Happy Housewarming

When a close friend has just moved into a new home, it's nice to send/give a small housewarming gift. Even if they're not having a housewarming party, a thoughtful note a small gift is a nice way to congratulate them on their milestone (especially if they've purchased their first house!). Below are some of my favorite housewarming gift picks.


From left to right:

  • Beer Tote. Carry this wooden tote full of interesting artisan beers and make a toast to your friend's new place! The tote can be reused when your friend wants to carry a few beers over to their neighbor's backyard BBQ.
  • DIY Ice Cream Sundae Basket. Fill a basket/box with cones, sprinkles, candy toppings, fudge, and caramel. Don't forget to bring the ice cream! This housewarming gift will be a big hit with ice cream lovers and families alike. 
  • Rewined Candles. Soy wax is poured into containers made from reused wine bottles and the scents mimic your favorite vintage. Try the chardonnay scent- it's yummy!
  • Plants. An awesome plant (try succulents-they last a long time with minimal maintenance) will help to make a house feel like a home. 
  • DIY Deluxe Bucket. Fill a big metal bucket with practical tools for home repair. A power strip, level, wood glue, nails, measuring tape, flashlight, magic erasers, and some 3M sticky tape will come in handy!
  • Favorite Throw. A cozy blanket will be well-loved by the new homeowners, plus it's a classic item that goes with almost any decor.
