DIY Care Packages Spread the Neighborly Love
A good neighbor is more than just the house next door. A good neighbor gets your mail when you’re out of town. A good neighbor gives a cup of sugar (or a few eggs, or a bottle of Sutter Home!) when you’re short. A good neighbor potlucks, barbecues, or just simply enjoys a friendly conversation from the other side of the fence. Yes, good neighbors are a wonderful thing – but being a good neighbor? Now that’s even better.
On National Good Neighbor Day, share more than just a zip code with the people on your street by delivering personalized DIY care packages complete with custom printable notecards. Filled with favorites like sweet-or-salty snacks and Sutter Home Mini Bottles, these small gifts bring big-time happiness to the friends on your block. Never underestimate the power of a simple gesture – a few kind words, a selfless favor on occasion, and our easy-to-make doorstep deliveries are all it takes to make it a truly beautiful day in your neighborhood.
A few things you’ll need for your care packages:
- Small baskets, wide-mouth jars, tins, or other containers of your choosing
- Sutter Home Mini Bottles (available in many of our wines, including Sutter Home Red Blend, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Red Moscato, Chardonnay, and more)
- Packaged snacks and/or treats: Mixed nuts, dark chocolate, or dried fruit are excellent options for pairing with Sutter Home Mini Bottles.
- Sutter Home custom printable notecards
- Striped paper straws
- Ribbon or twine
Tips for putting it all together:
Write personal messages to each of your neighbors on cards. Next, assemble one to three Sutter Home Mini Bottles (depending on the size of your vessel) in the containers. Add in bagged snacks and a vintage striped paper straw for a pop of color. Tie twine or ribbon around the container for a decorative touch. Slip your personalized notecard into the care package, or punch a hole in the corner and thread it through the ribbon like a gift tag. Feel free to add fresh flowers or other goodies if you know exactly what your neighbors like. Finally, deliver to their doorsteps on National Good Neighbor Day!
