Taking the Fear Out Of Giving Housewarming Gifts

Aug 17, 2007
Does giving housewarming gifts strike fear in you? Fear that the receiver will think that your gift is boring or unappealing or simply will not like it? There is hope for you! Think out of the box, out of the registry, out of the regular stores. Choose a gift that "speaks" to the receiver.

How do you do this? By choosing a gift that expresses the personality of the recipient, you are giving them something that will "speak" to them and that they will forever love. Need some housewarming gift ideas?

Make getting and sending mail fun! Hand painted mailboxes are excellent housewarming gifts because a mailbox is the first thing that people see when they pass by or pull into your driveway.

Choosing a mailbox that expresses the interests of the people who live there is a wonderful way for neighbors, friends, and family to learn more about them, as well as to add a touch of fun and whimsy to an otherwise boring mailbox.

You can find mailboxes that will delight anyone from the beach lover to the golf lover to a gardener. This would be an excellent housewarming gift that the recipient will delight in receiving.

"Welcome" them to their new home. Help the new homeowners to "welcome" their friends and family by giving them a welcome sign as a housewarming gift.

It is possible to find a welcome sign made from just about any kind of material from metal to wood to stone or slate. These signs offer a wonderful and unique way to invite people into their home.

You will be able to find one that fits their decorating style or the style of their home or you could choose one that helps them to express their personality. Welcome signs are great house warming gifts that will keep giving joy year after year. Personalize one for that "special" lasting touch.

It may be "time" for a new clock. Clocks are one house warming gift that everyone needs. With the dependence upon clocks due to the high paced lives that people lead, clocks are a necessity in any home whether established buying new. Clocks are a great decorating accent to help reinforce a distinctive style or to add a touch of whimsy to any room.

They can also serve as a piece of wall art that will help spark conversation when friends and family visit. Choose a unique clock that "speaks" of the person that you are giving it to. They will always remember the "time" you gave them a wonderful housewarming gift.

It is far more special to give a gift that is handmade than a mass-produced gift that can be found at any corner store. It's a gift that will be used and appreciated for years and years. So, you see...there's no fear in that, now is there?
