I had a frantic ring situation this morning. I was leaving FI’s house when I slipped and fell in the snow, left hand first. Not thinking anything of it, I shook my left hand to get the snow off. I went to my car to put my bag away and that’s when I noticed my ring was gone!
I told my Fiance, and we were frantic. We dug in the snow searching for it, until his neighbor across the street came over. He’s a nice older gentlemen in his early 70s I’d say. Him and his wife came over to us and were helping us dig in the snow. he grabbed his rake and was raking through the snow and 30 mins of searching with numb fingers, he had found my ring.
I threw my arms around this old man I didn’t know and just started crying thanking him over and over again.
Fiance and I want to do something nice for them but we are unsure! Him and his wife didn’t have to come over and search for us, but the fact that they did was so kind to help us search it’s just awesome. They weren’t gonna stop until we found my ring.
Whats a nice little “thank you” gift we could get them? I thought a gift card somewhere would be nice but I just want something more. If anyone has any nice ideas id love to hear them!
This was definitely a swift kick in the butt we needed to get my ring re-sized! Not a great feeling to lose your engagement ring. It’s an awful feeling..

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 🙂

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! 😀

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 🙂
