Default welcome gift?

Hello, our parents are arriving in a couple days and are very excited about beginning another chapter at the Villages......We were hoping to have a small gift delivered to welcome them...nothing big or expensive. Is there anything that everyone needs there first couple days there? Beer, chips? wine? cookies? any suggestions welcome.

A lot depends on what they bought -- new or resale and, if resale, turnkey or unfurnished. I don't know if it is doable here, but the nicest gift I got when I first moved in my townhouse was a basket of condiments -- boy, did that ever come in handy!

Other nice gifts: a basket of soaps, lotions; cheese and bread basket. I know there is at least one shop that sells fruit on a stick bouquets and, of course, the cookie bouquets. Gift cards to Publix or SweetBay or Barnes & Noble.

Edible arrangements is a nice idea! Look them up online. That or maybe a gift card they could use at restaurants? Like one of those Visa/Mastercard ones...you can get them at Publix, etc.

They used to have "Villages Money" that you could buy (at face value) from the sales dept and they would deliver it - used to send my mom money instead of flowers.

Don't know if it is still available?

I bet toilet paper would be appreciated as well! ;D I remember when we moved into a new place it was always the most critical item
