Packing everything and moving to a new house is stressful and that is just the start of the work. After that starts the hours you spend in stores and online on different sites like My Active Home, Amazon, and many others. These sites give you great insights into what is available on the market and which product will give you what features. They’re your guide to buying the best home products you want in your house.
Here is an idea for those who are looking for gifts for their friends or family members or new neighbors who just brought a new home and got settled in it. Instead of buying a bottle of wine as a housewarming gift, or some dumb tchotchke you grabbed in desperation… What your newly-nesting friends would appreciate so much more (especially in those first few weeks, when they’re surrounded by boxes) are elevated versions of the basic cleaning tools and supplies that were likely left behind when they moved.
A new space requires a lot of personal touches to make it feel homey and you can help your host, which can be friends, family or your new neighbors achieve that by giving them gifts that can remind them of you every time they look at them.
Here are five unique gifts that will amaze your hosts and hopefully you’ll be getting invited again at their parties for loads of free food and socialization
1. Embroidered gifts
You can give your host pillow covers, napkins, towels, jackets and several other things that they can use in their daily routine. However, by embroidery digitizing them you can put a personal touch to the gift. Then whenever they use that gift they’ll always be reminded of you. There are many embroidery digitizing services in the market. You can get their names or phrase printed on almost anything. Embroidery digitizing takes minimum time, effort and cost but it is a thoughtful gift that makes the host feel you care and love for them.
2. Personalized Rolling Pins

Add your touch of artistic style to a rolling pin, wooden spoon or spatula with a wood-burned pattern of your choice. Choose a playful collection of polka dots, stars or even their monogram. They will love this gift and might as well remember to save you a piece of the baked dish every time they use the rolling pin.
