Community Building Tip: Gifts
In today's fragmented world, people can improve it by reaching out to each other. Here are some ideas for building community in your neighborhood.

Share small neighborhood gifts at holiday times. It’s rare that anyone gets anything fun in the mail these days. Why not surprise your neighbor with a holiday treat? Keep it simple.

Some places sell gifts in bulk if you want to give the same or similar thing to everyone.  Swag makers are also an option if you look at their nicer items -- I've found some amazing swag in the last few years.  A pen with a flashlight in it.  An insulated lunch bag.  Reusable shopping bags with cool pictures.

I love anything with a flashlight in it.
Those come in very handy at the oddest times too!
Swag makers are a good idea.
I carried a pen flashlight from my mom's workplace for YEARS until it finally died the final death.
