New homeownership is worth celebrating, and what better way to welcome a new neighbor or congratulate an old friend on their recent move than to give them a housewarming gift. But not just any gift will do – you want one that reflects their personality and style as well as one that will help them ease into life in their new space.
Here are a few tried-and-true housewarming gifts to consider for the new homeowner in your life:
For the kitchen – The heart of the home, the kitchen is where so much giving and sharing occurs. It only makes sense that a good housewarming gift is put to good use in the kitchen. For that, you can’t go wrong with a customized cheese board or engraved cutting board. Hand-carved salad tongs, a new serving bowl, or other kitchen utensils or accessories are also always welcomed regardless of how practical or fun they are.
For the bar – A bottle of wine or brandy, drink coasters, cocktail shaker, or other personalized bar gifts are fun and perfect for the homeowner who likes to entertain.
For the dining room – The dining room will always be a place of gathering, and special occasions call for special tableware. A new table runner, candle, or simply an arrangement of flowers welcome guests to gather ‘round.
For the front step – A welcome mat with a touch of humor, a custom house number plaque, name sign or door hanger greet guests and make everyone who comes to the door feel welcome and at home.
For just about anywhere – You can’t go wrong with potted plants, an arrangement of succulents, or fresh flowers. They brighten any room in the house and are suitable for any personality.
