It’s customary to send housewarming gifts to new homeowners! Regardless if they bought a house, rented an apartment or moved into a new room, it’s an occasion to celebrate with friends and family.
Fun fact – back in the day around the 16th century, housewarming gifts used to be practical items like firewood, bread, candles or rice. Traditional housewarming gifts were ceremonial and symbolic, with the addition of being useful!
Here are some examples of traditional housewarming gifts:
- Wine: be happy and never go thirsty
- Plants or flowers: have a lively home
- Bread: may you never go hungry
- Rice: have a home overflowing with love
- Candle: may light shine during your darkest hours

Presenting a new homeowner with chocolates will never go amiss. It’s almost like a reward for going through all the hassle of moving in, unboxing and setting up the new house.

Aquariums, zoos, cat cafes or petting zoos aren’t just for kids, contrary to popular belief! It’s rather comforting to look at animals or even pet them, and definitely works as a change of scenery as compared to the usual city life. For an added bonus, book a feeding session with penguins, or take a tractor ride around a farm to add a little jazz into the outdoor experience!
It’s customary to bring some wine or champagne to a housewarming get-together. Arguably, it’s one of the best housewarming gifts in Singapore. However you can make your wine gift stand above the rest with an exquisite gift box!

If your recipient has a delicate diet or food allergies, there are non-edible options available for a housewarming gift too!
Scented candles would be the ideal choice for a new home. They help set a homely mood, and create a relaxing atmosphere for the new occupants. After a hard week of moving in, sorting boxes, endless cleaning and vacuuming, your recipient can then light up a candle, sit back, and relax.
We recommend our Spring Awakening as a beautiful housewarming gift! It comes with a Round Gel Light Rosemary and an exquisite mini bouquet of baby’s breath. Refreshing and light, it makes for a wonderful welcome gift.

Another option for a beautiful housewarming gift would be flowers! A new home means a new start – a blank slate for a fresh beginning. What better way to celebrate the occasion than a bouquet of fresh flowers? Not only do they bring joy and a sense of freshness, their scent and colours help to provide a more cheery atmosphere to a new home.
Think out of the box, and consider purchasing some flowers in a vase! Beautiful flowers arranged in a stunning vase arrangement are the perfect housewarming gift. Take a look at what we offer here on our Table Flower Arrangements page.
