With a new house comes the responsibility to make it more lively and beautiful. Your friends need some attractive home decor items. What could be better than lighting up their new shelter with a few candles and fairy lights? You can also dig deeper and find innovative lights offering a good amount of illumination. The key is to transform their new house into a comfortable home. Grab a few lamps and candles with suitable holders. You can find the lights in cute packaging as well.

Ease Out A Little with Good Booze

The Bro Basket

After days filled with making extensive arrangements and aligning the furniture, the house owners surely need to relax a little. There’s no better way to calm the atmosphere than enjoying booze with friends. Just grab a bottle of Jack Daniels and get going to the housewarming celebration. You can also gift a whiskey glassware set with the alcohol. Not only will this add to the celebration, but also contribute to their crockery collection. Make the housewarming evening worthwhile with the Irish scotch whiskey and gossip till you drop.

If whiskey isn’t your favorite, you can gift any alcohol. From fancy red wine to strong yet warm rum, choose amongst the variety of options available. However, make sure to grab imported booze with health benefits and an authentic flavor. Along with lightening up the mood, it will also make the party more lively and fun.

Go Green with Saplings & Flowers

With all the environmental campaigning at the peak, a few seedlings and flowers make the best housewarming gift. The new homeowners require a few indoor plants to rejuvenate their new shelter. What could be better than adding to their green mission and gifting them plants? Grab a few plants that are low maintenance and easy to grow.
