While we might not be heading to housewarming parties this year, we may still want to celebrate those friends and family members moving into new homes. Sending or delivering a small housewarming gift is a great way to send your good wishes. If you know your friends are in need of something specific for their home, you’re in luck. If not, you’ll need to be a bit more thoughtful and creative. Here are a few ideas that make great housewarming gifts for new Chicago homeowners:
With plants, that is. A plant makes a perfect housewarming gift. It works in just about any style or aesthetic and can instantly freshen up a space. Just don’t forget to include some quick care instructions so maintenance is a snap. From tiny potted succulents to a larger plant, there are plenty of options to customize this gift to match your friends style and personality.
Made By Hand
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. Check out our recent article for some great local options!
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 example, can be a thoughtful treat.
