This year, many people took the plunge into owning a new home. If you didn’t have a chance to throw a big housewarming party for your loved ones, the holidays provide a great opportunity to do something special to celebrate their new home. 

If you’re looking for the best gifts for new homeowners, we’d love to offer some great suggestions your favorite new homeowner will love! These can make wonderful birthday gifts or housewarming gifts, as well.

Edible Housewarming Gifts

Why not combine a housewarming idea with something delicious to enjoy on-the-spot? 

"Home is the nicest word there is.”

Practical Housewarming Gifts by Room

Give a housewarming gift basket full of beautiful, yet practical gifts, any new homeowner would love. Choose a particular room in the home and do a basket for it. Or give a large basket with things for different rooms.

Bedroom gifts

If you want something soft and cozy for the bedroom, try one of these ideas!

Living room gifts

Say, “welcome home” with soft, warm, fuzzies like these or with your favorite scents.

Kitchen gifts

A housewarming gift for the kitchen is always much-appreciated. After all, the kitchen is the heart of the home.

Linens and towels

Maybe some beautiful new matching dish towels or something a bit more customized.

Cookware, cooking appliances, and kitchen tools

If this is a first home, the homeowners may like a bit of help getting their kitchen fully-equipped. Of course, even pros at cooking would love some new kitchen toys, now and then.

Bathroom gifts

Interested in something fluffy or bubbly for your friends or loved-ones to help them relax in a spa-like paradise?

Cleaning supplies gifts

If your homeowner has never kept house before, consider giving a large gift basket with an abundance of helpful cleaning supplies like:

Cleaning products

  • Bathroom cleaner
  • Window cleaner
  • Bona wood floor polish
  • Kitchen cleaner with bleach
  • Garbage disposal cleaner tablets
  • Your favorite furniture polish

Cleaning tools
