Looking for the perfect gift for the new homeowner in your life?
For new homeowners, there are plenty of gift ideas you can go with since they’ll need a lot of things — but which one should you choose? To help you decide, we’ve created this list of the best housewarming gifts, catered towards first-time homeowners. Each selection is something your friend or family member will use often (even if just for aesthetic purposes), so pick the one you think suits them best and you’ll give them something to remember you for years to come.
Home decor is always a welcome addition to any home; just make sure you know the homeowner’s style and give them a gift that goes with their aesthetic instead of your own. Here are some of the most popular home decor items to give as a housewarming gift:
Denali throw blankets are the perfect housewarming gift because they can be used as decor and are incredibly comfortable for cozying up on the couch. Each blanket is hand stitched, double thick, and ultra durable for ultimate comfort over a lifetime of use. While some throws fall apart after a few trips through the washer, Denali blankets feature colors that don’t fade and they actually get softer after each wash. With several unique designs and styles, there’s something for everyone.
For the person who has everything, give the new homeowner in your life a custom watercolor portrait of their home. Starting at $45, this Etsy shop lets you choose from several sizes and each portrait features the coordinates of the home along with a personalized quote from the gifter. This unique piece of art is the perfect gift for a new homeowner, as it may be the first thing to hang up in their new house.
One of the easiest ways to ruin furniture is by leaving a drink on them, so help your new homeowner prevent stains by giving them a set of decorative coasters. These usually start around $20 dollars which makes them a useful and affordable housewarming gift idea.
A doormat is the first piece of decor you see, so show your favorite homeowner how well you know them by giving them a unique doormat suited to their style. Not only is this an affordable piece of decor, but the gift will also help catch dirt to keep the new home clean as visitors come and go.
Denali Pillows are a great gift because they can help your new homeowner accessorize to add a sense of style to any space. Whether they have a matching Denali blanket or not, these decorative pillows come in a wide variety of designs and are the perfect way to tie any room together perfectly.
Kitchenware makes a great gift for new homeowners because they’ll be doing plenty of cooking for the social events they’ll host, and because a few new items can help transform the aesthetic of the space. Here are some of the most popular kitchenware items to give as a housewarming gift:
If your new homeowner has been using the same pots and pans for several years, give them few new pieces of cookware to go along with their new home. Cookware comes at several price levels, so find a style catered to the homeowner’s taste and decide if you’ll give them a few pieces or a whole set.
Cutting boards are common to every kitchen, but for a touch of personal flair try giving your homeowner an engraved cutting board with their last name and a meaningful date such as their wedding, birthdate, or the day they purchased or moved into the home. A stylish cutting board also works well as a cheese plate for the countless parties the person will inevitably throw!
Salt and pepper shakers are a great gift because they can be fun and practical. If you want to give your homeowner something they’ll never expect — check out this list of 50 novelty shakers featuring a mix of stylish and creative designs.
In the rush to grab big-ticket items like new furniture, it’s easy to forget the little things like eating utensils. Give your homeowner a snazzy set of silverware so they don’t have to rely on plasticware from takeout. Even if they already have a set, they’ll appreciate having extra for social events (or for when they forget to run the dishwasher).
Everyone has a tupperware collection, but most people have one comprised of pieces from several sets they’ve acquired from others over time. A friend brings a dish over and you forget the bring the bowl back is a tale as old as time. A matching set of tupperware helps your kitchen and fridge stay organized and stylish, so give your favorite homeowner a reason to throw out their old pieces.
A new home requires cleaning and maintenance to stay in good shape. Here are a few tool and appliance gift ideas for your new homeowner:
One of the most notable differences between renting and owning is that as a homeowner — you can’t call the landlord when something breaks down. For those occasions, you’ll be glad to have an all-in-one toolset like this 65 piece kit from Stanley Tools. Additionally, this will also be handy for people looking to make renovations or those purchasing furniture that requires assembly.
More floor space means more cleaning, so make your homeowner’s life easier by giving them a new vacuum. Whether they have carpet, tile, or hardwood floors — a good vacuum will help keep the home looking new and clean.
Swiffers are the new and improved mops. They clean hard-to-reach surfaces that a mop just can’t get to and have easy to replace covers so you don’t have to worry about cleaning it after you're done. This helpful tool is a pet owner’s best friend.
If you’re looking for a fun housewarming gift, here are a few commonly recommended ideas:
Books are a great gift for new homeowners because they’re not just for reading, they can also be stylish accents used for home decor. Whether it’s on a shelf or coffee table, having a few books scattered around the home adds style and gives guests something interesting to look through. If you aren’t sure what makes a great coffee table book, check out this list from Barnes & Noble.
