Housewarming Gift Ideas

It can be challenging to think of what to get someone for a housewarming present. You don’t want to give them something they’ll want to toss or push deep into the closet or make them feel obligated to keep. Get the ball rolling for present inspiration by checking out our brainstormed housewarming gift ideas!

  • A lovely picture frame. This is a terrific housewarming gift idea because it gives the homeowner(s) the ability to choose what to put in the frame, and it’s a new sentimental piece for their house. Pro tip: Pick out a frame that is easily matchable and not too specific. This way, it can fit anywhere in the house!
  • New Homeowner Coupon Book. We know what you may be thinking. A coupon book, what is this Kindergarten? Well, don’t knock it quite yet; you can create an adorable and very useful coupon book using a free site such as Canva and make coupons for acts of service you can provide the new homeowners. Examples: Extra hand for painting, raking the leaves/mowing the lawn, moving day helping hand.
  • A gift card. Of course, this may seem like a boring option, but truthfully it may just be the person/couple’s favorite gift! There are lots of new items to buy with a new home, so having some extra cash goes a long way!
  • Monogrammed coasters/welcome mat. Two things that can be easily forgotten to pick up but come in quite handy day to day. Plus, every time the new homeowners use it, they’ll think of you!
  • Paint a picture. Is there a bit of an artist living inside of you? Paint a picture for the new homeowners to put up in their house! How incredibly special would it be to paint a picture of their home or of the person/couple themselves; a gift truly straight from the heart!
