If you’ve had the chance to do a quick hello, you can always ask if there’s a better time to stop by, though don’t be surprised if your new neighbor has a hard time suggesting one. Moving is a hefty task, and those first few weeks are often very hectic. But generally, in the evenings from 5 to 7 is usually a safe bet. There’s a general understanding in our society that these are acceptable visiting hours. The important thing is to make that a friendly stop-by and not get nervous about or hung up on whether it’s a good time. If it’s not good, your neighbor will say so. Just keep the hello short and sweet. If it looks as though a member of the family stays home during the day, you might also try dropping by about 10 or 11 in the morning. Generally, late morning through early evening will be considered acceptable visiting hours. If it turns out not to be a good time, you can always leave your gift with a little note (or just a note). Be sure to include which house on the block is yours and, if you feel comfortable, your contact information so that your new neighbor knows whom to thank for this thoughtful gesture.
