Ideas For Celebrating A New Homeowner’s Big Milestone
Buying or moving into a new home can be both exciting and stressful. Some movers mark the occasion by throwing a housewarming party. As a guest, you’ll join the mover in celebrating a successful move and hoping for a happy future in the new home.
It’s common courtesy to give a housewarming gift to the mover – these show you are happy for them and want them to appreciate their new home. There are many options you can choose from: practical, comforting, thoughtful, or a combination of those qualities.
Here are some of our recommendations!
Roses bring life to any room, and they symbolize that you care about your friend. A rose on its own is nice, but an arrangement from Dose of Roses is a stunning option that won’t be forgotten. Consider an elegant marble arrangement or a bold leather square arrangement.

Help your friend brighten up their new home with decorations. Get creative with your gift – anything from art, candles, a nice vase, or even something practical like a pillow set or a blanket are great examples of home décor that your loved one will appreciate.
Any homeowner wants a well-stocked kitchen. Simple things like glassware or cutlery are great practical options, though you may choose something more personal if you know what your host wants or needs. Something related to their particular cooking interests will impress them, while an engraved item offers a personalized touch.
If your host has alluded to the stress that comes with moving, help them relieve that stress with a nice bottle of wine. You may know their favourite brand, or choose a favourite of your own as a recommendation. To make your gift extra special, pair it with new wine glasses, chocolates, or roses.
A custom photo gift offers a decorative item that doubles as a keepsake for fond memories. Anything from a hand-selected photo album to a well-designed frameset will bring a sense of joy and community into the new home.
Glassware can be both practical and visually appealing, making it a great gift. Add to your host’s kitchen by choosing something simple, like everyday glasses, or something more elegant, like champagne flutes.
Liquor symbolizes celebration, making it the perfect gift for a housewarming party. You want to join your host in celebrating both the end of a move that required hard work and patience and a new beginning. If you know your host’s taste in liquor, choose something you know they’ll appreciate.
Satisfy your host’s sweet tooth with a crowd-pleaser that’s impossible to turn down: chocolate. Any chocolates are nice, but gourmet treats like these handcrafted truffles from Dose of Roses are particularly special.

Plants bring life to any home – literally. If your host is new to keeping plants, choose something simple, like a cactus, a succulent or a pothos plant. Make sure to teach the host how to take care of the plant and consider any possible allergies.
