We just moved a few months ago too and sort of let THEM set the tone. Lol. They brough over a plate of fudge/cookies, so it became a “we’ll respond in kind.” That helped set the precedent for next year too. Where we used to live we definitely didn’t have that relationship, but it was apartments and mostly we were young. Our neighbors now are quite old and sweet. 🙂

I never give my neighbors anything for christmas. We don’t really know them that well. We exchange “hi” when we see each other but that’s about it.

I think it’s a nice gesture! I don’t do it, but my family always did.

I don’t give or get anything from my neighbours for Christmas (I live in an apartment building though, don’t know if that makes a difference).

Nope not giving neighbors anything. Barely know them and have been our house for almost 3 years now.

We live in an apartment building now so we don’t do anything. But when we have a house in a neighborhood and actually know our neighbors, I’d definitely take over something!

I make a point of getting to know who my neighbours are when I move in. That doesn’t mean I want to socialize with them, but I do think i’;s a good idea to know them in case of emergency, to receive packages etc.
I am only giving one neighbour a gift. We live in a condo. Our newspapers are all left in a pile in the lobby. My next door neighbour gets up before I do every day and brings my papers back when she goes to get her own. I love her for that!

I live in a condo and in the past 5 years no one has given me anything then a week ago there was a gift bag on my door… Normally I wouldn’t give anything to neighbors however I feel like I have to leave a gift back so I got a mini gingerbread house and a card… gotta get that over there tonight or tomorrow. lol

I would I think it will help break the ice, you can take them over say hi and introduce yourself. you dont have to do it every year but because you are new to the area it will help you get to know them incase you ever need them to get the mail or a package or something for you. you can us this as a way to feel them out. but I wouldnt go out of your way itf you arenot already baking cookies dont bother… but where I ived growing up my family home we give one neighbor a gift every year we have know her since before I was born when my parntes moved in. then in Fiance and my old apartemnt the lady across the hall we used to get her a little gift. but now in our rental house we dont bwecause we dont know anyone. we just got new neighbors a few months ago and there not friendly the other house is a bunch of college boys… so

i was actually thinking about popping christmas cards into my neighbours letter boxes to be friendly, but thought best not to. i dont want to get too friendly with them were they’d want to pop in and such.. i like my privacy and keep to myself, ive been here for almost a year and still havent even seen my neighbours!

You certainly don’t have to. But if you want to get to know your neighbors, it would be a great way to break the ice.

If you want that type of relationship with your neighbors, somebody has to get the ball rolling! Since they did not welcome you to the neighborhood with food, it may as well be you who gets things started. You certainly don’t have to do it, but if you are so inclined, I’m sure it would be a pleasant surprise for your neighbors.
