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 been to the new home that’s being celebrated.
As real estate professionals, we wanted to share some of our favorite things we've exchanged with friends and family over the years. Below is a list of 10 great housewarming gifts we think the new homeowners you know are sure to love!
Bumblebee Door Knocker- Give that new home a little razzle dazzle! This is the perfect gift for that person who has everything, that will look beautiful for years to come. This handcrafted, brass door knocker will give your family and friends who have just moved into their dream home that 'wow' factor as soon as their guests get to the door! Birch Lane offers this beautiful accent item in 3 different finishes as well, with easy installation instructions anyone can manage.
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 area, 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 goods 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).
Not So Ordinary Instant Pot- Know somebody who needs more time and less stress when it comes to making dinner during the week? Kiss the Slow Cooker goodbye and splurge on one of these (If you don't already know it, an Instant Pot cook meals like roasts, soups, veggies, etc in MINUTES...not hours like a slow cooker). Skip the boring black & silver Instant Pots and take it up a notch with something a little more colorful! Offered in 3 different colors on Amazon, this gift is the perfect addition to anyone's kitchen. Bonus points if you deliver it with a cookbook or cards with your favorite quick and easy recipes.
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.
Sangria Pitcher- Know someone who loves entertaining al fresco? This handmade sangria pitcher from the Historic Columbia Restaurant is hand painted and crafted in Spain and adds a touch of beautiful Old Florida style to any tabletop. You can purchase these in the links and have them shipped or use this as a great excuse to visit one of our 2 local locations to purchase one in person.
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, stores easily, and is inexpensive. We’ve been using wine preservers like these for years with great success (Realtors love wine? Shocking, right?). 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 that will keep it fresh for up to a week! 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.
