A house plant is a traditional housewarming gift that livens up a room. Silk plants are preferred by some homeowners, since they last forever and do not require watering. Another option is a bouquet of flowers in a vase.
Candles are a useful gift that does not cost a lot of money. A candle to match the color scheme of the new home is a thoughtful idea. Candle holders for a dining room table are also popular as housewarming gifts.
A wreath for the front door is something most new homeowners do not have. It is also a gift that can be made with supplies from a craft store. There are a variety of wreath styles available, including pine cone wreaths, floral wreaths and bell wreaths.
Tools are something that most homeowners need. Screwdrivers, wrenches and hammers come in handy for assembling items and making simple repairs. A toolbox with a few starter tools is another option.
Food and beverages are inexpensive options for a gift. A plate of cheese with a bottle of wine is a common suggestion for a housewarming party. A tray of cookies or nuts is another idea.Learn more about Gift Giving
