Housewarming gift ideas

You have been invited to a housewarming party, but what are you going to give as a housewarming present? It might be family or friends moving out into their first home, or someone simply moving house, but you will regularly find yourself in a situation where you need to come up with a good housewarming gift. Read on for plenty of gift ideas.

5 ideas for the perfect housewarming present

When in search of the perfect housewarming present, you can never go wrong if you choose one of the following:

1. Bedding sets

Lovely new bedding is always a hit as a housewarming gift. Everyone appreciates soft, crisp bedding, and a new colour can work wonders for the style of a bedroom. Bedding comes in many price ranges and qualities and the options are endless when it comes to choice of design. You can choose from a range of colours, prints and motifs, depending on who you are buying for.

2. Towels

New towels make a practical housewarming gift. The great thing about giving towels as a gift is that there is an abundance of different colours and sizes you can choose from. There are also a wide range of towels to fit a multitude of purposes: guest towels, bath towels, hand towels and face cloths. Therefore, it's easy to find something to suit any taste.

3. Candlesticks and vases

Small decorations help make a home cosy. Home accessories such as candlesticks, vases and plants are always a welcome housewarming gift for a new home. The sky is the limit in terms of design, price, choice of colour etc. If you are unsure about what colour the recipient prefers, go for something neutral that will suit most homes.

4. Throws and cushions

A cosy throw is a perfect housewarming gift. It can be used to decorate a room, to feel warmer and cosier during winter, and a throw can even be used as a gift for the pet in the home. Team with complementing cushions to complete the set and to offer accessories for many different rooms.

5. Boxes and baskets

Boxes and baskets are great gifts for new homes. They can be used for practical storage or decoration. Team a few wicker baskets together or even a metal basket to add a sense of style to these affordable and practical storage solutions.

New items for the home make people happy

It's always nice to get new things for your home, particularly when your new home needs decorating. When we move, we get the urge to renew and refresh the things we surround ourselves with in our home, and it's even better if a family or friend has bought the gifts for you.
