Moving to a new place is sometimes a bittersweet experience. On one hand you’re painfully letting go of the beautiful memories you’ve made in the place you lived for so long but on the other side, this is your chance for a refreshing, new start.
For the most part though, moving is exciting and what better way to celebrate than with a classic housewarming celebration? And if you were the one moving, wouldn’t you want some housewarming gifts? You bet!
So, as a guest in someone’s housewarming, it would be a great idea to get them a gift that will help them comfortably settle in. Here are five of the most thoughtful housewarming gift ideas you can choose for your loved one.
Scented candles are easily one of the best gift ideas for a housewarming as well as other occasions. The scents are so soothing and relaxing, which can help someone feel calmer in their new home.
This would be a good idea because moving itself comes with a lot of stress that needs to be released. Your loved one will feel better and happier once they light this candle after a hectic moving and unpacking process.
One of the things that people often look forward to after moving is enjoying those first cups of coffee or tea in a different environment, especially if you’ve wanted to move for a long time.
You could create a wholesome moment for them by gifting them mugs with a unique message. Try a simple message like ‘home sweet home’ or even a unique Bible verse that relates to their situation.
A bottle of wine
While the mood of celebration is still in the air, a great gift they might like is a bottle of wine. Get them a special bottle that they can enjoy at their own time or maybe even something you could all share.
Some great options are white wines and sparkling wines that are perfect for a celebration such as this one. You could even order one with a warm housewarming message on the label.
Gifting someone snacks you’ve bought is great but homemade snacks are even better. This is something you took your time to carefully make which gives it more of that special touch.
With this gift you don’t even have to be good at cooking because there are plenty of easy recipes all over the internet. You could also choose to go the extra mile to wrap them beautifully in a cookie jar or a pretty basket or box.
If you’re having a hard time deciding, get them a gift basket with some unique, assorted housewarming gifts. There are some with candles, snacks, cool mugs, mini houseplants and other great gifts for someone who has just moved.
These are great because they combine all the best gifts into one big gift. As you decide which one to get for them, go for a combination that would best fit their taste.
