8 housewarming gift ideas for a new home

When someone moves home it can be tricky to know what to buy them as a housewarming present.  But don’t forget to treat yourself to a little something when you move, too! We have found some fun pieces that will also add personality to your or a friend’s home.  Which is your favourite?


Those of us of a certain age will remember spending hours putting together mix tapes.  Bring that joy back into someone’s life with their very own mix tape on an authentic cassette – your children will wonder what it is!  You can even personalise the tape label to make a unique and special gift that will brighten up their home and day.


Mix Tape In Case Of Emergency, GettingPersonal.co.uk £39.99


Another lovely housewarming gift idea is this Gold Glass Vase by Bloomingville. Timeless and elegant, the hand-glazed vase is great for displaying plants and flowers in style.  It would add a sophisticated finishing touch to any home.

If, like us, you're partial to the odd tipple of extremely good wine, then you'll love this sign. With a message that reads, “This Home Runs On Love, Laughter and Bottles of Really Good Wine,” this free standing sign would make a great gift idea.

A lovely addition to your home, or a kind token of good luck for someone moving into their new nest is this personalised wood pot planter.  Made from rustic pinewood, it’s deep enough to fill with an array of vibrant flower arrangements, or herbs and spices. Great for adding much-needed colour, you can even have it personalised with a stamped message across the metal strip that stretches along the centre.
