Did you know that the term ‘housewarming’ originated from literally the act of warming a new house before the days of convenient central heating. Each guest would bring firewood as a very practical housewarming gift to create heat at the available fireplace.
With modern day centralized heating, thoughtful housewarming gifts extend far beyond just firewood. Keep reading for some ideas on what to bring to a housewarming party that will guarantee you a welcome back.
- A Wine Hamper
You can never go wrong with a wine hamper. Red, white or sparkling, it is a great gift that is bound to put a smile on the face of a new homeowner.
The best thing about a wine hamper is that it is beautifully packed ready-to-go as a gift at a hand and can be sent straight to the new homeowner even if you can’t make it to the housewarming party.

- A Personalized Cutting Board
Besides the bedroom the kitchen is also where the magic happens. We can all agree that a cutting board is a kitchen staple, which makes it a great gift to celebrate your friend’s new forever home. It can be used to cut everything from fruits to cheese and even turned into a serving tray.
You can even make it uniquely theirs by getting a special note engraved or simply their names. You can browse for some custom engraved boards here for a very special personalised gift.
- A Bloom Box
Congratulate the new homeowner with a gorgeous arrangement of flowers! But not just any. We’re talking about fresh flower boxes that are easy to carry and delivered straight to your loved ones.
Moving into a new home is a momentous moment and having a new home smell like fresh flowers is a wonderful way of making it feel like home sweet home.
A bouquet of fresh flowers is guaranteed to brighten and keep the new home smelling wonderful for at least a week. Add a vase too for a longer-lasting memento of that special day.
Take a look at what we have to offer with our range of Bloom Boxes that comes in a fresh new arrangement every week with same day delivery.
- Wall Art
Another sure way to leave a lasting impression is by gifting art. Taste in art is very subjective. However, if this new homeowner is someone very close to heart, then this is your chance to demonstrate how you truly know them by getting art that they will appreciate for years to come.
You can design your own custom housewarming art piece here.
- Weighted Blanket
Blankets are the ultimate symbol of that cozy and homey feeling. Make a house a home by giving the new homeowner a weighted blanket they can cozy up on the couch with.
Besides it being both decorative and useful, it will also bring some good humour to the special occasion as you will be literally giving some warmth when your homeowner needs it!

- Bottle Opener
Good housewarming gifts need not be big and expensive, sometimes they can be small and convenient — just like a bottle opener.
There is guaranteed to be several moments in that new homeowner’s life where a bottle opener will absolutely come in handy, even more so if he or she is a wine connoisseur.
Here is a trusted and tested bottle opener you can’t go wrong with!
