Moving is stressful and expensive, shopping for a housewarming gift shouldn’t be. Think of housewarming gifts as something small that the host wouldn’t get themselves. This can be a nice bottle of wine or flowers, but if you want something more unique and memorable, we have some budget-friendly ideas for you.
Personalized Stationery or Address Stamp
Save your hosts time by gifting them a custom address stamp featuring their new address. The stamp can feature their pet or something the host enjoys. Due to the custom nature, these tend to take a few weeks to create and ship, but are well-worth the wait. Add personalized or unique stationery and fancy pens for an added touch. Check out our favorite custom stamp shop here.
Doormats are the first impression of a home. What better way to help your friend warm up their new house than with a unique doormat that matches their style? Bonus, because they will think of how thoughtful you are every time they come home.
Nothing quite says party like a good charcuterie spread. Cheese boards look fancy but are often only priced around $20. Cheese boards are the perfect addition to every kitchen, but not something that the host typically thinks to purchase for themselves. If it’s a housewarming party, be sure to bring some cheese and crackers to impress all the guests.
Echo Dot or Google Home Mini
If you want more of a techy gift, an Echo Dot or Google Home Mini could be the perfect solution. These smart speakers will provide the host with a hands free voice assistant to help around the house.
Every house needs a set of really good board games, why not start their collection strong with your favorite? You could choose a nostalgic board game sure to ignite memories or select a new one that you can play together.
Local Food Basket
Is your host new to town? The perfect way to welcome them is with a basket of food local to the area. You can never go wrong with a Michigan-themed basket featuring Faygo and Better Made chips.
Whether your friend is moving into a new house or an apartment, these gifts are the perfect way to make it feel like home. What is your go-to housewarming gift?
