We agonise over many things in life. But one thing that comes on top of the list is how to give an appropriate gift for a particular occasion. Housewarming party etiquette tells us that even if the host says ‘no gifts’ on the invitation, it’s still correct etiquette to bring a gift along. So that’s a given. You must bring a gift. But what gift should you bring? Heaven forbid that you should bring along a vase and find it lined up with 20 other vases! Your heart sinks when this happens. Everyone feels great when they give a gift that stands out a little. We all love to feel special. If we know our gift is really appreciated, it means a lot. Should we give a gimmicky, fun gift idea? Or should we actually bring a gift to the housewarming that’s a long term investment - something we’ll be seeing again every time we visit?
There are so many creative ways in which to upcycle a mason jar, you can just let your imagination run wild... from snow globes to fancy candles, fairy light features to cleaning soap dispensers!
