It isn’t all that easy finding the right gift for your family and friends. Here’s our list of housewarming gift ideas that we think everyone could appreciate!
Give some life, give a houseplant
Plants have a special way of making any space feel fresh, lively, and beautiful. They are a simple gift – they agree with all types of decor styles. Your gift will help accentuate your friend’s space regardless of their setup and the good news is that you have lots of low-maintenance options to choose from:
- Lucky bamboo
- Spider plants
- Aloe vera
Plants need some sort of upkeep, so make it easy for the new homeowner. Attach a short decorative note of instructions on how to care for it instead of having them do the chore of researching on top of caring for the plant. By adding a note with care instructions, it becomes a small gesture that makes your housewarming gift that much more thoughtful.
Fresh goods gift basket
You can’t do wrong with food! Prepare a basket with some fresh fruit and vegetables along with some charcuterie favourites such as jams, crackers, bread, cheeses, and ham. Get your other friends together to share and enjoy the new milestone.
Cool smart home tech accessories
Smart home devices like Google Home, Amazon Echo Dot with Alexa, smart speakers, and security cameras are great tools that can make your day to day convenient. From smart thermostats to being able to change lighting with a voice command, tech accessories are a great addition to the new home experience and presents itself as a practical housewarming gift.
Lend a helping hand to babysit their kids & pets
Moving is no easy feat. It gets stressful when you’ve got a handful going on – coordinating with your mover, expenses, packing, unpacking, and having to take care of the little ones. If the new homeowner has kids or pets, extend an arm by offering to take care of them for a day or two so they can focus on facilitating the move. You could also ask to help out on unpacking. Volunteering your time will make their transition easier and is something your friend will be indefinitely grateful for.
