New Homeowner Gift Ideas

Looking for the perfect gift idea for a new homeowner? We’ve got some unique takes on traditional gifts that might just fit the bill.

Housewarming parties and gifts are an old tradition thought to have originated in France. The term 
“housewarming” comes from the old custom of providing firewood to heat a new home. These days there are many takes on the idea of a housewarming gift – meant instead to warm the hearts of those receiving.

1. Board Games – A fun way to prepare new homeowners for hosting friends in their new home.
2. Wreath – To add curb appeal to a new home, gift the homeowners with a seasonal wreath, door mat or porch d├ęcor.
3. Something personal – Considering personalizing a household item with the homeowners name or initials – examples are a cutting board, dish towels or photo frame.
4. Theme baskets – If you like to be a little more creative in your gift assembly, consider a theme basket. Put together a grouping of like items such as cleaning supplies, pasta night dinner kit, cookie ingredients, or a movie night basket.
5. Stationary – A fun way to celebrate the new home is with stationary and a custom return address stamp – complete with the homeowners name and new address!

What are some of your favorite ways to celebrate a housewarming?
