The Best Housewarming Gifts For Friends And Family
Moving to a new place should be celebrated, and whether these are from the practical side or the decorative side of things, gifts are always appreciated by new movers. Here’s a roundup of our favourite housewarming gifts.
It can take time for a new place to feel like home, so this diffuser is a great gift to help new movers start to settle into a place and give it more of a homely feel. With a neutral, understated finish, this little diffuser is both functional and also a nice piece of decor, thanks to its ambient lighting feature, and will fit nicely in any home, no matter the colour of the walls.
The pan that launched a thousand Pinterest-ready kitchen pics, the Always pan is a worthy and functional addition to kitchens and makes a great, thoughtful gift for any cooking enthusiasts. If you know the colour scheme of your loved one’s kitchen, even better — you can take your pick from twelve colours.
Flowers are an easy and thoughtful housewarming gift, to add some (probably much needed) colour and brightness to a room. Pick from either a one-off bouquet that will do the trick of bringing a smile to someone’s face or a subscription to keep the smiles coming.
Often, artwork ends up being one of the last things that get sorted when moving, so surprise your family member or friend with a bright and colourful print to add some colour to their inevitably bare walls. Choose Love is an incredible charity providing humanitarian relief to refugees and displaced people around the world, and their work is vital to supporting millions of people around the globe. 100% of profits from each artwork sold goes directly to the charity, so it’s a gift that also does good.
Know the new mover’s interests well? A nice coffee table book may be the perfect gift to show a loved one you know their taste in literature while contributing some lovely decor to their place. Whether they’re photography buffs or love to read about travelling the world, you can get beautiful coffee table books they’d love to read through for lazy Sundays on the sofa.
A box of food may seem like a more unconventional gift, but it’s a practical and really delicious solution for movers. They’ll appreciate the value quick meals ready to heat will bring when their lives are still in boxes and the kitchen is still a work in progress. Select a range of meals, breakfasts, sides and treats for them, and you’ll see their freezer becomes their best friend.
