It’s that time of year when we get the itch to move (well, not us. We’re not moving anytime soon. But lots of other people get that itch.)
Spring is always a busy real estate season with people selling and buying houses, moving into new apartments or rentals, trading up or down and starting fresh. If you have any friends or family members moving into a new house, perhaps you’d like to bring a little housewarming gift with you when you visit for the first time.
A reader asked if I had ever done a post about housewarming gift ideas and since I had not, I thought it was a great idea! You could always go with a bottle of wine or a potted plant or cut flowers, but if you’d like something a little more unique, check out my top picks.
1 LEATHER TASSEL KEYCHAIN from Mark & Graham. This one comes in a bunch of pretty colors and can be monogramed for free.
2 COASTERS from Rifle Paper Co. These are so cute. They are thick paper in the signature Rifle Paper floral style we all love.
3 JUICE GLASSES from Hearth + Hand for Target. Sweet little glasses with a cute x pattern. They come in green or clear.
5 KITCHEN TOWEL from Anthropologie. A hardworking tea towel in a happy pattern is always a welcomed gift.
6 WOOD NESTING HOUSES from Hearth + Hand for Target. What says housewarming better than a wooden house? These would be very cute on a shelf or dining table centerpiece.
7 GLASSYBABY CANDLE HOLDER from Glassybaby + TEALIGHTS from CB2. Do you know about Glassybabies? They were started here in Seattle and are very pretty handblown glass candle holders that make the prettiest light. Each has a special name and this teal color is called – appropriately – Home Sweet Home.
8 BRASS DINNER BELL from Amazon. Call the kids down for dinner with just a pull of the braided cord. We have one of these in our kitchen and get comments about it all the time.
9 HELLO GOODBYE DOORMAT from Target. How fun to bring a new doormat to your friend’s new home! I put this one at our back door and smile every time I see it.
10 MARBLE DOORSTOP from CB2. If you’re looking for a unique gift that is super practical, look no further than this doorstop. We have it in our house and use it everyday.
11 BAYLEAF + EUCALYPTUS WREATH from Williams Sonoma. This wreath comes fresh and dries over time. It is lovely on a front door or in the house.
13 BARR-Co. HONEYSUCKLE CANDLE from Amazon. Not only does this candle smell delicious, but the perfect peachy orange jar is just as lovely.
And now I feel like maybe we should move to a new house so I could get these gifts :)
