Kemi just called you that there is a sleepover at her new place next week Friday and as a polite well raised friend you want to get her a housewarming gift but you don’t know what to get her.
Not to worry, I am your genie, your fairy god-writer, here to give you an array of ideas to pick from.
At one point or the other in our lifetime, we will definitely have one friend or the other that moves to a new place that we need to get a housewarming gift for.
A question I answered on Twitter the other day gave me the idea for this article.
There are myriads of things that can serve as housewarming gifts, from household appliances the tweet above states to kitchen utensils, and so much more.
There are a few things I believe you should consider before you choose what kind of items will serve as the perfect gift for anyone you intend to give them to –
- Ask them if they have a gift register. People usually have gift registers, listing out things they need, that they already have. This is usually to prevent more than one person from buying the same item.
- Have a general idea of things they might like
- Ask them about the colour schemes they intend to use for their interior decor
- Ask them what they already have so as to know what you can get them
Now that we know these, here are 25 items that can serve as a housewarming gift:
