Wow! We have finally found a great list of fabulous and meaningful holiday gifts for the new home owner or pretty much anyone who is into home decor and style! The folks over at Things Remembered did a wonderful job of putting together an article explaining the tradition of housewarming gifting and a list of their 12 favorite housewarming gifts along with each gift’s special meaning. Then our friends at Party Idea Pros actually did the research to find products worthy of gifting. And of course, we had to add a few of our own home for the holidays gift ideas to add a bit of holiday flare.
The Tradition of Housewarming Gifts
Welcoming new homeowners with a gift is a time-honored tradition found in cultures across the world. While gifts of bread, wine and other food items are perfect traditional housewarming gifts, household accessories like candles, plants and throws also make great gift ideas that bring character and carry significant meaning. Give these gifts individually or create a larger impact by arranging a combination of them in a basket.
Looking for inspiration?
Here are our 12 favorite home for the holidays gift ideas along with each gift’s special meaning.
- Bread – May their home never know hunger.
- Wine – May they always enjoy life and never go thirsty.
- Honey, Jams & Syrups – May their home be filled with the sweetness of life.
- Olive Oil – May they always have health and well-being.
- Salts & Spices – May their home be full of flavor.
- Wood – May they have stability, harmony and peace.
- Candle – May their home always be filled with light.
- Blanket – May they keep warm season after season.
- Pillow – May their home always be a place of comfort.
- Coin – May they dwell in good fortune.
- House Plants – May their home promote growth.
- Brooms & Doormats – May they live in a clean and tidy house.
