The Most Practical Housewarming Gifts for Christmas Season

Christmas is a time when you are much more likely to visit friends and family. Sometimes this may also tie in with them moving to a new home. Why not combine the two things and pick them out a Christmas housewarming gift?

Stuck for ideas on what to buy? Here are some of the amazing 5 Christmas Housewarming Gift Ideas that you could buy as a treat for the new homeowner during the festive season.

1. A Cleaning Supplies Cake

Cleaning supplies might not always sound like the most exciting housewarming gift, but in actual fact, they can prove to be the most useful. Every new homeowner needs new household supplies, so this is a practical housewarming gift. You can also make them that little bit more interesting by creating a cake effect with them. Additionally, you can add in your own cleaning favorites and share your expertise.

2. Christmas Personalized Ornaments

If the family have only just moved into their house right before Christmas, then chances are that they might not have had time to dig out their decorations. Why not treat them to not only a variety of Christmas decorations but make them personal? This will mean that they can give their new home a festive touch and have a personal keepsake too. This is a special time as Christmas is a time of traditions. Who knows, maybe your ornaments will be the start to their long-lasting tradition of hanging decorations onto the Christmas tree.

3. Bring a Christmas Housewarming Dinner


It may sound like a strange gift, but if you have been spending the past few weeks moving home, then chances are that they haven’t had a chance to enjoy a home-cooked meal. Why not give them an amazing treat by cooking dinner and taking it with you? You can warm it up and then all eat it together. Nothing like settling into a home like a big welcome feast!

You can an additional sentimental touch by providing a cookbook and fill some of the pages with some of your favorite home-made recipes. That way, the new homeowners will have a cookbook to fill with all their own recipes, but will also get to the chance to enjoy your recipes as well. Besides, you’re not going to be coming by with dishes all the time.

4. A Christmas Wreath for the Front Door

A great way to make a home feel more festive is to put up some decorations. One popular decoration that makes for a great gift is a Christmas wreath. It could be a fresh one or perhaps one that could be used time and time again. Nothing says welcome home like a big ol’ wreath greeting you at the front of the door. It’s a nice touch to the home and chances are the new homeowners have not thought of purchasing one.

5. A Photo Frame


One of the ways that you can make your house feel like a home is to ensure that you display photos all around it. You can never have too many photo frames, so why not choose this as a housewarming gift? If you stick to a relatively simple design, then you can be sure that it will fit in with their home no matter what type of interior they have opted for. You can also include a photograph of one of your favorite memories with the homeowner. If it’s too difficult to pick just one, why not gift an entire customized photo album filled with your favorite memories. The Christmas Housewarming is a great opportunity to sit down and reminisce over past memories. Be sure to leave some pages open so that the homeowner can fill it with more memories to come.

There are so many different gifts that you can buy for a Christmas housewarming treat. No matter which gift you opt, one of the best things that you can do is simply go and visit them in their new home and bring them a bit of your own festive cheer!
