Going to a move-in party means that the host has his wonderful new home to celebrate about. This further indicates that the occasion you are preparing your gift for is a joyous one. With this in mind, we suggest that you go all out and be creative with your pick. In order to help, we have some gift ideas for the move-in party that may just hit the nail on the head.
Since seven is a lucky number, and we believe you want to make the receiver of your gift one lucky fellow or lady, we have exactly 7 gift ideas for move-in party. Starting with the first one:
1. The safest option of them all
Every house needs a welcoming mat. While some like it funny and witty, others tend to lean to more classic models. If you know the new residents from before, you might be aware of the group they fall into. However, if the people who will be hosting the party are new in your neighborhood, it would be best that you stick with the safe options. Mats that have words like ‘welcome’, ‘happy to see you’ are always a good choice. If you noticed a certain pet that is the part of the family, you can find a mat that has paw prints on it. It will be a great way to leave the first good impression on your new neighbors.
2. Turning it up a notch
Still safe, but a bit more funky, if you will. Now, everyone likes pie. However, the kinds of pies vary, and you can sometimes get a hit and a miss. Since this is the case even with apple pies, we suggest that you experiment a bit, and use some fruit that is not so often met in pies. Search the Internet for some interesting pie recipes, and see what seems the best to you. Do not choose the one that is the most complicated, since you will have to make it. Unless, of course, you are a pie master, in which case we can only applaud, and encourage you to continue with your work.
3. What many desire, but few acquire
Moving to Oakville is a great decision, especially if the people moving will have you as their neighbor. And the way to show your kindness is through a nice and thoughtful move-in party gift. Now, moving to a new home is the perfect opportunity to declutter and gid of what you don’t need. This usually comes with the option of later getting what you do need. So, when going through the isles, looking for some new and fancy glasses and bowls, you will be bound to stop by that rack that has all those plastic thingies for various measurements, and other intricated object of the sort. The rational one in the relationship will be the one to say that you were just as fine without those items until now. This is by no means a mistake, however… Why not break this patter at least in the home of the new residents, and put a smile on their faces with these trinkets. That is, one will smile instantly, and the other will silently thank you later, once he (or she) gets used to having those items around.
4. A personalized touch
Have you ever hear of someone complaining about having too many towels? Neither have we. You can even ask furniture movers Oakville the same question, and we are sure that they will agree. Keep in mind that their experience of working with people is great, and their opinion matters. That is why getting the new residents a nice set of towels can be one of the more appreciated gift ideas for the move-in party. In these days, it is really easy to come by various designs that would match anyone’s style and fit everyone’s pockets. If you want to make the gift a bit more personalized, have them engraved with the residents’ initials, or their names. It can even be a certain print you think describes them well. You can actually get pretty creative with this gift, although it may seem dull at first.
5. If you want to spend a bit more
This, of course, infers that you know the residents very well, and this sort of gift will make sense. Not that we are stopping you from spending a lot of people you haven’t met before. It’s your money, and we are not the boss of you by any means. To get back to the subject. We are talking about a set of classic books. Every house ought to have them. Supposing that you know the party hosts, you might also be aware of their home library’s state. We are sure they are going to be delighted to have their collection enriched with pieces that hold such value. They are, after all, classics for a reason.
If you are not too familiar with the state of their book collection, getting them some books can still be a good idea. Many people declutter and downsize when moving, and chances are some books haven’t made the cut, and you will not pack all the books you own. We are sure the new homeowners will be delighted to receive some nice and new literary works.
6. Funny at first, super useful at second
One more thing that you can never get enough of, and that won’t go out of style any time soon is toilet paper. Now, we know, it does not seem classy at all. However, hear us out. If you don’t know the party host all that well, you can skip this idea, and stick with the ones from 1-5. On the other hand, if the homeowner is your dear friend, this is a great way to make them laugh their heart out. We all need toilet paper, so the gift would be super useful. You can but a ribbon on it, to make it look more like a gift (having that it is just that). Pair it with a nice card, and you have yourself a move-in gift that will be talked about for years to come, all with a great smile. Trust us, we speak from experience.
7. On the risky side
The last, but certainly not the least is one of the gift ideas for a move-in party that will require some bravery and previous information. Namely, if you know that the homeowners wanted to have a pet, now is the time to surprise them. It doesn’t have to be a dog or a cat. Even fish can be greeted with great joy. Especially if they had an aquarium before, but haven’t managed to bring it along. If you want to be extra safe, you can get them a plant. It needs minimal taking care of, but can still make the place liven up.
