Best Housewarming Gift Ideas | For Couples, Men or Women
Presents to Help People Settle Into Their New Home
Housewarming gifts are given to people who have just moved into a new home; often first-time buyers or a couple moving into their first shared home (as these events are more momentous). Much like a wedding, the gifts are often quite general and are difficult to choose, although unlike a wedding the recipient is not necessarily a couple but could instead be a single man or woman.
The usual type of gift is a food basket/hamper or bottle of wine, so I thought I'd share a list of what I believe would make great gifts to hopefully give you some different and more unusual ideas (all at affordable prices :))
I hope you find what you are looking for here!

Red Kalorik Programmable Coffee Machine $70
A classic gift for new homeowners and any coffee drinkers who don't already own a coffeemaker; especially one that looks as expensive as this one!
BergHOFF Stainless Steel Bread Bin $70
Maybe not the most exciting gift in history, but everyone needs a bread bin and there are some really lovely designs available including rustic wooden boxes and futuristic designer options!
Java Silhouette Key Rack $6
Key hooks are an affordable and practical gift choice, and there are so many lovely designs to choose from that you should be able to find one that absolutely matches the personality of the recipient.
5 More Top-Rated Home Accessory Gifts
Solar Powered Light-Up Mailbox Address $60
Fitting onto any regular-sized mailbox, this address number light is a very clever idea, and looks smart too!
Berry Cluster Wreath $45
Make a house feel instantly much more like a home by hanging a wreath on the door! There is a wide range of wreaths to buy, so try to find something that suits the season, or something durable that will last for years like this example.
Salt & Pepper Grinders $48
Salt and pepper shakers and grinders are found in every home and there is a huge variety to choose from including novelty shapes and electronic gadgets. This pair of grinders falls more into the techy gadget category, which is why it would be a great gift for men as well as women.
Libbey Curved Glassware Set $32
These drinking glasses are such an attractive and unique shape that you are sure to get plenty of compliments about how cool they look! Very good value too.
Nachtmann 'Slice' 10" Tall Vase $50
Vases are pretty and useful presents (I think you can never have too many vases!), and if you give some fresh flowers as part of the gift too they will certainly brighten up a new home. It's difficult to pick a decorative item when you don't know what the color scheme will be in the house, so I've chosen this clear vase so that it will fit into any style and color of decor.
48-Hour Beeswax Candle Coil $29
I'd not seen a candle that was anything like this design before I came across this example (below), and I think it looks very interesting and different. The best thing about this type of candle is that you can uncoil a few inches of the beeswax, clip it into place, light it and then after around an hour it will extinguish itself - handy!
Black Wire 6-Bottle Wine Rack $24
Traditionally people bring a bottle of wine for a housewarming gift, but if you want to bring something a bit more long-lasting then this tasteful wire rack is an elegant and functional choice.
