Ideas for Housewarming Gifts
The people who move in to a new house often have dreams about decorating their dream home with beautiful decorative objects. So why don’t you help them to realize their dream. Give them a showpiece to decorate a wall or corner of the room.
There are great mantle pieces which can adorn their fireplace. Wall hangings, properly framed pictures and ornamental clocks can be great gifts. Statues or decorative pieces work great on the corners, landings of staircases and the porch. Another great gift idea can be decorative lamps and lampshades.
A new house needs many objects of daily use, in the kitchen, garden or in the home in general. So you can always gift cookware like pots, sets of ladles, beautifully crafted tea-pots, bottle openers, etc. Dinnerware is a very common gift item. The good thing about this item is that a household can always do with more than one set of dinnerware. Wineglass sets make great gifts too. Sets of cups and saucers, coffee mugs, beer mugs, etc. can easily replace wine glasses as gifts.
If your friend or relative moves to a new house with a garden, then you can always gift him/her gardening tools or even seeds of flowers and vegetables or a plant that they can replant in their garden.
This is a very flexible gift. A new household often needs new furniture, may be a new oven for the kitchen, a new freezer or other items. The gift vouchers from various stores and companies that are available these days can help in reducing the burden of acquiring these new items.
Moreover, it also gives the flexibility to the house owners to choose the object of their choice rather than having your choice thrust upon them.
Wine and Food Hampers
These are gifts that do not interfere with the decorating ideas of the house owners. In fact they bring in the element of celebration. So you can get a bottle of bubbly and then celebrate together. A hamper or basket full of food can also contribute to the celebration. It can be anything from a hamper of cookies or muffins to a basket of fruits. You can even bring in an item for a dinner and share it with all the members.
When searching for gifts for housewarming, think what you should have liked to get as housewarming gift when moving in to a new house. That will help you a lot in deciding upon a gift that is suitable for the occasion of housewarming of a friend or relative.
