FAQs

What is a housewarming gift?

Housewarming gifts are gifts given to someone who’s just moved to a new place. Housewarming gifts for couples or housewarming gifts for friends or family are usually the most common gifts that are given. Usually, good housewarming gifts are wrapped up and given when someone invites you to come see their new digs or is throwing a housewarming party you’re invited to. You can choose to give furniture, appliances, home decor, or other household supplies that can help brighten up a new home. For more economical options, try bundling items you know the new homeowner or renter will need — for example, a kitchen utensils bundle, new sheets or towels, or even a decorative vase with real (or artificial) flowers.


For even more good housewarming gift ideas, see our list of the best housewarming gifts that people actually use, all available right here on Grove.


What is a good housewarming gift?

If you’re sitting here thinking about what a good housewarming gift would be, you’re in luck. Grove’s got plenty of housewarming gift ideas to offer you the best sustainble items to give.


First and foremost, think about the person you’re buying for and choose something that suits their personality — something you know they’d like. For example, if your gal pal just nailed herself a new, sought-after apartment and you need to browse housewarming gifts for friends, this Asutra Sleep Mask Set + free gift with this Pacha Soap Co. Strawberry Orange Froth Bomb Set makes an awesome present. If you’re looking for housewarming gifts for couples, you can combine items like the Grove Co. Kitchen Towel, the Grove Co. Dish Drying Mat, and the Grove Co. “Al Fresco” Soy Candle - Pink Grapefruit, Jasmine, and Vanilla for a gift that keeps on giving.


What is the most common housewarming gift?

If you haven’t guessed it by now, here it is (drumroll, please) — wine! Wine and a wine opener are one of the most common housewarming gifts. Chances are unless the gift giver knows ahead of time you don’t drink alcohol, you’re probably getting wine as a housewarming gift. Other good housewarming gift ideas that are super popular include candles and incense, plants (shout out to this Hamama Microgreens Grow Kit with Bamboo Frame), wall art, kitchen essentials, and things to make the home more comfortable like a fleece blanket.
