Housewarming Gift Ideas for First-Time Homeowners

If your gift recipients are moving into their first home, certain items will be quite beneficial and are sure to be much appreciated by the new homeowners.

Kitchen items make great housewarming gifts, particularly for first-time home buyers. In their new home, they’re sure to have more room for food prep and for hosting friends and family for dinner parties and get-togethers.

Essential items like cutting boards and kitchen towels are always great gifts for new homeowners. This Food Network™ Chevron Kitchen Towel Set includes two kitchen towels that offer durability and high-quality absorption that helps dry dishes with ease. For a cutting board option, consider the Food Network™ 3-pc. Bamboo Cutting Board Set. The bamboo construction stands up to cutting and chopping, and looks great when the boards are used as a serving tray, too.

New homeowners will also appreciate other kitchen essentials such as cookware, small appliances, glassware and serveware, and more. Cooking and baking is a way to make a house feel like a home, and these products allow the first-timers to make memories over creating delicious dishes.

Outside of the kitchen, new homeowners will appreciate home décor gifts, like wall art, table accents, candles, and photo frames/albums. These items allow the homeowners to fill their space with personalized decorations from loved ones, offering a special connection that only gifts like these could provide.

Gifts for Previous Homeowners

If your gift recipients have previously owned a home, the kind of housewarming gift you’ll consider for them will differ greatly from one you get for first-time home buyers.

Instead of basics like towels, dishes or glasses, consider more personal gifts that are specific to the needs and preferences of the homeowners.

Consumable gifts, like a bottle of wine or fresh baked goods, are popular for these situations. In terms of new items for the home, consider items like candles or essential oil diffusers. These products offer an immediate impact, but take up little space. Since these kinds of homeowners have much of what they need, functional décor is a great option.

Other useful housewarming gifts for previous homeowners include blankets, throw pillows, and other cozy home gifts that are always welcome.

Housewarming Gifts for Renters

Housewarming gifts aren’t reserved for those moving into houses. As people move into apartments, townhouses, or other rental properties, they also need new items to make them feel right at home in their new digs.

Since space is at a premium in apartments, consider gifting organization items. Baskets, bins and other containers allow apartment dwellers to keep their space neat and tidy. Other gift ideas to keep an apartment looking great include vacuums and floor cleaners.

If it’s the renter’s first ever place of their own, consider gifting them bedding or bath towels, which are must-haves.

When shopping for a housewarming gift for new homeowners, browse through the selection of home essentials at Kohl’s. You’re sure to find household items that welcome your friends or family into their brand new space.
