My parents will be moving house in a month or two, and I’ve been gathering bits and bobs for the housewarming present I’m giving them.
It’s a collection of useful household items, presented in a pretty container and tied with ribbon. I tried hard to think of all the things a person needs when they move house, and think that if I had had all of these supplies gathered together in one container it would have been very helpful.
The metal pail is from a little gift shop near where I live, and I’ve filled it with:
- Key tags to help them label all their new keys
- Antiseptic cream
- Blue tack
- Plastic food containers
- Postage stamps
Other things I thought might help people in a new home included: menus from local takeaway restaurants, leaflets about things to do in the local area, a torch and batteries, address labels, a notebook and pens, candles, and an emergency bar of chocolate (or six).
