What makes a good housewarming gift?

Housewarming presents don’t have to be big or expensive to be appreciated. In fact, gifts that are useful and serve a purpose are often better received. If you're not sure of your recipient's taste, food hampers and bottles of wine are a safe bet.

Housewarming gifts for couples

If you’re buying a present for a couple, find something they'll both enjoy. It could be a set of wine glasses or coffee mugs, or perhaps a letter tray to help them organise their mail. Feeling creative? Why not bake them a cake and personalise it with a little message.

First home gifts

When it comes to first-time homeowners, practical gifts are often the best. Think about something they wouldn't necessary buy themselves, like a tool set, cookbook or collection of cleaning supplies. Alternatively, you could put together a hamper of useful things like stationery, batteries and light bulbs.

Funny housewarming gifts

Moving house is exciting but also stressful, so a gift that makes them laugh will be greatly appreciated. It could be something unconventional like a quirky gadget, or maybe a novelty item that you know will tickle their funny bone.
