My neighbors and I always traded dogsitting services. Their dog passed away last year but they have watched my dog a lot recently. Sometimes on short notice because my dad was dying and then we had an out of town trip. They won’t take money but I’d like to get them something. Gift certificates aren’t great right now because nobody is going out to eat, activities are canceled, etc. I’m stumped and need ideas. Thanks! I’m thinking at least $50.

That's a hard one. I wonder how you feel about giving them an edible arrangement. I know my mom likes receiving them, not that she has gotten one since covid.

Groceries with everything they would need to make a meal? Steak and potatoes and a bag salad, for one example?

A gift card to their grocery store-I assume they are still getting groceries.

You could always do a visa or Amazon or Target gift card for online shopping.

Around here an Edible Arrangement is a nice thank you gift. It looks cool and tastes even better. They are pricey, but you said around $50.

Gift card for ordering a meal

I like the ideas already posted but here’s one more. My niece and her husband love ordering in because they both work. They were thrilled to receive GrubHub type gift cards. Or maybe you can give restaurant gift cards for places that deliver.
