Housewarming Gift Ideas

We love a good housewarming party. It’s a celebration we never skip knowing firsthand how challenging it can be to find, afford, and move into a new place. Plus, pass up a chance to scope out new home decor? We could never…

Here are four gift ideas for your next housewarming party:

Gift basket of house goodies

While this may seem obvious, the key is to include items people should have but likely don't. We love strolling through the aisles of HomeSense, picking up things we'd want for ourselves. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Sushi dishes with chopsticks
  • Candle wick trimmer
  • Jewellery tray
  • Hand towels
  • Fancy candle
  • Spoon rest
  • Cutting board

Then put everything into a basket that is reusable and decorative.


Customize this gift for your host. If they’re fancy, opt for a brand-name coffee like BigFace. If they’re a fan of Nespresso pods, get them a month's worth of their favourite flavour.  

Gift Card

Who doesn’t love a good gift card? HomeSense, Indigo, and (of course) Hone, are our go-tos.

Fancy Soap

The Aesop hand soap is so luxurious and addictive! Fun fact: The Kardashians have the same one in their bathrooms. It’s one of those things that is too expensive to buy for yourself but not too expensive to buy as a gift.
