Thoughtful housewarming gifts that are functional yet lovable

Moving into a new home is a milestone that calls for celebration. And if you are visiting someone at their new home, taking a present along is obligatory as it’s a way of congratulating them and wishing them luck. 
However, it can be quite tricky if you do not know what to gift them. Also, since they will be receiving many gifts, you need to make sure that your gifts will stand out! Remember that the best gifts are those that are thoughtful, useful, and match the recipient's personality and preferences.
We have handpicked some great ideas to make the task easier for you. From decor items to utilitarian household additions, here are some gifting options that will surely be cherished.


Photo frames



Family pictures and memorabilia are things that make a house a home. You can buy a set of photo frames that can be placed around their home while still maintaining a theme. Or you can gift photomontage frames that can help them put together beautiful memories. From classic wood frames to textured glass frames, pick one that matches their personality. 


Table accents



Diffusers and fragrances



You know that amazing fragrance in resorts and spas that define luxury? You can ensure that your loved ones have that right in their home every single day! Choose from a variety of diffusers, essential oils, incense sticks, scented candles, and pot-pourri.


Pots and planters



If the homeowner loves plants, gifting them eye-catching pots and planters can really make their day. There are many options available in ceramic, glass, and metal that are eco-friendly and reusable. They come in bold colours, various shapes, and with unique stands. Your thoughtful gift can not only beautify their living space but also help purify the air. 


Bedspreads and quilts



If the new homeowner has completed doing the interiors of their house, it might be a good idea to give them something functional. You can help brighten up the home with a dash of colour by gifting them bedspreads, blankets, throw pillows, or quilts. Also, you can never go wrong with this gift no matter what colour or pattern you choose because it's a useful item that everyone needs. 





Another functional gift is kitchenware; this is something they are likely to use every day. You can gift cookware, pots and pans, dinner sets, or tools and gadgets such as a knife set, chopping board, airtight containers, etc. These will be widely appreciated across age groups.





A lamp can quite literally brighten up a home. There are many trendy lamps available, from art deco to contemporary to ethnic. Get them something that goes with the ethos of their home. You could buy a crystal lamp for their living room, a mosaic table lamp for their bedroom, or even a bunch of string lights to give their porch a boho-chic look.

A gift is an expression of love, so it’s important that you get it right. Don’t shy away from asking your loved ones what they would like. Whatever they wish, you can make it come true at Home Centre, a one-stop shop for the most beautiful housewarming presents!
