We’ve rounded up 7 of the best inexpensive Christmas gifts for neighbors that won’t break the bank but are still creative and useful.

Inexpensive Neighbor Christmas Gifts

1. Baking Spirits Bright

A holly berry spatula and apron with gold ribbon and a 'Baking spirits bright' tag.

For this neighbor gift, you’ll want to grab festive and fun baking tools like whisks, aprons, hot pads, and spatulas. Seagull Book has inexpensive items that are perfect for the holiday (use code JESSICA15 for 15% off your entire order).

You can do a few kitchen tools or pair one with your favorite prepackaged or homemade baking mix.

2. Just Popping In To Wish You a Merry Christmas

Popcorn and soda are a classic movie night pairing and who doesn’t love a good movie night??

You can purchase a large box of popcorn bags from any club store and pair it with a 2-liter soda or a few soda cans. If you really want to make the gift fancy, you can add popcorn buckets from the dollar store.

3. To Help You Wrap Up The Holiday Season

Roll of wrapping paper and tape with tag that says 'Help you wrap up the holiday season.'

This gift idea for neighbors comes in handy for anyone who’s run out of tape or wrapping paper in the middle of wrapping (speaking from experience).

Your neighbors will thank you for this practical and inexpensive gift! You can grab packs of tape and rolls of wrapping paper at the dollar store.

4. Sleep In Heavenly Peace

White blanket wrapped in white ribbon with 'Sleep in heavenly peace' tag.

Your friends and neighbors are sure to love a Christmas-themed blanket with matching gift tag that highlights a line from the beautiful Christmas hymn, ‘Silent Night.’

Christmas blankets are usually deeply discounted during the holiday season, so check your local grocery and discount stores.

5. We Tissue a Merry Christmas

Box of tissues with gold bow and 'We tissue a Merry Christmas' tag.

Christmas, unfortunately, falls during cold and flu season, so you can be sure that this neighbor Christmas gift will get used!

Most grocery stores sell $1 boxes of tissues or you can check the dollar store.

6. Wash Your Hands, You Filthy Animal

Soap on white table with 'Wash your hands you filthy animal' tag.

This is a risky neighbor Christmas gift idea (for anyone not familiar with Home Alone), but it is funny and practical nonetheless!

If you’re brave enough to give this gift, check bath product stores for holiday sales where you can stock up on several soaps for about $3 each.

7. Homemade Treats

Small brown box full of homemade Christmas treats with a tag that says 'Let it snow.'

This is a simple neighbor gift that doesn’t require a clever tag! Just your favorite homemade Christmas treats in a cute box with a simple Merry Christmas.

I found the cutest honey jars online at CB2 (a crate & barrel company) and bought an assortment of honey on Amazon to pair with. Have made good hostess and neighbor gifts!
