Classic Housewarming Gifts


    Plants are a wonderful gift that adds life and freshness to a new home. Opt for low maintenance houseplant like succulents, snake plants, spider plant or a beautiful orchid. They enhance the home decor and improve indoor air quality.

    Candles or Diffuser

        A beautifully scented candle or oil diffuser can create a cosy atmosphere in a new home. Choose high quality candles with relaxing scents like lavender, vanilla or sandalwood. They’re perfect for unwinding after a long day of unpacking.

        Kitchen Essentials

            Help stock their kitchen with essentials like a set of high quality knives, a chic cutting board, a beautiful vase or a versatile cast iron skillet. These gifts are both practical and stylish, ensuring they’ll be used and appreciated.

            Coffee Maker

                For coffee lovers, a new coffee maker or a French press can be an excellent gift. Pair it with a bag of gourmet coffee beans for an added touch of luxury.

                Gourmet Treats

                  A basket overflowing with gourmet cheeses, artisan crackers and a bottle of wine is a delightful way to say welcome. It's perfect for those early days when unpacking takes precedence over cooking.

                  Personalised Housewarming Gifts

                  To make your gift extra special, consider adding a personal touch. Personalised gifts show that you’ve put thought into selecting something unique and meaningful. Here are some unique housewarming gift ideas because they are specific to the receiver.

                  Throw Blankets

                    A soft, cosy throw blanket is perfect for those chilly nights or to wrap them in your care when you're not there. Choose one in a neutral colour or a pattern that complements their decor and add a picture, favourite quote or a in joke. It’s a versatile gift that adds warmth and comfort to any room.

                    Custom Doormat

                      Personalised Wall Art

                        Consider gifting a piece of wall art that reflects their interests or commemorates a special location, like a map of their hometown. Adding their name or a meaningful quote can make it even more special.


                          High quality towels are a luxurious gift on their own, but adding their initials or family name takes it to the next level. It’s a simple touch that adds elegance to their bathroom.

                              Other personalised housewarming gifts are keyrings, custom puzzles, picnic blanket, notebooks, apron, wall decor, wall art, tote for shopping, mugs etc
