There are so many reasons to want to bless a house. Perhaps your child has gotten their first home, or maybe your friends have moved into a new place. There are traditional gifts for a house blessing.
Here is a list of conventional gifts, Bread, Olive oil, Honey, Houseplant, Knife, Rice, Wood, Salt, Coin, Pineapple, Sugar, Broom, Candle. Of course, you want to find an exciting way to give one of these traditional presents. As a Christian, you also want to find a way to bring our faith into something you want to give as a present.
Here are a few Christian themed House Blessing Gift ideas below:
Bless the Food Before Us - Cutting Board by Jennifer Craft Corner
One of the things that I use every day when I make supper is a glass cutting board. Glass is a good cutting board because you can cut chicken on it. This cutting board has a prayer written on it. “Bless the Food before us, the family beside us, and the Love between us, Amen.
I would add a knife set to this gift, so it has the traditional knife present. You can’t use a knife without a good cutting board.
God Bless Our Home Soap Dispenser by DEXSA-THE GIVING COMPANY
One of the traditional gifts includes olive oil and pineapple. I would suggest putting together a small basket of groceries that would consist of these traditional presents. I would add to the basket this soup dispenser.
This soap dispenser could be used in the kitchen or the guest bathroom. Having an excellent soap dispenser is one of those small things that makes a big difference in a room. There are a few things that take a space and turn that room into a home. This soap dispenser is one of those things.
Blessings Jar by GIFT
I have a friend who keeps a blessing jar. Every time anything special happens to anyone in the family, they write it on paper and put it into this jar. This could be as small as getting the parking space right by the door during a cold, snowy day. Perhaps you got a raise, or one of your children got their first job. We have so many blessings throughout the year, both small and big that we can forget them.
My friend’s tradition is to open the blessing jar on New Year’s Eve and read the notes together as a family.
Jeremiah 29:11 KJV Bible Verse Canvas by Christian Walls
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
If you want to give something that will incredibly impact your loved one, this enormous piece of artwork is a perfect choice. In our home, we have a Bible verse in every room. I believe it is essential to keep the Bible in front of our eyes and the eyes of our children. Help your loved one start this tradition by getting a sizeable scriptural artwork for their first home.
God has a plan for us and our loved ones. Sometimes we need to be reminded of that. Put this reminder on your loved one’s wall.
Christian Cushion Cover by Brand: Honch
I love couch cushions. Each Christmas, I put out my unique Christmas cushions. These cushions are black and white so that they will match any room. I love the sayings. Jesus is my savior; keep calm and follow Jesus; Jesus loves this hot mess and bow down at the feet of Christ.
Bless This Home, Cutting Board by P GRAHAM DUNN INC
This is another cutting board. This is a wood cutting board and would look beautiful as a serving platter. This artwork gives the cutting board a stunning look. I love making bread; I would bring this with a fresh homemade loaf of bread.
As for My House and We Will Serve the Lord wall art by Christian Walls.
If someone you love has their first home and you want to bless them, this is the perfect gift. You can help the person you care about making a bold statement.
Making this statement, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord,” comes from a Bible story where Joshua told people to make a choice which they were going to serve. There would be no halfway here. Either you serve God, or you do the gods of the world.
Taking this stand for your family is crucial today. Help your child or your friend make this bold statement.
Personalized, Serving Board and Bowl Set, by P GRAHAM DUNN INC ENGRAVABLE
Serve One Another in Love. Galatians 5:14
Our family has a weekly Bible study we host in our home. I would love this serving board! Since the board is made of wood, it counts as a traditional house blessing gift. Every time I visit a friend or family member that has a new home, I always bring food. The day you are moving in, you can’t make supper. Having someone come to your home with food for the family is the perfect gift. Bringing food with a new serving dish is ideal for upgrading your kind gesture into a blessing.
This present can be customized with the name of the family. That might be my favorite part of this idea.
Personalized, Creamer & Sugar Bowl Set, by P GRAHAM DUNN INC ENGRAVABLES
Gather together with grateful Hearts.
Here is another idea that can be customized. One of the traditional things to bring is Sugar. Imagine coming to a home on moving day with coffee, and this personalized creamer and sugar bowl set, with cream and sugar. Set up an area for everyone to come and get coffee throughout the day as they are helping with moving. What a kind and thoughtful idea!
This is an excellent idea if you have a friend or family member who loves tea or coffee. Let them know you can’t wait to revisit them soon.
Pitcher, Whoever Believes in Me Will Never Be Thirsty by GIFT
Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
My favorite gift I received for our new home was a beautiful Pitcher. For years I used it as a decoration. It wasn’t until years later that I started to use it as an actual pitcher. I don’t know why I didn’t realize I should use it for its purpose.
I use it now when we have company, especially for our weekly Bible study. After you set up a beautiful table with dishes and serving trays, you don’t want to put a juice or pop container on the table. Having a beautiful pitcher is the perfect addition.
Come As You Are | Doormat by Scripture Bella
This might be my new favorite doormat. I have been looking for a doormat for my home, and I love this. I want people to know they are welcome in my house as they are. This is the invite that God has for us. Come as you are.
This is an excellent idea for someone who has a new home. Nothing changes a house to a home like a doormat.
Ceramic Religious Christian Gift Drink Coasters, By The Holiday Aisle®
Let all you do be done in love. I Corinthians 16:14
One of the things I realized I needed when I got my first home was coasters. It was an unfortunate water stain on my new coffee table that alerted me to this necessity. I was in college when I got my first home, and the first time I hosted a Super Bowl party, I ended up with circle stains on my coffee table. All the years of my parents and grandparents being picky about using a coaster suddenly made sense.
Coasters are a way to add fun to the room. I like to find coasters with excellent design. This is a good design, and the verse is a good reminder.
Faith black & white tiered tray! By MelDenver
Here is a way to give many gifts in one. This is a great group gift. You can put many traditional things such as wood, plants, candles, or olive oil on this gift.
If someone in your church family has a new or first home, this is a way for your Bible study group to give a group present.
Someone you care about has a new or even their first home. You are excited for them. Maybe you are attending a home blessing event, or you are arriving on the day of the move-in. Whatever the reason is, make this moment special. And remind them no matter what they do in their new home, they can use the house to bless others.
