Moving is an incredibly stressful time for someone. So as your friend is settling into their new place, you might want to get them a little housewarming gift. Getting your friend a present to congratulate them on their new home is a great idea, but do you start?
Here are seven fantastic housewarming gift ideas that’ll knock their socks off.
How about fresh blooms to brighten up their new space? Flowers are an affordable, thoughtful gesture. Flowers give the gift of beauty without much effort. Even a room that’s full of unpacked boxes would look better with some gorgeous seasonal color. Instead of cut flowers, you could also opt for a potted fern, succulent, or another indoor plant. Bamboo plants are considered good luck, so that might be a fun route to go!
Offer a luxe relaxation experience with a spa-inspired gift basket, especially if the home has a tub. Think bath bombs or fizzies, plush slippers, and moisturizing creams and lotions to offer a respite after a long day of unpacking.
A welcome mat is a fun gift because you can choose from so many options, from classic and sophisticated to humorous and quirky. Your friend will think of you every time they arrive home. If you’re crafty, you can also make a welcome mat to give as a gift.
A gift certificate to Seamless or a similar service is ideal for those who are living in their new home but might not have unpacked their pots and pans yet. They can order take-out from their favorite places without breaking the budget.
A box of their favorite household items can make it easy to keep the new home spick-and-span. Chances are, these items were used up at the old house or packed away for future use, so this is a thoughtful and practical option. Another good choice is a gift certificate for a local cleaning service.
Whether some is moving from New York to New Jersey or into a house or apartment, they probably don’t have all the tools they need to fix small issues when they arise. A basic toolkit is a housewarming gift they’ll be able to use for years to come.
A stylish French press, a bean grinder, and a bag of your favorite roast is a great way to ensure that your loved one will enjoy relaxing mornings in his or her new home.
Regardless of what you decide to gift, it’s important to let them know that you’ve got their back. A handwritten card or letter along with your gift can go along way. Moving can be stressful and having a friend looking after you will likely make things much easier. However, nothing makes moving easier than hiring a professional moving company to haul your possessions with responsibility and ease. Contact Q’s Moving Co. today to receive a free quote.
