Moving into a new home is exciting and stressful. There’s so much to do, plan, and organize that the new homeowner may feel a bit overwhelmed by it all. Fortunately, there are a number of thoughtful housewarming gifts to get them so they feel more at ease and comfortable.
Personalized Door Mat
Help them set the perfect tone right from the start! A personalized door mat with their last name or one that offers a fun, inviting quote that suits their personality is a great way to welcome them (and guests) to their new abode.
Visa Gift Cards
The beauty of Visa gift cards as a housewarming gift is that it is super convenient and your friend can use it just about anywhere on nearly anything they desire. It can be personalized with a picture of their new home, the two of you or anything else! They can shop at thousands of retailers around the globe to find exactly what they want during their hectic time of transition.
Nothing quite makes a house a home like a rocking chair. It can be placed on the front porch, in the living room or bedroom (especially a nursery!). They’ll enjoy sitting comfortably and rocking peacefully during their morning coffee, while they read a book or simply to watch birds and wildlife in the backyard.
Custom Return Address Stamp
Make it official with a customized return address stamp they can use on their correspondences. Made with a wooden handle, choose from bold and script fonts. It’s self-inking so they won’t have to worry about inky messes even after 10,000 or so stamp impressions. Available on Etsy, also choose from a number of ink colors like green, purple, black, blue and more!
Set of Wine Glasses
If there’s one thing that every household can always use, it’s another set of wine glasses. They break so easily that homeowners often find themselves with mismatched sets. Start their home-owning journey off right with a complete set of gorgeous wine glasses including oversized, standard, dessert, flute, white wine, and aroma collector.
First Home Ornament
Charmingly shaped as a wooden key, the First Home Ornament can be used to hang on a Christmas tree or anywhere else in or around the house during any season. It depicts a home with a heart as the window, along with the couple’s name and whatever personalization you choose to include.
New home coasters will give them a place to put their glass, keep their coffee and end tables free of pesky rings and turn their décor up a notch! Personalized slate coasters bring a warm and friendly look to any patio or living room, with light grey text that reads: home is where the story begins. And, you can personalize them with first names, their address and established date.
Wall Scrabble Game Board
Everyone loves a little friendly competition, and with this giant sized Scrabble game, your friends can play and create love notes all at once. It comes with the board, 100 magnetic wooden letters, a pouch for the letters and two pieces of chalk. Unusual and unique, they can make it a permanent piece of décor by writing: Welcome to the (Smith) House or play a continuous game.
Even though their sparkling personalities may be enough, a welcome sign placed on the front door enhances the inviting nature of their new home! Available on Etsy, this “Welcome” sign is a handmade, personalized vertical sign that reads WELCOME with their last name and established date on top. Underneath “Welcome” it reads: to our home. Choose from black, white, walnut, cherry or maple to best coordinate with their outdoor décor.
New Home Gift Box
You could search, but you wouldn’t find a more charming home gift box. There is so much offered in this box, the new home owner will be overwhelmed with gratitude and will start setting the items out right away. They’ll get a 2 ½” live succulent plant in a white ceramic pot with a bamboo tray, a macramé keychain (which would easily be hung as decoration in the kitchen), a vanilla soy candle in a gold tin, a bar of scented organic soap (choose from orange blossom, lavender or shea oatmeal honey), and your choice of a gold wine opener or white sage bundle. You can also leave them a personal message which will be typed on a card.
Moving into a new home is an event worth celebrating. Choose a gift they can use and one that will bring a smile to their face even amidst all of the unpacking and general happy chaos!
