Ideas for new home presents and housewarming gifts

Boxes are being unpacked and the champagne is being popped. Now it's time for you to show up with an awesome housewarming gift. Because in the end, moving into a new home is a lot to think about. But that’s where you come in. Below are the top tips for gift ideas for the whole home.

While there’s no one secret to finding the best new home gift, one trick is to think about what will help them get settled the quickest. From convenient kitchenware to smart electronics to handy cleaning accessories and more, here are a few ideas to get you started.

Ideas for new house gifts to get inspired

Whether you’re looking for housewarming gift ideas for couples, first-time movers or new families, you can find exactly what you need. Moving into a new space doesn’t happen overnight. But the best housewarming gifts can quickly become a token of the exciting next chapter of their lives.

What to bring to a housewarming party

Do you know someone who’s just moved into a new house and is throwing a housewarming party? Then it’s time to celebrate their adventure with some personalised gifts. Put together your own housewarming gift basket with fun IKEA accessories and home necessities. Or find that one thing that’s guaranteed to help them feel right at home.

From small items that make a big difference to big items that tie the whole house together, good housewarming gifts help turn four walls into a home. Check out the IKEA selection of decorative accessories, textiles and kitchen supplies to find new inspiration for what to bring to your next housewarming party.

Help out with practical new home presents

Moving can be stressful, so any presents that make life easier will always be appreciated. One great example is baskets. They can be filled with books, linens or toys. And before you wrap the basket, you can even pre-fill it with sweets, scented candles and other goodies to give the new homeowners an extra surprise.

Cleaning accessories also make a great housewarming present – especially for someone with a pet or a kid! These handy presents include washcloths, buckets and towels. They’re a necessity in literally every house. So if you’re debating what present to bring, consider keeping things simple and giving them bath towels or kitchen towels. It’s a way to lend a helping hand and add a little softness and style to the new home.

Discover new home gifts for the whole home

Welcome your friends, family and new acquaintances with gifts from the heart. A framed picture from that holiday you spent together. A new vase for the flowers you plan to bring. Or maybe just a few practical necessities for the bathroom, the kitchen or the living room.

Find the best housewarming gift ideas for the next time you’re dropping by their new place or for when you get invited to their first party. Or maybe you simply want to welcome your new neighbour. Whatever you need, you can find it right here.
