Thank friends and family members for celebrating your new home with heartfelt favors. You don't have to spend a lot of money on housewarming favor items to make a lasting impression on partygoers. Choose home and garden-related items, such as kitchenware and decor pieces, as charming, themed party gifts.
Show your party guests how much you appreciate their attendance by treating them to delicious homemade treats. Whip up a few batches of cookies in house, flower, bird and other home and garden-related shapes. If your housewarming party has a theme, such as beach or golf-inspired, design cookies to reflect it. Place the cookies in organza gift bags with a tag stating the guests' names and "thank you." Other handmade party favor options include jars of strawberry jam, tomato salsa, applesauce, pickles or any other treats made from your garden bounty. Enhance the favor jars with ribbon bows and personalized labels.
Personalized barware gifts make thoughtful and elegant housewarming party favors. Have the glasses customized with the party details, or with the guests' names and initials. Serve drinks in the charming glasses during the soiree and allow guests to take them home after the party. If you aren't serving drinks at the party, use the glasses as creative bud vases and fill them with stems of dainty flowers instead. Depending on the theme of the party, choose sparkling wine, margarita, highball or martini glasses, beer mugs or champagne flutes. If you are on a budget, treat guests to inexpensive-yet-charming shot glasses instead.
Ice Cream Sundae Kits
Delight guests of all ages with whimsical and useful ice cream sundae kits. Save money by choosing high-quality plastic dishes instead of glass. Fill small pastel polka-dotted or striped bags with all of the ice cream sundae essentials, such as a dish, spoon and a scoop. Include sweet treats such as mini marshmallows, fudge and caramel sauce packets and vibrantly hued sprinkles so guests can customize their sundaes.
