A new house is a blank canvas. It’s a way to start a new chapter, re-imagine a lifestyle and in some cases, re-invent an identity. In that vein, a housewarming gift is more than just a social obligation—it’s a way to support a new homeowner as they embark upon a new phase of their life. The right gift can be a symbol of support or encouragement—or, in some cases, a way of preserving a small part of their old selves as they look towards their future. If you’re looking to support a loved one as they set up a new household, this gifting guide should help you narrow down on the ideal present.


The Art Lover
If the new homeowner happens to have an eye for design, a piece of art or décor is a great way to catch their attention. The rule of thumb is to pick something elegant but minimal, so you don’t run the risk of clashing with their personal aesthetic. Original artworks are a sure win—not only are they a vibrant and thoughtful addition to any room, they’re also a good investment for the future.


The Home Chef
Help your foodie friend build the kitchen of their dreams by gifting them a unique appliance or set of tools they’d never think to buy themselves. If they’re just starting to experiment in the kitchen, give them something that makes the task fun—and if they’re a veteran food-lover who knows exactly what they’re doing, get them a specialised item to complete their collection.


The Perpetual Host
A new home is a great excuse to invite people over—and a homeowner who loves to host is always appreciative of designer serve-ware, eccentric bar tools and conversation-starting curios. The key is to make sure your pieces are functional, elegant, and easy to store—because unlike décor, most serve-ware only makes the occasional appearance.


For the Kids
Young couples with kids will always appreciate a gift that helps make the new house feel more like home for the kids. Toys and furniture pieces that kids can call their own give them a sense of ownership of the space—plus, it makes you the “fun” aunt or uncle! Depending on the kids’ age, you could get them something fun, something educational—or something that will stay with them as they grow older.


The Fun Stuff
Every home deserves a few knick-knacks—things you come home to that make life a little more fun, or your day-to-day a little easier. Sometimes, the simplest gifts are those that one would never think to buy for themselves, but that make all the difference. It could be something that helps families organise their days better—or it could help a freelancer work better from home. A thoughtful and functional gift will always find a welcome home.
