The Ideal First Home Gifts To Brighten Up Their Space

New home owners moving into their very first home is an exciting achievement and well worth celebrating. So, don't be surprised if your friends or family decide to host a party to celebrate their new home. A housewarming bash gives new movers a chance to have their very first get-together and show off their cosy new abode. 


A housewarming party is the ideal excuse to give them something to make their new home feel even more special. You may be wondering what are the best housewarming gift ideas to make the most impact. The rule of thumb is to think of that unique little something that adds a touch of homeliness to their space.


If you're buying a gift for someone who has just bought their very first new home, this is a reason to celebrate! While practical gifts for the home are nice, we also love the idea of giving a gift that's all about celebration. A housewarming party for their first home so much more than just a dinner party. It's a chance for a loving gesture to make memories in their new space!  


Their first night in their new home is special, so it's lovely to send a gift that gives them a way to make the occasion memorable. A welcoming housewarming gift can sometimes be a lifeline for stressed and overwhelmed loved ones. Here at The Hamper Emporium, we think choosing the right first home gift idea also depends on being extra thoughtful. So, we’ve been brainstorming thoughtful first home housewarming gift ideas that offer something a little different.


What Is A Good Practical Gift For A First-Time Homeowner?

If you're struggling to find the ideal gift for their very first home, a thoughtful housewarming card never goes amiss. Choose a lovely design with heartfelt wishes for moving to a new place or cute new home quotes and blessings. Enclose a gift card so they can choose what they'd like to add to their home, and you’re sure to make an impact in this wonderful new phase of their lives.


If you'd like to go bigger, there are always practical gifts for new homeowners. They usually need everything for their homes and yards! It's always useful to have handy tools and safety gear on hand, especially if they plan to decorate themselves. Treat them to a fun fire extinguisher and first aid kit, a set of collapsible ladders or a fully equipped toolkit belt. DIY fans will love them as they transform their empty house into a cosy home! A luxury homewares hamper includes the best of both world with practical homewares that have that wow factor with gold trimmed marble coasters, a candle, kitchen towel, and luxe home gifts.

Thoughtful Housewarming Gifts For Outdoor Nature Lovers

Barbecue tools

Most outdoor fans love barbecues, so a handy toolset is sure to earn you points. You can set them up for lazy days with essentials like tongs and the very latest exciting accessories.

Plants & pots

For someone who loves the garden but has just moved home, cacti or succulents are low maintenance. Add some beautiful, colourful pots and their backyard will soon look amazing.
