Gift Hampers to Celebrate a New Home and Housewarming Gifts

One of the biggest purchases your family or friends will ever make is buying a new home. Celebrate in their success, excitement and anticipation of moving into their new haven with a congratulatory housewarming gift. It does not matter how big or small your budget is, the thought behind the gift is the most important thing and new home owners will really appreciate the gesture. Top gift picks include a bottle of sparkling wine or champagne with champagne flutes for toasting or with an ice bucket to present the champagne and to keep drinks cool for future celebratory events. You can also add a range of New Zealand made gourmet food to savour. Useful household gift products for the kitchen, for dining or for the garden, like our Gardeners Wooden Gift Box set are great options. Or try decorative home decor items as these are a popular choice.

Scents have such a nostalgic inducing effect and giving a gift of a stunning home fragrance diffuser or candle are ideal housewarming gift ideas. French company Cote Noire have created an exquisite room diffuser with gorgeous roses presented in a stylish glass vase with gold crest and set in a gel infused perfume. Ready to gift in a gold embossed gift box presentation look. Or see New Zealand based Surmanti's handcrafted Long Burning Eco Soya Candle housed in an elegant black airtight glass jar with lid, featuring a gold embossed Surmanti signature coin. These pure soybean and botanical oils candles are 100% vegetable and have well over 50 hours burn time. Gift wrapped in a unique matte black luxury tube with matching gold detailing and ribboned, ready to send!

Real Estate Settlement Gift Baskets for Vendors and Purchasers

Kiwi real estate agents send gifts to their vendors and purchasers when a property deal goes unconditional and for settlement day. Acknowledging and thanking a vendor for entrusting them with marketing the sale of their property is a thoughtful gesture which helps cement the relationship and seeds for referrals and repeat business. A housewarming gift of congratulations for a purchaser on the acquisition of their new home is always appreciated, well remembered and will resonate with your gift recipients. Incorporating a gift with a personalised or a company brand ensures that all important brand power creating a lasting impression.

These impactful bows are the answer for the all important settlement day to create a real occasion on the purchasers arrival.
