27 Practical House Warming Gift Ideas

Someone close to you bought or rented a new place? That’s a big thing for them. Buying a house or an apartment is the biggest purchase most people do in their lifetimes. It’s wise of you to search for something practical as a housewarming present.

If the person bought the place, chances are that they are now rather low on cash and only spend on the most vital items for their home. This is where you come in. By giving them some smaller and lower cost items, that are still practical, you can add a lot of value to the new homeowner/renter. 

Plus, if the gift is used often, you as the person who gave the gift, will come to their minds often in a positive way. This might turn into more invites. So choose wisely 🙂 

#1 Marble Wine Cooler

No ice needed with this thing. 

It looks elegant, is made of high quality marble and is actually very practical. The product fits most wine and champagne bottles. 

If your friend loves wine or champagne, this might be a really good option. 


#2 A Beaufitul Japanese Teapot

Why not give the gift of a stylish Japanese kettle. It comes with an infuser and a you can choose from a range of different colors.

It’s likely that they already have a teapot, but I doubt it’s as beautiful as this particular cast iron kettle. 

Cast iron helps to retain the heat for an extended period of time. It also protects the pot from any potential damages as it’s very sturdy. 

#3 Practical Fruit Bowl

This gift might come in handy. While doing research for this topic, I ordered it for myself as soon as I saw it. 

It’s perfect for storing different kinds of fruit and vegetables. 

The gift might be appreciated the most in a household that is big on eating healthy. Or if they’re not, you may help them start on this path.

#4 A Pair of Comfortable Slippers

This is a feet-warming present. A quality pair of memory-foam slippers to keep your friends’ feet warm. 

Waffle knit uppers keep their feet from sweating and the shoes odor-free.

You can add a matching female version of the product to make the gift a tad bit more expensive or if the gift is targeted to a couple.


#5 Personalized Family Hobby Art Picture

This is something out of the ordinary. 

It’s a customizable picture, where you can set the skin tone, hobbies, and characters on the picture. 

It isn’t the most practical gift. However, decorating empty walls is always a headache. If you think of it this way, it is practical :).

I mean, I would be more than happy to get a gift like this, wouldn’t you? 

#6 A Beautiful Soap Gift Set

If one of the receivers of the gift is a female, it’s very likely that she will absolutely love this gift. If not, it’s probably best to keep on scrolling. 

These soaps are high quality, look very beautiful and are well presented. Also, each soap has a different fragrance. 

These french soaps are free from toxic chemicals.

Definitely a very thoughtful and a practical gift.

#7 Modern Water Carbonator

This beaufitul device can turn regular water into sparkling water. No more need to buy sparkling water from store, if you can make it in your home. 

Also, it looks very nice and is a nice addition to any kitchen. 

It is made of stainless steel and it comes with a reusable glass bottle. 

#8 Stylish Electric Kettle

The Cosori electric kettle is made out of stainless steel and see-through borosilicate glass.

LED lights will notify you of when the water turns hot or when it’s still cold. 

It looks minimalistic and is made out of high quality materials and is very easy to clean.

The product has a very high rating on Amazon with feedback from more than five thousand people.


#9 Compact Cheese and Tapas Board w. Knives

This cheese and tapas board folds into a compact wedge shape that is easy to store. 

This clever item is made out of bamboo. It also has small inbuilt storage for knives. 

A very practical gift for someone that likes to host guests and entertain people. 

Plus it’s rather unique, so it’s unlikely that they already have it. 

#10 Microwave Rice Cooker

I mean who isn’t in a hurry these days? This product is aimed at people short on time. 

It enables you to cook perfect rice every time with the help of your microwave. You just have to fill the cooker with rice and water, put it into a microwave and return to a nice fluffy rice dish. 

It’s also dishwasher safe so it’s also easy to clean and it can cook other grains as well.

#11 Homesick Candles

If the person you’re giving the gift to has moved in from out of state, it’s likely that they might be missing their home state. 

This is where these homesick candles could come in handy. Each state’s candle has a different scent – unique to that specific state. 

The candles are hand made out of soy wax and they’re made locally in the United States.

#12 Wine Aerator Carafe

It’s a high quality wine aerator that helps to keep leftover wine fresh and drinkable even after extended periods of time. 

With the help of this carafe, you don’t have to throw away that expensive wine that you just couldn’t finish. 

Simply put the carafe on top of your wine and flip it over to fill the carafe. Then you can serve the wine straight from the carafe or reverse the process to refill the bottle. 

#13 Minimalistic and Stylish Blanket Shelf

This blanket shelf can add style to any home. It’s minimalistic and practical at the same time. 

It’s made in Portland, Oregon. The material is black American walnut, finished with natural oils and wax. 

The shelf is easy to install so no need to spend money on a handyman. 

#14 Rapid Wine & Beverage Cooler

This neat machine can cool wines in only six minutes. It’s also possible to heat baby bottles with this thing. 

How it works is that it turns the bottle and sprays it with ice cold water. You can partially open the lid for longer wine bottles. 

So overall a very practical gift for someone who likes to have some wine from time to time. 

#15 Cocktail Shaker Set - 11 Pieces

The stainless steel cocktail set will give the person all the tools that pro cocktail makers use for making high-quality cocktails at home. 

This gift could also be useful to you as you can now demand for more advanced cocktails on your next visit or even ask for a cocktail party. 

If you want, you can also add a cocktail cookbook along with the set to give them some good ideas and recipes.

#16 Iconic American Desserts Cookbook

Another gift idea that can also serve you as the gift-giver. 

Stella Parks’ Bravetart book features the most iconic American desserts recipes.

It was named the best baking book of the year by the New York Times, The Washington Post and many many other reputable magazines.  

The book has an average rating of 4.8/5 starts on Amazon at over 600 reviews. 

#17 "I Hope You Told Us You Were Coming Over" Doormat

A funny little doormat to make people think twice before they knock on your door. 

Especially useful for introverts 😀

And if they start to use it, make sure to let them know the next time before you plan to visit. 

#18 A Quality Air Fryer

If the person you’re giving the gift to does not already have an air-fryer, you can possibly make them very happy. 

Why so? An air fryer is a brilliant product. You can cook food without oil and it’ll similar to it’s oil-fried alternatives with significantly less calories. 

This particular product offers great value for money and in terms of practicality, your gift will likely be one of the top gifts they’ll receive. 

#19 XL Cheese and Snacks Board

If the gift recipients like to host parties and get-togethers, this will be a very useful gift for them. 

It will help to make their cheese and snack displays more stylish and fun. 

Some of the best gifts are the ones that you would like to get yourself and this surely checks that box for me. 

#20 Stylish Snack Carafes

These elegantly designed carafes are made so that your hands won’t touch the food when it’s coming out. 

As the product is rather cheap, you can add some snacks to your gift to fill the carafes with. Some M&M’s would look great in these. 

#21 Personalized Wine Serving Tray

Does the recipient like to drink wine? Are they kind enough to serve it to their guest as well? 

Well in that case, this tray might come in handy. They can now bring four glasses in one go and do it in style. 

The tray can be personalized with their family name or whichever text you think is best to display there. 

#22 Old Fashioned Whiskey Decanter Set

If the gift recipient likes to occasionally indulge in some whiskey, then this might gift might hit the spot.

It’s very retro, but also very cool. The product comes with a pair of glasses, hinting that they shouldn’t be drinking alone 🙂 …

The product holds up to 25 oz / 750 ml of liquid and is made out of lead free crystal. 

#23 A Quality Bullet Blender

This is not a unique idea, but it is very practical.

Especially if they don’t currently have a blender, which might not be the first thing you buy when moving into a new home. 

After trying out many fancy blenders, I could say that the simple magic bullet blender is still one of the top performers in my kitchen. 

Almost 12 thousand Amazon reviews can attest to that. 

#24 Electric Wine Opener

If the gift recipient is even a tiny bit of tech savy, they will definitely like this electric wine opener. 

This product is perfect for the single woman or gadget-savy man. 

It takes the hustle out of wine bottle opening, making it too easy and fun to go for the next bottle 😀

#25 State Shaped Cutting Board
