Recently, I’ve seen a rise in my friends purchasing new houses! Sometimes, they’re simply moving to a new house which is better suited to their family. Some are making the move to a different job in a city that’s not their own. Others are making use of remote work opportunities to move to a smaller area and be able to have more space to rear their children. I’m fortunate because this move gives me an opportunity to meet my friends at housewarming celebrations!
It is believed that housewarming celebrations were first held in medieval France in the days of new homeowners who were invited to a meal to express their gratitude to their family and friends for helping them to build their home. Nothing has changed, but nowadays, we often thank our families and friends for their help in moving us!
A lot of times, newly-arrived homeowner (especially new homeowners) organize a party to invite their family and friends to visit their new home and make it feel more like home. As with all parties typically, we adhere to the rules of etiquette and we should not arrive with empty hands, so we should bring something to help them mark the new chapter of their lives. We have compiled our best housewarming present suggestions:
Kitchen Gadgets, Household Items and Kitchen Gadgets
If your friends recently bought their first house typically, the most appropriate gift is one that can be used. Ideas for new home gifts can include anything as expensive like a pasta or bread maker, or that is as basic as an electric kettle, or even new napkins and tea towels that could inspire the design of their new home! When I purchased and renovated the house I lived in I was delighted by receiving unique wood salad “claws” and barware as well as a stunning piece of pottery that was handmade among the gifts my guests gave me. Different types of wine glasses could be another amazing idea.
A lot of people who are new to the area are moving out of their parents’ house or even a tiny city apartment and do not have all the tools and household items they could require. The first thing they buy is likely to be basic items such as a toaster. It is possible to impress them by buying the small luxury items like A coffee grinder to make a fresh hot brew or a waffle maker or even smart speakers!
A Gift Card for the Home and Garden Store Gift Card
As a continuation of the trend of giving new home decor, this present can also be used by those who might be contemplating revamps or redesigning. My sister was moving into her home and had to redo one bedroom that was previously decorated with a stark orange color and large yellow dots. It took just a couple coats of paint before changing it back to a more relaxing lavender. Gift cards to the paint shop could have been put to great use!
Also, when my mom moved out after her kids had left for an area with less space and more space and a yard, my brother purchased her an account at the local garden and home center so she could purchase an additional garden shed to have some extra storage outside. Although gift cards may seem more uninspiring than these other homewarming ideas, I can guarantee they are a great gift for people who appreciate practicality, they’re valued!
Outdoor Furnishings , Equipment or Equipment
First home usually means your first yard, and with it, an assortment of equipment, tools and furniture that could be needed – and will be valued.
Maybe those who are new home owners eager to establishing their own vegetable or flower garden? Create a personalized gift bucket or the wheelbarrow that includes gardening gloves, weeding and digging tools, and maybe even packages of seeds or even starter plants.
If they’re looking forward to having your own barbecue, you could help them out by providing an array of amazing equipment. BBQ tools, grilling planks, a set of BBQ sauces and dry rubs. The idea is clear!
A few comfy lawn chairs could be very popular!
A Fine Bottle
The housewarming present is the best idea to give couples a gift for their housewarming. It is a popular tradition to “christen” the boat by opening a bottle of champagne, but honestly I would rather have a glass of wine to share with my partner while we spend a peaceful night in and enjoy the space we live in! Some people prefer an old Scotch or the Craft Beer Mixed Pack, or perhaps their most popular cocktail. If your plan is to celebrate with a bottle of champagne. Don’t forget to buy champagne glasses to brighten it up.
The benefit of having a drink at an event to celebrate a housewarming is the fact that hosts could or choose to put the bottle aside to enjoy in a private space later on – or could serve it at the celebration! In either case, you’ll know that this gift will be utilized and appreciated.
Let’s say that your most beloved family members have recently moved away from their families and friends which makes planning a traditional homewarming party a big task. It’s the perfect occasion to plan an online housewarming party! It shouldn’t seem like a big surprise that we’d recommend creating video as a collective videothat will serve as an ideal keepsake of the celebration.
A video of family members sending housewarming wishes to the new homeowners could be among the most meaningful gifts for a housewarming as it reminds the new homeowners that whether they live in the same city or across the world their family and friends are always there to support them.
Your housewarming videos could include tutorials, tips and tricks or just messages of congratulations and support!
If the owners have just moved into the area, why not make local! You could look around the neighborhood around the new home and purchase their a hamper of goodies from their local baker or a bottle of wine or beer from local wineries or breweries. Maybe you could give them an inexpensive gift card and encourage them to head out to the popular local spots. This is a fantastic method to encourage them to explore their new neighborhood and get to know their neighbors! You can always support locals by buying any types of coffee mugs from them, we’re sure they are beautiful.
If you’re lucky enough to stop into an artisanal marketplace or boutique, be sure to look for unusual housewarming gifts like a jar of local honey! Honey is not just sweet and delicious with antibacterial properties that have been around for a long time Some say that the honey produced by bees in the area can help you fight off local allergens as well!
Making a home feel as if it’s home is all about bringing your own design to the space! A thoughtful housewarming present can assist the new homeowner achieve this target.
You can also get a personalized name plaque designed to be placed on top of their mailbox or next to your front entryway! It’s hard to find a way to say ‘I’m here’ like placing your name on it! Also to a display of annew number display on the outside of their house , designed in the an aesthetic that is appropriate for them is an excellent method create a feeling in their own home.
This list is hoped to be useful. Don’t forget to remember, when you are unsure, purchase them plants! We moved into a new house as a teenager and my family was given five house plants for the housewarming celebration! The majority of them did well!
