Thoughtful Housewarming Gifts Your Friends Will Actually Use

Choosing a housewarming gift is no easy feat. You want to give a recipient who is moving to a new home something that will actually be put to good use. At the same time, you also don’t want your gift to be too mundane. And while gift cards may always seem like the easy choice, you may want to rethink this option since according to Market Watch one billion dollars worth go unused each year.
Rather, find a housewarming gift that’s the perfect combination of high-quality, thoughtful, and useful. What does this look like? You do not need to spend a lot to make new homeowners owners feel welcome or to congratulate a friend on moving to their first apartment. Check out these suggestions that are as charming as they are functional.

Cloth Napkins Make An Elegant Housewarming Gift.

While cloth napkins may not seem like anything special, they make a great housewarming gift. Cloth napkins are super useful and instantly make meal times seem fancier. Just imagine how much using elegantly monogrammed cloth napkins would add to your mood when you’re living out of boxes during the first few weeks. Your recipient will love using them and will appreciate receiving such a practical and stylish gift they probably wouldn’t have thought to get for themselves. When it comes to material, go with linen which has natural antibacterial properties and it gets softer after washing. Then add a family initial or monogram to personalize your gift. Every hostess will tell you that they can never have enough napkins. Ultimately, you want to choose a beautiful napkin set that complements your recipient’s decor taste.

Say Welcome with Housewarming Gift Baskets.

Nothing says “congratulations!” like a beautiful gift basket brimming with gourmet goodies. Fruit gift baskets are a perfect choice — particularly ones featuring tropical or exotic fruits that are healthy snack packed with vitamins and antioxidants. These gifts can be received by new homeowners the same day they are ordered. They are hand delivered and arranged by a local florist.
You can even add in a few treats like chocolate, cookies, or a bottle of wine or champagne for celebrating their new home. Top your selection off with some meats and crackers which will come in handy if the new homeowners are not cooking at home yet. Gifts of wine may delight the new homeowners after a hard day of moving and unpacking. Or you could decide to give a housewarming gift basket filled with helpful items such as kitchen or shop tools. You could fill a useful container such as a bucket or toolbox with other useful things like household tools or gardening supplies. And the good news is that if your friend or family member moved away to a different town you can still send them a wonderful housewarming gift. Just shop online! At Arttowngifts.com we feature both hand-delivered fruit and gourmet baskets and practical gifts such as our BBQ gift baskets or a garden gift.

Give New Homeowners A Family Name Sign or Welcome Plaque

Family Initial Sign Est Date
Our most popular housewarming gift is a family last name sign. One style is a painted family name sign that features their last name with either a welcoming inspirational quote or the family member's names. Another custom family sign version starts with a rustic stained pallet board that features a monogram or an initial along with the family's last name.
If the new family loves their new home state then consider ordering a state silhouette sign with their family name. The latest current trend in family wall art is the architectural photo name matted and framed print where a family name is spelled out in photos of letter designs.

Make Moving Easier with A Return Address Stamp or Return Address Labels

Once moved in, new homeowners have to go through the arduous process of informing their friends and family of their new address — one responsibility on top of many.

You can help them out by giving them something to make the job easier and a lot more fun. A self-inking personalized return address stamp is a thoughtful gift that’s bound to get a lot of use. You can even include a stack of “I’ve moved” postcards to round-out the gift and make it even more practical. Custom address labels are also convenient and economical.
