Moving into a new home is a big deal and the beginning of a new chapter in life. Maybe a close friend is leaving their family or childhood home to pursue new opportunities opened, and they’re ecstatic to be moving. Whether you’re offering a hand in their move or simply wishing them well, nothing is more thoughtful than a sweet housewarming gift. Here at Bagoy’s Florist, the best flower shop in Anchorage, we believe in selecting the perfect plant or welcoming flowers to symbolize good luck, friendship, peace, and comfort.
Warm Their Heart & Their Home
The vibrant blooms of alstroemeria serve as a great housewarming gift due to their beautiful petals and meaningful symbolism. Alstroemeria’s symbolism of friendship and support makes them an excellent gift for friends moving to a new town.
A bouquet of uplifting, yellow sunflowers brightens any room and is extremely helpful in making a house feel like a home. Additionally, sunflowers represent peace, love, and hope, making them a beautiful and thoughtful welcoming gift for family or a friend.
Jade plants are known for bringing good fortune, wealth, and good luck, making them fun houseplants for celebrating a new start. This succulent is a great way to offer a message of well wishes and is easy to care for.
Heartleaf philodendrons, also known as “sweetheart plants”, are inviting houseplants and can be used to show appreciation for a close friend or to welcome a new neighbor. With heart-shaped vibrant and glossy green leaves, heartleaf philodendrons are linked to growth, love, and abundance.
Turtle doves are liked to things like peace, love, and friendship and serve as signs of the connection between two people. It is a tradition that one turtle dove is given to a friend or loved one, and the other is kept with the understanding that they will serve as a reminder of your friendship or love. One of the more famous examples of this can be seen in the hit film Home Alone 2: Lost in New York!
While it may seem childish to some, friendship bracelets are a sign of true friends and continue to be enjoyed by people of all ages. Whether you make them yourself out of colorful yarn or purchase a more trendy pair, this is a timeless way to show your BFF that you will be friends forever with matching bracelets.
This tropical treat has served as a sign of welcome for centuries. It has its roots in a sailor’s tradition in which a pineapple would be placed on the front porch after a long voyage to signify receptiveness, friendship, and hospitality. To honor that tradition, we suggest you consider the pineapple as a housewarming gift, if not because of its history and symbolism, then at least for its taste and beauty.
Eucalyptus Scented Candle
With their sweet scent and calming effects, candles can make a great housewarming gift, especially if the recipient is stressed from moving or traveling long distances. The faint dancing light, calming aroma, and general mood induced by eucalyptus candles generate balance, stress relief, and relaxation. It’s the perfect welcoming gift for a new home!
Moving can be stressful; from the long days of moving belongings to the strange new surroundings, it can be an intimidating process. If you see a new neighbor or friend, who is stressed, think about a nice gift that could ease their worries and bolster their mood. Fresh houseplants, symbolic flowers, or welcoming gifts, Bagoy’s Florist encourages you to find something they will cherish and make their new house feel like home.
