An Easy and Thoughtful Housewarming Gift | Family Economics

By Tori Tait

            

Recently, we’ve had a few new families move into our neighborhood and I’ve been searching for a thoughtful, yet simple, gift to deliver to our new friends. After thinking it through, I had the idea to put some of my family’s favorite “must have” kitchen items into a jar. I love that everything is contained in a nice glass jar that the family can repurpose once they’ve opened up the gift.

We added a welcome home tag (which we printed from our home computer), tied a piece of twine around the lid and voila! We’ve come up with a simple, yet thoughtful welcoming gift. 

Here’s what we put inside:

After adding our favorite kitchen items, we twisted on the lid, secured the tag, tied it with twine and it was ready for delivery!

What have you done to help welcome new neighbors?
