Traditional Housewarming Gift Baskets 

Welcoming new neighbors with a housewarming gift is a universal tradition that dates back to ancient times. And while there are slight variations on and additions to the theme, the heart of the tradition consists of these symbolic gifts:

  • bread to ward off hunger
  • salt to guarantee flavor in life
  • wine to bring good cheer to the new home

These symbolic gifts are a beautiful foundation for your housewarming gift basket. Now add some flair to these simple treasures with a little help from MacKenzie-Childs.
