10 Great Housewarming Gift Ideas
When it comes to giving a great housewarming gift, finding the right gift can be somewhat challenging, especially if you haven’t yet seen the new home that’s being celebrated.
As real estate professionals, we've seen many of the best and worst housewarming gifts time and time again. Below is a list of 10 great housewarming gifts we think new homeowners are sure to love!
The Original HOTPOP Microwave Silicone Popcorn Popper- Say goodbye to prepacked microwave popcorn! For people who love to curl up to their favorite movie or TV series each night, or for those people who just love a good snack, this silicone popcorn popper is sure to be a big hit. You just add your favorite butter or oil product to the bowl (measurements are provided in the simple instructions), plus some salt and popcorn kernels (we like white kernels the best) to the bowl, cover it with the provided lid and place it in the microwave. In about 4 or 5 minutes you’ll have some of the best homemade popcorn in town! Our users have claimed they’ll never go back to pre-bagged microwave popcorn again!
Personalized Wall Mounted Bottle Opener- Know somebody who likes to entertain? This magnetic wall-mounted bottle opener can be personalized with initials for an extra special touch. Kiss those days of searching for a bottle opener goodbye! The handy magnetic strip catches the tops as well, making this even handier for outdoor areas (think pool patio, porch or just a general ‘hang out’ area in someone’s backyard). For an extra special touch, deliver it with your loved one’s favorite beer too!
Amazon Echo- Know someone who loves technology? The Amazon Echo has been a big hit for our clients over and over again! This handy little gadget will stream music, check the weather for you, order from your favorite Amazon product lists, and even let you call or message just about anyone hands free! Cooks love it in the kitchen for quick measurement conversion answers, recipe ideas & more. Have kids? They’ll love the homework assistance it can offer (think spelling and math problems).
Crock Pot 6 Quart Programmable Slow Cooker- Know somebody who needs more time and less stress when it comes to making dinner during the week? This slow cooker is sure to come in handy and be used year after year. With thousands of simple recipes available online, it takes just minutes to throw the ingredients needed for a good meal into this classic Crock Pot before work. Come home to a hot meal every night! Feel free to gift a good slow cooker cookbook with this as well for the perfect housewarming gift.
Personalized Door Mat- Dress up the entry of a home in an instant with a high quality personalized door mat. There are so many websites that carry beautiful door mats, that it shouldn’t be too hard to find one to match the home or personality of the person you’re shopping for. We love the variety and quality of the ones from Frontgate. A beautiful, lasting housewarming gift that will be used day after day.
Pool Accessories- Know someone who just bought their 1st home with a pool? Trust us when we say they’ll love this handy floating drink cooler as their first housewarming gift! Swimmers won’t have to dash from the pool to grab a cold drink and hosts will enjoy how easy it is to store and deflate this item when it’s not in use!
A Great Coffee Maker- This Ninja Coffee Bar is the perfect housewarming gift for someone that may have purchased a home with a large, beautiful kitchen that’s perhaps missing one key item- a great coffee maker! The ninja coffee bar is one of our favorites, easily & quickly making single serve coffees or a full carafe. It looks great on the counter and meets most coffee lover’s needs- we especially love the built in frother.
Wine Preserver- This handy little tool is a wine enthusiast’s dream come true! It’s simple to use, small and stores easily, and inexpensive. We’ve been using wine preservers like these for years with great success (Realtors love wine? Who knew?). For people who like to enjoy a nice glass of wine, they’ll love how easy it is to reseal an open bottle with this great little gadget. For bonus points, deliver this housewarming gift with a great bottle of vino!
Beautiful Salt & Pepper Shakers- It’s a gift that lasts year after year and looks pretty posh on kitchen counters or a formal dining table. This set of electric and monogrammed salt and pepper shakers is sure to be a memorable housewarming gift that they’ll use day after day. We love the stainless steel finish and the acrylic window on these that lets you see how full they are.
Beautiful Drink Coasters- Check out the geode coasters from Anthropologie, the perfect conversation piece. They’re sold individually, but simply beautiful. These are perfect for the new homeowner who likes to not only entertain, but enjoys a splash of color here and there throughout their home. We recommend a set of 4 or 6 to start, ideally in assorted colors.
