The Best House Warming Gifts
It can be hard to give a gift to someone who has everything. Consider some of these for personalized touches and for fun and unique gift ideas.
Practical House Warming Gifts
1. A Year of Amazon Prime
Being a new homeowner or having your own place for the first time can mean lots of new expenses. Let them enjoy themselves by gifting a year of Amazon Prime.
Benefits of Amazon Prime:
-Stream thousands of movies on Prime Video
-Free photo storage
-Free 2 day and same day shipping on select products
-Listen to songs with Amazon music for free
2. Welcome Mat
You could be the best gifter when it comes to housewarming parties if you take a welcome mat. But not just any make sure you go for a neutral or personalized welcome mat to make the homeowner feel special and seen.
3. Charcuterie Board
These charcuterie boards are becoming so popular that you can’t go wrong. Not only do they come with a great cheese board, most come with little utensils that the new homeowner can use for multiple foods.
Don’t just give a set of plain old cups, no no. Do it right and gift them a luxury set of glassware that they can use to entertain their guest for years to come.
5. Keurig Coffee Machine
Find out if your homeowner is a coffee drinker? Chances are they could go for saving money right now, give them the gift of having fine coffee at home with a Keurig machine.
6. Decanter Set
If your homeowner friend is not into coffee maybe you know they like things a little harder (on the rocks). This decanter set is nice, looks elegant and makes your friends know you can have fun and still be sophisticated (or trashed whatever right). you just need to supply the alcohol.
7. Small Plant With Vase
Keeping it practical is what this section is all about. Having a small plant that doesn’t need a lot of attention is the way to go because you never know what a persons green thumb (or lack of ) is like
8. Iron Skillet
This specific iron skillet can also be grouped with the luxury items that are up next. But I had to add it with the practical items because everyone deserves and needs an iron skillet.
9. Knife Set
Kitchen items are always a go to staple when it comes to housewarming gifts. Make sure you give a knife set like this one to really show you care.
Stainless steal and long lasting knife set.
10. Wooden Spoons
No more gifting plastics please. Give your friends and loved ones and neighbors some wooden utensils (like these) and see how many times they invite you over for dinner (trust).
11. Cookware Set
I think you knew this was coming up next. This cookware set has so maaaaaaany 5 star reviews I had to add it to this list of housewarming items.
It’s all stainless steal cookware too.
Luxury Housewarming Gifts
12. Watch Box
Do you know if they have a lot of accessories. Sometimes people who seem to have everything still need a little of something. That something is a watch box.
Not only is it a luxury gift to give, it also helps them keep something valuable in place and organized.
13. Wine Rack
How cool is this mini wine rack, not only can they place it anywhere in their home. Its made from bamboo making it very sturdy.
14. Glass Water Filter Pitcher
This glass filtered pitcher is so beautiful and makes for a great housewarming gift for someone who may seem to have it all. I think they would love the simple style and how it can be matched with any home design.
15. Golf Set
If you are going to go with a golf set please make sure you know the person actually golfs (or intends to start). My husband would literally marry anyone who gifted him a golf set lol.
16. Kitchen Aid Mixer
A kitchen aid mixer is a staple in every kitchen, however they’re more on the pricey side, so gifting one would give you brownie points literally.
17. Glass Tupperware
Not a lot of people put in thought to their food storage containers. Which is why you’re going above and beyond by bringing this housewarming gift.
18. Decorative Plates
I think this is a great way to give both utensils and these decorate plates can also be used as decor.
19. Art Piece
It doesn’t have to be large art to be great art. However this piece right here has been seen in many homes recently making it a must have gift to give.
20. Ring System
This is the final product under the luxury list, although it’s not top of mind when you think lux, it is peace of mind and nothing is more lux than that.
