I am sure that many people who have been invited to housewarming parties have had a great deal of trouble finding the perfect gift. If you don’t know the hosts all that well, if they just moved next to you for instance, it’s even more difficult to purchase something, but even if you do know them, let’s say your friends just moved into a new place, it’s still quite the quest. You never know exactly what they need, how much you are supposed to spend, and the options are close to infinite. A good idea in this case would be choosing the path of the fun gift, as everyone enjoys a cool, fun present, but if you don’t know what they find funny, then that may be a little tricky. There are some presents, however, that can get you out of any situation, like a whiskey gift set, which can be actually used at the housewarming party.
Getting a gift that can be used at the party sounds like the perfect solution. You don’t know if they need that particular item for their new home or they find it useful or cool, but for the minimum you thought they could draw a benefit from it at least for one night, so you are off the hook. On the other hand, if you really want to give them something they could enjoy for most of their stay in that house, here are a couple of tips you can use. Find out what others are getting. The host might not be your best friend, but surely there is one person who is, so ask around and find the closest source. They might be able to help you get on the right track and give you some examples of what the host needs or would like to have in the house. It’s also useful to find out what several other guests are bringing, because that will give you an idea of the budget they’ve allocated for this thing. This way you will know if the whiskey gift set idea had been a good one or you would have been out of the grid.
Another thing you can do, but this only works if they live next to you or nearby, is pop up for a visit before the party. You can pretend you wanted to know if there was anything you could do to help or bring along and take a quick peak at the house, see what kind of stuff they have, so that you can get them something that matches the decor. However, if all of these seem to much for you, then you can’t go wrong with kitchen or bar gifts, as everyone uses tools and gadgets in the kitchen these days and no one can have too many glassware, especially party givers, so the whiskey gift set may perfectly be the best idea for a housewarming gift.
