FAQS about housewarming gifts

Have you got a burning question about housewarming gifts and presents? Read on! We'll answer it in this section.

What do you give as a housewarming gift?

You can give anything that makes a new space feel like home as a housewarming present. The first few weeks of living in a new space are kind of chaotic, and a housewarming present should help your giftee make the space their own and make it feel more lived in.

Some of the most popular housewarming present ideas are:

  • Scented candles
  • Kitchen towels
  • Kitchenware
  • Fancy hand soap
  • A glass vase
  • Wine
  • Flowers (just make sure they're pet-friendly)
  • Gardening equipment for those with a green thumb
  • Furniture
  • Storage solutions

What do you bring as a gift to a housewarming party?

If you're shopping for a housewarming party gift, we recommend choosing a food-based gift or a gift that people need multiple of (like tea towels). As parties are typically attended by many people, it's easy to accidentally buy the same gift as someone else if you opt for a standard gift like a toaster or wine glasses.

Some first-time home buyers and renters also put together a registry of items they need. If your giftee has done that, we recommend buying from the registry so you can guarantee they get something they'll use.

Do you offer any housewarming gift baskets?

Yes, and in our humble opinion, gift baskets and hampers are a great housewarming present because they pamper the giftee and spoil them with goodies they would never have bought for themselves.

Our two most popular housewarming hampers include the Indulgent Home Essentials With Red Wine Hamper and the Indulgent Home Essentials With Moët Hamper. Both these hampers contain a bottle of something to christen the new home with and some luxury homewares your giftee will adore.

We also offer a range of sweet and savoury hampers for foodies. Our top food hamper for housewarmings is the Red Wine & Nibbles Hamper.

Do you offer any personalised housewarming gifts?

Yes! We offer two types of personalised gifts: jewellery that can be engraved and leather goods that can be embossed. Jewellery isn't a popular housewarming gift, but leather goods are. Our leather goods range includes wine tags, toiletry bags, overnight bags, clutches, notebook holders, passport covers, keyrings, pencil cases, and wallets.

Our top recommendation for a personalised housewarming gift is our Leather Wine Neck Tag. It pairs great with a bottle of wine and will help your giftee add their own touch to their new place.
