The Best Housewarming Gifts for the Holiday Season

As we near the winter holidays, your schedule may be packed with seasonal festivities. If you’re fortunate to have generous friends and family host you at their home, bringing along a small housewarming gift goes a long way to spread the cheer of the season. That being said, it can be tricky to pick out just the right thing. Today, we’re highlighting our top picks for gifts for the home this holiday season.

Something Indulgent

As festive as this time of year can be, hosting big holiday events can be stressful. Your friend or family member may feel under pressure to get all their gifts in order, prepare a meal, and deck out the house in décor. A thoughtful gift that encourages your host to take a moment for themselves can be just the encouragement they need to slow down and soak it all in. This holiday-themed bath bomb from Lush is infused with sweet orange-patchouli and sea salt for a long, relaxing soak. Plus, it’s budget-friendly and doubles as the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone on your list.

Something Practical

While a scented candle or bottle of wine always works, it can be nice to add a personalized touch when you’re bringing a gift for the home. If your host is always inviting friends and family to gather at their place, add something special to their party spread. This gorgeous wood cheese board from Pottery Barn is the perfect size for a charcuterie display, and even comes with the option for a custom monogram. For an extra-generous touch, load the board up with a delicious spread, and let your host know it’s there’s to keep even after the party is over.

Something Festive

The holiday season puts a strain on peoples’ finances, and sometimes it can be hard to justify buying festive décor for a once a year occasion. Take the stress off of your host by arriving with a holiday-themed item for the home. They can show it off to guests and pull it out again next year for the annual celebration. This elegant candelabra from West Elm brings the typical candle gift up a notch, and serves as the perfect centerpiece for the dining table. You can also opt for something a bit cozier, like this super-soft plaid throw blanket from Target that will encourage your host to indulge in some much-needed rest and relaxation after all the festivities are over.
