Moving into a new home is a big milestone that deserves to be celebrated. Whether you’re moving to a new city, new neighbourhood or just down the block, the moving process is exciting and of course, a little bit stressful. If you have friends or family members that are moving, they’ll likely want to throw a housewarming party once everything is unpacked. Gift them something thoughtful to commemorate this next step in their lives. We’ve come up with 15 creative housewarming gift ideas everyone is sure to love!

5 Housewarming Gift Ideas for Singles

1, A New City Restaurant Guide
If the new homeowner has moved to a new city or neighbourhood, creating a restaurant guide for them is a thoughtful, wonderful gift. It’s tough to know where to get good food when you’re in a new area, so a compilation of the best nearby restaurants will be greatly appreciated!

2. Planters
A plant in a stylish planter is a great housewarming gift! Plants add warmth and comfort to a home, bringing a part of nature inside. They liven up a space and can make a home’s ambiance refreshed and vibrant.

3. Candle
Candles are a quintessential housewarming gift, and for good reason. They add a cozy ambiance to the home and fill it with an intoxicating aroma. Choose a scent you know they’ll love and make sure to stay away from anything too strong, as some people are sensitive to intense smells. This ‘new home’ scent by Homesick is sure to be a hit.

4. Ceramic Vase
A beautiful ceramic vase is another wonderful housewarming gift. It adds style to the home and can be placed anywhere from the dining table to the kitchen island, coffee table or bedside table. It’s always nice to get a piece of decor as a gift and if the new homeowner loves to buy flowers, a vase is the perfect present!

5. Cookbook
If the new homeowner loves spending time in the kitchen, a cookbook is the perfect gift for their new home. Gift them a cookbook with recipes you know they’ll love and that suit their food preferences. For example, if they’re vegan, make sure to get them a vegan cookbook like ‘Oh She Glows for Dinner’, or if their favourite place to travel is Vietnam, get them a cookbook filled with Vietnamese recipes such as ‘Vietnamese Food Everyday.’

5 Housewarming Gift Ideas for Couples

1. Personalized Charcuterie Board
A charcuterie board is a really lovely housewarming gift to give to a couple, and even better if it’s personalized with their names or the date they moved in! A charcuterie board is ideal if the couple loves to host, so they have a gorgeous platter to lay out meats and cheeses for their guests.

2. City Map Art Print
If the couple has moved to a new city, a sleek art print map of their new locale will help them celebrate their new home. Another option is gifting them a map from the city they just moved from so they always have a piece of home.

3. Monogrammed Mugs
Mugs are always a great gift, but to make them a little more significant, opt for monogrammed mugs with the first letter of their names. Moving into a home is a big milestone so adding the extra thought will make your gift that much more special.

4. Marble Wine Cooler
If the couple you’re gifting to loves their wine, a marble wine cooler will look stunning on their table or bar cart. It’s an elegant way to keep wine and champagne cold and can also double as a utensil holder or flower vase when there’s no wine to be cooled.

5. Custom House Portrait
Whether the couple has moved into their starter home or their forever home, a custom portrait of their house will be a very special gift. If they ever move, it will commemorate their first home, and if they stay put, it will be a memory from when they first moved in.

5 Housewarming Gift Ideas for Families

1. Return Address Stamp
A customized family name stamp is such a great gift! They’ll never have to write out their return address with this nifty, stylized gift. Available in multiple colours, you can opt for classic black or add a bit of personality to their stamp!

2. Cozy Couch Throw
Help make their movie and popcorn nights cozier with a velvet couch throw. Not only will it keep them warm, it will also add style and luxury to their living space. Opt for a neutral colour so it’s sure to match their furniture.

3. Home Sweet Home Doormat
Help make their entryway more welcoming with a ‘home sweet home’ coconut coir door mat.It will look great, and it will also capture dirt, moisture and other particles before they get traced through their new home.

4. Air Fryer
Air fryers are all the rage these days. They make mealtimes so much easier, which is perfect for a busy family. Not only can you air fry foods, you can also use the appliance to roast vegetables, cook meat and bake cookies. A healthy alternative to deep frying, air fryer recipes have less fat and grease and are more nutritious over all.

5. Record Player
There’s nothing better than having weekend breakfast together while listening to your favourite record. A record player is an amazing housewarming gift for a family, helping them bring music into their new home. Throw in a few records to get their collection started for an added touch!
