Do you have a family member or friend who has recently moved into a new home? Are they holding a housewarming gathering that you’ll be attending?

You want to pick a gift that can be enjoyed but is also useful, so these ideas are sure to help.

A Food-Themed Hamper

When in doubt about their style, a food-based hamper is a safe route to take. You can either purchase a pre-made hamper which makes things easy and quick or, if you’ve got the time, you can put together a customised hamper.

Some of the items to include can be:

  • Wine
  • Sparkling wine
  • Fine chocolate
  • Artisan cheese and crackers
  • Fresh fruit
  • Nuts and dried fruit
  • Dried meat
  • Candies
  • Gourmet snacks
  • Spices

You can get as creative as you want with the items you put in the hamper.

A Decorative Vase

Luxury vases are universally pleasing regardless of the design style or concept in the home. Whether they are used for flowers or just as décor, they add beauty, sophistication and elegance to any space. This means they also make the perfect housewarming gift as the homeowner can never have too many vases. If you want to make the gift extra special, pick up a beautiful mixed flower bouquet to gift with the vase. When shopping for luxury vases, try to look for one that is unique, has an interesting design, is a neutral colour and is a statement piece.

Photo Frames to Help Mark Special Memories

Photo frames are one of those things everyone can use but don’t always splurge on themselves. They allow people to create photo walls or add personal touches to the décor. Simple wood or metal frames in a neutral colour are usually the safest bet.

Throw Blankets and Pillows to Warm Up the Space

Who doesn’t love snuggling up with a cosy throw blanket and pillow in the cool winter months, or even on a summer evening while stretched on the sofa? Throw blankets and pillows are multi-functional in that they provide a function and they act as décor. Take your time feeling the fabric and looking closely at the construction so you can pick something luxurious, plush, and well-made.

House Plants That are Budget-Friendly and Eye-Catching

If you’re shopping on a budget, a great housewarming idea is a houseplant. You can usually find reasonably priced options that look lush and beautiful. Houseplants give the space some personality, they can add a touch of colour, they bring the outdoors inside and they are excellent for improving indoor air quality.
