The arrival of new neighbors is always exciting, but it can sometimes leave you with questions. How do I welcome my new neighbors to the neighborhood? How do we get to know one another? One of the best things about community living is having close relationships with our neighbors. So when a new neighbor moves in next door, it is a great idea to welcome them to your community.
Here are a few ways to welcome new neighbors!
Introduce yourself as soon as you can. This can sometimes be a daunting task but once you get to know your neighbor, it will be a thing of the past! Just be friendly! If they just moved in, stop by on the first day or two and say hello. If they're busy unpacking or getting settled, leave them a note that says, "Hi! Welcome to the neighborhood!" The next time they see you around town or the community, they'll remember who you are.
Invite Them Over For Coffee Or Tea
If you have time and want to get to know your neighbors better, invite them over for coffee or tea. This is a great way to create a sense of community and make new residents feel at home.
Keep An Eye Out
Keep an eye out for them when they need help. They may need help moving furniture or boxes in, or they may need advice on the best local restaurants or activities. Questions like that always happen when people move into new homes.
Welcome Your Neighbors With a Small Gift
Consider sending a welcome package to your new neighbor. This could include a note and some baked goods, but it’s also nice to give them something they can use. A basket of spices or some cleaning supplies might be perfect.
