Check out this sweet and simple idea! Make up campground s’mores welcome boxes to hand out to campers at neighboring campsites. These small acts of kindness are a great way to bring some smiles to your fellow campers. Grab the directions and printable tags below and make up some campground s’mores neighbor gift boxes for your next camping trip.
Campground Neighbor Gift
Okay, this is an idea that I’ll admit: I had not heard of before! But apparently, for some campers, it’s totally a “thing!” On a couple of different occasions, on a couple of different camping trips, we were gifted with a small gift from campsite neighbors! One time a family was handing out little bundles of glow sticks to campers with kids. Another time campers 2 sites down from us were handing out little keychains with RVs on them!
Are campground neighbor gifts expected? NO! Definitely not! They are not expected or required in any way! They are simply small random acts of kindness that some people enjoy handing out to others! Think of them as the classic “taking flowers or cookies to the new neighbor on the street” sentiment.
We were making up party favors for our daughter’s birthday last year and had the idea to use some of the extra favor boxes to make up s’mores themed campground neighbor gifts the next time we camped. They turned out so cute!

How to Make S’mores Treat Boxes
Follow the directions below to assemble your own s’mores boxes!
These boxes were much easier to fill than I anticipated. Fitting the different food items inside is a little bit like a puzzle (or a game of Tetris!). Each favor kit holds enough food to make 3 s’mores treats, plus a couple of extra marshmallows and 1 extra strip of chocolate.
Here is how I arranged the ingredients:
- 6 graham cracker squares in the top right corner
- 4 chocolate bar sections under the graham crackers
- 4 marshmallow squares across the bottom of the box
- 1 marshmallow square (on its side) next to the chocolate and graham crackers
These treat boxes came together so easily and they really wow’d the recipients with how pretty they were.
The Finishing Touch
For the final touch, we tied some twine around the favor boxes and added our gift tag.
