house warming gift ideas

Buying a new home is such a special time filled with excitement, pride, and if I’m honest, a bit of stress! When we bought our first home it was nothing short of chaos. We had a two-month-old, hardly any sleep, and a new home that needed a lot of TLC!

It took a lot of help from friends and family to accomplish this herculean task of moving and preparing our new home. To help ease the burden a bit and show support to your family or dear friends who are embarking on this new adventure of home owning, it is a wonderful idea to gift them something for their new sanctuary and commemorate this special accomplishment.

If you are struggling to try to find the right gift for this monumental occasion in your loved one’s life, no worries! Below I have a great variety of house warming gift ideas under $50 that they will surely enjoy!

These are ideas for either that friend with a sense of humor, your sister who has a love of French bulldogs, or even the spa enthusiast in your life. The choices range from practical, and luxurious, to silly! Plus, I’m sure they are getting enough bottles of wine, or maybe not. Did I mention buying a home is stressful?

15 House Warming Gift Ideas

1. Frenchie The French Bulldog Cheese Board

house warming gift ideas

This is the perfect gift for the French Bulldog lover in your life! It combines the trend of charcuterie boards along with the popular dog breed. Heck, even your average dog lover can appreciate this. I mean just look at it!

This adorable board also comes in two different sizes, 12 inches, and 15 inches, and is made of natural bamboo. As a hostess of many wine and cheese parties, I had to get one myself!

2. Blue Tooth Shower Speaker

This is great for music lovers. When I came across this I immediately hit “add to cart”. I would literally have my phone sitting outside the shower with my playlist going on shuffle. Now, I have this nifty waterproof speaker on my shower’s shelf.

Of course, it is not limited to the shower. It is great to bring with you on a beach day, picnics, virtually anywhere. It can also make calls, though I don’t use that feature. I’m just here for the music. :)

It also comes in a variety of colors. The rose gold is my personal favorite. The sound quality is great and you can listen to music for up to 15 hours! Recharging is only 3-4.

3. Personalized Cutting Board

Everyone can appreciate a personalized cutting board! Even if you don’t know your way around a kitchen, a personalized cutting board adds a beautiful, rugged elegance to your kitchen counter!

This board not only makes a great housewarming gift, but it also is perfect for a newlywed couple and an anniversary gift.

4. Portable Fire Pit

When I first saw this I thought, “Where was this 20 years ago?!” At the time, I didn’t have a nice fire pit to roast smores in so I used a stove burner to cook my marshmallows. Don’t judge me.

This changes things. It makes for such a unique and cool gift. Even if they aren’t into smores like that, it is a stylish addition to every home and adds a festive ambiance!

5. Seven Chakra Bonsai Tree

For the spiritually inclined loved ones in your life, there is a chakra bonsai tree! They have 24 different options spanning from amethyst, quartz, and jade. Go ahead and add some good vibes and positive energy to their new abode!

6. Window Herb Garden

This is a great unique gift idea for a plant lover or even a culinary enthusiast. I love this because it already comes with everything you need for your herb collection and there are a total of NINE different herbs to grow!

Adding fresh herbs to your dish is no comparison to dried herbs from a grocery store.

7. The Humor Candle

Anyone who has a bit of a crude sense of humor and is a dog owner will appreciate this gag gift! And not to mention, it is practical. This candle is made of 100% soy wax and is lavender/vanilla scented.

Now if only I can find one that says, “When The Cat Poops”….if you know, you know.

8. Teabloom Flowering Tea

Calling all tea brewers! This tea set adds a fresh take and a new experience with brewing tea. You can create Instagram-worthy teas with this gift as there are actual flower blooms in it!

I really like the variety of blooms that it comes with (12 total) and how fragrant/flavorful the teas are. It gets me out of just drinking the plain ol’ Chamomile tea and trying something new and fun.

9. Chunky Knit Blanket

This gift isn’t as interest-specific as others on this list. It is pretty universal, I mean, who doesn’t love cozying up to a super soft blanket? Plus chunky knit throws are trending right now. This one comes in 4 different sizes and 5 different colors.

I am a blanket connoisseur myself. I can not stop in a home goods store and NOT touch/feel the blankets there and buy a couple for myself! One for the couch, the bed, and the throw basket for good measure. This is a great way to add some coziness as a housewarming gift!

10. Spa Robe

This one is for the spa-goers or anyone who likes to lounge around after a hot bath and drink a glass of wine or tea with a mud mask on. *Raises hand*

Plus it’s lightweight making it perfect for traveling on vacation!

11. 9 in 1 Deluxe Vegetable Chopper

Now if you want to give a house warming gift that is the epitome of kitchen practicality, this is it! Most of us do not boast of perfect, FAST, and precise chopping skills. But this does! I wish I had thought to add this bad boy to my wedding registry.

I love adding fresh vegetables to my meals, but I hate chopping them up as I’m just not good at it and I’m sure it doubles the time it takes to cook something.

This handy gadget does the most! It is a lemon squeezer, dicer, peeler, spiralizer, egg slicer, and zoodle maker. It should be a staple in every kitchen in my opinion.

12. Wooden Salt and Pepper Set

This house warming gift is again another nod to those who prefer making a home-cooked meal. There is something that just feels so official about grinding fresh pepper from a wooden grinder onto your plate.

*Insert chef’s kiss* In addition, the sleek wooden design looks great in any kitchen or dining room!

13. Coffee Mug Set

Ah, the classic coffee mug gift set. Hey, when it works, it works. This set is specifically for the house warming gift occasion. In addition to the black and white colors, it also comes in a pretty pink and white marble scheme.

With the “New Home, New Adventures and New Memories” scripture, they will always remember the unforgettable day. I also love the cute gold stirring spoons that it comes with.

14. Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls With Silicone

As another gift idea on the practical side, these stainless steel mixing bowls are a kitchen must! They include silicone bottoms so no slipping off the countertops, lids that will not warp or deform, AND come with an additional eight mixing tools to get the job done!

I like the fact that it has 7 different bowl sizes. I’m always thinking I need another mixing bowl or one in a slightly smaller size, etc. This entire set gets ya covered and for $40; shut up and take my money!

15. Fondue Pot Set

Come on, who doesn’t love fondue?? This stainless steel fondue set is perfect for anyone who loves dipping their food in cheese, chocolate, and caramel to their heart’s content!

Or even a loved one who loves hosting parties, this is always a party favorite. Plus it has 6 color-coded forks so no one shares the cooties. And with it having a non-stick surface, cleaning is a breeze. Nobody likes a chore.


So there ya have it folks! 15 great house warming gifts for your loved ones that will set you apart and break away from the predictable bottle of wine!
