Gifts for Someone Having A New Home

I remember as the saying goes that if you will go and visit for a new home for your friend or relative you must bring something for the home owner. It is a good idea to know what is best thing to bring when you come. I did a research on it for my readers and followers. Thankful to interiordec.about.com for the nice and perfect answer for my searching.

Here you go , you can check which one you prefer. I also put on sample photos for complete ideas for your choice. Enjoy and hope you will find best gifts.

1.) Fresh Plants : A new home, even before the furniture is arranged and the drapes are up, looks more welcoming with a live, flowering plant. Plants are better than fresh cut flowers, as they live longer and don't need as much maintenance.

2.)A Wreath for the Door : Choose a wreath for the season, for a holiday, or just in colors that will look pretty on the house. If you get one that will last through the years, include a wreath storage box, too.

3.)A Gift of Food : There's so much work involved in moving and setting up housekeeping, that anyone will welcome a casserole or full dinner to enjoy as a break from all the work. Something that will go into a microwave and onto paper plates (why not include them, along with plastic silverware?) will make the meal a breeze.

4.)A Bottle of Bubbly and Flutes : Walk in the door with glasses and a cold drink, sit down, and visit a while. If you have the glasses engraved with the date, the flutes will be a memento of the first days in the new home. Everyone working to get things moved in will enjoy the thought and the drink.

5.)Decorative Scented Candles : Choose a color, choose a scent, and present a gift that will add comfort and a soothing atmosphere to an otherwise chaotic atmosphere. There's nothing like dimming the lights on a mess, lighting candles, and enjoying at least the illusion of order.

6.) A Dramatic Vase or Serving Bowl : One special piece can leave memories for every years to come. Choose a piece of crystal or silver for a formal home or interesting glass, porcelain, or pottery for a more casual setting.

7.) A Gift Basket : For a new home, it's great to receive things all together for a particular job. Here are some ideas for gift baskets for a new home.

8.) A Basket of Tools : Who can find the right screw drive or pliers when everything is packed away? Gather together the basics for the move-in.

9.) A Garden Basket : How many times have you looked around and wished you'd planted a small garden or apple tree or flowering bush when you moved into your home, rather than 5 years later? A basket with basic gardening tools, a pot, a plant, dirt, and fertilizer will be the start of a garden that will be enjoyed the whole time your friends live there.

10.) Art in Progress : You can never have enough picture hooks and hanging wire when you move into a new home. A small basket is perfect for this gift. Include a small level and photo frame, take a picture as you arrive, and present the photo for the frame, via e-mail, when you get home.

11.) Paint Supplies : It's great to have fresh supplies for a fresh paint job at a new home. Include a roll of painter's tape, a plastic or canvas drop cloth, a can of spackle, a spackle blade, roller and handle, and a good paint brush. For fun, include a few paint chips, a decorating magazine and a reminder of the URL for this site where they can find ideas.

12.) A Pair of Candlesticks : Perfect for a mantel, a dresser top, an entry table, or coffee table, choose glass, pewter, brass, or silver candlesticks for the new home.

13.) A Picture Frame : For a casual home, choose wood, pewter, bamboo, or glass. For a more formal setting look for crystal or silver. Everyone has room for one more picture.

Did you find any interesting gifts? Hope so...
