cast iron skilletBottle of Wine and a Glass Set

The perfect option for the utilitarian gift-giver, a bottle of wine with a glass set is a classic pairing that works double duty: the wine serves as an immediate gift while the glasses turn into a long-term kitchen staple. It’s affordable, practical, and a great way to kick off the housewarming celebrations!

Although once viewed as a historic kitchen ornament, cast iron skillets are making a comeback. With its wide versatility and natural benefits, a new iron skillet will surprise and delight anyone in a new kitchen!



Small & Unique Kitchen Appliances

Quirky countertop kitchen appliances are rarely on the list of things to buy when moving into a new home. This is why they make the perfect housewarming gift. Small appliances like cake pop machines, quesadilla makers, and Panini presses make the perfect opportunity for new homeowners or renters to step away from house projects and enjoy some fun in their new kitchen!


towelsNew Linens

After a long day, there are few things more comforting than a fresh set of fluffy towels or a brand new set of soft, sateen sheets to plop down into. Invest in high-quality towels or sheets as a housewarming gift, and your friend will be sure to thank you!



Home-Related Gift Cards

If you’re in a situation where physical housewarming gifts aren’t the best option, you can’t go wrong with a home-related gift card as a simple but useful present. Moving into a new home often comes with a long list of things to purchase, so gift cards to common home stores like IKEA, Home Depot, or Target might just be your friend’s favorite housewarming gift!


Once you’ve helped your friend or neighbor settle into their new abode, don’t forget — it’s party time!
