10 Essential Housewarming Gifts

Moving to a new home comes with so many changes, and it is sometimes hard to settle in. Living in a new home may feel odd at first. The new homeowner may have picked the perfect home in regards to their personal budget, curb appeal, and location but sometimes that isn’t not enough to give it a truly “at-home” feel. To turn a house into your special home, the home needs personal touches to match the style of the new owner. Many new homeowners plan housewarming parties to make their new home feel cozy. This way, they can bring together family and friends to  bring life to their new home.  

10 Essential Housewarming Gifts:

Wreath – Decorations for home front doors can make it more welcoming. Wreaths can be handmade to add more sentimental value. For a personal touch, they can be made into a monogram.  

Candles – Scented candles for a new homeowner will help make the home cozier. Decorative candles are perfect accent pieces of decor for a new home.

Linens – Everyone appreciates new linens to add to their linen closet.

Silverware – Whether it is fine China or just a silverware set for everyday use, silverware is a great housewarming gift.

Picture Frames – For the pictures that don’t have a home either, frames are a great item for a new house. Hanging pictures on the wall and around the house is one of the best ways to feel comfortable in new surroundings.

Small kitchen appliances – During a move, sometimes small items get misplaced and are never to be found again. Small kitchen tools and appliances like bottle openers and can openers (make a huge difference).

Bath soaps – After a long day of unpacking boxes, it is essential to wind down. New homeowners with bathtubs should be taking full advantage of their use. Bath soaps may seem insignificant as a gift but can mean a world of a difference when it’s time to relax.

Robes and house slippers – On days that are perfect to cozy up in warm clothing, bathrobes and warm house slippers are perfect.

Food – Sometimes new homeowners are so busy unpacking that they don’t have time for anything, much less cooking a decent meal. A gift as simple as a home-cooked meal will be the best gift that a new homeowner could ask for.

Wine – For the wine connoisseurs, bringing a bottle to add to their new home’s wine collection will be a much appreciated addition to the new home.
