9 Unique House Warming Gifts Under £30

House Warming Gift Ideas

Does it feel like every other weekend another one of your best friends moves into their first “adult” home? I’ve definitely reached the first home/engagement/wedding/baby stage of friendship, which is SO lovely – but, let’s face it, quite expensive!

Every week there’s another celebratory gift to purchase. And after a while it gets hard to keep thinking of fun, imaginative and thoughtful presents. Here I’ve handpicked 9 brilliant housewarming gift ideas that come in at a purse-friendly £30 or under (the cheapest product is £3!). So hopefully they’ll provide some inspiration, next time you’re stuck for ideas.

FYI: When I moved into my apartment last year I hated receiving flowers (as kind as the gesture was). I didn’t have enough vases, and the majority of my surface space was still covered in boxes. So I’d advise against sending flowers to anyone who has just moved.

  1. When I moved into my new house I received lots of plants, unfortunately I don’t have green thumb, and those poor plants didn’t live for long, except for a very few, strong ones.
    Your ideas are all very nice, I would have appreciated tumblers, coffee, olive oil, instead of plants! 🙂

    These are such genuinely thoughtful gift ideas Ella! I remember when I moved in to my first place and just had mugs of flowers sat on the floor, as I didn’t have any furniture and there were no windowsills in the apartment. Things like tumblers, coffee and a grocery list notebook are SO useful for anybody yet to unpack ‘properly’!

    These items are so pretty! The date night fund money box and the banana hook are my favorite ones.

  4. Charllotte says:

    Totally agreed! Most gifts I received when I moved in were flowers, lots of them. I didn’t have enough vases for those beautiful flowers so I need to get a bucket instead. I love your ideas. Really like the Kitchen Artwork and Date Night Fund.
