Changes are part and parcel of your life and so they are everywhere in and around you. That said, when it comes to having new changes in the area you live in, you might come across your neighbours being relocated or replaced.
For those of the new people, you can make them feel more welcomed in the environment by mere gestures and gifts.
To do this, try to understand their background and give them meaningful gifts accordingly. For instance, if the couple has moved just after getting married, probably to build a family of their own, try gifting them wedding gifts that are suitable for the occasion.
Similarly, if they are new to your city, you can chat with them about the attractions and events currently happening in and around the city!
There are a plethora of gestures that you can make and imprint the best version of you in front of them by doing a small bit, like gifting them meaningful things to make their day!
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the thoughtful gift ideas to welcome your new neighbours.
Giving flowers is a kind of gift that can never go wrong. So when you visit them for the very first time to exchange sweet pleasantries, you can carry some vibrant looking flowers to brighten up their new house as well as their day!
In fact, try picking flowers from your garden to give them, along with some new seeds, to help them grow their garden in the new home.
2. Fresh Bakery Items
As we all know that food can be a great way to bond with one another, so why not try this?
While visiting your new neighbours for the first time, carry some next-door freshly baked goodies from your local bakery to make their day sweeter with your presence.
By doing this, you are introducing them to their very first food experiences in your neighbourhood.
3. A Trail Map
One of the most important things that one requires when moved to a new neighbourhood is navigation. By giving your new neighbour a trail map, you will be able to help the new, confused minds about new things around them.
A trail map can also navigate them to different hikes around your neighbourhood and make their weekends more active and enjoyable.
To make it more personalised, you can mark some things on the maps that caught your attention and suggest them to have those experiences which you felt!
4. A Subscription to Local Newspaper
The new neighbours could be shifting from another city, state or even country. So naturally, they will be unaware of the possible local newspaper for your area. You can come out as a helpful and caring neighbour if you give them a subscription to the local newspaper.
This idea is definitely underrated and will do wonders, so try it for yourself!
5. Take-Out Menus
Pizza and game nights are a universal thing and you know it!
You can have your own with the new members in your block by subtly handing them the take out menus out.
If they seem interested in the idea, call for pizza and make it a watch party and if not, the take out menus are always something that everyone requires, so a win-win for everyone!
6. A Pre-prepared Dish
Shifting to a new home means setting up everything from scratch. This means the kitchen, which is the most challenging part to set up, will not be up to date as soon as the newbies walk in.
What you can do is ready a lasagna or any one-pot dish and give them to pop it in their oven whenever they want and enjoy the delicious homemade meal that they might be missing.
Changes in life are inevitable. It is up to you and the people that surround you to make it absolutely smooth or an absolute disaster.
Imagine that you are the one who’s moving to a new neighbourhood and wants to gel in as quickly as you can. Now, think of the way that you would’ve wanted to be treated to feel welcomed and simply do that for the people that are new in your area.
Also, it’s not about how much money you spend to give them something huge, but it’s the little gestures like watching television together or going on hikes with them that matters.
Use the above-listed ideas and you’re definitely going to be their favourite person to hang out with forever!
