How about a nice welcome mat. I know its not something that she will keep forever and ever, but it will last many years! And its appropriate as a housewarming gift and useful.

And depending on how recently she moved, maybe a prepared dinner because with the chaos of unpacking which can take awhile its nice to not have to dig through boxes and  make a mess to get dinner.

How about a door knocker, door #, door last name thingie?

We’re moving into our new house in a couple months are those are things I have thought about!

@regberadaisy: Great idea. I’ve purchased nice metal house plates with the owner’s name and house number for presents before, and they always go over well. It makes it all very official!

What about gardening tools? Thats not usually stuff you put on a registry, but it will come in handy keeping up with the lawn.

@AB Bride:

You’ll be surprised how many older houses don’t already have house #s! 🙂 The house we’re purchasing has house #s as well but I’m looking into new ones that match our style more. The ones on there are very typical classic Lowes ones. I want a more modern aluminum finish #s.

And I know some people just like the look of a engraved door knocker on their front door. Not my personal taste but some people just do. 🙂

@pinky44:

Thanks! we’re moving into our new house in a couple months so these are things I’ve been thinking about! 🙂

@AB Bride:  I don’t know if you are a gift card person but once my husband and I bought our house ALL we wanted was gift cards to Home Depot or Lowes.  They came in SO handy for little home improvement things we wanted to do to make the place ours.

Gift cards to home improvement stores are super handy!  I loved getting them after we got into our home.  You could also get a little something cute to go along with it if you don’t like that idea of just a gift card.

A cute idea my mom has done for housewarming giifts a few times, is a silver clover for above the front door. You can get them at Irish gift shops. I know this wouldn’t go over for everyone, (we’re from the southside of Chicago, lots ‘o Irish in these parts!), but if your, or BIL’s family, is Irish it’s a cute idea. It’s supposed to bring good luck to the home.

It looks like this, except I’ve always seen them in silver.
