Some of us actually have neighbors that still randomly stop by with cookies. We have a few of them, bless 'em! We think this If You Give A Mouse A Cookie Card Set ($50) is perfect for returning the favor. Just drop off a note (and some of your famous Lemon Icebox Cookies) to say thanks. Since the cards come printed with the first line of Laura Numeroff's classic story, we think we'd write:
If you give a mouse a cookie...she would eat them all before her husband came home. And if she ate them all before her husband came home she'd have to ditch the evidence in the communal dumpster. And while she was throwing away the paper plate she'd meet another neighbor who just happened to be baking cookies. And that neighbor would bring her more cookies. Which would remind her that she needed to write a thank-you note...
