CUTE and SIMPLE Holiday "House Warming" Gift idea on { }

You guys know how much I LOVE cute and inexpensive Gift ideas, right?! If not, just scroll back through the last month and you’d see that I’ve been sharing loads of ideasย on the site to make sure that you had TONS of inspiration this holiday season.

Today’s post is no different. I’m sharing a super cute and simple Holiday “House Warming”ย Gift using some of my favorite Better Homes and Gardens products at Walmart. Now, it’s not really a “house warming” gift for those that just moved into a new place, but it’s more of a gift for anyone that loves the smell of the holidays using some wax warmers. Get it? House warming? It’s a play on words. I know, just silly, but I thought it was fitting at the time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I’m trying to come up with gift ideas for others around Christmas time, I often think about the things I like to receive and use. Usually, my favorite gifts are the ones I already buy myself because that means I obviously like them. These Wax Warmers are my favorite, and the holiday ones are just so darn cute. Add in the scent of Vanilla Cookie Crunch, and I’d be beyond ecstatic to get these for a gift. With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to make this gift set hoping my friends are the same way and love the warmers and the scents of Christmas.ย 

If you’d like to make a gift like this too, here is what you’ll need:


–ย Better Homes and Gardens Plug-In Warmerย – $10

–ย Better Homes and Gardens Full-Size Wax Warmer,ย (I bought the Glow Pattern)ย –ย Range from $12-$15

–ย Vanilla Cookie Crunch (small)ย – $2ORย Vanilla Cookie Crunch (Value Pack)ย – $4

–ย Better Homes and Gardens Small Galvanized Binย – $7.47

– Paper Grass

– Tulle/Ribbon

– Ornaments for fillers

– Vinyl Dots (optional)





1. Begin by gathering your supplies. The warmers are available in STORE and also online. Theย Better Homes and Gardens Full-Size Wax Warmerย are $15 and the Plug-in Warmers are $10.

They have a HUGE varierty of Wax Cubes that range from $2 – $4. This Vanilla Cookie Crunch is one of my favorites. It smells like you’ve been in the kitchen baking all day, which reminds me of Christmas time.


2. Then I added some filler grass paper to the bin so that the gifts sat up higher.


3. I filled the basket with my goodies along with some inexpensive ornaments to fill the spaces and make it look more festive.


4. To top it off I added some vinyl Polka Dots which make it look even more festive. What’s great is they are easy to remove so the recipient can keep them on or take them off depening on what they like. I then tied on some glitter-y red tulle just for that extra holiday touch.

I love how it turned out.


I think my mom or sisters would love it.

And I know my daughter’s teacher would love getting this too!!

I love giving!! It’s so hard for me to keep a secret when you find that perfect gift for someone! The part I have started to love the most is trying to craft/create something unique and personalized for those MANY special someone’s in our life from Teachers and Co-workers to Family. Personalization is a great way to make gifts feel that much more meaningful. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m loving my Cameo Silhouette…it’s the perfect way to put a personalized touch on a fairly inexpensive gift when you want to give something to all those that mean so much to you! ๐Ÿ™‚ My boys daycare alone has 13 FANTASTIC ladies that love them and every year I wish I could give them each the world! ๐Ÿ™‚

The best thing about the holidays are the excited looks on the grandkids faces when the decorations are finally up and the outside is decorated and the house is all lit up. It’s always so magical. The other most wonderful thing about the holidays are the smells of cookies baking, candy being made and the love on the faces of my family. I guess that’s 3 favorite things!

I love seeing the look on my son’s face when he gets to stack presents santa left. He loves making sure everyone has a stack

The spirit of Christmas always makes me think of others before myself. I am afraid that throughout the year sometimes I let that slip away but Christmas always makes me thankful for what I have and to think of those who are less fortunate.

Enjoying the holidays with my family is the best part!


The holidays are the one time of year where people in general are actually nice to one another. It’s like there is something in the air, like the whole world is new and bright and even when bad things happen, we can keep on because there are people surrounding us to help – family, friends and even perfect strangers.


I love the music, singing, and glitter of Christmas tree lights.

I love that friends and family seem to draw closer together and express their love and appreciation for each other. It’s not that we take each other for granted during the year but it is so easy to get busy and involved in the day-to-day and forget to say how thankful we are for those we care about. The very essence of Christmas provides us with the perfect opportunity to focus on those we love most.

Amy S.

What I love most about the Holidays is spending time with my family, stuffing our bellies with homemade favorite dishes, while talking about how we are doing.

So yes, that is what I love about Holidays!!

    I look forward to Christmas every year. In fact it is the highlight every year for me and mine. There is something so comforting about the Christmas tree. There warmth that it generates somehow affects me in the best way possible, the smells, the music and the family. I just can not say enough about the peace it brings to me. Seeing my children as they are raising their children just blows me away. They were all here this year…warm and fuzzy!

my husband and i are not holiday people but we enjoy having the day (or two) off work to spend together. since it is just the two of us, we just go to a movie and hang out and enjoy each other and the relief of being off work.

Lisa Stover

I love all of the decorations and scents of Christmas.

Roya Oustalet

My favorite thing about the holidays is definitely FOOD, FAMILY, & FRIENDS!!!


What I most love about the holidays is the sense that you get to step out of reality for a few precious days, or even weeks. Something about the holidays makes me forget about adulthood; work, age, responsibilities. Suddenly, I’m a kid again and I’m warmed by the sense of family and gift-giving. I almost feel like it’s a clean slate and everyone is entitled to feel like they are part of a family and the responsibilities of the every day do not seem so pressing. Truly a magical time of year!


Spending time with family!


Getting to spend time with family near and far, seeing all the homes in the neighborhood light up with beautiful Christmas lights and decor. But honestly, my favorite is getting to try out new recipes, especially the dessert!!! YUM! ๐Ÿ™‚

Jenny c

My favorite thing about the holidays is the baking and cooking! I love to make treats for the family

jules s

What I love most about the holidays is the kindness. People seem to be (for the most part) in a better mood. And then i love having all my family come to our house. Its crowded and loud, but it reminds me of our many blessings of health, safety and love.

Cindy A.

I love decorating and all the yummy treats. Thank you so much for the giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚

Monica Shadid

Mandy R

My favorite part of the holidays is decorating sugar cookies with my children.

Lauren Medrano

I love creating memories with my children. Seeing the look on their faces when we decorate, bake, and the thought that their innocent little selves put into those fun, crazy homemade cards that we send out, it’s priceless. I hope to create a fun-filled environment that they hope to pass down, as did I.


I love the time with family. And cookies – definitely cookies ๐Ÿ˜€


I’ve got to say that the thing I love the most about the holidays is staying inside wearing cozy clothes, drinking something warm and talking and laughing with loved ones ๐Ÿ™‚

Lyn M

I love being with my family and doing all the fun Christmas rituals


all the yummy things I only get to have (okay, that I only allow myself to have!) during the holidays. And family, of course. ๐Ÿ™‚

Erin Calkins

Time with family and friends, sharing holiday treats!

Darcy Hoskins

I love all the extra time spent with family! & all the lights! ๐Ÿ™‚


I love getting a fresh Christmas tree at the beginning of December and decorating it while drinking eggnog!

Ruth Anne Cox

I love the holidays because you get together with friends and family to enjoy good food have great visits with memories and traditions you have created through the years. We need to remember the reason we celebrate the season and put God back in our lives. Also remember the ones not so fortunate too at this time.


My absolute favorite part of the holiday season is the people. Everyone makes time for their friends and loved ones that they may not otherwise get to see. Christmas is the only time I get to see my sister and brother-in-law as well as my cousins. People you pass on the streets are just happier while in the “Christmas spirit”. And just in general, people take more time to stop and be happy and thankful. I love that the holidays bring this out in people across time and space.

Susan Haws

My favorite thing about the holidays is the joy I see on my children’s faces from all the fun and excitement!!!

Erika W.

I probably love the family traditions that surround the Holidays the most, especially the ones that focus on the Savior. I also loved the kindness that others show, the treats, the decorations, the happiness in my children’s faces and eyes.

The all around Christmas cheer everyone has!


I love decorating my Christmas tree!

Julie Huffaker

I love the feeling everyone has/shares during the holidays. People seem to be more giving, patient, kind, and caring. I also love the feeling in the air as the seasons change! I love everything, the snow, the fireplaces, hot chocolate, snowmen, snowball fights, and the fun everyone seems to have no matter what they’re doing!

Bridget Heiple Reich

linda walker

I love the festive atmosphere and the time I get to spend with my family!

Diane S.

I love the tradition of eating CHRISTmas Eve dinner at my sister-in-laws, then driving the short distance to my mom-in-laws house for dessert and games, hearing my mom-in-law recite the CHRISTmas story, and then we open presents from our secret santas!! Then we drive home, do the CHRISTmas pie with our daughter (tradition from my family of opening one small present in bed after drawing from the CHRISTmas pie which is an old hatbox dressed up with wrapping paper) and then CHRISTmas Day which is my family tradition which is Hollaindaise Sauce on eggs, welsh rarebit, cheese coffee cake, and roast and yorkshire pudding for dinner! And opening presents with our daughter!


I love the extra time with family.

Leslie Rodriguez

Just being able to spend more time with the ones I love and cooking for them.


Time with my family!

Amanda Milliron

I love everything about the holidays but most all of the lights and decorations!

Crystal Howarth

I love the family time and focus on Christ.


Just being together and watching the kids faces!


Such a darling gift idea…absolutely perfect! My favorite thing is being together as a family. We are all over and don’t get to see each other as much as we’d like to, so the holidays are a good week of solid family time and traditions!


I love all the Christmas movies and songs being played everywhere. I love baking with my son and watching him open gifts on Christmas morning.
