1. Catch-All BasketsFor housewarmings, chic storage is a no-brainer – because If there’s one thing a new homeowner can use more of, it’s easy hacks for keeping tidy. And if there’s one storage solution that’s as chic as it is effortless, it’s the decorative basket. Light, spacious and available in an array of sizes, any host will delight in these organizing must-haves.
Plus, baskets are, of all the possible housewarming gifts, the most fun to “wrap”; fill them up with goodies like the hosts’ favorite candy or scented candles, and tie it all up with a statement-making bow.
2. The Wine Lover’s Wine Holder
If the hosts are the type of people who abide by the motto that ‘it’s always 5:00 somewhere,’ then you can’t go wrong with a bottle of wine. Present it to them in a keepsake wine holder that they can use from years on out, and then get ready to raise a glass – and toast to a new home.
3. A Luxurious Throw Blanket
A new home just isn’t home without all the things that make it comfy and cozy, like the hygge things that bring together the people you love (we’re looking at you, oversized sofas, plush rugs and buttery-soft throw blankets!). While gifting a sofa or rug might not be the best idea (especially if the hosts aren’t expecting it and especially if you don’t know their decor scheme), a throw blanket is a tried-and-true housewarming favorite.
4. Decorative Tableware
If you want to gift practical, it doesn’t get any more practical than a decorative dish or two – which can be used for anything from serving food to collecting coins. Plus, just as with gifting a decorative basket, how you choose to fill up a decorative dish can be just as fun as the dish itself (think individually-wrapped fruit chews, caramels, chocolates or other party favorites!).

7. Keepsake Boxes
8. Fresh Flowers
Nothing livens up a home like life, so give it in abundance via flowers, succulents or indoor growing plants. Arrange flowers in a decorative vase and succulents and growing plants in an all-purpose planter, so your recipient doesn’t have to worry about the logistics of storage – and can instead focus on where to place your gorgeous greenery!
