Celebrate the Season with These Housewarming Gifts

  1. Candles: Scented, unscented, filled with metallic animal skeletons or in reusable containers, candles have been a trendy and traditional gift forever! Priced from $17-150.
  2. Digital Frame: Once a small item designated for the office desk, these digital frames are now living room worthy and programmable to display a single piece of art, or a slide show.
  3. Essential Oil Diffuser: A virtually silent device filled with water and a few drops of essential oil can make your home smell delicious. With or without lights, these little devices are becoming a home necessity, and some have various wood or stone accents and are beautifully crafted. They are from $10 to more than $100.
  4. Himalayan Salt: From a culinary salt set to stone-like drink ware, to lamps made of this mineral, and even to the perfect seafood grilling slab, Himalayan salt is definitely found in the trendiest of homes.
  5. Home Automation: From door locks, to lights, to cameras, these products allow you to use a smart phone to control your home systems for greater comfort and peace of mind. Price varies from $28 for an outdoor camera or security sensor, to $400+ for a package system.
  6. Local Treats: From Jeni’s Ice Cream to Anthony Thomas Candies, local treats are always a favorite housewarming gift. Consider visiting a local shop in the homeowner’s new neighborhood, too, and adding the business card to your gift so your loved ones can begin exploring their new neighborhood, too!
  7. Organizers: From key racks, to makeup caddies, to kitchen utensil organizers, these handy devices help your favorite new homeowner love their new castle even more! $8-80
  8. Planters: Whether wall mounted, smart, or as a part of a living garden, planters can be a very trendy gift…you just have to look for an on-trend expression of a traditional favorite! $12-200
  9. Pillow cases: Not just your average linens, these trendy items are anything but sleepy. Coordinated to send a message, mark territory, act as art, or thrill kids of all ages, there’s a set out there for any taste.
  10. Robot Vacuum: These handy little gadgets work around furniture to quietly suck up dust and dirt while you’re away or asleep. Programmable and self-charging, they’re a great gift idea in the upper price range.
  11. Smart Appliances: From coffee makers to refrigerators, to automatic pet feeders, appliances are now smart and connectable to your smartphone or home computer. Start your morning coffee without getting out of bed… check if you need milk by looking remotely into your smart fridge. Prices vary.
