Souvenirs for the topping-out ceremony - you are sure to be right

If you are invited to a topping-out ceremony, you should also bring a small present as an invited guest. Which souvenirs are suitable for finding creative gifts and you can read more about them in this article.

Find the right gift

Everyone invited to the topping-out ceremony should generally also bring a small present for the host. This does not apply to anyone who worked on the house or who actively helped.

The builder is supposed to pay the craftsmen, and with the helpers it is at least assumed that they will also be somehow rewarded by the landlord - in an indirect way. For all other guests who did not help, it is a good idea to bring a small present.

Creative gifts are very much in demand here - but they should also be somehow useful for the building owner as future landlord, garden owner or homeowner. There are also all kinds of lucky charms for the house.

The value of the gift is rather secondary here - but it should be appropriate to the close relationship with the host. You will certainly give your own relatives a more valuable gift than a more distant friend.

In general, however, it is less the monetary value that counts here than how well a gift actually fits and how creatively and thoughtfully it has been chosen. That is always the most fun.

Creative ideas

  • the brick, with vouchers from hardware stores, etc. peppered
  • the so-called "witch's broom", which is supposed to keep mischief away from the house, or a horseshoe, nicely packaged
  • the first garden gnome

Better not to give money

Even if builders almost always have a pretty good use of cash - that is what building a house brings with it - you should rather refrain from doing so. Money is widely regarded, especially on this occasion, as a rather inappropriate and unimaginative gift.

Rather, think of useful and practical things that may be needed around the house in the future. That is sure to be more popular.

Tips & Tricks For a really creative gift, always think of the unique and the special - on the respective house, or perhaps on the client himself. Does he have a stomachache after this construction period? Or there was no time left for cycling trips with the family? So you will surely come up with a well-fitting and really creative gift.
