While many of us are packing bags to head out on vacation, others are packing boxes and heading to new digs. Summer is one of the busiest times of year to change addresses, and what better way to help friends and neighbors celebrate their new abodes than with a DIY housewarming present sure to delight? 

Take traditional new-address gifts up a notch with these three personalized basket ideas, bound to warm new homes at all stages of transition: 

Whether it’s 400 square feet or 4,000, every first-time homeowner revels in a new pad. Get the celebration underway by offering spunky items to stock a fun housewarming party. We’re thinking a light and breezy Bamboo Fiber Serving Tray topped with colorful mandala-printed platessummery wine glasses and a set of matching tumblers to round it all out. 

Show friends how to “go big” and “go home” by assembling this multi-purpose and colorful picnic basket with a variety of matching goodies: an aquamarine Sangria pitcher and tumblers, party prepping bamboo bowls and fam-friendly favorites like trail mix to nosh on while they unpack.

Help friends embrace their new (smaller) dwelling as they adjust to life on their own by helping them kick back, relax and enjoy! Fill a chic woven Nate Berkus basket with a sleek white geometric vasecozy cotton throw blanket and—the most necessary of all—statement wine bottle stoppers for that nice bottle of their favorite vino you’ve dropped in.
