Gift ideas for housewarming

Finding the right housewarming gifts is easy with our definitive gift guide and exclusive discounts.

In the days before central heating, a housewarming party consisted of people literally bringing piles of firewood to start fires and warm their friends' new houses. Unfortunately, firewood isn't quite going to cut it these days. Choosing a gift for a housewarming party can be difficult because there are a few things you need to consider. Luckily for you, the team at finder.com.au has found the best housewarming gifts for you to choose from. We've even put together some great discount and promo code offers to save you even more money.

How to choose the best gifts for a housewarming party

When choosing a gift for a housewarming party there are a few things to consider that should help you decide.

  1. Who? Who is moving out? Is it your friend, your sister, your uncle, your boyfriend, your old housemate? It sounds obvious, but you need to consider who is moving out and the circumstances. Is it your younger sibling moving out of home for the first time? Consider buying something practicable that you wish someone had given you when you moved out. Is it a friend? Something fun and lighthearted to add a nice touch to their new decor might be a good choice. Consider the person or people who are throwing the party.
  2. Where? Where are they moving to? If it's an apartment, don't get something too big because they might be short on space. If it's a new designer house, try to stay away from a decorative gift because it may not match the decor they have chosen.
  3. What? What are the circumstances of the move? Is it their first time moving, are they downsizing or upsizing, are they moving in with their partner? Consider where they are moving from and where they are moving to and think if they need something extra that they didn't have at their last place.

If all else fails, a fun and lighthearted gift is always a good way to go. Moving is fun and a housewarming party is a celebration, so celebrate with them.
