Ideas for welcoming someone new to the neighborhood

Moving can be stressful. When someone new moves into your neighborhood or building, they would probably appreciate a warm greeting. When it’s convenient, you can introduce yourself. But if you want to take it a little further, here are some ideas to help your new neighbor feel welcome.

  • Leave a note in their mailbox with your name, phone number, and an offer to recommend local shops or services if they need them.
  • Gather local takeout menus for them.
  • List the days and times of local farmer’s markets.
  • Leave a small plant outside their door with a note of welcome.
