For the most part, your neighbors are going to be people that you want to get along with at least in passing. It is important to know them at least on a basic level. Knowing what your neighbors look like can definitely help with things like suspicious activity. It also helps if you need a favor, and can go a long way in making your experience at home all that much smoother. It can take a little while to get used to someone new moving in, but it is always better to try and be friendly with them than to ignore them.
While doing something like baking them a pie may seem traditional, there are certainly other things you can do that are safer for everyone involved. Bringing over some simple toiletries such as toilet paper or even some take out menus for your favorite places can go a long way without having to worry about someone else’s dietary restrictions.
