Ideas for Giving a Memorable Housewarming Gift


Moving into a new home is usually a combination of stress, excitement and hope for the future ahead.

Whether it’s a new house or rental, it’s a great excuse for a party (aka “house warming”), and the perfect time to celebrate by giving a thoughtful housewarming gift.

(Or to treat yourself to a well-deserved pressie if you’ve just moved and unpacked a gazillion boxes)!

While the exact origin of house warming parties and gifts are unknown, it’s a concept that’s been around for centuries.

Why Give a Housewarming Gift?

It’s steeped in tradition, appreciation and celebration!

Would you believe us if we told you the term is a literal one that comes from guests bringing firewood as a gift? True story! The wood was burnt to “warm” a new house in the days before heating was a common necessity.

The celebratory nature is believed to have begun in France and Russia, where housewarming parties took place after the construction of the house was complete. Those who participated in its building were invited to eat dinner and celebrate together.

A Modern Twist on a Timeless Tradition

Overtime, the focus has shifted and other items (such as the humble, modern house plant) have been popularised to mark a new beginning.

At Hawi, we think there’s nothing quite like saying congratulations and toasting to the future with something a little more special and luxurious.

Here are our favourite suggestions for housewarming gifts your friends, family, co-workers and clients will love:


Designed for those who love to host and can’t wait to entertain, this gift box is the ideal touch of practical luxury!

Fast-forwarding to post move – after everything has been unpacked and the settling in begins, why not spoil the recipient (or if you’ve just moved – treat yourself) to at home spa treatment with treats!

You can choose exactly what you’d like included in your own curated Hawi Gift Box.

Seeking inspiration? We suggest a divine bath salt soak, aromatherapy scented candle and some other snacking goodies of your choice from our favourite Australian brands (think: chocolate, roasted nuts and/or biscuits)!
