What makes a good housewarming gift? A mixture of things they want AND need!
This fun DIY farmhouse themed housewarming gift was put together easily with a short trip to the store and 10 minutes of my time. It includes items that follow the oh so popular farmhouse decor theme plus one thing that we all need but almost never have… a carbon monoxide alarm!

To me, one of the best things you can do when you are putting together a housewarming basket is to use a container that they can reuse in their home! I love baskets/containers of any kind that follow my decor so pick one up that is cute and reusable.
From there, you can include pretty much anything in a housewarming basket. I like to include things like kitchen tools, decor, cleaning products, candles, and you can even put a gift card in there! Everything in this basket came from Walmart except for the sign which came from Amazon, but I did see many farmhouse inspired signs like this one at Walmart while I was there.
This gift basket would also make a really cute closing gift for realtors to give out to their clients.
To make the basket look more presentable I bought some packaged Spanish moss & some fake eucalyptus branches. Those items just really bring the look of the basket together instead of it looking like you just threw a bunch of items into a bucket.
I included a First Alert 10 Year Sealed Battery Carbon Monoxide Alarm in the basket for a few reasons. One of them being that it is very common to have fire alarms already installed when you move into a home, but I have never once had a carbon monoxide alarm in a home that I have moved into. It is something that a lot of families don’t think about buying, but is something everyone should have to help keep their family safe!
Why Every Family Should Own a Carbon Monoxide Alarm
Carbon monoxide is known as the “silent killer” for a reason. It is invisible and odorless and there is no way to detect it without an alarm. I love the First Alert 10 Year Sealed Battery Carbon Monoxide Alarm specifically for a few reasons:
- It can be mounted to a wall, but it also can sit on a shelf (so no installation required, yay!). We have one and I literally took it out of the package, tested the alarm, and placed it on a shelf and that was it.
- It is sleek looking and has a temperature display on the front.
- It will also display levels of carbon monoxide on the display when they are detected.
- The battery lasts 10 YEARS.
Every year, carbon monoxide takes the lives of over 400 people and is the number one cause of accidental poisonings in the US. Half of these deaths occur November- February. So, get out there and get yourself and your loved ones a carbon monoxide alarm, from Amazon this holiday season so that everyone can stay safe and protected.
