We recently had new neighbors move in next door and I wanted to bring over something to welcome them to the neighborhood. I think it’s worth noting when you’re putting together a housewarming gift, it doesn’t need to be expensive. Something homemade or specially wrapped I think feels like you put more time and care into it and feels special. I’m showing you how to create a thoughtful housewarming gift.
And scroll down for my free printable to add to your housewarming gift!
How to create a thoughtful housewarming gift
1.) Start with your vessel
I think baskets or decorative trays are a great place to start and nice way to deliver your gift.
I found a similar one to the one I used at Target.
2.) A baked good
Something freshly baked is always a nice touch. I made chocolate chip cookies, wrapped them in parchment paper and tied with twine. (My homemade banana bread or Joanna Gaines’ lemon poppyseed bread is also a favorite).
3.) Something decorative
I made a cute set of stamped books that says “Home Sweet Home” for our neighbors to display in their home.
Head to my Etsy shop for more custom bookstacks!
4.) Fresh flowers
I added some fresh cut blooms from the garden and made a cute little printable card.

You can add your phone number or a little hand written note on the back to make it more personal.
And here it is all put together!

Nicolle, this can work in reverse too. When we moved into our new home after a few months I took some handmade and baked items around to meet my neighbors!
I think giving and receiving a gift like yours would be so thoughtful.
