Most of us don’t really think about housewarming gifts and we simply give one out of obligation. But to someone who is shifting their whole life from one house to another, this housewarming gift can be a lifeline. When your loved one is stressed out about moving and unpacking, these gifts can cheer them up – making them momentarily forget about the stress.

But what should you give them as a present? Well, most people give houseplants or crockery as housewarming gifts, but these are old-fashioned and boring. Here are some unique housewarming gift ideas that are sure to bring a smile to your dear ones’ lips; they will see that you have put thought into the present and that will mean a lot – certainly more than when someone gives a generic housewarming gift.

1. Scented Candles

When looking for unique housewarming gift ideas, candles are your best friends. Not only do they come in a multitude of scents and colors, but everyone likes them! They are multipurpose: they dress up the house, smell heavenly, and can change the mood of the room instantly. They also come with wooden wicks that make you feel as if you are sitting by a warm fireplace listening to it crackle. Your loved one can simply light up a scented candle and get to unpacking.
