How to find the perfect housewarming gift

How to find the perfect housewarming gift

First of all, of course, you must relate to your recipient. To make it a little easier, here are some questions you can start by asking yourself.

- Is it a housewarming gift for a couple or a single person?

- Has anyone recently moved in together?

- What kind of house is it? Apartment or house?

- If you have been there before: how is the current interior?

Once you have answered these questions, it makes the decision making process much easier for you. If it is a person or a couple you know very well (like maybe a brother, sister or a close friend/friends) it is easier to come up with something delicious that they are missing in their home.

On the other hand, it can be a challenge if you know the recipient less well, and thus do not know what they are missing. Here you can go the safe route with something sweet to eat or perhaps a good bottle of wine, it always takes cones!

If the recipient is a younger person or someone who is moving out for the first time, then there is a high probability that there is something missing in their home. There, you can give some plates, cups, mugs, cutlery or other things for either the kitchen or the interior.

If it's an elderly person, there probably aren't any practical things that they haven't already acquired. Here you can also take the safe gift of experience, such as a bottle of wine, some chocolate or a personal gift basket

How much should you spend on a housewarming gift?

There are no exact rules on how much you should spend on a gift for the new mover, but it is generally a small or medium-sized gift that in one way or another contributes to the newly moved place. You can also easily give a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine, especially if it is not one of your closest acquaintances.

Moving to a new place itself is not the biggest event we face, so you don't need to stress too much about the price of the gift, there will probably be another opportunity when they move again ;).

When should you give a housewarming gift?

People move many times during their lives, and it's not always easy to get a housewarming gift. A good rule of thumb to follow is; if you have been invited to a housewarming, bring a housewarming gift.

It can of course be an invitation to a definite party, but also if a couple of friends have invited you for coffee or lunch in their new apartment/home. The gift is of course given to the host(s) when you arrive at their new accommodation for the first time.

If, on the other hand, you are invited to an event at the home of someone who has recently moved, but has not been there yet, it may seem a little strange if you bring a gift without it being planned that the event has something to do with the move. So avoid doing that.

The practical housewarming gift

The best housewarming gift is one that the recipient can really use. It is really about knowing what they already have and what they need to acquire if you want to impress with your gift.

Nobody needs their third grater, so it would give you a huge advantage if you know something practical that the host lacks in his home. A classic option is something for the kitchen that they lack, it can be plates, cups, mugs, cutlery, bowls and many other things.

The advantage of these kinds of gifts is that they are things that everyone needs no matter what, and it is not exactly cheap to have to fill a kitchen as a newly moved in. Therefore, it will also be a super safe choice when it comes to your gift, as long as you know it is something the recipient lacks.
