Why is it called a “housewarming” gift? It's actually a term that descends literally from the act of warming a new house. Long before central heating; invited guests would bring firewood as gifts. They’d light the hearths throughout the home and warm it up.
In modern times, the tradition of “housewarming” has evolved, but the sentiment holds true. Sharing a Welcome Wagon gift box filled with an assortment of curated homewares is a wonderful way to warm any new space.
What does it include?
Guest Towel by Scents and Feel. The fouta guest towel is versatile enough to be used as a hand towel in the bathroom, or as a tea/dish towel in your kitchen.
Olive Wood Cutting Board by Scents and Feel. It may be smaller than your average board, but it’s mighty! Use for cutting, a cheese or charcuterie board or as a decorative accent in your kitchen.
Leather Coasters by Stitch & Shutter. Set of four, handmade square coasters is both practical and decorative. A classic addition to any space.
Coastal Cyprus Petite Candle by Makana Candles. A scent story of a lush, verdant coastime that captures salty, ocean aire with conifer trees and grounded by earthy peppergrass.
Story Behind the Box:
Whether I’ve moved across town, across the state or across the country, I’ve learned a new address is exciting, but also exhausting. Lots of packing, planning, organizing, loading…THEN... unloading, unpacking, reorganizing, etc. Wow!
I love those first few weeks after all the boxes are unpacked and you’re finally able to relax and enjoy the new space. The Welcome Wagon is the perfect way to acknowledge all of the work spent moving while offering a few of my favorite (and practical) homewares intended to warm any abode.
This handcrafted gift box is a sweet and thoughtful addition to any home. Whether it’s their first apartment, condo or forever home.
All of our signature gift boxes are delivered in a sustainably-sourced premium cardboard box with recycled ivory crinkle-style paper and tied together with a luxurious ribbon. You’re encouraged to include a handwritten message on our custom letterpress stationery – note details available at checkout.
