Cozy, practical and super-fragrant housewarming gift ideas.
Getting ready to help your friend or family celebrate their new home, but not sure what to get them? Sure, you could go with some hangers or generally hilarious packs of toilet paper, however, we have a better idea…treat them to fragrance! It’s the perfect way to help them feel infinitely cozier as they settle into their new space. To get you started, here are our top 5 housewarming gifts everyone will love (mixing and matching is majorly encouraged).
1. Hand Soaps
No sink is ready for handwashing without a fragrant hand soap placed beside it – clearly making this one of the ultimate housewarming gifts you could bring. They’re perfect for each bathroom and kitchen sink and they’re sure to be a win with any house guests that come over in the future. We have a few recommendations when it comes to formulas; check them out:
- Gentle Foaming Hand Soap: Our most iconic (and bubbly) hand soap. It’s blended with nourishing vitamin E, softening shea extract and aloe that delivers plenty of hydration in a luxurious foam. Shop here.
- Gentle Gel Hand Soap: Made without parabens or dyes, this smooth blend of shea extract, aloe, vitamin E and natural essential oils gently cleans hands without drying them. Shop here.
And don’t even get us started on the fragrances…from fresh to clean to fruity to sweet to woodsy, there’re so many to choose from that you may want to grab the homeowner more than one. If you’re not sure where to start, check out favorites Kitchen Lemon or Black Cherry Merlot.
2. 3-Wick Candles
Need we say more? Candles make a house feel like a home – with a cozy ambiance and fragrance that make anyone feel welcome. And our 3-wick candles don’t disappoint – they smell amazing in every room, whether that’s a small office or a spacious living room. If you need even more reasons to love them, they’re right ahead:
- Made with natural essential oils
- Beautiful room-filling fragrance
- Amazing quality from beginning to end
- Evenly melting soy wax blend
- Every candle is 100% guaranteed
And when it comes to fragrances, our 3-wick candles run the gamut. For the homeowners that like to keep it sweet and sugary, take a look at the delectable Strawberry Pound Cake. If the host of the housewarming party is into the outdoors, you may want to take a peek at Tiki Beach or Mahogany Teakwood. Pro tip: Pair whatever candle (or candles) you grab with a candle holder to make wherever they place it just that much more special.
3. Wallflowers Plugs & Refills
What’s better than the gift of fragrance? The gift of always-on fragrance. Our Wallflowers welcome you home right when you walk in the door, so this gift recommendation completely embodies the theme of a housewarming party. Pick up a few fresh, clean scents (looking at you Rose Water & Ivy and Bergamot Waters) and a decorative wall plug to keep their house feeling more like home every day. Hint, hint: You may want to let the hostee know that we get new seasonal scents in all the time – point them to new arrivals when they’re ready for more refills.
4. Single Wick Candles
They’re just as amazing as our 3-wicks, but in a compact jar that fits anywhere – especially small spaces like book nooks, end tables, etc. Our single wick candles are sure to be a win whether you gift them in a bundle or by themselves. Another reason to love them: they’re great for homeowners who don’t know what scents fit the home’s aesthetic. P.S. We love bright, happy fragrances that perk the place up, like Cactus Blossom and Peach Bellini.
5. Gift Cards
If none of these are sounding right for the party, don’t fret! A gift card is perfect for when you want to spoiler the happy homeowner, but you aren’t sure what would fit their aesthetic. Let them pick! Added bonus: They’re also great for restocking things like hand soaps or candles once they run out of the other home goodies they got as presents.
