They say that moving is very high on the scale of stress levels that a person can experience. However, there is also a joy of new start and the new chapter in a new place. Nice manners order for friends and family to give something nice to the new homeowners and in that way wish them good luck in settling in at their new place. Housewarming gifts tend to be a bit cliché, so try to make them a bit more original. Here are some of the coolest housewarming gift ideas.
Take Out Menu Book
It is just amazing how many restaurants do the takeaway these days. You can order almost anything to be brought to your home. Especially, when you are tired and you are not in the mood for cooking, you just want to grab that menu from that restaurant that you’ve been to, but you just cannot seem to find it. Another scenario is that you are hungry, but you don’t know what you could eat at the moment. For both of these troubles, the answer is the coolest folder that works as the take out menu book. It is used to store all those takeout menus at one place for you to browse through when you’re hungry.
Cocktail Recipe Book
Even for those that are not so skilled with their drinks, this will be a nice present. Everyone likes a cocktail or two and everybody finds them interesting to make. A nice cocktail recipe book will inspire any homeowner to buy a bottle or two and couple of fruits, and even put some of those glasses that they got to some good use. It can turn out to be an evening of a lot of fun and creativity.
This is the best gift ever, for those friends that love beer and always have it with them. This gift is even better if you make it yourself or personalize it in any way. It is the best thing if you want to grab a six pack of beers and bring them over to your friend, out for a barbeque or at a picnic. If you are in the garden or your backyard whole day, working, this cool wooden six pack will be very useful. With a little bit of DIY, this can easily become your best friend’s favorite thing.
Spice Rack with Spices
This is another lovely gift for your friends that love to cook. You can make a spice rack yourself and you can make the spice bottles also. Think about those vintage spice racks with hand-written labels and hand-painted ornaments. These can be even more interesting if the spices are exotic, carefully chosen and put into different containers. For example, you can put sea salt into a glass jar, mixed peppers into little grinder and a live plant of basil into a small plant pot and have it all together in the rack. This really makes a very original piece of new home giftware that people will appreciate for its usefulness and decorative value even if they don’t cook that much.
It is the thought that counts, but if the thought is creative, it counts even more. Therefore, don’t be afraid to give your gift a little bit of personal touch and to give in to some DIY. Your friends will definitely appreciate it and love your gift for it. Just make sure that it is something that they need and that doesn’t take up too much of their space. After all, it is their space to fill and not yours.
