It’s an exciting period in a couple’s life when they finally move into their new home! It’s a time for new adventures and making new memories. Often, they will throw a housewarming to celebrate their new digs, and if they’re your close friends, you’ll get an invite in the mail. How exciting!
Before you attend the party, you’ve got to remember that you can’t arrive empty-handed! You can show up with a dish if they’re doing a potluck. But if it’s not, your choices of gifts are endless, and we understand that sometimes it’s hard to choose. You can always show up with a beautiful flower bouquet jar or take a pick of one of the choices we have below!
1. Bed linen
Did you know that we spend most of our time in bed, besides the office? So it’s fitting to gift the new homeowners luxurious sheets they can sink into after a long day. Spoil your friends by giving them soft Egyptian cotton linens known for their breathability, strength, and longevity.
If you can’t find Egyptian cotton in your area, the next best thing tis o look for the highest thread count. Hotels are well known for their 1000+ thread count sheets. Why do you think their beds are so comfortable? A quick tip: White sheets are always a safe choice.
2. Floral Arrangements
Flower bouquets are one of the most popular housewarming gifts; they’re effortless and look presentable. Plus, they will make their house smell amazing! Flower delivery is an option if you can’t make it to the party. And when ordered before the cut-off time, you’ll get Same-day delivery!
Do one better and order a flower jar hamper from LVLY with a bottle of Moët. After all, this momentous occasion is worth popping a bottle of bubbly for! Don’t forget to personalise your jar with a sweet message for the new homeowners.
3. Expresso Maker
Coffee machines aren’t for everyone, but if your friend is someone who eats, sleeps, and breathes coffee, they’ll surely appreciate this lavish gift. There are a couple of brands in the market, but they all look the same. Stainless steel and bulky.
Only one stands out from the rest. AnZa is every coffee lover’s dream, as their appliances are literal art pieces. Turn heads when you arrive with AnZa’s concrete espresso machine. Or keep it clean with AnZa White.
When you think Hermès, naturally Birkin or Kelly comes to mind. But did you know that they also have homeware? Look on their website or in-store, and you’ll find tableware sets fit for a queen or king. A gift that’s no doubt going to make an impression.
And like the China our moms keep in the cupboard, these gorgeous sets can be kept for a long time due to their excellent craftsmanship. It might even get passed down to future generations and kept as family heirlooms.
Candles are another popular housewarming gift, and they often come as a bundle in beautiful boxes for gifting, complete with candle scissors and even wax refills. Some popular luxury candle brands are Jo Malone and Diptyque.
Have a peek at L’Beauxtique instead next time. It was featured on Ophrah as one of the best luxury candles in the market to look out for. Their signature matte black candle jars fit perfectly in any setting, and frankly, if Ophrah says it’s good, we’d listen.
