Top 5 Housewarming Gifts To Give When Decorations Would Not Do!

This post is provided by Katherine Smith.

Housewarmings and housewarming gifts have been around since houses were first built and people moved into them. However, if you think about it, some gifts just end up sitting in the closet or being stuffed in the attic because the person had other ideas for their home and your decorations just did not fit into their decorating plans. Luckily, there are other uncommon gifts out there for housewarming gifts that do not involve decorations. With that in mind, read on below for a few of the top housewarming gifts to give when decorations just would not do.

Give The Gift Of Food
A housewarming gift should say congratulations and welcome to your new home. Giving the gift of food in the form of housewarming gift baskets could be just what your friends are looking for. Think about it, no one has time to cook when they are moving and unpacking. The forks may be in the bedroom and the plates somehow ended up in the attic. If you know your friend’s taste, then giving them a food gift basket could be the perfect thing for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and maybe even a few snacks along the way. Everyone loves food and they can reuse the gorgeous basket later on down the line.
Coffee Table Book
While it could be considered a decoration, most people would love to have a coffee table book and they are truly coming back into style. If you know a lot about your friends, then this will be an easy one for you. Some examples of great coffee table books are cookbooks, a book filled with memories of themselves and their children, or even a travel guide to the places they want to go or have been.
Fresh Flowers Galore
There is nothing like fresh flowers to make a new home feel welcoming. A vase of fresh flowers in the middle of the dining room table will complement the food gift basket you gave them quite nicely. Choose your friend's favorite colors, add a bottle of wine to the mix, and your housewarming gift is complete!
Make An Offer To Help
Sometimes offering to help out can be the best housewarming gift there is. Offer to come over and cook one night or to help your friends unpack their possessions. Even put in an offer to take the kids for the night, so your friends can finish unpacking and have a night to themselves. You might be surprised at how quickly they take you up on your offer.
Kitchen Needs
Anyone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen will appreciate anything to do with small appliances or even spice racks. Find out what your friends like and give them something they can use for the kitchen. It is not a decoration and can be used whenever they feel foodie.
These are just a few of the best housewarming gifts for friends that are moving into a new home. Remember, decorating is in the eye of the beholder and what you think would be perfect in your friend’s home might not seem perfect to them. From offering your time to housewarming gift baskets, these things will make the top of anyone’s housewarming gift list.
