If you know someone who has recently purchased a new home or moved into a new rental, then it’s the perfect time to find them a lovely housewarming gift!
Whether it’s their first home or their forever home, a thoughtful gift will always be welcome. From practical and organisational items, through to decor and our favourite housewarming hampers, you’ll find a range of great ideas in our helpful guide below.
Stock their fridge and pantry with fine wine and tasty treats with our Ultimate Indulgence Gift Hamper! This enormous gift hamper is absolutely brimming with local flavours, so it’s the perfect option for making them feel spoiled (and if they’re furniture hasn’t arrived yet, it will take the sting out of eating on the floor on their first night in their new home). The hamper comes with a bottle of Annie’s Lane Shiraz and Annie’s Lane Chardonnay, as well as gourmet snacks like Byron Bay Crispbreads, chutney and chilli jam, olives marinated in green fennel, a zest spice blend, salt cure, beef jerky, Brookfarm’s premium nuts and handcrafted chocolates.
A nice houseplant or a vase is always a classic go-to for a housewarming gift, and for good reason! Adding a bit of greenery around indoor spaces is a great way to make them instantly feel more homely and alive. Houseplants are also much easier to shop for than decor, because they’re unlikely to clash with their existing style. If you’re looking for something to complement their new space, we’d suggest a small potted plant, a dried bouquet or a beautiful vase.
If you’re looking for a housewarming gift for someone who just purchased a new home, we’d definitely recommend our Champagne Gift Hamper. Becoming a homeowner is a major cause for celebration, so a great bottle of champagne is a must! With this hamper, they’ll be able to crack open a bottle of bubbly and chow down on yummy Byron Bay favourites like Byron Bay cookies, Duck Creek macadamias, Cacao Lemon Chiffon and Wallaby Bites.
Tea, coffee and other essentials are often the things that are missing when we first move into a new home. If you’re looking for a practical, yet indulgent gift to get the tea or coffee lover in your life, we’d suggest our Tea & Coffee Gift Basket. There’s three locally made tea options inside for them to choose from, including Immunity Tea from Tea Tribe, Kiso’s Chai Tea and Mayde Tea, which is an aromatic blend of chamomile, passionflower, rose petals and lavender. There’s also a tea strainer, organic plunger coffee and gourmet treats to complement the tea blends inside.
If you’re looking for something a little more sentimental, why not purchase them a set of Magic Beans to plant in their outdoor space. These magic beans have been laser engraved with inspirational messages and come in a tin with enough soil to get them started.Once planted and watered in the tin, they’ll grow with the message intact. When they get large enough, they can be transferred into their garden where they’ll eventually start producing beautiful flowers! This is a great way to mark the occasion of moving into a new home!
