Whether you’re welcoming a new neighbor or helping a friend move, it’s always fun to celebrate a new home with a gift. Here are some great housewarming gift ideas and our favorite housewarming greeting cards from Falling Leaf!
Housewarming Gift Ideas for Men
While men may not make too much of a fuss over moving to a new place, that doesn’t mean they won’t appreciate a gift! Consider contributing something fun, such as a cheap record player or a vinyl album, a cool bottle opener, or something to commemorate their favorite sports team.
Keep in mind that men may tend to value practicality over design, so their new place might not have much beyond the bare essentials. If this is the case, try to find something they may not have thought to buy themselves, such as small kitchen gadgets. At the same time, while most men would welcome a gift card to a home improvement store such as Lowe’s or Home Depot, many would also enjoy a gift card to a store they may not visit as often, such as Pier 1 Imports. Your gift can be the first step to helping them realize how they’ll want to start decorating!
Great Housewarming Gifts for Women
Women often put a bit more thought into how they plan to decorate before moving into a new home. They might already have matching furniture sets or specific color palettes in mind for each room. Try to find a gift that complements their style, such as a nice lamp or a unique wall print. Ask her about the colors of the walls or her thoughts on the interior design so you can find the perfect match.
As with men, women may be missing certain items when moving. Perhaps they have the essential cooking ware but no tools. Giving a gift card to a store that sells both decorative and functional items, such as Walmart, Target, or Bed, Bath & Beyond, is a great housewarming gift.
Housewarming Gift Ideas for Couples
When shopping for couples, try to find a nice housewarming gift that combines their interests or symbolizes their life together. For example, a potted plant can symbolize the love and patience it takes to make a relationship work. A decorative item, such as our Hibiscus & Impatiens Wall Art, represents the beauty of two lives coming together.
Housewarming Gifts for a Family
Families are always fun to shop for because we get to include the kids! And if they have pets, consider including them as well! Look for something that the entire family can share and enjoy. A board game, a movie, or even a retro video game system (which you may be able to find cheap online or in a local resale shop) are all great housewarming gift ideas for a family.
For a First Home
Celebrate the momentous event of purchasing a first home with a housewarming gift that will be around for years to come! Whether it’s something for the yard, such as windchimes or a bird feeder, or inside the house, look for something beautiful and durable.
Pair two or more wall prints, such as our Giant Madagascar and Royal Blue Butterfly Wall Art, to make a lovely decorative gift. Or consider pairing one of these prints with our Butterfly Drink Coaster Set—another classic gift that never goes out of style!
For the greeting card, consider something elegant from our Stained Glass Windows collection!
