Housewarming Gift Ideas

Moving home is always a big deal so if you have a friend that is currently moving then you will want to do everything that you can to support them and help them to settle in their new home. One of the best ways that you can do this is with a thoughtful housewarming gift that they will find valuable in their new home.

It can be hard to know what makes a good housewarming gift and you will want to choose something memorable. Here are a few ideas:

Wall Art/Photographs

When you move into a new house it can sometimes take a while for it to feel like home. One of the best ways to speed this up is with wall art or photographs which will help to add personality along with style. This should always be a reflection of the r identify and fit with the colour scheme/decorative style of the room.

Potted Plants

Every home looks better with potted plants in as this can bring colour, life and visual interest to any space. Not only this,but having plants indoors is proven to have positive mental health benefits which can be welcome after a stressful move and while you are trying to settle into a new house.

Scented Candles

You can’t go wrong with scented candles as a housewarming gift as they can fill the home with a pleasing fragrance which will help your friend to relax and feel settled in the home. Additionally, they can add decor to the room especially when paired with attractive candle holders. You can find a wide range of different scented candles from places like Neom where you should be able to find a few types that your friend will enjoy and appreciate.


It may not be the most glamorous gift idea but everyone needs a good toolbox especially when settling into a new home. This is a highly practical gift particularly if they currently have very little or even no tools at all.

Nice Bottle of Wine

It is hard to go wrong with a nice bottle of wine as a gift but it is particularly good as a housewarming present. After all the stress of moving and then unpacking, enjoying a glass of wine and getting settled into your new home is the best to unwind after a difficult day. You could also offer to spring for a takeaway or take them out for dinner so that they don’t have to cook after a day of unpacking.

When your friend moves home you will want to do everything that you can to help the process to be as simple as possible and to help them settle quickly. A thoughtful welcoming gift is a terrific way to do this with the above being just a few ideas.
