Do you have an upcoming housewarming party? Are you wondering what to bring as a gift? Housewarming gifts can be especially hard to pick out. Even when people move into a new house, they often have a lot of the typical things they already need to make the place complete.
Perhaps this is why so many people give flowers as a housewarming gift. But, while flowers always make a great gift, they’re not the most unique option out there.
So, what should you give as a housewarming gift? Check out this guide to discover the top unique housewarming gift ideas.
1. Drink Accessories
Everyone has a beverage that they especially enjoy, whether it’s wine, a nice cocktail, a warm cup of coffee, or a soothing mug of tea. If you know the recipient’s preferred beverage of choice, then you have the makings of a great housewarming gift.
For example, if they love wine, then you can get them a wine decanter. If they’re big tea drinkers, then you can get them a fancy tea set with a tea sampler box. For cocktail drinkers, you can buy some nice mule glasses or a cocktail stirring kit. And, for coffee drinkers, there are all sorts of options, from nice mug sets to Keurigs to French press machines.
2. City Map Art
While people can be very particular about the artwork they hang in their home, pretty much everyone loves city map art.
These are custom-made pieces of art that show the map of the city from an aerial angle. For the recipients, you can get them a map of the city they live in now, one of the city they’re from (if it’s the same), one of the city where they met, or one of a city where they love to vacation.
When in doubt about what gift to give, candles are pretty much always the way to go. After all, who doesn’t love the soothing scent and feel of a freshly lit candle?
If you want to make the gift extra personal, there are many shops online that allow you to customize the candle’s label. You could print a personalized message on the candle such as, “Congrats on your new home” or “We’re so excited that we’re neighbors”.
If you’re thinking along the lines of something decorative, giving a crystal is a great idea. Many crystals are quite beautiful. And, unlike artwork, you don’t have to worry too much about the recipient’s personal style to make sure that this gift fits in with the rest of the home decor.
Crystals come in many sizes, shapes, and colors, meaning you can choose one that will perfectly coincide with the aesthetic of any room. You can check out this guide to learn about some popular crystals.
5. Gift Card
If you know that the recipient is picky, then a gift card is often the way to go. In fact, picky decorators usually appreciate gift cards the most. To make it a bit more personal, try to find out one of their favorite decor stores. If you’re unsure, go for a big brand like Amazon or Target where they’ll be sure to find at least one thing they like.
If you feel like a gift card is too impersonal, you can always pair it with a nice box of chocolates or a small plant.
