Do you have a new neighbor moving in next door or across the street? If so, it’s always nice to make them feel welcome in the community by dropping by with a housewarming gift. The following are a few ideas that we love to get you started!
A small gift basket any foodie will enjoy – Bring over an artisanal food basket full of crackers, jams, cheeses and olive oil from local shops in your neighborhood. Is there a great winery nearby? Throw in a bottle of local wine.
A potted plant – A colorfil plant is a nice, inexpensive gift that will help bring a natural touch to your neighbor’s home decor. It’s also something that won’t get in the way – they can use the potted plant in pretty much any room of the house.
A coffee table book – You’re probably wondering what kind of book to buy if you have no idea who your neighbors are and what they like. The solution? Try a book from your city or of a landmark within your town.
A board game – By giving them a fun board game, you also give them an incentive to invite you over for an evening to play that board game. It’s a great way to have some fun while getting to know your new neighbors.
