Moving to a new home is a special time when we look forward to new adventures and memories with family and friends. It’s a great time to wish family members, old friends, and new neighbors the best of luck in their new surroundings.
A housewarming gift is the perfect way to welcome someone to their new home. Whether you choose a personal gift, utilitarian gift, or fun novelty gift, the person receiving it will be appreciative of your thoughtfulness and generosity. Take a look at some unique housewarming gifts that will make a big, welcoming statement.
Personalized gifts are always special because they have sentimental value for the receiver. If you like the idea of giving a personalized gift, there are hundreds of gifts to choose from in various prices. You can personalize so many items that make great housewarming gifts such as welcome door mats, serving trays and platters, coffee mugs and glassware, linens and towels, decorative accessories like picture frames and candles, and even gifts for family pets like dog gift baskets.
Utilitarian gifts are great because they are useful for everyday needs. They’re especially helpful for young family members or neighbors that are newly married and haven’t acquired household essentials. You have a lot of choices that range from great kitchen essentials to necessary cleaning tools. For unique kitchen items, consider a subscription for gourmet coffee, an electric tea kettle, a window herb planter, or a variety of cooking spices. For cleaning, consider a box of organic cleaning products or a Roomba self-cleaning vacuum.
If you have a new neighbor, a novelty gift provides a unique way to say “welcome to the neighborhood.” You don’t have to spend a lot of money with a fun novelty gift. If you like to cook, bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies or blueberry muffins and create a beautiful gift basket. You can give an outdoor wind chime or packets of flower seeds or bulbs for the back yard. If your neighbor has dogs, dog gift baskets are sure to put a big smile on your neighbor’s face.
