Buying a gift for someone who already seems to have everything is difficult at the best of times, but when it’s a housewarming gift for someone who has everything it’s especially difficult!
There’s no point in buying the typical housewarming gifts you would usually buy for first home buyers as a person who “has everything” is no doubt already fully stocked with pots, pans, tablecloths and wine glasses and other usual household goods that make good housewarming gifts.
But, not to worry – with a little bit of creative thinking, you can still find the perfect housewarming gift for someone who has everything – we just need to look a little deeper.
As the person you are buying for already ‘has everything’, chances are good that they do already have some of the items on our gift ideas list.
But, don’t be afraid to also consider things like a new set of towels – they may already have everything, but as it’s a housewarming gift, they must be moving into a new place and they might appreciate some fresh new towels or linen to go with their new digs.
Alternatively, keep scrolling through, as I’m sure there will be at least one or two gift suggestions here that would be a new and welcome idea to your gift recipient. Here’s our housewarming gift ideas list for the person who already has everything:
1. New Home Candle
In some cultures it’s traditional to give a candle as a housewarming gift, and what’s better than a candle that’s scented with possibilities for their new home?
Sure, you could just buy them a bunch of flowers, but wouldn’t their new home look great with some Pink Calla Lillies that they have grown themselves?
3. LED Flame Table Lamp
A bluetooth speaker and pretty table lamp all in one is going to be pretty and useful in their new home! And, chances are good they probably don’t have one just like this already.
4. Bathroom Guest Book
Add a little humor to the housewarming party with a bathroom guest book!
5. A Throw Blanket
Even if they’ve already got one (or two) of these, you can never have too many comfy, cozy blankets! If you know what their new place looks like, choose one to suit the decor.
6. Hand Towels
Just like a throw blanket, you can never have too many! Choose some classy Turkish towels like these for an elegant, sophisticated housewarming gift.
7. A Good Luck Tree
Add some good Feng Shui to their new home with an aura cleansing crystal tree. If nothing else, it looks pretty, and they probably don’t already have one!
8. Spa Gift Basket
Moving house is a stressful occasion, give them some spa gifts so that they can relax and enjoy their new home once they’re all settled in.
9. Snack Basket
A snack basket is another great way to congratulate them on their new home without cluttering them up with too much stuff that they likely already have.
10. Essential Oil Diffuser
There’s nothing like being able to fill your new home with the fresh, clean scent of essential oils.
11. Essential Oils
While you’re at it, don’t forget to get them some essential oils to use in their new diffuser!
12. Fondue Set
Take them back to the dinner parties of the 70’s with a classic fondue set! Chocolate or cheese – it never gets old!
13. Hummingbird Feeder
For something pretty and practical, if they’ve got an outdoor space to put it, how about a hummingbird feeder?
14. Indoor S'mores Maker
For something a bit different, an indoor s’mores maker would suit a recipient who never gets enough time to camp.
15. Pizza Cutter & Cutting Board
If your recipient likes to cook, a pizza cutter and cutting board set is a great addition to their collection of kitchen equipment.
16. Indoor/Outdoor Portable Fire Pit
Such a unique and versatile idea – your recipient can add warmth and ambience to any setting with a cute little fireplace like this.
17. No Soliciting Sign
Practical gifts are always useful, if your recipient is unlikely to want to stand and chat with salespeople at their door, this could be the perfect gift!
18. Personalized Door Mat
It’s personalized, it’s for the home, these doormats make a great housewarming gift.
19. Personalized Address Stamp
I know a lot of people don’t send mail anymore so this gift might seem unnecessary, but, if your recipient likes to send out a stack of Christmas cards each year, then this would make a great gift for them.
20. Air Purifier
Give them the gift of clean air! Especially if they’re moving into an old, dusty place or a home that has been regularly smoked in, an air purifier will be a perfect present.
21. Mosquito Repellent
If they’re moving to the country, or even the suburbs, a mosquito repellent like this one would make a great addition to their home.
22. Set of Picture Frames
Whether it’s to display photos, artistic prints or certificates, every house needs some frames.
23. AquaBliss Shower Filter
Said to relieve dandruff, eczema and dry, itchy skin, thousands of reviewers can’t be wrong! If your recipient suffers from dry skin and similar problems, help them get to the root of the cause with this amazing shower filter – perfect for their new home!
24. Indoor Water Feature
Add some calm and serenity to any room with a cool trickling fountain like this one.
25. Bath Caddy/Tray
After the stress of moving, help them to relax and enjoy a soothing bath with all the trimmings!
26. Pot Plants
Adding beauty and oxygen to every room, you can’t go wrong with a pot plant.
27. Money Tree
In a similar theme to the pot plants above, who wouldn’t want a money tree? Said to bring prosperity and good luck to its owners, this would be a popular gift for any occasion, not just a housewarming!
28. Indoor Herb Garden
Nothing says homemade like the addition of freshly grown herbs. If your recipient is a gardener or a cook, they’ll love one of these!
29. Mason Jar Herbs
Or, go the more ‘low-tech’ route with this mason jar herb growing kit.
30. Fancy Hand Soaps
Perfect for the guest bathroom, fancy hand soaps are always a hit.
31. Reed Diffuser
Perfect for scenting every room in the house, you can never have too many diffusers! Choose from a wide range of scents to suit the person and the property.
32. Posh Home Box Subscription
Imagine if you could treat your friend to stylish bits and pieces to add to their new home decor every month – that’s exactly what you can get them with a subscription to the Posh Home Box.
33. Cozy Home Crate
Or, help them stay on top of their seasonal decorating with a subscription to the Cozy Home Crate.
34. Amazon Gift Card
It’s not a cop out to simply buy a gift card as a housewarming present, it just means your recipient can really choose what they actually need and want for themselves.
So, if none of our other gift ideas have inspired you, grab a gift card, pair it with a bottle of wine or some chocolates, and your gift giving obligation is done!
Whatever you choose as a housewarming gift, just remember it really is the thought that counts. Giving a housewarming gift to someone, especially if they already have everything, is just your way of showing that you care and that you’re interested in what is going on in your friend or relative’s life.
Happy Gift Giving!
