anndck:   Perhaps you could make a gift backet with a card, some tea and cocoa, cookies, whatever you think of as comfort food?  I think any personal gesture would be appreciated, and I’m sure they know how much the ring meant – they are kindred spirits!

I would send flowers & a gift card! That is seriously so awesome that came out during that kind of weather to help near strangers! So glad you found it though πŸ™‚

I was going to say a nice gift card for them to go out to eat together … I know you said you want to do more but they didn’t do it for the reward I’m sure they aren’t expecting anything a nice night out will be a good surprise to them put enough for then to get what ever they want to eat or drink

I like the PP idea of tea and hot cocoa. I was going to suggest a heartfelt thank you card and a homemade baked good. Maybe hot cocoa and cookies?

anndck:  I found a neighbors wallet on the sidewalk (we live in an apartment complex) and she brought me flowers and Girl Scout cookies! I was so thrilled. I would bring them some kind of sweets maybe!

Why not offer to take them out for dinner or a weekend brunch?  These sound like good people to get to know.

That is so sweet and nice of them! So glad you got your ring back! My dad and I had helped shovel a guy out who got stuck on our street. A few days later we found he left us a sweet card and a box of cookies on our door thanking us. I totally didn’t expect it but it made me really happy. I am sure they aren’t expecting anything either so anything will probably put a smile on their face!

Do they have any needs that you know of?  Snow plowing/blowing/shoveling?  Or if they’re in an area like new england, maybe helping rake their roof if they’re not able to?  A gift basket with a card for dinner is a really cute idea, but I’d make sure they don’t have any immediate needs first.

i would send them a gift card. Some people are diabetic or have other health problems and cannot eat sweets etc…. That is so nice of them to help! πŸ˜€

You should invite them over for dinner! They are neighbors and were doing the neighborly thing. You should recirpocate. And older people tend to love a good home cooked meal πŸ™‚
