I 💛 Local Housewarming Gift Box

WIN this awesome housewarming gift box full of local goods from businesses in Red Deer.

A favorite housewarming tradition of Aaron & I’s is to bring a log of wood to our loved ones new home. Nothing to us seems more fitting to warm a new house than sitting around a backyard fire in the cool spring air. Although, I don’t think we would have many entries to win a log of wood.

Now log of wood aside, the key to a good housewarming box is a theme. And the theme of this housewarming box is the celebration and support of local businesses in Red Deer. 2020, what a year. It made me very grateful for this community I call home. And anyone who is moving to Red Deer for the first time, I hope this basket gives you a little glimpse into our community through some of the local businesses that reside here. And those who are Red Deerians already, may this basket be a celebration of all things local.

Nothing beats waking up the first morning in your new house, and pouring your first cup of coffee. So in honor of that we got the good people of Heritage Ranch to donate a bag of their fresh roasted Roosters Wood Fire & Smoke dark roast coffee beans. And what better pair to coffee than some fresh baked goods! Enjoy that first cup with a locally baked cupcake from Cakes & Doe located in downtown Red Deer.

At the end of the day when the last picture has been hung, and you have slugged through putting away the kitchen, you deserve an Albertan craft beer and a slice of pizza, right? “If the Crown Fits” compliments of Troubled Monk Brewery will be the easy and crushable beer you need to crown off your day. Equally as crushable is your choice of a pizza pie compliments of Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria.

Another great gift to include in a housewarming box is a house plant or flowers. And we got both for you in this box. Ang at Meadow Farm Florals is hooking the winner up with a mix of perennial and annual seedlings and seeds to kick your garden into gear. And Comfort Keepers Red Deer donated a $100 gift card to pick your own house plant at Calyx Floral Design.

Also included is a temper + lace wood wick candle, a beautiful glass bottled Essential by Nature linen and room spray, and a Maxwell Williams marble & ash wood charcuterie board from Auburn & Ash donated by Comfort Keepers Red Deer.

Finally, the last piece of this housewarming box is a 30% OFF discount to Budget Blinds Red Deer. Transform your home’s interior into something really special with your choice of blinds, drapes, shutters and shades. I would have loved this promo card for when we moved into our new house in 2018, and had way more windows that the 1950 bungalow house we moved out of. On top of that we moved from downtown Red Deer on 50th street to the suburban streets of Clearview Ridge where there is more house and less trees so you can see right into our house. Sorry neighbors!

To put the I 💛 Local housewarming box together – what better way than with a functional and fun Fortboxx Moving Box!

Do you have any ideas you love to do for housewarming boxes or baskets or buckets?
