Dear Jane, I need housewarming gift ideas!
My friends recently moved into a new home with their family. They relocated from the city after Covid, and are now happily enjoying a quieter suburban life in Maine.
I want to get them a housewarming gift, but I know that they are really stressed from moving. I want to get them something they might not get for themselves. I also want to make sure that I am not adding to their clutter with my gift!
Do you have any ideas?! TIA!
I think a small something to brighten and cozy up their new space, and maybe something to take the edge off of the stress and anxiety of moving would be the perfect housewarming gift!”
Dear Clutter Adverse,
It is so kind of you to put so much thought and care into a gift for your friends. They are lucky to have you – gift or no gift! With that in mind, I think Betoken has all the gift giving ideas you need to help your friends brighten and cozy up their new space and make moving a breeze!
Moving is one of the most stressful things you can do as an adult. This is especially true when coupled with new jobs and raising a family. I love Betoken’s Hello Mellow capsules which contain Broad Spectrum Hemp extract and whole plant botanicals from Holy Basil, Skullcap and Lemon Balm. Allow your friends to forget stress and focus on what matters: making beautiful memories with their family in their new home.
Another fun way to welcome your friends to their new town/zip code is with Betoken’s custom beaded bracelets! Get it customized with the name of their town, street, area code, zip code, or whatever else makes you think of them and them think of home.
I love these Denik journals available on the Betoken site. Journaling is a great way to manage stress, and they also look beautiful on your nightstand or coffee table!
If you’re in the Portland, Maine area, you can also pick up one of Betoken’s Near and Native x Betoken candles, which come in 2 scents: Wake Me Up (lilac and mandarin) or Calm Me Down (sea salt and citrus). These are available only in store.

Dear Jane, I am officially a meme. You know the ones about dodging Covid? Somehow, despite numerous close encounters and look-a-like symptoms, I haven't had Covid yet. I know so many people that have, I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority in my friend group. Of...
Dear Jane, As I coast well into my 30's, my days of hard charging and partying on the weekends are behind me. Of course I know this makes sense, and I couldn't party now even if I wanted to (the multi-day hangovers kill me!) but I am kind of at a loss as to what to...
Dear Jane, I'm trying not to bite off more than I can chew this New Year. I want to start a new wellness routine, but I don't want to set myself up for failure. For the past few years I have made New Years Resolutions, but I only find myself able to stick to them for...
