Housewarming gifts for couples

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.
