It's important not to bring gifts with negative energy for a housewarming

Moving into a new home is always an exciting moment, because almost every time there is something missing to call the house a full cup. That's why guests who are invited to a housewarming party try to give something useful on this occasion.

But, as OBOZREVATEL has found out, not all of the items, even the most necessary ones, can be a good gift. Folk superstitions name at least 5 things that should be avoided as a moving house gift.

Knives, scissors and other sharp objects

Anything with a sharp cutting edge or point is popularly considered a harbinger of quarrels and scandals. Therefore, in order not to fill the new home with conflict energy, it is better to avoid such gifts.


A mirror acts as a portal to the other world. And you never know what exactly will come out of it when it is in the house. It is better to let the new residents choose such an object to their liking.

Money and wallets

An empty wallet as a gift is a symbol of poverty, and the money given as a gift is symbolically analogous to a loan. Each of these gifts will bring financial problems to the new home. A wallet can only be given as a gift if it contains some kind of bill or coin. And the bigger the better.


The symbol of time reminds us of the transience of life, which is also not the best gift when people are starting a new stage. It is better not to give a watch for any holiday.

Pearls and any items with pearls

Pearls are a symbol of tears. If you give them as a housewarming gift, they will attract crying, pain, conflicts, and troubles to your new home. Women in this house will be especially unhappy. This, in particular, can doom a girl or woman to loneliness or unhappiness in marriage.

What to do if you choose an inappropriate gift

You can cleanse the energy of an object by symbolically "selling" it. Don't be afraid to ask the person you brought the gift to for some small money - this way, the person will get rid of the negative energy that a bad gift can bring.
