Housewarming Gifts

We recently went to a Housewarming party and we put together a fun bucket of goodies for the new homeowners.  We tried to choose a variety of items that are used frequently when moving into a new home or are just nice to have around.

Housewarming Gift

What we included in our bucket:
- Maglite Flashlight
- Carabiner Style Bungee Cord
- Goo Gone
- WD-40
- Assortment of Nails/Hooks
- Nail Hole Filler
- Hand Soap
- Handmade Dish Cloths
- Tape
- Quick Card on a Paint Sample

Other possible items to include for a similar "basket" could be:
- Hammer or other small tools
- Extension Cord
- Level
- Gorilla Glue
- Paint Brush
- Surface Protectors








Some other possible Housewarming gifts:

Bottle of Champagne, to celebrate their new home

Pasta Night:  Colander, Pasta, Pasta Sauce and a Bottle of Wine

Oven Mitt filled with Kitchen Tools (wooden spoons, whisk, ice cream scoop, etc.)

Plant for Inside or Outside

Custom Return Address Stamp or Labels

Welcome Matt

A favorite item from a local store or Farmer's Market

You can never go wrong with a bottle of wine or flowers


Happy Champagne Thursday!

Cheers!

  2. I love this idea! The BEST graduation gift I received was a tool kit from my aunt, and I didn't appreciate it until I moved into the dorms, we did the same thing for Jeff's little sister and she said the same thing! I love the goo gone, that stuff is so helpful! We just went to a housewarming party and brought a croquet set, but I really like your idea!
