7 Perfect House Warming Gifts

Housewarming Party
So, you've been invited to your friend's house warming party. But what do you give as house warming gifts?

It can be hard to find that perfect gift to give as house warming gifts. House warming gifts don't tend to be as personal as birthday gifts or Christmas gifts. So buying perfect house warming gifts can be difficult and time consuming.

The iWishfor team has put together some great ideas for house warming gifts as a jumping off point. All of these ideas are easy to find and personalize and we have included some great tips to go with each one to make it even easier to find those perfect house warming gifts. Here are:

7 Perfect House Warming Gifts! 


Coffee Table Book
A large scale hard back book with beautiful photos is almost always appreciated.  Select a subject that would interest the gift receiver, else a travel themed book is good for most anyone.

Monogrammed Towel
A monogrammed guest hand towel compliments most decor. When giving as a gift, select one in a neutral color with the monogramming in either a darker neutral color or a color that compliments the recipient's guest bathroom. The monogram font should be traditional if the bathroom is traditional or modern if the bathroom is modern.

Candles are appreciated by most people. When gifting a candle, select one in a neutral color, such as white or cream, to compliment most home decor. Purchase a candle with a pleasant scent that is not too strong. Candles with a fruit or spice scent are great for a kitchen while candles with a floral scent are great for a bathroom or bedroom.

Plants or Flowers
Almost everyone loves fresh flowers or a potted plant. Fresh flowers are lovely for about a week, but a potted plant may last for years. Consider gifting a potted plant that can lated be planted in the recipient's garden.

Picture Frame
A small easel picture frame is a nice gift, especially with a personal picture, artwork, or note inside. Once again, select a picture frame that is not too plain but not too fancy to blend into many different styles of homes.

Filled Glass Canister
Glass canisters can be used to store many different items within a home, such as rice in the kitchen or cotton balls in the bathroom. Consider giving a gift of a glass canister with something else inside, such as Valentines love notes, candy, Christmas cookies, or whatever else you think the recipient might like.

Decorating Magazine
Consider giving a decorating magazine subscription as a gift. Make sure to order your recipient a magazine that is appropriate for their decorating style. Do not get them a country decorating magazine if they have a modern home.
