If you know someone who has recently moved into their own house, you may have the difficulty of choosing them the perfect house warming gift.

These types of gifts can be very difficult to choose, this is because no one is quite sure what they currently have in their home or what anyone is going to buy them. The best way to choose a house warming gift is to choose a gift which you think no one else is going to think of. For some fabulous house warming gift ideas, read on.

Food Gifts

This may seem a bit weird, to bring food as a present for someone who has just moved into a house. But what could be more appropriate? The people who have just moved into their home, have no doubt spent the last couple of weeks moving backwards and forwards and arranging all their stuff. Make things easy for them and give them the perfect welcome to their home.

There is a large variety of food gifts which you could get them; this could include an organic collection of vegetables, a bread collection, a biscuit collection, olive oil collection, and spices. All these gifts will be perfect for when someone first moves into their home. Just make sure you don’t turn up with it in a supermarket carrier bag, get a nice little decorative bag to carry it in.

Drink Gifts

After a long hard house move, no doubt all they are going to want to do is sit down a have a nice glass of wine? Make sure they’ve got a bottle stashed away so bring a bottle with you as a present. If the people you are buying for are not big drinkers, why not bring them a collection of their favourite teas and coffees. These home gifts are very personal and meaningful so will be appreciated.

Gift Basket

When you move in your first home, you will never have everything which you need to hand, so why not make it a bit easier for them? Create a little gift basket of all the essential stuff which they are going to need down the line but haven’t yet thought of. Create a handy basket full of home tools; these basics are essential in any home!

If the people you are buying for are keen gardeners, why not get a little gardening pack together? Get some basic gardening tools, a plant, some flower seeds and vegetable seeds. This will start them off on their own little adventure in their home.
