10 Best Housewarming Gift Ideas

Housewarming Gift Ideas

Not in any particular order…

1. Cozy White Cottage Books

Liz Marie is one of my favorite home decor bloggers from whom I am inspired. And to gift one, or even two, of her “Cozy White Cottage” books as a housewarming gift idea would be just, well, so fabulous to receive.

2. Kanda Candles Housewarming Gift

My new favorite candles! Created with the vintage farmhouse in mind, these 100% soy candles, hand-poured, make great housewarming gifts.

From summer’s rainy days to the fall stage, “Crisp Apple” and “Fall Magic” will surely provide you and your guests with all the cozy vibes!

3. For the Birds Housewarming

Keeping our feathered friends in mind, I love the idea of a bird feeder wreath for a little outdoor decor as one of the best housewarming gifts. Here are a few of my favorites…

Maybe even a birdhouse to match the home, like this one we recently installed.

4. Think Local

Do you have a popular or favorite local shop that is indicative of where you live? Maybe a cheese shop, gift shop, wine store, etc.?

When we are in Maine, one of my favorites is Stonewall Kitchen.

Create a gift basket like some of these for a great and thoughtful housewarming gift.

6. A Broom

Yes, a broom!

A broom is a traditional housewarming gift idea to give “so that you don’t bring dirt from the last house in with you.” Add a handwritten note with the broom explaining this tradition!

7. Lady’s Tools

One of the best gifts I ever got was this bag of “Lady’s Tools, ” which I use daily.

Pretty in Pink for a practical and fun housewarming gift idea.

Well, because every gal needs a set of “Lady’s Tools”…

8. Mrs. Meyer’s Kitchen Essentials Set

A new homeowner who loves all things all-natural will love a basket of Mrs. Meyer’s Kitchen Essentials cleaning products as their next housewarming gift.

9. Lemonade Set | Vintage or New

Everybody loves lemonade or iced tea, but not everyone has a nice lemonade set with a pitcher and matching glassware.

How about a vintage or new lemonade set that you can both enjoy together as a great housewarming gift?

Check out the vintage lemonade set I picked up on this Vintage Haul for The Porch.
