A thoughtful housewarming gift is the perfect way to congratulate a friend or loved one on their new home. We all know how much stress comes with moving. It's a big adjustment that is both exciting and overwhelming. A little housewarming gift is a kind gesture to help celebrate the big move. If you are unsure about what to gift a new neighbor or friend, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few of our favorite housewarming gifts.
Set from Williams Sonoma. Find it HERE.
Olive Oil & Balsamic set with French Bread
It’s a fact that life is better with freshly baked bread. Add some balsamic vinegar and olive oil for dipping and you have a beautiful and delicious curated gift. Some olive oil and balsamic gift sets even come packaged in beautiful crates, meaning all you need to do run to the local bakery for a beautifully baked loaf and voila! It's the perfect gift.
Set from Pottery Barn. Find it HERE.
Dish Washing Set
Washing dishes can seem like a never-ending task. Might as well make it enjoyable for your neighbors and friends by gifting a dish-washing set. This particular one from Pottery Barn comes with varying scents so you can choose one that best fits their personality and did we mention, it’s pretty?
European Linen Napkins from West Elm. You can find them HERE.
Linen Table Napkins
Linen is a timeless fabric that has been popular since ancient times. We like gifting simple table linens that will work for any occasion. This gift will be much appreciated especially among those who like to host.
Keychain from Mark and Graham. You can find it HERE.
Another great idea is a keychain for their new house keys. Brittany actually had an interior design professor that would give Tiffany’s keychains as a gift to her clients. You don’t need to go that expensive, especially if the keychain is thoughtful and reflects their taste and personality.
Candle from Anthropologie. You can find it HERE.
Fill their new home with a beautiful scent by gifting a candle. We particularly love the oversized Capri Blue volcano candles that you can find at Anthropologie. A candle also creates an atmosphere that is more intimate and cozy which is always nice for a new home.
Potted plant from The Sill. You can find it HERE.
A Potted Plant:
Did you know that gifting plants has often been associated with good luck and well wishes? Plants are a great gift because they bring a sense of calm into a space and also act as a decor piece. If you do not live near the recipient, you can order a potted plant from various online sites like this one, from The Sill, to be delivered.
Gift giving doesn’t have to be complicated. Think of the recipients personality, home, and aesthetic. What do you like to give as housewarming gifts? Have you been the recipient of a thoughtful housewarming gift? If so, share! We’d love to hear from you.
