We’ll be the first to admit it: Finding the perfect housewarming gifts is no easy feat. While popping by their place with a bottle of wine is a welcome gesture, we know you can do better. Should you err on the side of practicality, say with something that will be immediately useful to them and help them with any projects they take on? Or do you opt for decorative — a little picture frame or greenery to cozy up the space? Consider the new homeowner you’re buying for, but either is a solid bet to help them move in, since wishlist fixes and decorating often are among the last things to get done.
With that in mind, we’ve gathered a selection of housewarming gifts in both veins. Whether the newly propertied friend or family member you’re buying for is a plant lover, a DIYer, or a newlywed, you should find something for them here. Our list features a mix of fun, sentimental, and practical finds including pet-friendly plants, gift cards to make meal prep one less thing for them to worry about while they settle in, and unique finds that make their home truly their own.
