If one of your friends just moved into a new home, you might want to bring them a small gift to congratulate them. Unfortunately, housewarming gifts have a reputation for ending up in the trash or being donated. But, if you choose a thoughtful gift that reflects their personality, you can help your friends truly enjoy their new home.

1. Spunky welcome mat
Everyone needs a welcome mat. Just make sure to choose one that reflects your friend’s personality.
2. Stylish diffuser
When you first move into a new home, it might not smell the way you’d like. By giving your friends a stylish diffuser, though, you can help them create a fragrant ambiance, so their home smells amazing right away.
3. Oven mitts
Oven mitts can easily be lost during a move, and they can also get dirty pretty quickly. Personally, I recommend getting your friends silicone oven mitts because they’ll last for longer than fabric ones.
4. Bar set
If your friends like to play mixologist, then a bar set will get a lot of use. Plus, the drinks it helps make could be the start of a few really great stories.
5. Cozy throw blanket
I am always cold, so I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many throw blankets around the house. They’re great for curling up on the couch with a good book or watching your favorite TV show.
No matter how hard we try, we all tend to get into a food rut from time to time. Moving into a new home is the perfect excuse to get out of that rut and try a few new recipes.
7. Amazon gift card
An Amazon gift card certainly isn’t the most personal housewarming gift. But everyone needs a few things whenever they move, so a gift card is a great way to ensure they can buy whatever they need.
8. Funny kitchen towels
When you’re cooking, you always need a kitchen towel nearby to clean up any messes. Why not give your friends a good laugh while they clean?
9. Painting of their new home
A custom painting of their new home is a great commemorative piece of decor. As a bonus, it can move with your friends, so they always have a sweet memento from their previous homes.
10. Return address stamp
Most of us don’t mail things too often anymore. But it’s nice to have a stamp with your address available for those few times a year you do mail something.
