House warming gifts are given to people that are moving into a new neighbourhood. This has been done for a long time and if you are moving into a nice neighbourhood then you will know that you will have a knock on the door from your new neighbours, and they will probably come bearing gifts for you.
The choice of what kind of house warming gift to offer a new neighbour can be daunting. You don't know them at all and therefore you won't know what they like, so some neighbours will come along with something that they can eat until they settle in. House warming gifts are a good way to let your new neighbour know that you are not a horrible person, it is also a way for you to get to know them a bit better and just see what your new neighbours are like. Let's not hide the fact that a lot of neighbourhoods in places like the USA have nosey neighbours, and what one person finds out will probably spread to the whole of the street within a matter of minutes.
But house warming gifts are a nice way to welcome a new family to the neighbourhood and they will appreciate the gesture that you have made. Receiving any gift when you move into a new home is always great, you then know that you are almost welcomed into this new neighbourhood. But only almost they still don't know you fully yet, there is a way though to make yourself fully established in the neighbourhood and that is to have a house warming party. You can send out house warming invitations and invite everyone from the neighbourhood just to make a nice icebreaker.
At your house warming party you will probably be given a lot of gifts from the neighbours as their house warming gift and at this point you will be required to keep the conversation going. You can talk about the previous owners of your new home and see what the response is like. But you have to remember that you will be the one that everyone will want to talk to, they will want to know about your family if you have a family of course. They will also want to know everything about you and what you do for a living; you can answer these questions easily and they will also probably ask you why did you move to where you are. You will have simple questions thrown at you and they won't be too taxing and you just answer them honestly. Hopefully you won't regret the thought of this house warming party and you won't want to revoke any house warming invitations.
House warming gifts do not have to be expensive or anything like that; they can just be something that will help the new family get settled in until they have unpacked everything into their new home. House warming gifts are always being handed out to new neighbours as a sign of friendship, you are in effect holding out your hand and saying shake it if we are friends. Sometimes you may be too busy to even notice that there are any new neighbours in at all. But if you see a house warming party invitation on your door mat then that's a pretty good indication that you have new neighbours. Just remember to greet them when you see them and they won't hate you and you won't start a feud with them.
