Unlike a wedding, most couples moving into a new home don’t sign up for a registry with a pre-approved list of gifts to choose from when you attend their housewarming gathering.
Therefore, it’s up to you to figure out what the couple needs, what they would appreciate, what would best match their home, what would appropriately demonstrate you’re thinking about them… or all of the above! This is no small challenge.
In fact, did you know there’s even some very specific house warming guidelines you should be following? For example, most experts don’t advise simply gifting the couple cash, no matter how appealing it might sound to let them choose a gift for themselves!
So, how do you find the perfect housewarming gift -- something thoughtful and useful that the couple won’t find themselves wanting to regift a few months down the road?
Good news: we have a few suggestions.
Why Personalized Gifts Make the Best Gifts
When you’re struggling to find a housewarming gift for the couple who already has everything or you’re just not sure what they might need, the answer is something truly unique.
If you give a gift that absolutely no one else has, you can be sure you’re not giving a gift they already have or won’t need -- and you’re definitely winning the “most thoughtful gift” award.
The best way to give a gift that no one else has is to buy a gift that’s personalized. You can take something as simple as a glass soap bottle and turn it into a beautiful, personalized gift that stands out in any home.
A personalized gift truly demonstrates love and care because it shows that you put specific thought into what the couple would enjoy or appreciate. Something personalized sends a completely different message than buying something mass produced that everyone else has!
And what better way to begin the couple’s journey in their new home than by decorating it with something that was made especially for them?
Sprucing Up Their New Kitchen or Bathroom With Personalized Soap Dispensers
Too often when we move into a new home, we find ourselves running out to our nearest store for a few of the essentials we completely forgot we would need right away: soap, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, that sort of thing.
Suddenly, you find yourself with tons of generic items that don’t necessarily match your decor, but were an in-the-moment necessity, so you settled for that disposable bottle of dish soap for the kitchen or foaming hand soap for the bathroom.
You can save the new couple this hassle with the perfect housewarming gift: reusable glass pump dispensers -- a gift that’s not only functional, but super stylish.
Personalized Glass Pump Dispensers
