Housewarming Gifts Welcome Them Home



Our homes are the center of our lives, no matter how busy we are. Leaving an old dwelling is often a gasp of fresh air, a change of scenery, the beginning of a new stage in life - and there are myriad of housewarming customs designed to celebrate this important step and support loved ones through the transition. It doesn’t matter whether your favorite newlyweds are moving into their first flat, beloved family members moving into a spacious house, or even if good friends have just finished remodeling - there’s a reason to send housewarming gifts, celebrate with friends and family, or even to expand the celebrations to the new community, help them meet the new neighbors, and make new friends.

There are many omens that portend the success of a move and customs that aim to make the move into a new house auspicious. In Slavic cultures, for instance, it is considered important to let a cat go into the new home first; this is said to remove any possible evil spirits and bring in the kind ones. In addition, tradition dictates that that the place where the cat settles in the new home is a good place for a bedroom or the nursery. Asian cultures, have a rich and engaging communal blessing ritual for a new home that blends into a housewarming celebration. Specifically in Thailand, it is customary to bring rice, water, and a knife as housewarming gifts; these are symbols intended to wish the new homeowners fertility, prosperity, and security respectively.

Housewarming

Curiously enough, in Korea, people often bring rolls of toilet paper and washing powder to a housewarming. Once upon a time, when Korea was in an economic downslide, these items were quite expensive for many average Korean families, and giving them was regarded as a way of ensuring the family’s. Alternatively, in Scotland and some areas of Ireland a frog sculpture or ceramics with frog motifs are considered to bring good luck and good fortune. In modern America, housewarming gifts are often themed with bluebirds because they symbolize good luck, or a pineapple motif because they symbolize warmth and hospitality. Every culture has its own way to create a successful housewarming party and - of course - its own set of proper housewarming gifts.

In general, it is customary for housewarming to bring - or send, if you are far away from your dear ones - gifts for friends that include household items and appliances, ceramics, tea sets, and those beautiful knickknacks that make a home real home. Flowers and plants (especially potted ones), fruit and wine, along with other gourmet treats are always appropriate too, each having it’s own meaning: flowers and plants beautify the house, wine brings happiness and joy, bread means prosperity, and salt adds just a pinch of good luck.

With so many options to choose from, one can assemble a truly personal gift with a meaningful message, no matter what part of the world the gift is intended for. To make a new home their own, the lucky homeowners (or renters) often need something with a personal touch from the people who make them what they are, people that know them and care about them. So if your friend or family member is getting a new house, moving to a new flat, or just had their place remodeled - support them in this new important step by assembling something special to celebrate with them.
