Renting or buying a new home is a huge step. I know firsthand because my wife and I just bought our first house last year, and not surprisingly, some of the most prominently displayed and appreciated items in our home are the thoughtful and heartfelt housewarming gifts that came along with it.
Whether you’re a realtor, a friend, a neighbor, or a family member, housewarming gifts are a wonderful and lasting way to share your excitement with the homeowners and celebrate their new space. Check out some of our recommendations below to see if something catches your eye.
Before we get to the list, special shout out to our absolutely amazing real estate agent and friend, Ashley Ruh, for her guidance, patience, and compassion during our home buying experience in the Denver area. We closed in no time and had zero issues, and she even gave us a housewarming gift! What do ya know! If you’re moving to the Denver area, you can find out more information here.
*Note: While we suggest maps in our designs below because of their inherent uniqueness, we are open to any and all requests in terms of customizing your gift. Just drop us an e-mail!
Personalized Wine Glasses
Look at any list of housewarming gift ideas for new homeowners, and wine tends to be in the Top 3 when it comes to traditional gifts. But in addition to that awesome bottle of pinot noir you’re planning to give, why not take it a step further by adding something rather untraditional.
Enter the Outward Cartography Custom Etched Wine Glass, personalized with a map of the area and a marker precisely on where the new house or apartment is located, plus text of your choice. These earn a special place in the hearts of your friends, family, or clients, and are bound to prompt feelings of love and appreciation.
Custom-Printed Map Coasters (Set of Four)
These stylish coasters are a huge hit when it comes to housewarming gifts. They’re unique, customizable, and look good in any room or color scheme. Except the bathroom, that might be weird. But I don’t judge.
The cool thing about these coasters is that if you choose the custom map print (with text and a marker of your choice), the four coasters form a four-piece puzzle of the overall map of the area centered on the new home. Plus, these don’t get stained or marked up by water rings, so they’ll last as long as the house does!
Customized Pint Glasses
It is nearly impossible for pint glasses to be anything but a solid gift. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve met anyone before who didn’t have at least one or two for whatever occasion. However, I’ve met very few people with notably intriguing pint glasses, which is where Outward Cartography comes in.
Have you ever seen a pint glass etched 360-degrees with intricate and detailed map designs that simultaneously showcase love and thoughtfulness at such a profound level that tears are brought to the eyes of all who gaze upon it??? Me neither, but these pint glasses come pretty close. Buy a pair for the new homeowners and see for yourself!
