If you've just moved here in Northeast Kansas, then you may not be familiar with your neighbors yet. While you've greeted them with the usual introductory smile and hello or had some small talk, they don't know much about you, as much as you don't know about them.

Giving gifts to your new neighbors is a great way to introduce yourself and get to know them better. Here are five simple gift ideas that would surely help you pave paths of friendship in the community.

Your Homecooked Specialty

Food always brings people together. Let your neighbors try your homecooked specialty or baked goodies that your kids and the folks from your old neighborhood loved.

Something DIY

Put your crafting abilities into great use by making homemade gifts for your neighbors that are useful around the home, such as linen or bathroom sprays or decorative, such as crocheted candle jar holders. DIY gifts are also less expensive than items sold at a store.

A Quirky but Useful Gift

Giving your neighbor a quirky gift, such as a wine coaster set featuring witty sayings, is a sure way to start interesting conversations. They'll appreciate the thought of giving them something useful and funny at the same time.

Gift sets

If you've been around the neighborhood for six months or a little longer, chances are you've fostered a close friendship or two. Giving your new neighbor-friends a gift set is a great way to show how much you value their company. Your gift can be a garden tool set or a basket full of cooking tools, kitchen towels and mitts, and a cookbook.


Easy-to-maintain plants like succulents, are safe enough to give to new neighbors. They also contribute to the overall health of the environment of your community.
