Some of my friends have started moving into a new house and finding their own places, which is really exciting but overwhelming at the same time. Finding the best housewarming gifts is not that easy, especially if your friends haven’t given you any hints on what they might want or need!
When looking for presents for my friends and family, I try to find practical housewarming gifts that they will use every day. Nobody moving into a new house wants a gift they either have nowhere to put or will never use.
If you are looking for the best housewarming gifts, you’ll find tons below.
Best Overall: Cheese Cutting Board
“I bought this as a prize for my future daughter-in-law’s bridal shower last weekend. Everyone loved it so much that several have written to ask where I got it. My son & his fiancé have enjoyed it so much already that they’re buying one for my husband for Father’s Day. It’s so pretty, and such wonderful quality.”
Best Under $25: Electric Salt and Pepper Mill
“These salt and pepper mills are great, easy to use and refill when required. Even has a light in the bottom for those who like cooking in the dark!“
Most Popular: Cook With Me Cookbook
“I just got my copy and am so inspired to try Alex’s recipes. The narratives that accompany the recipes are great. Thanks, Alex! Congratulations on a beautiful and helpful book for us family cooks!“
Best Kitchen Appliance: Air Fryer
“I was sceptical of getting an air fryer. I found this model at a pretty decent price and it is a decent size. I have literally been cooking everything in this air fryer and couldn’t be happier. Just wish I would have pulled the trigger earlier.“
“I adore this wine chiller. It is sleek, modern, and does its job well. While it is not advertised as a case, I love to put flowers in mine too. It looks beautiful out on display anywhere in the home.“
THESE ARE OUR FAVOURITE HOUSEWARMING GIFTS
1. Welcoming Doormat
When someone is moving into a new house, a doormat isn’t usually something they think about. They are more concerned about where the furniture will go, if they have everything they need and millions of other things, but a nice doormat can put a smile on the face of any guest, so it’s pretty important in my opinion!
2. Bath Mat
I love practical housewarming gifts that are also as pretty as this bath mat. Cute little things like this are really appreciated when moving into a new house, just make sure you buy something that actually looks nice in their new house.
3. Wine Holder
Again, practical housewarming gifts like this beautiful wine holder are not something that new homeowners have at the top of their list when moving into a new house – maybe they do, if they are like me – so they make great housewarming gifts.
4. Wine Chiller
Who doesn’t like an elegant wine chiller? Wine chillers are incredibly versatile because they can also work to hold candles, kitchen utensils, plants and much more! CB2 is one of my go-to brands when looking for the perfect housewarming gifts.
5. Fluted Glass Vase
Flower vases make amazing and very practical housewarming gifts, and I personally love to buy some flowers to go with it. This one is perfect for pretty much any decoration style and because it’s clear glass you don’t have to worry about colour schemes.
You won’t believe the price of this amazing glass vase!!
6. Marble Bookends
These marble bookends are so pretty I have to buy them for myself, I am not even kidding. I love this kind of things and I think they are the best housewarming gifts. When someone is moving into a new house, the decoration process is long and expensive, and buying them practical housewarming gifts like this is really helpful.
7. “New Home” Candle
I love homesick and their amazing candles. When moving into a new house, it is important to make the place feel like home, and the smell plays a big role. Gifting them this “New Home” candle you’ll be helping them create the perfect home.
8. A Cookbook
I would love to receive a cookbook at any time of the year, but I think they are incredibly practical housewarming gifts. A new house often means a new kitchen to cook and new recipes to learn. David and I have tons of amazing cookbooks but we love this one in particular.
Other cookbook recommendations:
9. Silk Pillowcases
This might not be one of your go-to housewarming gifts, but it’s one they will obsess over. Silk pillowcases are amazing for your skin and your hair and promote good sleep, so everyone needs one!
10. Cake Stand
This is one of the most beautiful and sophisticated cake stands I have ever seen. If your friends love all things cooking and baking, a cake stand would be one of the most practical housewarming gifts for them.
11. Cheese Cutting Board
I know just a few people that wouldn’t love to receive a cheese cutting board as a housewarming gift. You are gifting them the amazing moment of a Saturday night enjoying good and cheese and sharing those moments with their loved ones. One of the most practical housewarming gifs they will use a lot.
12. Set of Coasters
Coasters are really practical housewarming gifts. It’s really hard to get it hard with a set of pretty coasters like these ones.
13. A Waffle Maker
I mean, who doesn’t adore waffles? Most people I know love them but don’t have a waffle maker, so it’s been my go-to housewarming gift for years now. Kitchen essentials are very practical housewarming gifts and you’ll save your friends a lot of money when moving into a new house.
14. Raclette Table Grill
I have amazing memories from the Raclette days I spend with my friends. They are incredibly practical housewarming gifts and If they have never tried it before they will use it every day, I promise!
15. An Air Fryer
Can you imagine having fries and fried chicken without the remorse of knowing they are not healthy? Well, with this you can. Moving into a new house is really stressful, gift your friends the ability to eat whatever they want after opening all those boxes!
16. Electric Salt and Pepper Mill
When buying gifts to young people that are moving into a new house, you need to find practical housewarming gifts that will save them money and they will use every day. This salt and pepper set is an amazing housewarming gift that anyone would love.
17. The Home Edit Book
When moving into a new house, you have the opportunity to create a new organization system that works better than the last one. If your friends haven’t started opening boxes yet, they can organize their house based on The Home Edit systems, which will change their lives forever. One of the more practical housewarming gifts.
18. Wine Rack
If your friends love wine, this is the best housewarming gift for them! We love practical housewarming gifts that also work as pretty home decoration! If you want to make this gift even better, accompany it with a bottle of their favourite wine, you’ll be their favourite friend!
19. An XL Candle
Candles are amazing housewarming gifts, especially if they are as pretty and elegant as this one. I bought one very similar to this and although it’s empty now I still use it to decorate the living room. These “2 in 1” candles are really practical housewarming gifts.
20. Decoration Books
I love to receive decoration books – maybe because I am an interior designer – and I think they make amazing housewarming gifts. When moving into a new house you need to come up with some sort of style or theme for your decoration and this kind of books are really helpful.
Also, most decoration books are so pretty that they will become part of the actual decor of the house. Very practical housewarming gifts.
21. Echo Show 5
This is one of the most practical housewarming gifts of the whole list, hands down. The Echo dot lets you call friends and family, look up recipes, play music, even video chat! It’s such an amazing housewarming gift for someone moving into a new house.
22. Personalised Home Print
Personalised prints are great housewarming gifts, especially if they are moving into their first house together. These prints are easy to find and very inexpensive, and they will add a lot of character into your friend’s new home.
23. Personalised Key hook
Remember that this is all about practical housewarming gifts that are also beautiful and will be used every day, like this amazing personalized key hook. This is something I’d love to get for myself.
24. New Home Keyrings
These cute keyrings are such lovely housewarming gifts. A set of personalised keyrings for love birds who are moving into a new – or maybe their first – home together.
25. Pasta Lovers set
I don’t know a single person that doesn’t adore pasta, do you? This pasta lovers set is one of my favourite housewarming gifts because I’d love to have it myself! I think it’d be really cool to surprise everyone with such a professional tool.
26. Porcelain Teapot
I fell in love instantly with this teapot when I saw it, and I thought it’d be one of the most perfect gifts ever for someone moving into a new house. It’s so pretty – and useful – and it’d look so nice in a well-decorated kitchen. I really want it for myself!
