Cute Housewarming Gift Ideas for 2019
May 17, 2019

Moving is equal parts exciting, exhausting, and expensive. It can signify a lot of different things, too: a new chapter in life, a fresh clean start, or just a subtle shift in living arrangements. But no matter the reason and location, the work that goes into moving is absolutely exhausting — and expensive. With so many expenses to worry about, a great housewarming gift is not only a sweet gesture, but a great way to relieve a bit of stress for the people you love.

So what makes for a cute housewarming gift? At MASSE, we let our users speak for themselves and recommend the products they really love. We list items based on real reviews, with no paid promotion or sneaky sponsored reviews. That way you know that the wide range of cute housewarming gifts you find here are truly honest and will really excite whoever receives the gifts.

What we’ve found is that people love housewarming gifts that are either useful or aesthetically pleasing (and in a very perfect world, both). Because the first part of moving homes is clearing out all the stuff you don’t need and taking what you do, there’s a good chance people will need help filling up their new home with memories, mementos, and useful gadgets. Some of the best housewarming gifts are classy, useful items that people wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves. Think about what you’d love to own but can’t quite pull the trigger on buying, and you are probably thinking of a cute housewarming gift in the making.

MASSE’s selection of housewarming gifts include a lot of items in that sweet spot, like wine coolers, gorgeously scented candles, and monogrammed linens. They’re the kind of gifts that will make friends and loved ones smile and genuinely thank you, and you can smile knowing they’ll be in their new homes for years to come.

White Marble Wine Cooler

$47.00By: Pottery Barn
Bottles of wine are great gifts for pretty much any occasion (other than a child’s birthday, perhaps), but that also means they can start to pile up on someone celebrating a special occasion. Housewarmings are no different — bottles of wine are some of the most popular housewarming gifts of all. Want to change it up, while still playing into that tradition? With Pottery Barn’s Marble Wine Cooler, you’ll be giving a gorgeous piece that’s super helpful — keeping a bottle of wine cool could not be more paramount! MASSE users call it chic — and also point out that it can also fit vodka bottles.

Santal 26 Classic Candle

$75.00By: Le Labo
Le Labo’s Santal 26 Classic Candle offers a few twists on your typical gift candles: instead of floral or fruity smells, it’s got a smoky and leathery scent (though it’s vegan). It also comes in a thick, high-quality glass vessel that is also customizable. Adding the recipients’ names on such a nice candle makes it a cute housewarming gift that will burn and burn for a very long time.

Book Lamp - Walnut

$198.00By: Lumio
You don’t have to be an art-lover or bookworm to appreciate the style and cleverness of the Book Lamp from Lumio. Knowledge is its own source of light, and so it’s absolutely perfect that the “pages” on this book-like lamp are all illuminated from an inner light that flicks on as soon as you crack it open. It’s a gentle glow that makes a perfect reading light, making it a cute housewarming gift that can be used in just about any room.

Circa Rose Quartz S01 Box Gift Set

$295.00By: Cinnamon Projects
Moving can be super-stressful, so any housewarming gift that helps alleviate that stress is always appreciated. Cinnamon Projects’ Circa Rose Quartz incense sets provide an absolutely relaxing scent and are aesthetically gorgeous, with holding discs cut from semi-precious stones. They’re cute housewarming gifts that are also incredibly useful, as they come with five different scents (all high quality, according to MASSE users) so that they can be used at just about any time.

Different housewarming gifts serve different purposes. Some are cute decorative pieces that people will love, but not necessarily use, while others are more practical items that no one’s necessarily excited to receive, but really will put to work. Play 5 speakers from Sonos falls right in the middle, because not only will people be pumped to open them up, they’ll be more than a little bit excited to get the music pumping. MASSE reviewers uniformly love them, enthusing about their sound quality and ease of use. As one enthusiastic recommendation explains, ‘you can’t go wrong!”
