Inside: Have a DIY housewarming gift done in an instant with only these free printables and a cute pitcher.
Lately, it seems like everyone I know is buying a new home.
It’s the season in life when you settle down and establish some roots. Of course, with new homes comes a party! And with a party you’ll definitely need a fun little gift. That’s why I’ve come up with this easy and cute DIY housewarming gift idea.
This was the very first housewarming party I’ve attended so I was a little lost on exactly what a proper gift would be.
But when I sat down and thought about it, I realized I should bring some sort of gift that has a purpose. Something that you can use in your home. Something that is neutral and could blend into anyone’s home decor style.
Plus I’m definitely not a fan of cash or gift cards, especially for friends, so I had to think a little bit about this gift to meet all of my self-imposed criteria.
And then it hit me:
Everyone needs a pitcher in their home.
Yes, they may already have one, but having multiple pitchers definitely comes in handy when you have a lot of guests over at one time. Or maybe you just want to switch up the style of your pitcher every once in a while.
Either way, a pitcher equaled the perfect new home gift!
In my true fashion, I wanted to make a gift tag to go with it that was cute and made the gift feel a little more personal.
I love puns and thought about the perfect play on words. But nothing came. What I had wasn’t quite right….
So I decided to call in the expert: my older brother. He’s pretty much a walking dictionary of the most ridiculous puns you’ve ever heard of. It’s second nature to him.
And let me tell you, he did NOT disappoint! See for yourself here:

- Hole Punch
- Card Stock (I use this one in almost all my projects)
- Scissors (these are my favorite for detailed cutting)
- LaserJet printer (or bring to a copy shop; if you print a ton at home, consider this awesome printer that I use)
- Gather all your supplies.
- Print out the house tag on card stock paper.
- Cut out the tag and punch a hole for the ribbon.
- Cut the ribbon to the desired length and tie the tag onto the pitcher’s handle
