The elation that first-time homebuyers experience after closing on a home typically wears off once they realize how many things they actually need to make their house a home. Even after taking advantage of the record-low interest rates in today’s buyer’s market, you may still need assistance buying necessities for your home after you pay your closing costs. With this in mind, here are some housewarming gift ideas to help you transform a new residence into a welcoming home.
While firewood and pineapples have historically been considered a symbol of hospitality in America, times have changed since the days of heating homes via firewood. Today, a bathroom basket may be much more appreciated as the cleaning products can help a new homeowner sanitize and rid their home of bacteria build-up leftover from the previous owners. Some of the items you should incorporate in a bathroom basket include:
- Window/mirror cleaner, Surface cleaner, Trash bags, Paper towels, Towels, Tissue, Liquid/bar soap
I would love to see those items placed into an Apothecary Jar. To suit the homeowners style, choose from stemmed apothecary jars, to the more modern cylinder jars with ball top.
Or, if you are more baking inclined, bear in mind: A Homemade delicacy may sometimes say more than a thousand words. You can fill those apothecary Jars, or any cookie jar with biscotti or your claim to fame goody. Whether you are sending cupcakes, dessert for the Housewarming Party, or a pumpkin pie in item for the Holiday, why not send it over on pie plates, Ceramic or Glass Cake Stands so the new homeowner has an essential countertop accessory.
Barwares are some of the most common housewarming gifts too.
Whether you purchase shot glasses, wine glasses or bottle openers, chances are these items will be used often and greatly appreciated by a new homeowner. If you feel like wine and shot glasses are not enough, you can always include a bottle of the homeowner’s favorite drink of choice.
If the homeowner throwing the housewarming party has a pet, a doggy bed (basket) is another perfect housewarming gift idea. View the GG Griffen Pet Collection the the new neighbor and her pet will cherish forever.
By getting the new homeowner’s a proper gift, you will be a guest for a lot longer than just the housewarming party!
