Do you get writer's block when you sit down to write holiday cards? If you're like many people, writingholidaycards can be a nerve wracking experience. You want your message to be memorable, but you may become hung up on finding the perfect thing to say. Instead of focusing on perfection, remember the spirit of the season and channel generosity with these five tips.

1. Start on a positive note. Beginning your note with"Happy Holidays" "Merry Christmas" "Happy Hanukkah"etc. will set a bright positive tone for the rest of the card.

Example: Happy Holidays from the Jones family! Our Year has been full of many blessings.

2. Remember, it's a note, not a novel. Although it's tempting to recount everything that happened during the year, try to stick to the highlights. Focus on one or two memorable things such as a job promotion, a fun family vacation or your son getting into his dream college.

Example: We had a great time hiking through Yosemite this summer with the kids before Tommy headed off to the University of New Hampshire in the fall (Go Wildcats!).

3. Reflect on a happy holiday memory. Take family and close friends on a stroll down memory lane with a funny or sentimental holiday memory that will make them feel good.

Example: I had to laugh the other day when Mary and her friends were building a snowman. Remember when we built that huge snowman and dressed it in Dad's clothes? Even Nan and Pop-pop got a good chuckle out of that.

Try to write something personal in each card to make every recipient feel special.

4. Don't make it all about you.Whileyou should tell the recipient what's going on in your life, remember to ask about them and their families. Congratulate them on something good that happened this year, or say that you look forward to meeting up with them soon.

Example: Linda, congratulation on your new job! Your company is very lucky to have you! Hard work pays off. How are Mike and Hannah doing? Is Hannah still planning to play softball in the spring?

5. Bring your message home with a great sign off. End your sentiment on a positive note.

Example: We wish you and your family all the best in the coming year.

Whether you're new to the neighborhood or you've lived there for years, the holidays provide a great opportunity to meet your neighbors. What better way to get to know the people on your block or in your building than to bring them a small, thoughtful gift to break the ice? The size of the gift doesn't matter; what matters is building relationships with your neighbors.

Hot Cocoa or Apple Cider in Mugswill keep your neighbors toasty on a cold winter's day. Pick up a few sets at discount or department stores around the holidays.

Poinsettiasare a symbol of the holiday season. Give one to yourneighbor, or choose another winter flowering plant such as kalanchoe, amaryllis or paperwhite narcissus.

Cookie Mixes in Mason Jars are sure to express the holiday spirit. Fill the jar with mixes for holiday favorites like gingerbread or sugar cookies.

A bottle of wine or another favorite beverage is a nice surprise your neighbors are sure to appreciate.

Baked goodsare a timeless gift. While you're baking cookies for the holidays, bake a few dozen extra to give to your neighbors. Other yummy options include popcorn balls, bread or pies.

Better Neighbor Tip: To get ideas for neighbor's gifts, check out Pinterest. The image-driven social media site has photo boards full of great ideas that your neighbors are sure to love.

3 Benefits of Knowing Your Neighbors

1. Safety. Neighborhoods where people know one another tend to be safer than those where people are strangers. Friendly neighbors might feel more comfortable notifying authorities if they see suspicious activity.

Consider:

  • Startinga neighborhood watch program
  • Keeping an eye on your neighbor's house whilethey're out of town

2. Sharing. Tight-knit neighbors are more likely to share resources, whether it's a hammer or extra goodies from the garden.

Consider:

  • Helping your elderly neighbors with yard work, snow removal or tasks around the house.
  • Taking dinner to a neighbor who is under the weather or just had a baby.

3. Social Support. People with strong social ties are not only happier, they also tend to live longer.

Consider:

  • Organizing a block party or potluck dinner to get to know your neighbors.
  • Smiling and waving at your neighbors when they pass by your house.

65% of Americans do favors for their neighbors

3 Ways to be a Better Neighbor

1. Be friendly.A little small talk goes a long way. Say "hello" to your neighbors and try to get to know them.

2. Be considerate.If you share walls with your neighbors, be aware of the noise your appliances, gadgets and animals make, especially if your neighbor has a different work schedule from you. And, be sure to keep it down after 9 or 10pm.

3. Keep Your Place Tidy.Whether you live in an apartment, a subdivision or in a rural area, it's importantto keep your property in good shape. Sweep your doorway, pick up litter and mow your lawn.

43% of Americans speak to their neighbors at least a few times a week.
