Moving into a new home together is a huge decision to make for a couple. It’s both exciting and overwhelming. Housewarming gifts are the perfect gesture for stressed movers who are coordinating an endless to-do list.
Couples moving in together have a lot of work ahead of them—especially when it comes to their belongings. It’s not as simple as moving their stuff from one place to another. It includes combining and simplifying.
You want to send the couple a gift that is fun, useful, and meaningful. If you’re struggling with ideas, here’s our list of housewarming gift ideas for couples:
A new place comes with foreign and unfamiliar feelings. One of the best ways to help them feel right at home is a unique and personalized gift. Customized houseware is more common and affordable than ever. And the possibilities are endless. Here are some great gifts to customize:
Commemorate a momentous occasion with custom artwork. Many artists utilize their skills to turn a photo into a piece of art to decorate the couple’s new home. With various styles and pricing options, there are several ways to beautifully depict their relationship.
Nothing is more inviting than the right doormat. With custom messages, you can welcome guests to the couple's new home with a personalized message such as “The Smith Family” and the year they moved in.
Guests shouldn’t find it difficult to identify the couple’s new home. Custom house numbers that are stylish and easy to read are great for marking territory and drawing in guests. Not to mention it boosts curb appeal.
Help the couple host parties in style. Charcuterie boards are a hungry guest favorite because they overflow with delicious appetizers or snacks. By adding the couple’s name(s), not only will the board dazzle guests, but it also decreases the possibility of getting lost in the bustle of parties.
Whether it is a night together or hosting a party, drinkware accessories can be something fun to add to any occasion. These are some fun housewarming gifts for alcohol connoisseurs:
Help the couple carry their wine in style. Wine totes come in handy to keep the bottles cool when traveling to any gathering. Customize the wine tote to add a personalized touch to your gift.
You can never have too many glasses. There are so many styles depending on the occasion and drink. And they make an excellent gift. Pick a style of glasses based on the couple and their personality.
No homeowner likes to see water rings on their tables. Similar to wine glasses, there are so many coasters to choose from. The color, design, and material will all depend on the couple’s style.
Impress the couple and their guests with a custom wine label. There are so many designs to choose from; create a label with their names or their picture. Find something funny or commemorate a special occasion.
Can’t decide on one thing to get the couple? A packaged deal is something anyone can appreciate. Gift baskets are best when they have a fun theme the recipient will use. Here are some of our favorite gift basket ideas:
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home. If the couple enjoys cooking or baking, they will appreciate having all the utensils needed to make something delicious. For this gift basket, pick a color theme and throw in several useful kitchen utensils. Utensils could include measuring cups, towels, spoons, spatula, and so on. For the basket to store all the items in, buy a mixing bowl or colander.
Who doesn’t love a late night of movie-watching? Provide everything the couple needs for a cozy movie night. Items could include their favorite candies, a movie, candles, and popcorn all in a popcorn bowl.
Wine & Cheese
Back to the wine lovers. Nothing goes together like wine and cheese. In this basket, include a variety of cheeses and a wine bottle in addition to salami, fruits, or bread. Package it all up in a cute basket or wooden crate.
This one is for wellness fanatics. Instead of a calorie-packed gift, a basket filled with healthy snacks will satisfy the cravings of health-conscious couples. Items could include fresh fruits, dried fruits, nuts, high protein snacks, farmers market buys, or gluten-free foods.
We all want to do our part in keeping the planet healthy. Here are some housewarming gifts for a warming planet:
Plants are an excellent gift because they provide so many benefits to their owners. Not only are they an eco-friendly gift, but they also help clean the air and are known to boost moods. However, not everyone is good at keeping plants alive, so consider low-maintenance plants that are difficult to kill and require little attention.
Gifts using recycled glass can make beautiful and useful house decor. There are so many options to choose from: mason jars, bird feeders, glasses, serving trays, and so much more.
Bamboo grows rapidly and is highly sustainable, making it ideal for those looking to protect the environment. There are several eco-friendly bamboo gifts to choose from cutting boards, cups, utensils, bowls, serving trays, and more.
