It’s doesn’t feel right visiting someone empty handed, and this is never more true when you are invited over to someone’s home for the first time. My Brother and Sister-In-Law recently moved into their new abode and I wanted to get them a nice housewarming gift to celebrate when we visited them this weekend.
So how do you decide what to buy? My hubby and I mulled over what we really appreciated getting when we initially started out, what gifts helped us, and what products we love to use now. And they are all kinda boring… washing liquids and our fav detergents never really make for exciting gifts although extremely practical! Other than that, they were all alcoholic. More exciting but common. I expect they will get a good dozen bottles when friends and family visit. So instead, I went with a more meaningful gift, one that I put a lot of thought into, but was really easy to put together. Let me know what you think! It was a lot of fun to do…
The contents of the tin all came with a label, which I have put below if you would like to reference for future use…
Bread – so your home will never go hungry
Salt – so you will never find yourself in a pinch
Candle – to bring love & light to your new home
Honey – to make it officially home, sweet home
White Wine – for mild summer night BBQ’s
Red Wine – for winter night snuggles
Soap – to wash away any troubles
Chocolate Chip Cookies – for old traditions, & the excitement of making your own
Jam – to spread the love!
Herbs – for a household full of abundance & prosperity
I will post my recipe for the bread should anyone want it, in my next foodie post 🙂
Let me know if you would add any items, and what phrases you would give them, if you were to give this gift.
What were the things you really appreciated getting when you moved in?
