What are the perfect gifts for a new home owner?

Picture this: your loved one has just moved into their beautiful new home. It’s Christmas Eve and they’ve only just managed to get their tree up. They’re finally ready to open your housewarming gift, and what is it? Socks.

Unsure of what to get as a housewarming gift? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered! Below we’ve listed our top picks for housewarming gifts which compliment the Christmas period.


This may seem obvious, but putting the tree up at Christmas is enough to turn it from a house to a home. So, why not be part of that transition? Head on down to the shops and grab some Christmas decorations for the home. How about a beautiful wreath to pop on the front door, or some jazzy tree decorations to light up their Christmas?

Delicious treats

So, your loved ones are freshly settled into their new home. They’ve been lugging around furniture all day, on and off the phone to the internet provider, and have had more cups of tea in one day than they have had all year! So, what are they in desperate need of? Christmas treats of course.

Put the smile of your loved one’s face and drop round with some festive minced pies, a handful of chocolate Santa’s, and a giant Christmas pudding (it is that time of year after all).

Christmas hamper

Combine all the treats in one! Wine, snacks, fresh pyjamas for settling down with a Christmas movie. A Christmas hamper is the perfect gift to say congratulations, and Merry Christmas all in one.

Your time

Amongst the all the ‘congratulations on your new home’ cards and the thoughtful gifts for the house, the greatest gift a new home owner can receive is someone’s time. Take a few hours out of the day out to help unload the van, spend some time putting together the wardrobe or topping up the hot drinks. Whatever it may be, a person’s time is always the greatest gift someone can receive, particularly over the Christmas period when everyone’s diaries are bursting at the seams.

We hope we’ve given you some ideas of what to get as the perfect Christmas housewarming gift. If you’re hoping to move into your very own new home next Christmas, view our available homes today.
