Best Housewarming Gift Ideas This Year
The Sill Philodendron Green, $35
A leafy green plant or potted flower that is blooming will breathe life into a new home instantly. But you don’t want to give a huge burden to your friends (especially on top of any household repairs that are now on their to-do list), so make sure you pick a tough plant that doesn’t need too much maintenance. That’s why we love The Sill’s Philodendron Green plant: its trailing vines and heart-shaped leaves are not only fresh and bright, but they can withstand low light and only need to be watered once a week. To fit perfectly with your pal’s new home, pick from five vivid planter colors.
Anthropologie Marrakesh Wine Rack, $58
Do you like this housewarming gift idea? How beautiful is this sparkling, gilded piece? This wine rack, made from durable iron, can comfortably accommodate up to six bottles of wine or bubbly. And it’s finished in a glossy brass hue and exclusive Morrocan-inspired detailing all over the intricate frame to make it stun and sparkle. You can combine this housewarming gift with a bottle of their favorite white or red blend if you want extra points to really send it over the top.
Crate & Barrel Wood and Marble Bar Tool Set, $59.95
This is one of the best housewarming gift ideas. Thanks to this bar tool collection, your friend will cheer for their new home in serious style. Complete with all they’ll need to make a couple of delicious cocktails (except booze that is), including a bottle opener, muddler, stainer, and double-sided jigger. All the basics of bartending are made of elegant stainless steel and sit beautifully in white marble and mango wood block that can be placed on a bar cart or countertop (since it’s too cute to stash away in a kitchen drawer!). For the perfect housewarming gift, pair the set with a bottle of their favorite liquor.
Loved and Found Home Sweet Home Box, $134.00
With this beautiful gift box from Loved and Found, get them started on stocking their new kitchen. They can find an assortment of treats and trinkets inside, including a four-piece coaster collection of marble and wood, a bottle of savory salts, fresh basil pesto, a tasseled tea towel, a box of caramel cookies salted with chocolate, and some seasonal dried flowers. This gift feels so unique and the culinary treats will certainly help bring the “sweet” in “home sweet home,” bundled up in a rustic wooden crate and bound with a ribbon.
Vitruvi Essential Oil Diffuser, $119
Comforting fragrances only smell like homes, such as lavender and vanilla. In their new room, help your friends feel at ease by offering them a high-tech way to fill the walls with these calming scents. Thanks to a BPA-free plastic water reservoir and ultrasonic technology, this Vitruvi diffuser is minimalist in appearance (we’re obsessed with that natural terracotta hue!) yet does the most in scenting a space. Just load it with essential oils and pick between a continuous runtime of 3 hours or an intermittent runtime of 7.5 hours. The diffuser will do its thing either way and then turn it off on its own. It’s a perfect way to make it feel like home in a building.
CB2 Ring Petrified Wood Serving Board, $69.95
Only imagine all the spreads of fruit and cheese that will be served at all their future dinner parties for this beauty! Courtesy of CB2, this serving board is wide and solid, weighing in at over a foot in diameter. Yet our favorite part of this pretty dish is that it’s one of a kind altogether. It is made from petrified wood logs that are then machine-cut and hand-polished forged from Indonesian forests, so each and every finished piece has a specific coloring, grain pattern, and form. When friends come over, they’ll be so happy to show it off.
Pineapple Candle, $29.70
Pineapples are a sign of hospitality, so it’s only fitting to offer them a candle shaped like a tropical fruit. Try this housewarming gift idea and you won’t regret it.
Family Name Sign, $64.00
Nothing says “Welcome home!” like a hand-painted sign with the family information of the new homeowner. Before you find the right fit, choose from four color choices and six sizes. The Family Name Sign is a perfect housewarming gift idea that everyone surely enjoys.
Brewsense Drip Coffee Maker, $71.96 (20% off)
For the coffee enthusiast, this coffee maker is surely loved, which can be programmed to brew a new cup of java ahead of time. Even better: our test for delivering a rich, bold, hot cup of coffee has ended. Besides, there is a great selection of coffee makers that worth trying.
8-Inch Square Baker, $13.99
Have you ever thought about this housewarming gift idea? We imagine so many brownies, rolls of cinnamon, and squares of shortbread coming out of this floral beauty. Best of all it happens that this ceramic dish is oven-safe, dishwasher-safe, and microwave-safe.
