Housewarming Gift Baskets to Celebrate a New Home
Housewarming gift baskets are a traditional way to present new residents of a new house, apartment, condo, dorm room or other accommodations with a nourishing welcome to their new place of living.
Stuffed with sweet and savory treats, they're always received with a smile.
Whether you're a real estate agent looking for closing present ideas for clients, or simply a coworker, friend or family member wanting to wish someone happiness in their new residence, you'll find just the right gift basket to give to show good wishes and give a warm welcome.
These great housewarming gift baskets were carefully selected to be suitable for a wide range of recipients, from women to men, from young couples to older couples.
Your Basket Should Contain 3 Things...
Moving into a new home is a hectic time, even when people take a break to settle down and throw a housewarming party. There are a lot of adjustments to make.
Whether you buy or make a housewarming gift basket, it should contain at least one of these three things:
- Nourshing food (or just tasty energy food)
- Pampering relaxation or stress relief care items
- Something symbolic of a traditional welcome into the new home (sugar, salt, bread, wine, housewarming poem, home-related saying, etc.)
