How can you welcome new neighbors to your neighborhood? Before you knock on their door and introduce yourself, be sure to fill a housewarming gift basket full of goodies. To help your neighbor feel at home, place home baked breads, muffins, and/or cookies into the basket, along with flavored coffees or herbal teas. Gift certificates to the local dry cleaners, sandwich shop, and health club are welcome additions to any housewarming gift basket. If your new friends have kids, why not throw in a few certificates to places like the local skating rink or bowling alley, hamburger joint or ice cream shop, too? Finally, be sure you give them a list of important phone numbers that they might need, such as the local movie rental place, the library, a good doctor's office, pharmacy, and of course your own phone number.
