5 Excellent Housewarming Gift Ideas


Shopping for a housewarming gift might seem like an easy task on the surface, but a gift giver actually has to consider a lot of factors in order to find a gift that the new house occupant will appreciate. The gift should be something that the receiver doesn’t have yet, but it should also be something that fits the personality of the receiver. At the same time, it should also be practical and should go well with the style of the new home.

To help you come up with an appropriate gift, here are some ideas that any new leaser or homeowner will love to have.

1.       Microfiber mops and towels. New homeowners never seem to have enough cleaning materials when they move into their new home. Cleaning cloths and implements usually aren’t high-priority items, and they can sometimes get lost or get left behind during the moving process. Microfiber mops and towels are perfect housewarming gifts due to their versatility and efficiency as cleaning materials. Made up of fine, microscopic fibers, these mops and towels are designed to pick up dust, grime, and particles on surfaces without needing the help of soap or detergent. The recipient can immediately put these gifts to good use after the housewarming party.

2.       Ready-to-eat food or microwaveable meals. There might be an abundance of food at the housewarming party at the moment, but you can be sure that your host will be too busy cleaning up after the event to even cook and eat. High quality, ready-to-eat food items might not seem like memorable gifts, but they go a long way in helping your hosts resume their normal lifestyle after the big move and house party are both over. Make sure to spring for the good and pricey stuff, though — hardly anyone will really appreciate being gifted packs of instant ramen on their housewarming!

3.       Scented candles. Staying in a new home requires a lot of adjustments on the part of the homeowner, including their sense of smell. A newly furnished home with its new furniture, furnishing, and coat of paint, can be an assault on the senses. You can help lighten things up and make the new place homier with a thoughtful basket of scented candles. Make sure to pick mild scents; while you want to help mask that newly furnished smell, you also don’t want to introduce a powerful scent that can clash with the existing smell.

4.       Wall decors and picture frames. Picture frames and wall decors may seem like awful gifts when you were younger, but owning a new home can change that perspective. These gifts help the homeowner put the finishing touches on their new home and encourage them to create new memories and take photos that they can frame. If you’re going with this gift, it’s best to splurge — the difference between a cheap frame and a high quality one can be pretty obvious. Also, be sure to check the style of the house beforehand to ensure that the frames and wall decors go well with the theme or style preferred by your hosts.  

5.       Power tools. The house may already be a done deal, but your housewarming party hosts may feel like adding a few personal touches to the property every now and then. If the receiver is a DIY enthusiast, brand new power tools are gifts that will truly leave a good impression. To make sure that the splurge is worth it, test the tool out before handing it over to its new owner. You should also make sure to include the warranty card in the package, just in case something goes wrong and they have to return it to the vendor for repairs.


These 5 gifts will be immediately put to good use after the party, and someone who’s changing addresses will definitely appreciate any gift that will make the transition easier. Which of these best fits the personality of the person you are giving it to?
