Moving into a new home is an exciting event for most people. If you would like to give a housewarming gift that is unique and usable, here are some possibilities.
HOME DECORATING GIFT CERTIFICATE
A housewarming gift of a certificate to a decorating related store is a good choice. New homeowners enjoy creating their own special décor look and will love having credit available at online sites or local stores. Gift certificates to paint and wallpaper stores, bath and bedroom linens stores, kitchen and cooking stores, art print stores, or import stores are possibilities.
HOME REPAIR / MAINTENANCE GIFT CERTIFICATE
Another option for a housewarming gift is certificates to Internet sites or local stores selling building materials, hardware, plumbing supplies, or lighting fixtures. New homeowners will appreciate having credit at these sites for home repair, maintenance, and decorating.
ART AND CRAFTS GIFT CERTIFICATE
If the new homeowners enjoy arts and crafts, a certificate to a craft supply website or store is an excellent choice. Other possibilities are certificates to fabric stores for needleworkers, or art supply stores and picture framing sites for artists. New homeowners who already enjoy crafts will love having the credit available to help with decorative projects they envision completing.
HOME DECORATING / MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR BOOKS
A great housewarming gift is a home decorating or repair book geared to the new owners’ type of home. Books are available on decorating traditional stick-built houses, cottages, manufactured homes, condominiums, apartments, houseboats, and other types of homes. General home repair and maintenance books are also welcome and very useful to new homeowners.
INDOOR HOME DÉCOR
Housewarming gifts of interior decorating accessories are appreciated by new homeowners. Choose items that are highly usable and fit in with most decorating schemes. Possibilities include bar and liquid bath soaps, crystals and oils, bath towel sets and rugs, dishtowels and potholders, and small area throw rugs.
OUTDOOR HOME DÉCOR
Accessories for decorating a new home’s exterior make welcome housewarming gifts. Choose attractive and practical items such as door mat sets, wind chimes, thermometers and barometers, and solar walkway lights.
For a fun and surprising housewarming gift, choose mood-setting items for the new home. Ideas include music tapes featuring rain forest, seashore or other soothing backgrounds, large candleholder and candle sets, or baskets of enticing wine, bread, and cheeses. Help the new owners relax and enjoy their new abode with a little help from a unique and carefully chosen housewarming gift!
