When a family member or friend moves into a new home, it can be hard to know what to bring them the first time you visit. While there’s nothing wrong with presenting the new homeowner with a candle or a nice bottle of wine, you may want to share a more meaningful gift, especially if that person is a big part of your life. While there might be more things to consider than you originally thought, a great rule to follow for housewarming gifts is to keep it between $25-$50, and make sure you don’t find yourself purchasing anything too extravagant. Keep reading for ideas that will help you nail the art of housewarming!

Start in the Kitchen

If you are hunting for the perfect item to give to a first-time homeowner, look no further than the kitchen! A nice cookbook, some serving utensils or even a beautiful vase filled with fresh flowers are the perfect addition to your loved one’s new space. When you buy something for the kitchen, chances are that these new homeowners will be happy to have an upgraded or duplicate of an item more so than they would anywhere else in the house, as items used here experience a lot of daily wear and tear.

Unique and Bold

Are the people you’re buying for known for their nontraditional sense of style? A customized address plate or welcome sign for the front of their house may be the way to go. There are plenty of options for adding personality to these gifts, and they are sure to bring a welcoming touch of personality and style to the front of your loved one’s new home! 

Green Thumb

Plants are always a great gift for the people in your life with a green thumb. Whether you choose something heartier like a succulent or a more temperamental plant like an orchid, plants liven up any room in a home! Just be sure that whatever type of plant you purchase, the new homeowner is prepared to care for. When taken care of properly, this gift will bring your loved one joy for years to come!

Celebrating the purchase of a new home doesn’t have to be an overwhelming event! No matter what you choose for the loved one in your life, they will surely appreciate you thinking of them and taking the time to spoil them with a gift.
