Martha Stewart’s Housewarming Bucket is all over pinterest, but there wasn’t a list included. While not as cute as Martha’s galvanized bucket, I chose items based on the new (first time) home owner’s personality and needs.

Things included in my housewarming bucket basket:

  • Pinesol
  • Scrubbing Bibbles
  • Clorox wipes
  • Goo Gone
  • Magic Erasers
  • Pledge
  • scrubbing sponges
  • dishwasher detergent
  • trash bags
  • duct tape
  • scented jar candle
  • fly swatters
  • extension cord
  • hammer
  • nails
  • measuring tape
  • furniture pads
  • level
  • lighter
  • champagne – a new house is something to be celebrated!

I used Stampin’ Up stamps to make a card with the new address. Celebrate stamp is in background in bronze, and the number stamps are on top in black.

I tied it all together with the Celebrate! ribbon from the Dollar Tree, with the card hanging from the ribbon.

Other things to include in a house warming or move in gift include:

  • Hardware store gift card
  • pizza delivery gift card
  • Solo cups (I brought Dixie cups for the champagne)
  • paper plates
  • plastic utensils
  • watering can
  • paint brush
  • paint thinner
  • painter’s tape
  • light bulbs
  • broom or Swiffer
  • small potted plant
  • liquid dish detergent
  • batteries
  • paper towels
  • toilet paper
  • shower curtain liner
