House Warming Gift: It’s A Wonderful Life Theme

Growing up brings on lots of new experiences and celebrations.  You are no longer just going to someone’s birthday party once a year.  Now there are celebrations for marriage, babies, and new homes.  I am sure there are many more but I am learning as I am going.  One of the hardest gifts I have a hard time figuring out is what to get someone who just moved into a new home.

From now on I will always give this It’s A Wonderful Life themed house warming gift.

If you haven’t seen It’s A Wonderful Life yet then we can’t be friends.  Okay we can but you need to watch it.  My family watches the movie every Christmas Eve, it has gotten to the point where shush each other because everyone has their own favorite line that they say out loud during the movie.  
When my husband married the family, he thought we were ridiculous.  Let’s be honest, he still does but it is growing on him.  I think he is starting to appreciate why it is my favorite holiday tradition.

Since this movie has been such a big part of my life growing up it seems only fitting that I give people a house warming gift like the one from the movie.  
Bread, that this house may never know hunger
Salt, that life may always have flavor,
Wine, that joy and prosperity may reign forever”
~It’s A Wonderful Life

What is even better is that it is super simple to put together.  Without further ado, here is how to make it.



Read carefully because it is so easy you might miss a step!
  1. Place the basket shred in the basket.
  2. Place the bread, wine and salt nicely in the basket
  3. Print the first picture on this post onto your card and write a nice sentiment inside.
Think you can do it?  I do!

Wrap Up

I hope you enjoy giving this basket as much as I did.  And don’t forget, if you haven’t seen It’s A Wonderful Life make sure you add that to your watch list!

Does your family have a tradition or movie that means a lot to you?  What is your version of our family’s Christmas Eve tradition?

Before I let you go, make sure you take a look at these last few pictures!

  1. This is so cute Alyssa! I did this gift for my son's teacher once about a million years ago before printables. I'm not sure she got it but I thought it was adorable. Pinning and sharing on Poofing the Pillows Facebook page. 🙂

  2. Thank you, I am so glad you like it! I've thought about adding the movie to the basket but I usually just write that the quote is from a movie just in case!
