Affordable housewarming gift ideas

Housewarming gifts aren’t necessary but they’re a nice gesture that celebrates a big milestone in a person’s life. If a friend or relative has just bought or rented a new home, celebrate their big move with these six affordable housewarming gift ideas. They’re not only inexpensive to purchase but some are also inexpensive to send for those who can’t attend a housewarming but still want to send well wishes.

6 affordable housewarming gift ideas

Herb or vegetable seeds

Whether they’re in a pot on a windowsill or in a big vegetable patch, there’s nothing like picking fresh herbs and salad greens you’ve grown yourself and adding them straight into a home cooked meal. Celebrate your friend’s or relative’s new home and give them a head start on their herb or vegetable garden by sending a Trio of Herbs or Leafy Greens Gift of Seeds to their new letterbox. Both Gift of Seeds contain easy to grow varieties and are inexpensive to send. For the cost of a letter, you can send a Gift of Seeds to anyone in Australia.

If the new homeowner isn’t the culinary kind, perhaps they’d enjoy growing flowers instead. With many varieties of seeds to choose from, there is sure to be a flower they’ll enjoy growing.

Small homewares

Every new homeowner, especially if they’re moving out for the first time, needs to fill their home with basic homewares. Help your friend or relative settle into their home by gifting them small homewares such as a can opener, vase, grater or kitchen scales. Many of these basic but essential items are usually forgotten when setting up a new home, so these gifts are sure to be greatly appreciated.

A case of local produce or wine

If your friend or relative has moved interstate or to a new region, tantalises their tastebuds and celebrate the new area they’ve moved to with a hamper full of locally made produce or a case of locally made wine. This gift will not only help to support the small local producers of the region, but it will also introduce your friend or relative to a range of fresh produce they can buy once they’ve settled in.


Indoor plants make a wonderful and affordable housewarming gift. They’re not only nice to look at but they also help to clean and purify the air inside a home. Create a beautiful housewarming gift with a Pop up Pot – an innovative and affordable pot plant that assembles with a quick push and a pop. Simply choose a plant the homeowner will love and place it inside the Pop Up Pot. For a more affordable option, you can propagate a plant from your garden and place it into the Pop Up Pot.

If you’re celebrating a friend’s housewarming from afar, why not send them a Pop Up Pot and a voucher to a local nursery to buy an indoor plant. A Pop Up Pot is affordable to send in the mail and can be sent Australia-wide for the cost of a letter.

First impressions count. Help your friend or relative make their entryway one their visitors will remember with a fun doormat. You can find doormats in most hardware, homewares and discount stores in a variety of styles and prints. Simply find one that suits the new home and homeowner’s personality.

Home baked goods

Moving to a new home is an exhausting and daunting task.  Often the first week in a new home is chaotic managing moving and unpacking as well as arranging utility connections and finances. Relieve some of this stress while celebrating the big move by gifting home baked goods. The smell of baked goods often elicits nostalgia which will help to make the new home feel homely, and the new homeowners will be so grateful for the food they didn’t have to prepare themselves.
