Everyone can use a friend who is thoughtful and kind to give them something useful when they move into a new place. No one has the time to make a few casseroles to take over. Fruit baskets are out of date. Here are four modern housewarming ideas your friends will appreciate.
Getting a mail organizer and some beautiful stationary is an excellent gift idea for a new homeowner or renter. They will have a designated place to put the mail as it comes in, and while they unpack, there will be a place for items going out. Include a personalized rubber stamp with the return address, an ink pad, and a book of stamps, and your friend will feel special. Every time they pay a bill or mail a letter, they will think of you.
Welcome mat and flowers
Help your friend with a gift that keeps giving. Ensure all their guests are welcome with a doormat that says hello or a cute saying. You can also purchase a couple of potted plants or hanging baskets that will brighten up the doorway. The last thing someone is thinking about when moving is decorating the front porch. A shiny, new set of house numbers or a wreath for the front door is also a nice gesture.
Something for celebrations
Do you want to give your friends something they can enjoy after getting good news? A membership to a champagne club will provide them with a gift that keeps coming month after month. A marble wine chilling station or an automatic cork remover are other excellent ideas.
Movie night basket
A lot of people like to binge movies and television shows. Why not give your friend something to make movie night more fun? A basket with microwave popcorn, a few bottles of soda, and some boxes of gummy worms or chocolate candies will be welcome. Throw in a few classic movies, and you have a gift that will make your friends happy to stop packing for a few hours and take a break.
Blankets, cheese knives, and custom cutting boards are other excellent ideas to help your friend make their house feel like home right away. A porch sign with the family name is another personalized item people like receiving. If your friend is health conscious, then a portable blender with to-go cups can make a wonderful welcome home present. If nothing suits your fancy, then a gift card is a fantastic option.
