Housewarming Gift Ideas for Someone Moving to Colorado
When someone new moves into the neighborhood it's always a good idea to give them a housewarming gift and get things off on the right foot. That's especially true in Colorado where so many people move here every year from other places to revel in the fresh air, big sky, soaring mountains and laid-back lifestyle. But just what kind of Colorado souvenirs make the perfect housewarming gift? To a certain extent, it depends on the type of person you're buying for.
General Interest Gifts
- Moving is incredibly stressful. With that in mind, there are a number of world-class day spas in the foothills of the Rockies. Give your new neighbor a gift certificate to one of these spas as a housewarming gift. It's one they won't forget.
- If one or more of the folks moving in are sports fans why not provide them with tickets to see the Avalanche, Rockies, Nuggets or Broncos? It'll be a great introduction for them to the Denver sports scene and will go a long way toward making them feel more at home.
- What about a hot air balloon ride? Now that's a great way to introduce newcomers to the breathtaking landscape. We guarantee you no one is expecting that. Especially if they come from the Northeast where hot air ballooning is as rare as parking spaces in New York City.

Why So Many People are Moving to Colorado
Housewarming gifts are big in this part of the country because, well, because so many people are moving to this part of the country. Consider that the population of the state has increased 15% between 2010 and 2020. Meanwhile, California's population actually decreased in 2020 for the first time since statistics started being kept more than a century ago. People move to the Rocky Mountain state for a number of reasons, including:
- Outstanding economic growth - Whether you want to open a business selling wholesale Colorado souvenirs or you're looking for a great job, Colorado is the place to be. Nearly every sector of the economy is expanding faster than the national average.
- It's an outdoor lover's paradise - Most people who move to Colorado are outdoor types in search of a place to live where they can indulge their inner rock climber, mountain biker, skier, snowboarder, paraglider etc, etc. Few states can boast the sheer number and quality of outdoor activities Colorado can.
- Weed - No sense in beating around the bush about it. Since recreational marijuana use was legalized in Colorado in 2012 a lot of cannabis fans have moved here to enjoy life without the fear of being busted every time they spark up their bong.
- Location, location, location - The geographic center of the lower 48 states is just a couple of hundred miles away in neighboring Kansas. Meaning that if you travel on business or you just love to travel, Colorado's central location means everything is within a few hours by air.
- It's also a sports lover's paradise - Denver is host to the Denver Nuggets of the NBA, the 2007 NL Champion Colorado Rockies, the 2-time Stanley Cup Champion Colorado Avalanche and the 3-time Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos.
