Practical Housewarming Gifts that People Actually Want and Need

Housewarming Gifts can be so generic. Sure we all love candles, cheeseboards, and wine but what if we attempted to buy people things that they actually want and need. I will attempt the unlikely in this post and try and to compile a list of housewarming gifts that people actually want.

The key to choosing a great housewarming gift is to pick a gift that is thoughtful and useful. But it is also important not too overstep boundaries by such gifts as choosing decor for another persons home. Try to focus on the person and their career, personality, like and dislikes when thinking of a gift.  Check out the selections that I put together below in order to draw inspiration.

And if all else fails, just buy a damn candle.

Here are the categories below:

  • housewarming gifts for men
  • housewarming gifts for women
  • housewarming gifts for couples
  • housewarming gifts for friends
  • housewarming gift basket
  • housewarming gifts for family
  • funny housewarming gifts
  • luxury housewarming gift

Housewarming Gift for Men

If your gift candidate is like me then they desperately need a hot caffeinated beverage in the morning to slowly resuscitate life back into them.

The problem is that in between sips the temperature keeps cooling down.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of room temperature coffee or tea.

The Cosori Mug and Warmer has got our solution. This stainless steel beverage warming contraption is the Tesla of mug warmers.

It has a digital display and touch buttons allowing you to adjust your beverage temperature up to 131 degrees Fahrenheit. It also has a spill-proof design and works with ceramic, glass, iron, and steel mugs.

Sure this isn’t exclusive to just men, but men do love their gadgets.

Housewarming Gift for Women

Women are usually the ruler of the household and rightfully so. Women are generally more organized and nurturing and and in charge of keeping the home functioning smoothly.

What better to start a life in a new home then to bring more ‘life’ into the home. I’m referring to a living plant and in this case a 9 herb window garden.

It’s a wonderful way to encourage tasty and healthy living and allow your gift getter to grow an indoor garden.

This 34 piece set allows one to grow 9 of the most popular and flavorful herbs in the comfort of their home and help them experiment with new recipes and flavors.

Housewarming Gifts for Couples

Here’s a cool housewarming gift idea for couples that will help them relax and get acclimated in their new home.

A new home doesn’t quite feel like home until you’re curled up in your new place watching a movie. Help your favorite couple get cozy in their new place with this gourmet movie night kit.

The movie night popcorn set comes with 3 different types of popcorn and 5 premium seasons to keep their taste buds on their toes.

This artisanal non-gmo popcorn set is the perfect foodie gift for any couple to enjoy an upgraded movie experience in their own home.

Housewarming Gifts for Friends 

Since this next housewarming gift selection is for friends it’s okay to get a lil edgy and show your sense of humor.

And what better way to accomplish that then with some funny drink coasters.

Sure these white faux marble coasters looks expensive and elegant, but each coaster presents a cheeky message.

This is truly the perfect funny, memorable, and useful gift.

Housewarming Gift Basket

When it comes to receiving gift baskets we are all often left unimpressed.

Whether its due to cheap off=brand snacks or goodies that are much smaller than pictured, they often disappoint.

For this suggestion I decided on a gift basket with a healthy twist. Sure its covered in sugar, but at one point it resembled fruit.

The best part about this premium dry fruit gift basket is once its finished the recipient is left with multipurpose food tray/fruit basket.

Now that’s pretty cool!

Housewarming Gift for Family 

When it comes to choosing a housewarming gift for family members you better make sure it’s a good one.

Well this gift recommendation is is both useful as well as heartwarming.

The rustic wood hanging photo holder is a great way to keep favorite family moments ever-present.

This finely crafted sign and picture holder is easily mounted and durable to last for many memories to come.

Funny Housewarming Gifts

Staying within the theme of useful gifts, this funny housewarming gift is practical and cheerful.

Bring a smile to the face of everyone who walks into the kitchen.

This 4 piece set of cool vegetable print kitchen towels contain bright graphics and clever puns for each style.

A wonderful gift option for all those gift getters with a great sense of humor.

Luxury Housewarming Gift

So far all of the gift recommendations that I have given have been pretty affordable as I understand that most of us are on a budget.

But for all the well-to-do new homeowners or renters out there I have included a luxury housewarming gift.

And what says luxury more than a coming out of a bath to a heated towel. Give the the gift a of a spa experience at home with the luxury bucket towel warmer.

And it doesn’t stop with towels, it can be used for robes, pajamas, blankets etc.

They can probably even throw in some leftovers to heat while they bathe (I’m joking).
