DIY Housewarming Kit Gift Idea

Traditional gifts for new home owners or renters usually include plants, wine, and baked goods—all wonderful, but more fun than practical. This carefully put together gift basket includes all the bits and bobs a new home owner may need but may be too strapped for cash, or think they have only to find their toolbox is buried somewhere in a mountain of boxes.


Including items like wall anchors, measuring tape, or other moving-in essentials in your care kit, makes for a thoughtful and practical housewarming gift your hosts or hostesses will really appreciate.

If you're feeling extra generous totally feel free to throw in that wine bottle, too!
