When it comes to giving gifts to our friends, we’ve always been the kinds of people who would much rather make our loved ones something than simply buying them from a store. We’ve had a number of friends move house recently, which is why we’ve had our eyes peeled lately for DIY housewarming gift ideas that we can welcome into their new space with!
Are you feeling just as interested in the idea of making DIY housewarming gifts as we are, if not more, because you think it’ll mean even more to your friends to know that you created something specifically for them? Check out these 15 fantastic ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance.
1. DIY housewarming supplies jar gift
If you’re going to spend the time and energy it takes to create or put together some kind of gift for a friend who just got a new place, would you rather make it something that your friend might actually need or use? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Oh Happy Day made this housewarming supplies jar filled with knick knacks and cleaning supplies that a person who is unpacking and can’t find all their things might not even realize they need during the whole process.
2. Relaxation based housewarming gift basket
Perhaps you really enjoy this whole idea of putting together some kind of kit for your pals who just moved houses but instead of gearing the contents towards the move itself, you can’t help wondering whether you might give them some things that will help them unwind instead? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Houston Moms put together this relaxation based housewarming basket instead! They give you a list of spa-like goodies to consider alongside a candle and a bottle of wine.
3. Handy things housewarming basket
Were you feeling quite intrigued by the basic concept of making some kind of useful supplies basket for your friend who just moved homes but you found yourself thinking about a few other things besides the ones you saw on the list in the previous tutorial we showed you? Then we think you’ll be pleased to find out that there are several other things you can include as well! This tutorial from Create, Craft, Love concentrates more on things like batteries, super glue, and duct tape that will help you power and fix things in the event that anything goes wrong.
4. Cookie making jars
Did you actually really like the idea of making and giving your friends something that will help them unwind once their moving and unpacking process is finally all finished but you’d rather gift something that the kids can get in on as well? In that case, rather than a bottle of wine and a spa basket, we have a feeling you might get along a little better with something like these cookie ingredient mason jars outlined step by step on American Community in France.
