Perfect gifts for house blessings

It is typical in Pinoy culture that before homeowners move into their new abode, a house blessing is celebrated with family and friends, to usher in more luck and prosperity into the new address. During such an occasion, guests usually bring a gift. It need not be expensive, just thoughtful and preferably something that the homeowners may use. 

If you’re having trouble thinking of the perfect token, you need not fret as we have some wonderful ideas for gifts that you’d be proud to give. 

1. You can never go wrong with food or wine. In Italy, bread is usually given as a sign of wishing the owner never to go hungry. Over time, the simple bread offering has evolved to different forms such as cookies, cakes, and other sweet pastry treats to convey your hope for their prosperity.

2. You may also consider giving them some decorations for their new home. It would be wise to buy something that is more classic and encompassing in style like crystal vases or bowls as these would go well with any type of interior decor. You can also go in the direction of gifting them with scented candles. 

3. Potted blooms are also an ideal gift, just make sure that the new homeowners don’t have any allergies. To put a more practical twist to this gift, why not give them potted herbs? It could inspire them to start their own garden and it would be greatly helpful in their cooking. 

4. A nice personalized touch to typical gifts of linens and towels would be to embroider the names or initials of the homeowners onto them. It’s a thoughtful gesture that will not go unnoticed by the happy recipients.  

5. With many bare walls in the house that need some sprucing up, you may also want to gift the hosts with a pretty piece of art. This, however, entails knowing the personalities and styles of the homeowners. If you are unsure of what type of artwork they like, you can simply put a nice photograph of them in a classic frame.
