DIY Housewarming Gift Sets



There’s been some shuffling in the neighborhood with great neighbors moving out and a couple equally wonderful neighbors moving in. I’ve never done much in the way of housewarming gifts before.  Usually it was a plant or some flowers from Trader Joe’s, but this time I felt I wanted to do something a bit more special. I, of course, turned to Pinterest for inspiration and threw together a couple versions of housewarming gifts I thought would fit these families and their new homes.

I got two 1-gallon cookie jars and a cute woven basket from Target.  In the jars and basket are different combinations of my favorite kitchen items.  Natural sponges, Meyers dishwashing liquid, Magic Erasers (they seriously can clean ANYTHING!) candles, JR Watkins room freshener, picture hanging sets, levels, natural scrubbers and dish cloths.

My trusty husband wrote the tags, because his writing is MUCH better than mine, and I attached them to the gift sets with cute colorful twine (tags and twine from Jo-Ann’s).

I got a little carried away and each of these gifts ranged in price from about $20-$35.  I just thought it was all so cute together.  You could go with a smaller jar/basket and cut down on the amount of goodies in it to make it more cost effective, but I thought I’d do it up to make up for all my Trader Joe’s cheapies over the years.


Do you have a favorite go-to housewarming gift?
