Housewarming gift ideas

Help make a new home feel warm and inviting.

Updated

In the days before central heating, a housewarming party consisted of people literally bringing piles of wood to start fires and warm their friends’ new houses. Unfortunately, firewood isn’t quite going to cut it these days. Luckily for you, we’ve got some ideas and inspiration to help you find the perfect gift.

How to choose the best gifts for a housewarming party

Ask yourself these three questions to help you pick the best housewarming gift:

Who is moving?

Is it your friend, your sister, your uncle, your boyfriend, your old housemate? Consider who’s moving and then custom-tailor your gift to make it extra-special. While you might opt for something goofy and decorative for your sister, a more conventional and practical gift might be best for a coworker or friend.

Where are they moving to?

If it’s an apartment, don’t get something too big because they might be short on space. If it’s a newly designed house, try to stay away from a decorative gift because it may not match the decor they’ve picked out.

What are the circumstances of the move?

Is it their first time moving? Are they downsizing or upsizing? Are they moving in with their partner? Consider where they are moving from and where they are moving to and think if they need something extra that they didn’t have at their last place.
