House Warming Bucket Gift

My sister in law and her husband built a home out in the country in Paradise… no, that’s what their town is called… Paradise. We went to see their new house last night and it is gorgeous… lots of land, trees, and a brand new custom home. I surprised her with a house warming gift – a Home Depot bucket filled with all kinds of new home goodies.

I spent some time going through Home Depot… literally went up and down every aisle and just started grabbing anything that I thought would come in handy for the new homeowners. My sister in law had owned a home before so I new she didn’t need the typical things like appliances or decorations. I wanted to get them things that they could put away and one day might randomly need. Here is a picture of everything I found…

I put the lid on the bottom to hold everything up and then the hose on top of that and lastly the bucket. Then I filled the bucket with all the different items.

  1. That’s excellent and so useful too. I would probably add in some of those good quality coffee bags – for when they need a break from unpacking/decorating. I love the paint chip card idea, I’ll definitely be using that!
