How to congratulate someone on a new home?

Moving into a new home is a massive step for most people. It is certainly not something one does every day. A new home brings fresh possibilities, new hopes, dreams, and joy. It can also be exhausting, with the myriad of details that need to be dealt with.

Whether it is a trendy, tiny bachelor pad for a young adult, a large home with a garden for a growing family or a smaller downsized townhouse for an elderly couple – congratulations are called for!

Congratulations are always in order to celebrate a new home, whether bought or rented. The best way to congratulate friends, family, business colleagues or new neighbors is by offering some form of a gift, tangible or intangible.

Depending on the circumstances, gifts can be tricky to choose and come in all sizes, shapes, forms and costs. Here are some hints to help you choose the perfect congratulatory gift idea.

  1. Choosing a gift can be a dilemma if the person is not close to you. If you don’t know the person well, choosing the right gift can be a challenge. Perhaps it is a business colleague, an acquaintance from a recreation club or a parent at your local school. You don’t want to offer a gift that they won’t like, may clash with their décor theme, or simply not be used. In a case like this, a simple gift card with a lovely message will say it all. Choose a generic but thoughtful message like ‘Congratulations on your new home – may it bring you and your family years of joy and happiness!’

  2. If you know the person well décor items are a great choice for a new home. You know their likes and dislikes and can choose the perfect piece. Décor items are always well received and can go towards filling up empty spaces. A beautifully framed picture or abstract artwork will instantly transform a large wall. A lovely ornament can stand on a shelf, mantle-piece or side table. Choose a glorious coffee table book on a subject that they love. You can always add to a special hobby that the person has. Do they enjoy cooking? Offer a stunning recipe book, a trendy kitchen gadget packed with features or a cool kitchen wall clock. Are they animal lovers? The dog or cat will appreciate a new home or a new toy too! People with green fingers can never have enough garden tools, flower pots and gardening books.

  3. Edible gifts – although they may not last too long edible gifts are sure to delight. Spoil your loved ones or friends with a basket of decadent chocolates, nuts, biscuits and snacks. Connoisseurs will appreciate a bottle of their favorite vintage wine, rare brandy or whiskey. A bottle of bubbly is the ideal way to start a housewarming party. Children will be thrilled with gift packs of popcorn, colorful macaroons and fun cookies of all flavors, shapes and sizes.

  4. Gifts from nature. Sending flowers is a lovely way to welcome new people into your neighborhood. A glorious floral bouquet in a vase is perfect to bring color, life and fragrance into a new home. Go one step further and offer a gift of nature that will last for years to come. A shrub, bush or tree makes a stunning presentation and will always be a reminder of the giver. Fruit trees are especially sentimental, bearing crops of edible delights year after year.

  5. Offering an intangible gift like your personal help is wonderful if you have the time to spare and want to make a difference. You can offer help with cleaning, unpacking and attending to some of the myriads of details that comes with moving into a new home. You can offer to paint, weed the garden or wash the windows. Every little bit goes a long way to making a new house feel like a home.

  6. Introduce the newcomers to your neighborhood. A wonderful gift that you can offer is to introduce people to their new neighborhood. Take them on a tour and show them where the local shopping malls are, the schools, gas stations, bus routes, local stores, pharmacies and medical facilities. This simple gesture will go a long way to making people feel at home and comfortable with their day-to-day needs.

  7. Homemade gifts have a unique appeal. If you have time to spare and enjoy cooking, bake a delicious cake, a plate of biscuits or a pot of warming soup. Newcomers are rushed off their feet and will appreciate a meal on their first day. Are you the crafty type and love creating beautiful things? Your new neighbors would love a welcome sign, a hanging birdhouse for the garden or a small decorative flower pot to stand on a patio. New homeowners struggle with loads of unfamiliar keys – handy woodworkers can make a stunning key rack to hang next to the front door and help them organize the keys. Don’t want to spend a lot of time or money? A fun and cost-effective gift idea is to frame the front page of the local newspaper on the day they moved in and offer as a keepsake.

  8. Personalized gifts make unique keepsakes that are meaningful and will be treasured for years to come. Consider a warm, cozy blanket with a stunning full-color picture that can be customized with a message of your choice. You can add the family emblem, the family name, date and sentimental wording. The blanket can be used for picnics, as a throw over a chair, as a bed cover or can be hung up as a wall decoration. Some of our blanket designs come with wonderful wording that is sure to embody the unique feelings of a new home - “A house is made of brick and stone, A home is made of love alone."

  9. Gift Vouchers. Feeling bad because you are rushed off your feet and don’t have the time to choose a gift personally? Gift vouchers are always well received and give the recipient the opportunity to choose something that they really want or need. Gift vouchers are also ideal if you do not know the people well. Rather offer the choice that a gift voucher gives, than a gift that they may dislike and pass on!
