Whenever someone moves into our neighborhood, I try to welcome them with some goodies. My go-to goody was Rice Krispie treats, but these are only good the day you make them. If the new neighbors weren’t home the day I made them, I ended up eating them all myself. Not good :/. Plus, you never know who may have allergies or other food restrictions. I decided to rethink my welcome gift and opt for something practical yet relatively inexpensive. After searching the Internet for a while, here’s what I came up with:
I wrapped a bottle of dish soap and a sponge in a kitchen towel, tied a cute little ribbon around it, and added a note welcoming the new neighbors to the neighborhood. You could even spice it up a bit by adding a fabric flower to the ribbon. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s practical and helps your new neighbors feel welcomed (which I would have loved when we moved to a new neighborhood!).
