As you may have read in our recent blog post, Why Weav Gift Baskets are Perfect Closing Gifts, we love the idea of a local housewarming gift.
We asked a handful of realtors what they thought made the perfect housewarming and closing gift. Here's what they said:
“A gift that can make their new home warm and welcoming.”
“A basket that can showcase some local Spokane companies, especially to those who have just moved to Spokane.”
"A gift basket that can introduce new comers to Spokane to some great local companies."
With their suggestions, we created the Welcome Home gift basket.
The Weav Welcome Home Gift Basket
When it comes to making the perfect welcome home gift basket for new Spokane residents, we paid attention to what realtors and what new arrivals said they wanted to see for our new gift basket.
Among the things new arrivals wanted to see? Bathroom and cleaning essentials, snacks, something cozy, and something to make them feel welcome in their new community. We think the new items in our Welcome Home Gift Basket below fit all of those requests and more.
This basket features 6 local Spokane business:
Anchored NW Candle Company: A husband and wife team, they sought out to create as eco-friendly a candle as possible. Each Welcome home gift basket includes a cedar wood wick, 100% soy wax candle.
The Modern Women's Business Planner: Created and designed by local artist Hannah Flint, this Modern Women's Business planner is stylish and extremely useful in keeping organized!
Maid Naturally: Maid Naturally makes cleaning products that are powerful cleaners and use all natural ingredients. Each Welcome Home gift basket includes a Maid Naturally All Purpose Cleaner and a Dish Soap.
Give Us a Sign: Nielle Gurlov is the talented owner of Give Us a Sign. She engraves the bamboo cutting board included in each Welcome Home gift basket.
Ink and Embers: Haley Roberts, the owner and artist, creates beautiful signs, home decor, and accessories using wood burning and calligraphy. She has created a “home” sign that’s included in each Welcome Home gift basket.
Art Chowder Magazine: Art Chowder is more than just a magazine, it’s a community of enthusiasts, brought together to showcase the spectacular arts talent of the Pacific Northwest. Each Welcome Home gift basket features a recent issue of the magazine.
This gift is a warm and heartfelt gift for anyone, but especially for those who have recently moved to the area or bought a new home.
Each of the local Spokane business represented in this gift basket adds a unique touch to this gift.
