When we moved into a new home a few years ago, one of the neighbors stopped by to introduce themselves and brought with them a housewarming gift – a big tub for popcorn, filled with everything we would need for a family movie night. It was something I will always remember because a lot of thought had gone into this gift. It wasn't just a plant, a box of chocolates, or a bottle of wine. It was something that we could use as a family to spend time together bonding in our new home. It also made us feel very welcome in our new neighborhood, and we ended up spending many a night sitting in the middle of our cul-de-sac with a fire-pit bonding with our neighbors.
So I decided to put together a new neighbor gift with the same thoughts, something that would bring a family together, to bond, to spend time together, and something that would make them feel welcomed into the neighborhood.
Sitting around a fire, toasting marshmallows, and spending time with friends and family is something that we love to do, so I wanted to share that.
This gift pack is very easy to make. Simply place a piece of tissue paper inside a box, leaving enough hanging over the sides to fold it over your gift. Fill a couple of small clear plastic gift bags with marshmallows, and tie them with a ribbon. They look so much nicer than the big marshmallow bags, don't you think? Carefully place the marshmallows, along with a couple of packets of Graham Crackers, and Hershey's chocolate into the box. Fold the tissue paper over the top, pop the lid on, and tie with a piece of Jute cord or baker's twine.

This is a great idea. I don’t think I ever got a gift from a neighbor. Sad that most people don’t do that anymore.
Super cute idea! specially with the summer winding down…
