House Warming Gift Ideas
Giving a gift as a house warming present has a long history and the nature of the gift has often changed to suit the tastes of the time.
The concept of a house warming party dates back to the medieval period – where house warming party attendants would typically bring firewood. Considered a necessity in order to warm a house and banish any potential vagrant spirits.
Pineapples were a popular gift during the 17th century, especially for a housewarming. Their novelty and relative scarcity during the time of early European colonialism resulted in their popularity with the upper and middle-classes of the period as status-symbol.
Traditional house warming gifts were based upon their practicality and the needs of the house movers. In more contemporary times, housewarming gifts tend to be more sentimental and focused more on giving.
With people moving and renting properties in increasing numbers, a typically modern gift for newly moved couples or friend would be a bottle of wine, or flowers. However we think that the typical rota of house warming present ideas needs modernising even more.
