If you have a friend or close family who recently bought a home or is going to buy, then you know the struggle with trying to find the perfect housewarming gift. Spending five minutes online you can see that the options are endless. The trick is to know something special or unique about the person to know what unique gifts to get them. Finding that just-right gift can be tricky though. You want to buy something that's considerate and aesthetically pleasing, something the new homeowners will actually, truly enjoy.
It may not always be the easiest thing to do, but if you try to get something that is unique and personalized to the person receiving the gift, it really won’t matter what the gift is. It really is the thought that counts.
Here are just a few great housewarming gift ideas, that can help you start brainstorming for the perfect gift to give to that new home owning friend!
Personalized carved wooden coasters or a cutting board | This really could be great with anything. A gift personalized with the family name like “the Millers” honestly can’t go wrong with that.
Help them get their new herb garden going | Even something like a herb gardening kit. Any kind of plant makes a great housewarming gift, but if they don’t particularly have a green thumb, you could opt for the small and maintainable air plants. Perfect!
A custom house/family portraits or any art | It makes a great home gift, especially if you’re familiar with their style and what kind of art they’re into.
Classic doormat | You can personalize something like this as well, you can make it funny, or cheery, anything that encapsulates your friend or family member(s).
Custom house number plaque | again this is easier if you’re familiar with their tastes, but something modern and stylish is always popular.
Cheese boards, serving sets, cookware, barware etc. | things that are useful and practical. Things you’ll know they'll use and need!
Custom home return address stamp | Order online a custom stamp with the family name and address
Funny Kitchen towels | something cheeky, something with a bit of humour that’ll make the person smile.
Housewarming cookies | There’s nothing more touching than something homemade - when a gift is made with time and care, like bake a batch of home themed cookies!
When in doubt, a gift card | Alongside a thoughtful card, this will do the trick—it gives them exactly what they want or need after all.
