Housewarming gifts can usually fit into these categories: kitchen essentials, house decorations and food items. Essentially anything for the house and anything related to living in the new house. No matter how much she would appreciate a pair of leather pants, they still don’t quite seem appropriate as housewarming gift (however, if you don’t care about correctness, do go ahead and get them).

Here are my picks for some wonderful housewarming gifts that will warm the recipient’s heart (or at least that are useful for their new pad).

Michel Design Works Au Chocolat Kitchen Towel

Perfect housewarming gift for your chocolate lover friend. This 100% kitchen towel is oversized, and beautiful yet functional. It also doesn’t break your bank if you buy a couple.
