Finally moving in into your own four walls! Traditionally, people give salt and bread to mark the occasion and that’s the heart of this moving in present idea. With a little creativity, you can make these classic gifts into a brilliant housewarming gift with a house made from a folding rule. It’s also great for monetary gifts!
Housewarming party! When I think about what I’ve gotten as a moving in present, so far my friends have always stuck to the classic: “Bread and salt, God bless!” This traditional housewarming gift is more of a congratulation and symbolically expresses the wish that the newly-born residents may be blessed with prosperity, settledness and community, and be protected from evil spirits. A beautiful custom that fits like a door on hinges, especially now in Corona times. I would like to present this classic in a particularly beautiful way with a house made from a folding rule. You can download the templates for doors and windows from the material list and simply print them out.
I made my moving in present idea for a young family of four with the idea that the children could still play with it. For each family member, I draped a bun in a personalised bamboo boat that sails into its harbour in front of the house. You can also attach super folded notes to the folding rule house.
