So, you’ve moved into your dream house, and you’re now the proud owner of a property you can call home. But it’s not just about new walls and furniture – it’s about welcoming people into your new neighborhood. You want to make sure that every one of your neighbors feels welcome in your community, so why not start with thoughtful housewarming gifts? The following products are sure to delight any new neighbor.
Brownies and/or cookies
If you’re looking for a welcoming gift that’ll be easy on both your wallet and your waistline, brownies are just the ticket. You can pack them individually or line them in a gift basket – it’s your choice! The best part about them is that they only require four simple ingredients: flour, butter or shortening, sugar, and eggs. You probably have all of these ingredients in your new kitchen. Most neighbors are familiar with brownies and will appreciate their deliciousness even more than homemade cake or cookies.
Cookies are also a great gift for anyone, whether they’re new neighbors or not. The best part about giving cookies as housewarming gifts is that you can make them with love and care. That’s right: you’ll have to put some effort into these treats so that your recipient knows how much you care about them! And if your neighbor doesn’t like the cookies (which is unlikely), then maybe they aren’t meant to be friends after all!
It’s nice to give your new neighbors something they can enjoy together. Wine is the perfect option because it’s something people can sip on while chatting and catching up. This is a good solution for people who dislike baking or cooking. Buy a bottle of wine, and you won’t have to clean a messy home (like after baking cookies). It also provides an easy way to show you’re a thoughtful gift-giver: Pick up one bottle of wine and call it a day.
There are many factors to consider when choosing what wine to buy as a housewarming gift. First, think about their taste. Do they like fruity wines or dry ones? Do they prefer reds over whites? If you don’t know their preferences yet, look for some red blends with medium-to-high alcohol content. These wines tend to be semi-sweet but still have enough flavor complexity to be enjoyed by all palates.
If you have a neighbor who keeps bees, or if you know the new neighbors are very into honey, then this is an excellent option. It’s also a great way to wish someone good health, especially during fall. Just be careful not to give them honey if they’re allergic! And don’t give it to vegans: unlike other animal products such as milk and butter, veganism doesn’t just mean avoiding meat. It means avoiding anything that comes from an animal by-product (eggs, milk, cheese).
Chocolate and strawberries – this is a classic combination. Here’s how you can do it:
- Make sure your strawberries are ripe and ready to eat. You can tell if they’re ripe by the amount of red showing through the green skin.
- Cover the strawberries in dark or milk chocolate – whichever you prefer.
- Dip each strawberry into the bowl of melted chocolate until it is completely covered on all sides; then, just let them cool off for about ten minutes before serving them up.
Avoid gifting houseplants – they’re expensive and require a lot of maintenance
If we’re being honest, houseplants are very expensive and require a lot of maintenance. They can also be difficult to take care of and need special lighting, fertilizer, and water which is not always available to new homeowners. It would be better to give something else instead, like jewelry or some fancy chocolates!
After moving to a new place, you will not know any of the new people, and this can be challenging. The easiest way to greet your new neighbors is to consider small and simple gifts. The easiest way to greet all people in your building is to gift them a few cookies and a greeting note. This way, you will not spend a lot of money, but your neighbors will be grateful for the nice thought.
Jam is a great housewarming gift. It’s delicious, versatile, and can be used in several different ways. You can spread jam on toast for breakfast. You can use it as an ingredient in a tasty dessert recipe. Or you can share some with your new neighbor when they come over for dinner or tea—a good way to get to know them better!
Tips for moving into a new building
Moving to a new home is a big change in itself, without meeting all the new people in the building. Overall, it’s best to plan your moving day. Experts from centennialmoving.ca advise letting movers do all the hard work. Packing, heavy lifting, and transportation can be a complication on your moving day, especially if you don’t have a plan.
If you want to move in without too much stress, consider doing the following:
- Inform your new neighbors about the move. In case you are planning a big move, make sure to post a notice a few days ahead of time. This way, your neighbors will prepare for potential noise and any disturbance during the moving day.
- Be careful not to damage the walls, especially when moving heavy furniture. Your neighbors will not be happy about any wall damage.
- Minimize the noise if possible. You should let your movers know every step of the move in advance, so you can avoid arguing in the building halls.
We hope this list has given you some ideas for what to bring your neighbors on the day they move in. As we said above, it’s important to keep your housewarming gifts simple and small so that everyone can enjoy the day without feeling stressed out or overwhelmed.
