I have bought my neighbours a bottle of pierre darcys champagne is this an ok gift?
I have never bought outside of family before. I didnt even know it was champagne at first ha.

Sounds lovely, but why have you unexpectedly bought for them?

Of course it's okay, as long as they're not tee total!

They have taken in so many parcels for me i wanted to get them something. They also bought the kids selection boxes a couple of year ago.

Is it wrong that i have?? confused

Sounds lovely OP, I'd be really happy to receive a nice unexpected gift like that

That's a lovely thought, op. They'll be delighted smile

Thank you all for the reassurance! I hope they do like it, and dont think its odd of me to buy for them

Are you my neighbour? I hope so!

I take in lots of parcels for my neighbours because my shifts mean I am home a lot and I would be delighted to receive champagne for doing so (but I don't expect a gift if you know what I mean). It's a lovely, Christmassy thing to do santa

Nothing wrong, but I was wondering if there was a lovely back story, such as they bought you a random National Lottery ticket to thank you for looking after their cat & you had won £10k.

Ha that would be an amazing gift, a winning ticket!

Do i give it on christmas eve so not to disturb their christmas day?

My neighbour just gave me a box of quality streets for taking delivery of her post etc and I wasn't expecting it. I was well chuffed. So I think your neighbours will be very happy

Christmas Eve, so they can chill it for the next day.

I think that's lovely. I'm sure they will be really pleased smile

It's perfect (unless they don't drink! grin) take it round on Christmas Eve.
