Introduction to Gift Ideas For A Housewarming Party
Going to a housewarming party? That’s super exciting. There’s nothing like seeing people you love and getting an excuse to nose around their new digs! In exchange, it is only polite to take a gift with you, but you don’t want to be the one giving pointless dust-collectors that will never be used.
All out of ideas? Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Check out these five great gift ideas for a housewarming party:
The Goods To Cook Up A Storm!
By rights, if your friends are inviting you around to theirs for a housewarming party, the chances are they are the hosting types. So, why not give them the tools to cook up a storm in the future? Browse high quality cookware sets and give them the power to make delicious meals for all the dinner parties they likely want to host. They win with their new cookware, and you win knowing you’ll be sampling their delicious culinary creations soon!
All Of The Plants
Plants are on-trend, and they brighten up any home. For foodies, consider giving a cool hydroponics setup, some herbs in pretty pots, or even veggie seeds for their garden.
For those new to houseplants, go with easy to care for types like sansevieria, spider plants, cactus, and pothos.
For those experienced with houseplants, you can get fancier, choosing a variegated variety or even some interesting cuttings to propagate. Monstera adansonii, Rhaphidophora tetrasperma, and philodendron Brasil are good options.
When you move into a house, it can take a lot of time to get everything looking great and vibing the way you want it to. A hamper can be a great gift for people who are busy making their house a home. It gives them special bits and pieces to enjoy between unpacking. Some great ideas for housewarming hampers include:
- An eco-friendly hamper (compostable trash bags, wax food wraps, eco-friendly surface sprays)
- Gourmet food (crackers, cheese, alcohol-free wine)
- Cooking hamper (oils, cool utensils, salt pigs, seasonings)
- Take-a-Break hamper (chocolate, biscuits, tea, coffee, mugs)
Around 25% of couples who move in together do so after about four months of dating, and 50% do so after a year. If the housewarming you are attending is for a couple moving in together, a personalized gift could be a great idea.
Personalized chopping boards, mugs, or aprons are ideal for foodies. A piece of personalized art will work for creatives or lovers of decor. A framed photo of their pet or the couple together could be nice. The possibilities are endless. It’s a sure-fire way to celebrate their ‘togetherness’ on this brand new page of their journey.
Something That Was A Game-Changer For You
When you moved into your new place, did somebody give you a practical gift that was a total game-changer? Maybe a teddy fleece throw made your reading nook the snuggliest of all. Perhaps a potato ricer transformed your mashed potato game. Or was it an Egyptian linen quilt set that made the stars align for you at bedtime?
Whatever was a true game-changer for you when you moved house, pass a version of that gift on.
