Updated: 8/13/2023 | Perfect Housewarming Gift Guide

When we purchased our first condo in Seattle, our friends asked us what types of gifts we needed. We thought long and hard and eventually came up with this list to help guide our friends.

We wanted products that would make our home feel cozy and like a true home sweet home. 

If you’re looking for ideas on what to get your friends for their new homes, use our guide to find items that they’ll appreciate.

Perfect Housewarming Gift Guide

#1 A Cozy Throw

In our home, our chihuahua steals our throws. So if your friend has a pet, it might be a great gift for their furry friends too!

#2 Plants

#3 Candles

And if your friend already has quite a candle collection, we highly recommend gifting scented candle refills so that they can continue using their favorite candle vases to illuminate their home.

#4 Throw Pillows

Use code SCHIMIGGY to get 10% off your orders at Sam and Zoey.

#5 Throw Pillow Cases

And if your friend already has throw pillows, buy them new throw pillowcases so that they can switch up their living room decor.

#6 SPACE Shower Expander

We live in Downtown Seattle and many of our friends live in small spaces! So do we!

To maximize your small space, we recommend the SPACE shower expander. It’s a shower curtain that is built so that you have extra room to expand your arms and shower comfortably no matter how big or small your home is.

#7 Air Fryer

Air fryers are these magical appliances that allow you to cook your favorite fried foods in minutes without saturating your food in oil. Say hello to healthy and quick meals with your new air fryer!

We highly recommend this air fryer by Okaysou. It works like a charm and comes with a fry basket.

#7 Reusable Napkins

Reusable napkins are great for any home. It allows us to save costs on disposable paper towels and looks great on our dining room table. We like to use a wire basket to neatly organize our towels.

Reusable napkins can be made from anything. We like to use cotton bandanas and cloths at home. You’ll find many different brands on Amazon.

Check out our article on eco-friendly alternatives for common household goods to see how you can also go plastic waste-free!

#8 A Decorative Tray


Decorative trays are a great way to organize any home and make it look more “put together.” We like to put our candles, flowers, and other goods like remote controls or keys on trays.

The trays can also be used for serving food or beverages, like wine!

#9 A Bidet

Omigo Bidet

No one actually purchased this for our home, but we really wanted one!

We ended up going with the Omigo bidet which has a heated water dial for those cold Seattle winter evenings. It’s been a lifesaver in our home, especially when we’re low on toilet paper.
