We moved into a new neighborhood about a year and a half ago and we started getting to know our new neighbors. It’s interesting how different neighborhoods are.
In some of the neighborhoods we moved into they neighbors brought us so many house warming gifts that our kitchen counter was completely covered with them. This time when we moved, no one made an effort to get to know us. I think they didn’t know that we actually purchased the home because it was a rental before we bought it. So today I’m brainstorming ideas for Random Acts of Kindness for your neighbors to get to know them. These ideas are also great to bring a neighbor or friend when they are sick. So let’s get started, shall we?
1. Bring them a treat.
Everyone loves a treat! A lot of people don’t treat themselves. They feel guilty about splurging. So bringing them a treat gives them a reason to sit back and enjoy a minute to themselves. Especially if they are a busy mom! Am I right?
And guess what? I have some amazing $1.00 Off coupons for Blue Bunny novelties – Bunny Snacks and Mini Swirls. You can print off your coupons below, and look for them in your Valpack envelopes to get additional Blue Bunny coupons. (Available in select areas around Publix locations.)
I love Blue Bunny products and I’m so glad that they have these adorable Mini Swirls and Bunny Snacks. They are the perfect size for snacking or for a small treat at the end of the day to reward yourself because the kids are all still alive. Ha Ha!
How great do these Salted Caramel Pretzel Bunny Snacks look?
And these Birthday Party Mini Swirls? Amazing for a neighbors Birthday Gift, right?
I love my #BlueBunnySavings. You can use the coupons at any Publix store.
2. Do some yard work.
As long as you are out working on your own yard, why not just continue with the lawn mower into the neighbors yard? It’s one of those things that no one really enjoys doing so when someone does it for them it really means a lot. If it’s winter, why not continue onto their sidewalk when shoveling?
3. Just sit and visit.
I don’t know about you but I crave adult interaction when my kids were little. Now that they are all older and going in a million different directions I’m still left alone most of the time. And I know that my elderly neighbors crave visitors too. Sometimes all your neighbor needs is for you to check up on them once in a while.
4. Bring dinner.
Especially when there is a sickness in a family or someone has a baby, a dinner is a very welcomed gift. It’s really hard to have the energy to make dinner if you are sick or if you have been taking care of someone sick in the family. It’s such a nice thing to not have to worry about dinner. Here is one of my favorite casseroles to make my family and neighbors. It’s super easy!
5. Send a welcome kit for a new neighbor or a kind note to an old neighbor.
When you’re new to an area there is nothing better than some good recommendations for local restaurants, doctors, dentists etc. from someone who knows the area well. That’s why I love this printable from 30 Handmade Days for a new neighbor welcome kit.
But if you have lived in your home forever, just send a not of encouragement to your neighbor. They will love it. Everyone can use a little “pick-me-up” every once in a while.
Let’s all step outside and walk across the street and get to know our neighbors with a RAOK (Random Act of Kindness).
