Inexpensive Thank You Gift Ideas for Neighbours

Inexpensive doesn’t have to mean cheap! If you’re looking for a thoughtful and inexpensive gift for a good neighbor, we’ve got you covered. This article will show you some of the best inexpensive thank you gift ideas without breaking the bank.

Since it’s nearly impossible to get a good estimate of what people like, trying to come up with something that somebody will appreciate on your own can be hard. Luckily, there are plenty of things that cost even less than ten dollars and still make for great gifts!

Useful Gifts

What do you get the neighbor that has everything? Something useful they don’t have already, of course, like a new type of appliance or gadget they haven’t thought of themselves. Giving gifts can’t be impersonal, it should come from the heart.

But what if your giftee is someone who visits your house about three times a year, who you don’t really know that well, but want to give a memorable gift that is inexpensive but not cheap? What then? You might want to consider that appliances or gadgets are always a safe bet when the giftee isn’t your bestie.
