What makes a good housewarming present?

Try to buy something that the person doesn't have but needs or wants.

First of all, who are you buying for? A couple that has just moved in together? Maybe someone that has moved out for the first time? Or maybe a family that has just purchased a new home? Understanding who you're buying for will help you find something either needed or wanted.


What to buy as a housewarming gift?

For a single

If someone is moving out for the first time, think basics since they'll need everything. Appliances, cutlery, blankets, towels, coffee mugs – almost anything will be appreciated. If you're looking to spend a bit more, things like towels and bedsheets can be really appreciated. These are expensive items that can be hard to afford for those leaving their family home for the first time.

If they're moving to a new house or apartment, they will most likely have all the necessities, so think about something cute or quirky just for them. Does this person drink a lot of coffee? Try a nice coffee mug. Do they love popcorn? Maybe buy them a popcorn maker. Are they always cold? A nice throw blanket for their bed could work. Do they have a lot of plants? Maybe they could use a decorative watering can. Simple decor items are a good idea too. Vases, fruit bowls, candles, coasters or placemats are little things that can work with what they already own.

For a couple

If a couple is moving in together for the first time, there will be a lot of double-ups with regards to basic items. Often the couple will end up with two sets of cutlery, two sets of plates, two sets of bedsheets and more. So buying these homewares staples and basics is probably not the best idea – they've already got two! What you can do is think about storage ideas. Consider some pretty baskets, a set of shelves, a desk organiser, bookends, containers, jars or anything else to help the couple organise all the stuff in their lives. Also consider little stylish accents like decorative cushions, throws, vases and other items that might help the new home look more like a couple lives there together.

If they're moving to a new house or apartment, couples should already have most of their things organised and have the more necessary living, kitchen and appliance tools. So consider buying those little things they may not necessarily buy for themselves. Perhaps a fancy set of cutting boards? A cheese platter with matching knives? A coffee table book? Cocktail glasses? And if you really can't think of anything, some nice wine never goes astray!

For a family

Families will have a lot of things already. In fact, they'll probably have most of what they need. So try thinking about stylish extras that you can never have too many of. Serving bowls, table runners, placemats, cookbooks, coasters, fancy glasses or even a low-maintenance house plant. You could also think about buying something for the whole family together such as a board game, pool toys or a food hamper. If all else fails, a nice box of chocolates works too.
