Most of us find it a bit uncomfortable to introduce our self to someone we haven’t met before, or hardly know. It’s….odd, right?
Have you moved and had someone stop by and make you glad you bought in the area? It makes a huge difference in your attitude!
After 25 years in our home, handsome hubby Stan and I moved to a new-to-us home.
It’s an interesting experience at our age, without young kids to naturally help us meet people, reach out and find new friends.
Those who have invited us into their home, been friendly, dropped by with a treat and a welcome smile, have done more than they probably can imagine.
We feel it’s important to build a new reservoir of friends, as well as keeping a pool of friends that we already know.
As I’ve thought about WHY helping new move-in’s in our neighborhood feel welcome would be important, here are a few reasons:
- people can help each other in countless ways if they know each other
One of the best ways to accomplish this is to take a small gift or treat and say ‘HELLO’.
After my experience of moving, a little ‘HI’, or a small treat, is truly one of the kindest things we can do.
To help make it easier, less expensive and more creative, I’ve created for you EIGHT FREE WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD TAGS that are editable/fill-in so you can personalize them! Download them HERE or free
I’ve put together some ideas of how to use these tags, along with a few links of where to find a few of the items to check out if you’d like.
But, most importantly, get out and meet those new neighbors by just saying WELCOME so they can enjoy your friendship!
It’s important to learn who lives near you, practice meeting new people and you’ll be amazed at what you will become as a result! A great blessing to many!!!
Here I used dish cloths and dish soap. Keeping some good quality dish cloths on hand like THESE to give a couple with the tag and soap would be a great welcome gift.
Making quick bread in disposable pans and attaching with a bright ribbon would make anyone feel welcome. I made my BEST Poppy Seed Bread for this and it’s always a favorite.
This little package is not only fancy, but it’s very useful. Wrapped individually are: 3 pack of toilet paper on the bottom, and on the top are paper towels and a box of tissue. Not expensive, yet the new-move-in would feel very special as they ‘nest’ with this tag and it’s supplies.
Who doesn’t like chocolate right! A brownie mix, hot pad, oven mitt and spatula round out this welcome gift and tag. The possibilities are endless with a kitchen tag: a whisk, any quick mix, measuring cups, kitchen scissors—the skies the limit with this tag.
A cleaner and a really good microfiber towel like THIS or kitchen towels with this tag. Give a one or two of the towels with some cleaner and it would definitely be welcomed by anyone when moving in, since there is always cleaning to be done.
Any sweet will compliment this tag. Simply attach a bag of candy, or a jar, or wrap with a ribbon if you’d like and head out to meet the new neighbors.
This tag is EASY to use with a bag of pre-popped popcorn of any kind, or a box of ready-to-pop. It doesn’t matter, because you are making the newbies know you are so glad they moved it.
Pick up a house plant, vegetable or herb plant and this tag is ready to go. If the container isn’t quite what you want to show off, trim a craft sack of any color to use as a cover. HERE is a twine collection that should cover about any need.
Make sure to download your FREE Welcome To the Neighborhood Tags that are editable/fill-in to make it quick and relaxed so you get out to welcome your new friends.
