Why Something Knitted is the Perfect Housewarming Gift for Any Home

Your coolest friends have a cool new home. Now you’re left with the unenviable task of picking out a housewarming gift for them.

They claim that they’re very “specific” when it comes to their home furnishings. But that’s just a code word for “impossible to shop for.” So, don’t buy them anything. Knit them something!

Here’s a little secret that expensive home furnishing stores don’t want you to know: Knitted items belong in any home. Knitted items never fail to add a bit of rugged hominess that is always welcome and appreciated.

It’s easy and affordable. Simply go find your favorite brand of yarn online right now and start creating something that they will treasure forever.

Blankets and Quilts

The classic knitted blankets loved for its versatility. Even if the homeowner’s bedroom décor is too curated for this look, your blanket will quickly find a home in the guest bedroom or on their most comfortable couch. Your gift will soon be a crucial part of their movie nights or cozying up with a good book.

You can feel a tremendous amount of pride in knowing that your work will be cherished and has helped their house feel like a home.

Baby Clothes

Do they have a little bundle of joy, or one on the way? Help welcome a new life into the world by loading the parents up with adorable knitted hats, booties and blankets.

The baby will appreciate the blanket even more. The blanky quite often becomes their “lovey” and they grow incredibly attached to something you made.

That’s something you can’t get from Williams Sonoma.

Cozies for Their Electronics

Help them give their modern electronics some old-world charm and warmth.

You can create some really fantastic tablet sleeves or remote control holders that are as practical as they are adorable. 

These are also wonderful holiday gifts for kids and teenagers.

Knit Potholders

Mothers used to say, “You can never have too many potholders.” And who are we to argue.

These designs are simple and easy to do. You can even throw in some stylish touches like adding leather handles. Bonus points for you if you can find out the color scheme in their kitchen and match your yarn to be the perfect accent color.

Even if they don’t cook, they will appreciate this gift as a homey touch for their kitchen.

Something For Their Pets

If the house is also going to be home to a spoiled pooch or kitty, you can bet that the owners will love a homemade pet bed or knitted pet nest.

People always have a soft spot for their pets. So, make them something soft that owners can’t buy in a store.

Homemade presents are almost always the most beloved. If you’re handy with a set of needles, don’t waste your time looking for something online or at the mall. 

Make your “specific” friends something special. A piece of you will be in their homes and in their hearts for years to come.
