House Warming Gifts That Will Impress

Nov 24, 2007
It is a common occurrence for people to throw a housewarming party after they have moved into a new home. They are excited about their new home and want to share in this celebration others. It is expected that the people invited bring gifts to help decorate and make a house a home. This can pose a dilemma for those attending a party because they often have difficulty knowing what to buy. In addition, a person does not want to buy the same gift as someone else. That would be like arriving the party wearing the same outfit as someone else. In this article, you will learn some tried and true gift ideas for a housewarming party.

One easy gift that people choose to bring is a bottle of wine. You are likely to run into bringing the wrong kind of wine, or there are multiple bottles of wine that are brought. The problem with wine is that once the wine is drunk it is gone. Have you considered buying wine accessories? This can include bottle openers, coasters, wine glasses, wine charms, or a book about wine. This is the type of present that not only can be used, but also are often decorative and can be displayed.

Another common gift that people will bring is picture frames. Again, you are likely to over gift this type of gift. What can make it special is to put something in the frame. Most of the time frames are empty or include some cute picture of some model. How about adding a funny picture of you and the hosts of the party to the frame. Another idea is to find some cute little pop art or local art pieces. Greeting cards can also be framed to make a nice picture. Another idea is to buy some silhouettes or have silhouettes of the hosts done. The cost of thee options are minimal , but this kind of gift will immediately be displayed rather than being packed away awaiting pictures to be developed and put into the frame. How about creating your own frame? Many art supply stores have kits and accessories for creating your own special frame. You might put a collage of fun and fond memories inside your custom made frame.

Candles are another simple yet elegant gift. Do not just buy plain white candles. Consider buying a special stylish candleholder to go with the candle. Again, once the candle has burned down it is gone. A candleholder can be used for years. Consider the multitude of colorful candles available. They come in about every size, color, and shape. You can buy mood candles or even floating candles. You can buy a large bowl that they can add water to and float their candles in to create a romantic and fun atmosphere.

Consider themed baskets of items. You can make a garden basket with gloves, shears, seeds, and stakes to label their plants. How about making a morning basket? This could contain mugs, coffee, coasters, a hot chocolate mix, honey, tea, or anything else the hosts may like.
Maybe they like a certain kind of cuisine. You can make an Italian food basket full of pasta, Sauce, a saucepan, a colander bread mix and pasta bowls. If they have a sweet tooth, how about making basket of sweets, candies and chocolates. If you can find a source of nostalgic candies, this can be a real treat. When they are finished with the items, they still have a basket to put items or even flowers in.
