Welcome Gift to a New Neighbor

Call me Old Fashioned.But, in my day there was a thing called The Welcome Wagon! Okay, now you must think I'm a dinosaur? Right? No, my mom taught me very well!


I live in a very nice complex. Saturday, a gentleman (bachelor) moved in across the hall from me. I ran into him in the hall and welcomed him, and answered some questions he had! I then came in and started baking! I made a banana bread and a batch of my chocolate chip cookies.

While they were cooking, I got out a gift bag for his Welcome package. And the pictures will show what I put in it! Just basic necessary items that a guy living alone probably had not even thought of. Most things I got at the Dollar Store. I have 3 adult sons and remember well their moving day! Now that is just being neighborly!

Thank you so very much for your comment! I am just being a mother! I brought up 4 kids years ago, and now have 11 grandchildren. I also, live across the street from a well know University. I am a mother to all. They are all in my heart!

Very nice thing you did. Our world has gotten so big in that nobody lives near their family anymore that that was a really nice thing. I have given biscuits to two different people that have moved in but then I haven't carried through with everybody. I do try to welcome them and greet them when I recognize that their new with the mailbox or new in my building. I'm sure he will appreciate that in the long run
