Know someone that just moved into a new place? Remember to never show up to your friends and families new digs empty handed! No matter what budget you are working with here are some of Republic Moving and Storage’s great housewarming gifts or day-of-the-move perks that will be sure to be hit.
Tasty Treats: A simple bottle of wine, spirits or homemade desserts are all great gifts for a housewarming party or even the day of the move…best part is that you can participate in the enjoyment! If bringing food or drink the day of the move make sure to take in account that utensils and tableware may not be easily accessible. Want to add even more special touches to your special treats? Wine openers, BBQ tools or even serving platters are great additions to any home culinary gift.
Plants & Flowers: A simple plant or a bouquet of flowers are always well received by hostesses and are great additions to any new home. Picking smaller potted plants such as jade or decorative pots with herbs will ensure that the recipient will be able to find the perfect place for the addition. If you are looking for a more personalized touch Feng Shui tradition states that three stalks of bamboo with a red ribbon are said to bring good luck to any home…it’s a win-win!
Personalized Items: What makes a home a home are all the extra touches so why not give a personalized gift that speaks from the heart? Gifts such as personalized doormats, coffee mugs, candles and monogrammed towels, cutting boards or even a simple key holder are more economical than you think and will be used and appreciated for years to come.
For the Person that Has it All: If you are having a hard time thinking of that perfect gift what recently moved person wouldn’t love a project gift card? Gift cards to places such as Home Depot, Lowes and Target are great ways for the recipients to get what they want and when they want it. If giving a gift card is not personal enough for your taste consider making your own Do-It-Yourself Home Bucket for potential home projects.
