It brings great joy to my heart when one of my family members or a friend returns from a long journey, especially one that kept us separated for some time. I believe you feel so too.

The act of welcoming someone communicates such a powerful message, the message of happiness and well-wishing. The person feels at home and knows that their absence indeed created a lacuna and their coming back means a lot. So, right here are some thoughtful welcome home gifts.
Thoughtful Welcome Home Gifts
1. Welcome Front Sign
This 3D sign should be the first thing they see once they are at that pouch. It is a very bright sign, something they’ll quickly notice.
It would be best if you had this ready before they step in. It should be the first thing they see. This sign shows how much you miss them.
2. Engraved Cutting Board
This cutting board could be on the kitchen table, have it in an undeniable place somewhere they would see when they make the regular rounds around the house. Before it officially becomes kitchenware, it is another symbolic welcome gift for whoever.
3. Welcome Box
This box is the perfect gift for an onboarding session and is best as a welcome gift for a coworker; however, it contains a ceramic coffee cup, a ballpoint pen, and a journal.
These items all seem like the perfect item for anybody, with the words “welcome to the team” it is an even more ideal gift.
4. Funny Coasters
No doubt, we all welcome her from that long exhausting trip, but she should be aware that the table shouldn’t be messed with and also be reminded that she should be considerate. It may look rude telling her this on the first day, even if you mean it as a joke, so let’s give the work to these funny coasters.
5. Welcome Home Whitewash
This is similar to the first item on this list, like the other should be the first thing they come across, and this sign does a great job of being very obvious and hard to skip.
6. Welcome Rustic Sign
One fantastic welcome gift for a best friend would be this rustic sign; what intrigues me the most about this sign is the words.
We all have to agree with this, those who come in through the backdoor are those dear to our hearts, and I believe your best friend is one of those.
7. Pillow Covers
I suppose he’ll be coming home to meet a well-arranged bed; one awesome thing to welcome him with would be a pillow, in this case. This case is made with linen, so while the write-up welcomes him, the night would be pretty comfortable for him.
8. Stone & Cork Coasters
These coasters are a bit less funny, although they still communicate how happy you are to have them at home.
9. Wood Sign
This is another excellent sign to welcome your visitors with. The beauty of this sign is that it is not for those who are arriving after a long time; it is a sign you can have even for Thanksgiving or any other family or social occasion that entails people with opposing religious and political spaces sharing the same place. This sign reminds everyone to keep everything outside and have a peaceful stay in their place.
10. Handwoven Basket
While the basket isn’t a welcome gift, it is still a great item to have alongside other “welcome” items. In this beautiful hand-woven basket, you can have some real live flowers here or just flowers, fruits, and so much more.
11. Soft Amber Candle
Besides the “welcome home” inscription on this candle, I am so much in love with the scent. The scent is quite relaxing, making it the perfect atmosphere your receiver should be in. This is one nice welcome home gift for your husband.
12. Welcome Wind Chime
Wind chimes remain one fantastic item I like. I so much enjoy sitting in my grandmother’s pouch in the cold evening and enjoying the soothing sounds they make.
With these chimes, you can make your receiver’s evening very awesome and relaxing. These wind chimes would add a layer of comfort to their stay, and they can meditate under them.
13. Chocolate Gift Box
A box of chocolate remains my go-to gift when I can’t figure out what to get someone excellent, and this box would make your “welcoming efforts” more interesting for your receiver.
When everyone is done welcoming her, she can enjoy this chocolate in her room, it would make a great welcome home gift for your wife.
14. Funny Cat Welcome Sign
If you are a cat person and know that your receiver knows this, then have this sign set up too. I also have some excellent gifts for cat lovers.
15. Gourmet Arrangement
This is similar to the box of chocolate, and it features a pack of dry nuts and dry fruits, something they chew when they are settled on. This is the ideal welcome home gift for a family.
Wrapping it up on Welcome Home Gifts
Items like a box of chocolate, a tower of dried fruits and nuts, some welcome signs, coasters, and wind chimes remain some simple yet thoughtful welcome home gifts for anyone. These gifts would help communicate how happy you are to have them at home.
