Like shopping for a dedicated lover of fashion, housewarming gifts can be a bit tricky. Why? Because not only does your gift say a lot about your host, but it also says a lot about you. The best housewarming gifts exhibit your knowledge about their recipients—and if they’re not carefully chosen, they might show off a lack of consideration. You never want to shoot so far from the mark that your gift might not ever get put to use.

But housewarming gifts also convey thoughtfulness as a guest—ultimately, they’re a way you can help a friend or holiday host get the most out of their homes long after you’re gone. Taking a few moments to really think about what your host might need in their new space, or what quality items may last a long time will certainly pay off in the long run. Plus, giving a memorable gift is a great way to ensure you’ll be invited back in the future.

Below are a few ideas that’ll please a variety of tastes—and tastemakers, too.

Material Kitchen The Full Glass Set


One thing no host ever wants to run out of—other than ice—is fresh glasses. This inventive and stylish new set from Material will help them keep the party going—and get their hydration back the morning after.

Fritz Hansen Ikebana Vase Large

If you’re shopping for someone who likes having fresh-cut flowers on display but is hopeless at making them look their best, Fritz Hansen’s Ikebana vase might help. Named after the Japanese art of flower arranging, the vase is in two parts: a glass bowl and a brass-colored support that helps each bloom stand up. Bring it to the party filled with their favorite stems and expect lots of invites back.

We loved LAFCO’s Absolute collection when it debuted last year with an array of high-end scented candles. Now, the company has added reed diffusers for an even longer-lasting dose of great aroma to any home.

If your host prefers to have the occasional glass of wine instead of opening a full bottle, Coravin’s wine preservation system is a perfect gift.
