Do you have a friend or family member who has just recently bought their first home, or just a new-to-them home? If so, there’s a good chance there will be a housewarming party in the near future, and if not, there will still be that initial first visit you make to the home. As is customary, it’s always nice to bring a housewarming gift to show your congratulations on their new home.
So rather than just reach for the typical non-descript gift, why not bring a housewarming gift that is useful and appreciated by the new homeowners? To help you come up with that “perfect” idea, here’s a list of five of the most appreciated housewarming gifts.
Wine and/or Beer Glasses
If the new homeowner is the type that enjoys wine and/or beer, and also likes to entertain, then you’ve got a perfect gift idea right there. Why not give them a set of high-quality and stylish wine or beer glasses that are perfect for all those gatherings they will hold in their new home? Take a look at this Spiegelau craft beer glass, which is a perfect example of the type of glass you want to look for. Typically, people aren’t going to splurge on glasses for themselves, but at the same time it’s an incredibly useful item to have.
Luxurious Bathroom Linens
Here’s another one of those items that every homeowner can use, but isn’t necessarily going to go out and splurge on. Luxurious bathroom towels are not only great from a practical standpoint, but they also add to the décor and overall elegance of the room. A matching set makes for the absolute perfect housewarming gift.
If you don’t know the color of their bathroom, opt for a neutral color like cream, tan, a soft grey, brown, or even black.
A Photo Frame or Photo Collage Frame
There’s no doubt that the new homeowner will be decorating their new space over the coming weeks and months, so providing them with a beautiful frame to hang their personal photos in is a great idea. You don’t have to know anything about their color palette or décor taste to pick out a frame, and you can choose to go with a single photo frame or the popular collage style frames.
Give the Gift of Coffee with a Coffee Grinder
If the homeowner is a coffee drinker, then you can up their coffee game by gifting them with a coffee grinder. Grinding your own coffee at home will completely transform the flavor, making it richer, bolder, and more like a coffee house. Of course, they will need to have a coffee machine in order to brew the grinds.
A High-End Knife Set
For those who have a bit more to spend where the budget is concerned, a high-quality knife set can make for a fabulous housewarming gift. Having the proper tools in the kitchen allows you to create amazing meals, and that means having knives that do a great job at food prep.
No matter which of these gifts you choose to give, each one is sure to be appreciated.
