The homebuying season is in full swing, and the custom of giving housewarming gifts is just as practiced as it ever was. Buying a home is a big life event, and it only makes sense that we want to commemorate that with a thoughtful gift. It’s easy to find the right thing if you know what your friends or family are missing in order to settle-in comfortably. If you don’t know, then you may have to get a little creative. Here are some ideas to source thoughtful housewarming gifts:
Plants make the perfect housewarming gift. They work with just about any style or decor and can instantly freshen up a space. Just don’t forget to include some care instructions to make maintenance easier. From tiny potted succulents to something larger, there are plenty of options to customize this gift to match the recipient’s style and personality.
If you know the new homeowners appreciate handmade artwork, why not gift them something to commemorate their move? A pair of handmade ceramic mugs can be a great option. Even a planter to go with your plant can make a nice gift. Going for items that also serve a function can help your friends from feeling cluttered with decorative gifts that need to be displayed.
While artwork is usually a tricky choice for a housewarming gift, if the homeowners are new to Chicago or excited to be committing to a home here, a small piece of art that reflects their love for the city can be a fun gift.
While housewarming gifts are always given with great intentions, sometimes, they can feel like one more thing to find a home for in a new space. If you know your friends enjoy a minimal aesthetic or are already a bit bogged down with their move, go with a consumable gift they can enjoy in their new home. Some freshly baked bread or cookies, for instance, can be a thoughtful treat.
