Last Minute Neighbor Gift Idea (with Free Printable!)

I just moved into a newly built neighborhood and have been thinking about what I should pick for a neighbor gift – since everyone else around me is also new.

I don’t know a lot about my new neighbors, but I do know one thing: they like colorful doors. Hilarious, right? We jumped on the colorful door train with a bright orange door – this was after noticing that two neighbors had red and lime green doors.

After that a few other houses got bright doors, and there’s even a vibrant aqua. I’m thinking, “this is going to be a fun group, so the neighbor gift I choose has to be fun too.”

I decided to give them delicious smelling body with colorful tags (with fun sayings) that I designed just for this purpose.

This is perfect for last minute neighbor gifts since it doesn’t take long to assemble at all!

For the neighbor gift, I wanted to choose something that everyone would like. I got these Softsoap limited edition body washes in the mail, and they smell AMAZING!

There are two scents – Frosted Wish (cherry) and Iced Kiss (peppermint). All you’ll need besides that is some baker’s twine and my free printables:

Soap gift tags for neighbors


All you’re going to do is cut about an 8″ length of the baker’s twine with a pair of scissors. Print out the tag printables, then cut out and punch a hole in one corner

Tie the tag into an open loop. Open the lid and close it down over the loop. Yes – you’re done! You assembled an awesome smelling neighbor gift in about a minute flat.

And I promise you, it’s going to be a neighbor gift that anyone will love. I feel like the Softsoap Iced Kiss is good for a dude and the Frosted Wish is perfect for a gal, but honestly either one works for any gender or age. If you try this gift idea, let me know in the comments.
