Best Housewarming Gifts Ideas

housewarming gifts

One of your loved ones invites you to his/ her housewarming party? Great! Now you need to find something special for new owners. The question is - what gifts do people actually like? To inspire you, here are a few of our favourite gifts that would be PERFECT for any homeowner!

An important thing to remember is that you aren’t shopping for yourself. Always think about the new homeowner's style and whether they prefer something more classic. Don't be scared to go vintage if you select something with a more classic style.  You might be able to locate something that perfectly suits their tastes.

1. Coffee or coffee accessories

Your friends are coffee lovers and they start every morning with this drink? The first thing they do when traveling abroad is finding a local coffee shop and buy some beans as their best souvenir? For you, this is very good news. Look for an unusual type of coffee - one they haven't tried yet. You will thus offer them a new experience, which could stay with them for a long time.

Worried that the taste won't match their preferences? Something else, also related to coffee, is a good alternative. Decorative spoons, special coffee cups, or an induction coffee maker - for the real lover.

You can shop at Amazon!

2. Scented Candle

Not sure what style your friends have decorated their homes in? In this case, vases, cups and other decorations will not do. They may not match the interior decoration. There is a good solution: scented candles.

You can choose a large candle in a glass jar. You can also choose a set of small candles, which will brighten up your friends' evenings. These products are available for sale on Amazon and Etsy.

A housewarming gift for a wine lover

Housewarming hosts love wine. You can offer them a bottle of their favorite drink. Consider it as an addition to the main gift - for example, accessories for serving wine or snacks.

3. Custom engraved glasses

Beautifully etched wine glasses not only make very practical housewarming gifts but also make a great keepsake from the event. You can order an engraving of the date of the party or the name of the host. If you don't want the text to be too visible, ask the engraver to place it on the bottom of the glass. It is a subtle and elegant decoration. You can order these products here!

4. Cheeseboard

You know that hosts already have wine glasses, or someone else is buying them as a housewarming gift? Choose other accessories, for example, a cheeseboard. Cheese is a classic wine-based appetizer, which is why your hosts should greatly appreciate such a gift. For an elegant look, have the top engraved. You can shop here!

Housewarming gifts for plant lovers

A bouquet of flowers is a great gift for a hostess, whatever the occasion. Looking for a housewarming suggestion and decided you needed a better idea? Replace the traditional flowers with another gift - also vegetable.

7. Potted plants or bonsai

If your friends love plants, a new plant for their house or apartment could be your housewarming gift. Don't forget to find a potted plant they don't already own so they can grow their collection.

A bonsai is an interesting idea - it is believed to bring good luck to its owner. You can easily find such plants in a large flower shop. They come in different sizes - cheaper small trees or larger, more expensive specimens. You can shop here!
