Getting a new home is always an exciting time, whether it's your first apartment or your tenth mortgage—and nothing beats a good housewarming party full of friends, family, food and fun to christen your new abode. A new house means new areas to decorate and organize! If you're on the housewarming party guest list, you don't want to show up empty-handed. Housewarming gifts can span the range from practical to silly, and Hallmark has something for every style. Whether you're looking for bar and entertaining gifts or something for the garden, we're here with tons of housewarming gift ideas.
Anyone new to home cooking, like new graduates and young couples, may appreciate help equipping their kitchen with serving pieces, mugs, wine glasses and other drinkware, kitchen linens and other basics. A traditional, yet good, housewarming gift is a housewarming gift basket. Start with a woven basket, add a cozy blanket or throw pillow, and assemble a selection of home accents they'll enjoy, like candles and a meaningful framed print or plaque. Fill in the gaps with bath goodies like bath bombs, guest soaps and other spa gifts, plus a handful treats, like gourmet chocolates and a nice bottle of wine. Add a congratulations on your new home card and a bow, and you'll have a gift to impress. Our writers even have lots of tips for what to write in a housewarming card.
Homeowners who now have a yard and space for a garden, or even a cute patio or deck, may appreciate sprucing up their outdoor space with planters, garden flags, or even a fun new welcome mat. Another fun gift for new homeowners is a new home ornament. They'll be able to hang it on their tree year after year and always remember their first Christmas spent in their home.
