Housewarming gifts should fit the style of the recipients while also being useful in the new home. For new homeowners with an Irish heritage or a particular fascination with Irish culture, a personalised Irish blessing can be the perfect fit. An Irish blessing can either include the lyrics to a popular folk song called "Irish Blessing," or simple Gaelic words that offer a blessing.

A doormat, which greets guests coming to a new home, is a perfect housewarming gift. Several different companies offer Irish Blessing personalised doormats, including Personalized Gifts For You Now.com. The mats include the phrase "Cead Mile Failte" which is Gaelic for "one hundred thousand welcomes" and is a traditional Irish blessing. The family name is written under the Gaelic words. Most of the doormats available commercially also feature green clovers around the edge. This present can be created at home with a blank doormat, stencils and paint.
A green canvas with the Irish blessing, "May your home be filled with laughter, May your pockets be filled with gold, And may you have all the happiness your Irish heart can hold!" and a family name can be a great addition to a new home. The saying is more recent than the lyrics to the "Irish Blessing" or the Gaelic words from Section 2, but it's quickly becoming a favourite among Irish families. You can purchase the canvas from Personalized Gifts For You Now.com or create your own with a store bought canvas and paint.
