Living in a new subdivision has meant a lot of construction on our street and a lot of new neighbors. I like breaking the ice by taking a small gift over and introducing myself.

Number 1: Lemonade
"Simply Excited To Have New Neighbors!" has been the number one item downloaded from Jessie K Design for the past two years. The success of this Lemonade Gift Tag is due largely to the fact that it is simple (no pun intended) to put together. Because of the popularity of this gift tag, I decided to put together more gift ideas that are clever, simple and of course won't break the bank. Please comment below which idea is your favorite.
Number 2: S'More's Kit
S'mores kit is a great gift to give during the summer months. Depending on how much you want to invest, you can make these kits as big or as small you want. The best part is that you can download this gift tag for free!
Number 3: Soda
In our home, we never buy soda except for special occasions. So whenever my family gets the chance to drink a soda we get pretty excited. You could even buy a variety of sodas to put in a gift basket. Dress it up with a bow and this gift tag.
Number 4: Flowers
It can be difficult moving to an unfamiliar place and trying to figure a new mechanic, best places to eat and more. This gift tag also comes with an info packet which allows you to help your new neighbor get their feet on the ground running by giving them all of the important information of the area.
Number 5: Popcorn
Keep it as simple as buying a box of microwavable popcorn or make your own gourmet recipe. The possibilities are endless. You could even pair the popcorn with a gift card to a local movie theater.
Number 6: Pineapple
Pineapples represent welcomeness and hospitality making it a great gift to give to a new neighbor. Dress it up by tying a bow around the pineapple.
Number 7: Donuts
Being neighborly has never been so easy as taking over a box of donuts.
Number 8: Dinner
Dinner is a traditional gift to take to neighbors. Whether it's homemade or purchased it will be appreciated. I recommend taking it over in disposable food containers or a basket that does not need to be returned.
Number 9: Pizza
We don't always have time to make a homemade meal to take to someone so take a pizza to them. This will be a hit especially if it's a family that moved in with kids. This gift tag is eight inches in diameter. You can use double sided tape or glue to attach the gift tag to the top of the box.
Number 10: Tools
Moving requires the use of tools. From hanging up picture frames to assembling beds, this gift is both useful and will be greatly appreciated. You could purchase tool kits small or large.
Number 11: Bread
I don't know about you, but if someone showed up at my house with a fresh loaf of bread I would be thrilled.
Trying to catch your new neighbors can be tricky. Finding an appropriate time to stop by is important to not inconvenience them. Avoid going too early in the morning or too late in the evening. If you are unable to catch your new neighbor at home, leave the gift on their front steps with a note introducing yourself, where you live and how to contact you. Moving is a hefty task, so don't feel put off if they don't reach out right away. At the end of the day greeting your neighbors with a friendly smile or waving hello always goes a long way.
