For Chris, choosing gifts is like writing a story: By matching the character to the gift, you learn more about people and what they value.

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:

  1. Nourshing food (or just tasty energy food)
  2. Pampering relaxation or stress relief care items
  3. Something symbolic of a traditional welcome into the new home (sugar, salt, bread, wine, housewarming poem, home-related saying, etc.)

Perfect Housewarming Gift Baskets

The housewarming gift basket ideas shown here include baskets, hampers and boxes with individually chosen selections of gifts and treats perfect for women, men, couples and kids moving into a new home.
