The changing of seasons often signals an opportunity for fresh starts. And for some people you know, that means buying, selling and moving into a new house. While the act of moving itself can be stressful and chaotic, the joy of turning a blank canvas into a home is worthy of celebration. So whether you’ve been invited to a friend’s open house, you’re a real estate professional at closing, or you’re introducing yourself to the new neighbors, a housewarming gift is a thoughtful gesture to wish them well in their new abode.
Choosing the right gift can seem tricky because you don’t want to add more clutter to their cardboard box filled lives and you may not know their exact design style. Fear not, we’ve got you covered. As someone who has moved multiple times across town, across country and up and down both coasts, I’ve put together some unique ideas for housewarming gifts that will be useful, meaningful and won’t break the bank.
And if you’re the DIY type, you can always design your own gift box with our online gift box builder.
