Moving into your first home is so exciting! It's like a fresh start. You get to paint, decorate, and position things just the way you want.
I thought it would be cute and much more useful to use a colander as the basket to fill with other items, such as a rosemary plant, some wooden cooking spoons, kitchen towels, and one of my favorite hand soaps.
Of course you can customize it for the person. For example, if they're avid movie watchers, you can fill a basket filled with popcorn, candy, a couple movies, a nice throw to snuggle up on the couch, or a gift card to a local movie rental store. Or maybe they like to garden? Fill it with garden tools, seeds, and a hat!
Add a nice note to welcome them to the neighborhood, or congratulate them on their new purchase and you have a nice, thoughtful gift, that they are sure to love.
Do you have any other housewarming DIY gift ideas? I'd love to know what they are!
