We believe that a new home is worth celebrating.
For those who share this sentiment and find joy in marking the occasion for a friend, family member or loved one, we have compiled a handy guide to ten unique housewarming gifts that will do more than sit pretty on a shelf and actually be put to good use.
Granted it’s a more traditional gift, but one that still is extremely popular; especially given the ever-growing interior design trend of biophilic design. If this is a chosen route for you, we highly recommend purchasing a money tree given their resilience and the fact that they are pet-friendly. Did you know that they get their name from the belief that money trees welcome wealth and fortune to anyone in their path? Patch Plants is a great place to purchase, as well as understand a little more about going green at home but if you want to support local and choose your plant in person then we cannot recommend Hillier’s more highly!.
Help the new homeowner out and gift them with some show-stopping tableware to elevate their entertaining with style and sophistication when celebrating their new home! We particularly love this celebrate plate and funky cheeseboard!
One for the practical Pauls and Paulines out there – certainly not your typical gift but absolutely worth its weight in gold in case of an emergency!
These are unbelievably handy (excuse the pun!) and a huge time-saver that will ensure the new home is kept clean at the touch of a button. Have a look at the award-winning Bissell AeroSlim Lithium Ion Cordless Handheld Vacuum. We love the fact that it also comes with a washable filter and a handy storage stand! Make sure to shop around when searching for the right one though because the price tags can vary enormously!
Simple yet effective. For smaller budgets, but by no means less impressive, purchasing a luxury scented candle to set the tone after the chaos of moving day is over and unwind in the new surroundings is a perfect addition to a new home. Customise the label if you want or simply deliver a ‘scentsational’ experience to the new property owner.
Personalised door mat
The perfect combination of pretty and practical, with a friendlier price tag too! Why not customise a doormat to create a warm welcome to the new home, with the added benefit of keeping the entrance clean. Etsy is great place to start with some fun, customisable designs.
Indoor Herb Garden
Perfect for culinary creatives or beginners looking to try their hand at growing some greens! Click And Grow tick all the boxes here for a smart, sustainable and long-term gift that keeps on giving
Dinky Artist artwork for the home
The perfect gift for a family with children, and/or pets. A collaborative and personalised keepsake that will mark the occasion while tugging at the heart strings.
Voucher for local takeaway/restaurant
Because it’s tradition surely to have a celebratory takeaway meal on the first night in your new home. The last thing they’ll feel like doing is cooking on the first night! Have a look into places like TripAdvisor and consider what the recipient enjoys most to get the most out of this gift, before purchasing a voucher!
Bath Caddy Tray
(Check to make sure that the new property does in fact have a bath!) What better way to relax and unwind after a busy day of work, let alone moving house, than to soak in the bath with a glass of your favourite tipple and a good book or film! Look no further than this practical and stylish bath caddy tray. It’s not something that’s typically high on people’s priority list, but trust us – the recipient will thank you for it!
