What to get lovely neighbours who don't 'need' anything?

We have lovely neighbours that we don't see a lot of. They are always friendly, would help us in an emergency (even a minor one!) and are very kind to DS - they remember his birthday, bring him presents at Christmas etc.

They are in their 50's, very well off and probably don't 'need' anything.

I usually end up giving them nice wine/cheese type presents but would love to get them something a bit different/unusual this year.

Any ideas Christmas mnetters? Budget up to about £40.

I love the David Austin link, never mind the neighbours, I think I'll be treating myself grin. Some great ideas on there, thank you!

I buy my neighbour heavily scented climbing or rambling roses, and enjoy the heavenly scent wafting over.

My amazing neighbour has a stunning garden, and love roses, (who doesn't) so she always likes them.

We gave our neighbours a fancy bird feeder and food last year, which they were thrilled with.

Fruit bushes for their garden and hope they have too much so you have to help them eat them the bargain thread had a link to blueberries from the telegraph, you could get those and some nice tubs.
