The Ultimate Housewarming Gifts For All Budgets
Purchasing your own house is a big deal, and whether it’s you or a friend or family member, there’s a lot to celebrate. And, there’s no better way to celebrate that achievement than with a beautiful housewarming gift straight from the heart.
The perfect gift doesn’t have to be large or expensive. There's really two options: practical or decorative. Practical can still be beautiful whereas decorative is really just to add style to the new space. Both are great and will be well received!
Keeping this in mind we've found the best housewarming gifts to save you the hassle!
Let's start with a cool and funky white Love The Mug with a heart warming “Congrats On The New Gaff” printed in red. It's fun and quirky, and won’t break your wallet. You can also get the Bodum Assam Teapot to either go with the mug, or as a stand alone gift. After all, everyone really needs a teapot, don’t they? The Bodum Assam Teapot is a 500 ml cleverly crafted, clear teapot that's stylish and practical too.
If you’re more of an aesthetic lover and prefer your gifts to be artsy, then take a look at the Genesis Love More Framed Plaque. Elegant in design, this 8 by 8 inch bronze tone plaque can be either hung on the wall or as a decorative shelf piece. It's also a really nice reminder that home is where the heart is.
Everyone needs a vase, right? Check out this chic Mother of Pearl Vase by LSA International. In ancient Asian tradition, the mother of pearl has come to symbolise love and provide protection from negative energy, making this vase the perfect housewarming gift.
Let's face it, the actual moving process is pretty stressful. Enter aromatherapy, an excellent way for a new homeowner to de-stress and unwind. The Essential Oil Blends Collection by Neom, consists of four of their iconic blends, The Scent To Sleep, The Scent To De-Stress, The Scent To Boost Your Energy, and The Scent To Make You Happy.
Who doesn't love their home to smell amazing! Rathborne’s White Pepper Honeysuckle & Vertivert Reed Diffuser is uniquely created to draw out the all-encompassing ambiance of Irish fragrances. Sweet top notes of lily, honeysuckle and jasmine, with a soothing hint of peach and lemon make this a gift that's sure to be loved.
Curling up on the couch with a super soft blanket is the epitomy of luxury and comfort so we love this Foxford Bone & White Large Block Cashmere Throw. The neutral colours mean it can suit any interior style. So beautiful that you might end up picking one for yourself (no judgement here).
Decorative housewarming gifts are tricky to get right because you need to match someone elses interior style. Give the gift of whimsical beauty with Pottery Barn’s Unicorn Bookends. Technically listed as being in the kid's section but for the right person, these are going to be a huge hit.
A great practical gift idea would be Zwillings Large Bamboo Cutting Board. Practical? Definitely! Everyone needs a good quality chopping board - even if this isn't their first home! And the bamboo craftiness makes it an excellent serving board for cheese or other tidbits as well. Double tick!
On par with how handy a good quality chopping board is - you can't go past a knife block set.
Viners’ Opulence Rose-Gold 5-Piece Knife Block Set is both a beautiful and practical housewarming gift idea. Not only does the rose gold finish add a sophisticated touch to your kitchen but it's super handy to have such a flexible knife storage solution.
Another practical, but lovely housewarming gift for any home chef would be Tramonitina’s Cookware Set of Four. Made of high grade stainless steel with tempered glass lids, these cooking dishes will always maintain their silver sheen and can be used on gas, electric, vitroceramic glass and induction stoves.
Keeping with the kitchen theme, if your pocket permits, there are a few higher end gifts that are sure to blow away their recipient. These would look great on display, the Wedgwood Wonderlust Plates Set of 4 have a striking and detailed pattern and are excellent for serving sandwiches and pastries for afternoon tea.
For a larger gift, we love a statement dinner set like the Royal Doulton Pacific Splash 16 Piece Set that the new homeowner will be proud to pull out at any dinner party. Set in pristine white, with vibrant pops of cobalt, this gift will add a splash of style to any home.
And, if you really want to go all out, then the Newbridge Silverware 24 Piece Kings Canteen is for those who deserve the very best in life. Its brilliantly, lustrous finish with a cream felt interior and is perfect for storing and displaying.
These thoughtful gifts are the best reminder that practicality and beauty are not mutually exclusive. They will always be cherished and are perfectly suited for any home. Additionally, you will always be remembered with fondness, everytime they’re used.
