The house-warming party is not new. And it’s even one of the most enduring customs to this day. A new move is indeed a reasonable reason to invite your loved ones and have a party. It is the ideal time to make the move official and to make it a joyful event. And while the new owner organizes the reception, the guests, for their part, will have to concentrate on the little present they are going to give the master of the house. And yes, each guest should bring a housewarming gift. And if you want to give yours a little something special, here are a few ideas that might help.
A self-made gift
Usually, household appliances, kitchen utensils or wall watches fill the table for gifts at a housewarming party. Of course, these are all useful things for new occupants; but what do you say to an original housewarming gift? The best way to do this is to make it yourself. Of course, this idea is ideal for people who love and know how to tinker. You can, for example, make a small wooden wall keyring to stick near the door. Alternatively, a home-made photo frame with a beautiful picture of your host or simply one of your own photographic works would also be perfect.
What about personalised gifts?
You and DIY make two? No problem! It’s always possible to find an original housewarming gift in another way, like with personalised gifts. And yes, you don’t have to create or design new things. Just play the personalization card and boom… your gift is one of a kind. In fact, there is a very wide choice to this effect, to mention only a doormat with the name of the beneficiary printed on it, trays and coasters with personalised engravings, or cups with small words of welcome. But whatever you choose, still make sure that your gift matches the taste of your host.
Offer a symbolic gift
For a real original housewarming gift, it is also feasible to offer something symbolic. Of course, it is imperative that the symbol has a positive expression and not the opposite. If you don’t know one, know that sweets reflect good humour and joy. Also, you can offer salt to wish prosperity to the new owner or wine to mask the festive spirit. In short, it’s up to you to express yourself!
