40 Best Housewarming Gift Ideas of 2023- Gifts for New Home

Chances are pretty high that you know someone who recently moved. Whether you have new neighbors on your block, your friends are christening a new vacation house in the mountains or at the beach, or your sister just got her first apartment in the city, you're going to want to give them a proper welcome with a housewarming present—especially if they're hosting a party to celebrate their new digs.

"Think of [a housewarming gift] as a way to infuse a warm energy into a home," says Nellie Butler, founder of Mariée Ami, an event planning company in the Southeast. It doesn't need to be anything fancy—like any gift, when it comes to a housewarming present, it's really the thought that counts. Even a heartfelt card, bottle of wine, or bouquet of flowers is a perfectly suitable way to say "congratulations."

Of course, there are plenty of other great housewarming gifts if you want to go the extra mile. Most importantly, you want to look for products that are useful. Your loved one is already dealing with mountains of boxes to unpack, so a practical gift that will make their everyday life a little easier is one to give. Another option? Swap their everyday products—like sheets, towels, hand soap, and candles—for options that are a little more luxurious.

Want more specific ideas for the best housewarming gifts to bring over to the party? Ahead are 40 unique ideas that they'll use and adore for years to come. We found something to suit everyone and every budget, so you're bound to find just the right thing. You may even find something special for your own home while you're browsing.
