It’s a big deal when your friends or family move into a new home. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s unlikely that you will be able to celebrate with a traditional housewarming party. However, you can still send along your congratulations with a thoughtful gift for the new homeowners.
Social distancing makes getting together to celebrate the occasions in our lives pretty tricky. Most people are delaying get-togethers until times are a bit safer. You can still show your love via video conferencing and have a gift delivered directly to the new home without having to worry about any pandemic restrictions.
Whether you choose a set of wine glasses or a custom made address sign, your friends and family will appreciate your thoughtful gesture. Your gift should be the perfect combination of practicality, uniqueness with a personal touch. Let’s take a look at a few charming housewarming gift ideas that are the perfect way to pass on your congratulations to the new homeowners.
A handcrafted and personalized address sign for the new home is a great way to make a statement. Any style or color can be customized to match the home and the new address can be included to help personalize the home for the owners.
There is nothing more lovely than having fresh flowers in the house all the time. If you are able to go to an actual housewarming party, you could even bring flowers as a gift. Why not give the gift of year-round flowers with a membership that delivers a new arrangement each month? Truly a gift of beauty that keeps on giving.
For your more spiritual friends that are moving into a new home, they may appreciate a gift set of smudge sticks. These traditional sachets are made of woven herbs, grasses, and barks and are meant to help cleanse the spirit of the home and bring peace to the new owners. They also smell great!
Customized Welcome Mat
We all love to be properly welcomed into a home. A personalized welcome mat can create the perfect addition to a front porch. Pick something the new homeowners love and that will bring a smile to everyone’s face before they walk in the door.
If the new house isn’t exactly new, gift cards to home improvement centers like Home Depot or Lowe’s could be a thoughtful and handy housewarming gift. Help the new owners get some of their renovation projects done right off the bat.
Handcrafted Game Set
If your friends love games, a handcrafted chess/checker set and board is a great housewarming gift. As an interesting decor piece and a practical game center, every house should have a board.
Homeowners find that their kitchen quickly becomes the heart of their home. A polished wood or marble cutting board is the perfect gift for any novice chef.
Don’t forget about outdoor decor when thinking about a housewarming gift. A cheeky birdhouse or feeder can be the perfect backyard item that the homeowners will love in every season.
A home should be cozy. You can’t go wrong with a plush cashmere throw to help your friends get settled in. If you aren’t sure about the color, stick with neutrals like grays and beiges that will fit any decor.
Luxury Room Sprays
A set of designer room sprays can really bring a home together. Choose from a number of combinations for a gift set that will help the new homeowners to create a custom aroma for their home.
The world has changed in many ways during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you want to send your love and congratulations to family or friends that have just moved into a new home, try some of these great housewarming gift ideas that will be a hit.
