Oooh, moving. The sheer act of moving is quite the feat - and when paired with buying and selling a home the whole process is that much more of an *event* let’s say. So what happens when someone you love moves into a new house? You help make the house a home by an amazing housewarming gift, of course! Below are some of our favorite housewarming gift ideas:

Plant Love

Homeowners can never have too many plants! Whether a potted seasonal plant for the porch, a small indoor plant, or a small tree that can be planted in the yard later - your gift will add life to the house and be there (fingers crossed) for the long haul. Not sure where to start? The money tree plant is easy to care for and is said to bring good luck and fortune! 

Such Sentiment

Homes are extremely sentimental - and what better way to play into the sentiment of the new homeowners in your life than by giving them a gift of sweet, sentimental value. Whether it's to literally “stamp” their new address on everything that gets sent out, a custom cutting board or a personalized doormat, it’s delightful for new homeowners to see their own names with their new address.

A Simple Toast

Depending on the style of the new homeowners, a simple champagne toast after closing may be the perfect way to cheers to the new adventures ahead. For a little something extra for the clients to hold on to after the toast, champagne flutes or an ice bucket that can be used for future celebrations is a special something to add in for the clients to take keep. 


A true keepsake to make the house memorialized into a home is a sketch, painting or other artfully done work on the new home. There are limitless options with this from custom ornaments to watercolor paintings. What better way to add to their new wall art than a reminder that this home is their very own! 

A Practical Approach

For some, closing on a home is simply the last hurdle before moving in and getting things up and running as soon as possible. For the most practical types in your life, think about things that will make their new home run smoothly. Different home security products like Nest and Kangaroo make for a settled feeling, while non-toxic, fan-favorite cleaners like Branch Basicsmake for happy, clean homes.  

For Foodies

For some, there’s nothing more exciting than diving into using a new kitchen and appreciate nothing more than luxury kitchen items. For the foodies in your life, think about beautiful olive oils like these from Brightland, life-long lasting Field Cast Iron Skillet, adorable spoon rests, or these amazing salt and pepper grinders. Kitchen dwellers can never turn down a beautiful addition to their domain.

A Little Humor 

Break up the work of creating a new home and bring over something to smile and laugh about. This bathroom guest book is a hilarious addition to a new guest bathroom, and you can never go wrong with punny kitchen towels or cute coffee table books.
