The Best Housewarming Gifts

  • 5 years ago

If someone close to you has just moved into a new place, or if you’ve just moved and your friends are asking what you’d like, then you need some good housewarming gift ideas.

Some plush and cosy throws

Nothing says “home” more than a few thick, luxurious throws and blankets. Draped over chairs and sofas, they’re always there when you want to snuggle up and nest in the new place.

A wine chiller

This can be a retro-chiller made of marble or a fancy new state-of-the-art rapid type. If it makes kicking back at the end of the day and enjoying a glass of Prosecco easier, it’s a definite goer.

A basic toolkit

Moving in is just the start. It’s when the last boxes are unpacked that the real work of turning a house into a home begins. There are nail-holes to be filled, shelves to be put up, scuffs and scrapes to be cleaned up and painted over… A basic toolkit that features everything from a spirit level to a few rawl plugs is in order.

A fire blanket and extinguisher

It’s probably not the first or the most glamorous thing you think of when you’re looking for housewarming gifts, but you can get some designer versions in coordinating colours so your friends can cook in safety and style.

A shower speaker

If the new house has a big bathroom and shower then some musical accompaniment to morning ablutions won’t go amiss.

Some wildflower seeds

One sure way to feel at home is to plant flowers and so a gift of wildflower seeds is a lovely gift that’ll keep on giving. You can opt for flowers that attract bees, butterflies or both, so you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment.

A personalised jigsaw puzzle

This puzzle could feature the map of the new postcode or a photo of the exterior of the house. Not only will the new owners have fun completing the puzzle, but they could frame it and hang it when they’re done.
