Top 5 Housewarming Gifts

When looking for a great housewarming gift, it can be tricky and easy to overthink. Especially when you’re a guest welcoming new residents, it can be tempting to reach for things that are too much or impractical. Thankfully, there are five simple, foolproof options to help take the mystery out of gift-giving.

  • Candles

Candles are a favorite for many. After all, who wouldn’t want a lovely scent for that perfect ambiance? Candles are a fresh way to bring that homey feeling for anyone to enjoy. When shopping for a great housewarming candle, be sure to look for a light scent. Something like a fresh sea breeze or newly washed linens are great for making the environment feel crisp and clean.

  • Drinking Glasses

Whether it’s a whiskey tumbler or champagne flute, a new glass for a friend’s favorite refreshment can be a great housewarming gift. It could also be a coffee mug or teacup, depending on what they drink. This is a fun way to let someone know you’re thinking of them!

  • Anything Personalized

When in doubt, something personalized may do the trick when aiming for a great housewarming gift. If you know the person is in need of decorations, personalized wall hangings that are stylish and minimalistic may be a good option. This is just one example as there so many ideas for personalized pieces out there!

  • Wine or Spirits

A festive drink is always great for the occasion of settling into a new home. A lovely pinot or white wine is a perfect complement to many dinner dishes. If the person you know isn’t one for alcohol, try a nice apple cider, ginger beer, or sparkling grape juice. It doesn’t have to be alcoholic to be fancy!

  • Flowers

Last but not least, flowers are a classic housewarming gift. This varies depending on the seasons. For summer, bright daisies or sunflowers will do well. For the later seasons, roses or deep orange shades of flowers are lovely. The good thing about flowers is that they don’t last forever, so it won’t add to a new homeowner’s clutter!

When it comes to housewarming gifts, it’s best to keep the options simple, with the other person in mind. Try any of these options for a fresh, welcome feel. The idea is to add to the celebration, not the clutter. It’s likely that the new homeowner won’t want more to sift through, which is why we’ve picked these categories for a suggestion. What’s your favorite housewarming gift?
