With what looks to be the worst of the housing rut behind us and numerous reports declaring sellers’ markets in cities nationwide, it appears the housing market is officially rebounding. It’s likely you have plenty of friends and family that are scooping up new homes, meaning plenty of housewarming parties are in your future.
Congratulate your loved ones on their new home-sweet-home with unique gifts that show you care. Here are five spectacular housewarming gift ideas:
Why send a bouquet that will last a few days when you can send a beautiful silk flower arrangement or plant that will add a splash of color to any room all year long? Modern faux flowers and plants are designed and constructed so well you can hardly tell the difference between them and live plants.
If you want a gift that embraces fashion and function, look no further than a luxurious throw. Whether it’s used as an accent piece on a favorite chair or provides warmth on cool evenings, it will remind your loved ones of you each time they touch its soft fibers.
Garden and patio accessories provide a touch of class to any outdoor space. Help the new homeowners settle in by gifting them with a piece of outdoor décor. From graceful garden bells and wind chimes to beautiful bird feeders and quaint gnomes, outdoor accessories can be tons of fun.
4. Focus on the kids
Sometimes moving is difficult for children. Help little ones adjust to their new home by making your housewarming gift kid-friendly. Plush blankets, framed artwork, decorative mirrors, small toys, treats and books all help children get excited about their new home and make them feel special.
When in doubt, you can never go wrong with a custom-made gift basket. Remember, the package is just as important as what you put in it! Whether a beautiful wicker basket or wrought iron fruit basket, what holds the contents can be used over and over again by the new homeowners.
