When it comes to choosing a gift for a friend or family member’s housewarming, cast a wide net, from practical to just plain fun. Whether they’ve moved into their first home or simply switched to a new and improved apartment, they’ll appreciate receiving something that will help them settle in and get organized just as much as they’ll take to an indulgent treat. Find kitchen tools, outdoor garden décor, and much more in our housewarming gifts collection.
Kitchen tools like trivets, serving bowls, or specialty cookware are a fun, functional option for those now equipped with their first ever fully-fledged kitchen. Shopping for somebody new to home cooking—say, a newly independent college grad, or a bachelor who’s only recently learned what exactly it is that a broiler does? Basics like sturdy flatware, guest-worthy plates, and glasses you’re proud to show off are sure to be a hit. And what about an experienced at-home chef? Go for the uncommon with specialty tools that even the most skilled among us might not possess, like hand-carved personalized cutting boards or oil infusing kits.
Outdoor décor and gardening tools are a good bet, too, for anyone newly blessed with a yard. Already know that they’ve got a green thumb? Reach for something that’ll help them get going, like a suite of deluxe gardening tools, or perhaps a special set of seeds to get their brand new vegetable patch up and running. If your giftee isn’t quite so skilled, a little bit of outdoor décor like a mobile or garden sculpture may not be such a bad idea. After all, even if they can’t grow plants, they deserve to have a snazzy lawn.
Spa & Relaxation
In the market for something a bit more decadent? Anyone who’s just schlepped their stuff from one locale to the other will no doubt welcome the chance to indulge in a relaxing bath. Gifts like sweet-smelling soaps or bath salts will help them find a moment of peace amid the chaos of a move. Candles and teas are also solid picks, allowing your friends to spruce up their home with a fresh scent or to settle down for a relaxing cup of tea before bed, whether they actually have a bed frame or not.
Equally restorative? A little bit of luxury snack time. Why not reach for a bar of specialty chocolate—or, even better, a caramel sampler? Anything to help take your friend’s mind off of setting up her utility bills, or calling her super to fix that squeaky board. Remember: Salty snacks can do the trick, too. Think a set of luxury peanut butters, or, for the truly motivated, a make-it-yourself bagel and cream cheese kit.
Personalized Housewarming Gifts
Finally, there’s no better way to say “this is my place” than a gift with your name on it, so snag something personalized for your newly transplanted friends. Custom accessories like wall art, pillows, and doormats easily add an individual touch to a new home, and functional made-to-order gifts, like monogrammed mugs, special coasters, and finely etched glassware, inject their own fair share of personal flair into a new space. A hint of unique energy goes a long way in making a house feel like a home, so be sure to consider some one-of-a-kind gifts that will show friends you really care.
