The Bookblock Gift Guide To… Housewarming Gifts

The Bookblock gift guide for housewarming gifts makes it easy for you to find gifts that will make their new house feel like a home (and guarantee that you’re invited back!)

When someone moves into a new home, there are so many gifting options. Do they love cosy nights in or cooking? Are they big tea lovers? Self-professed chocolatiers? A new home is all about making memories, and housewarming gifts should be well-thought out and tailored to them as they start their new journey. Help them get them settled in with gifts that have a personal touch – from French chocolates to orange & cinnamon candles, here are a few options of some housewarming gifts that you’ll want to keep for yourself…

Nawrap green organic hand towel at Bookblock

For Someone Who Loves Natural and Organic…
This Nawrap organic green hand towel is the perfect option for your natural-obsessed friend. It’s delicate but durable, and the history of this brand will make you want to be part of their journey. Founded in the 1930s, Nawrap originally manufactured mosquito nets – they then realised their material was fast-drying, lightweight and soft, so they grew to produce multi-purpose clothes and towels. Their commitment to tradition forgoes modern machinery for traditional weaving techniques. No dyes, no chemicals, just beautifully soft cotton.

Bookblock sandalwood black pepper candle housewarming gift

For Someone Who Is ALL About Scent
A candle is always a good idea. A soothing, comforting atmosphere is just what you need in a new home to unwind after all the stress of unpacking and moving! Our  earthy, bold Sandalwood and Black Pepper candle has base notes of teak and patchouli, and highlights of leather. It’s made with 100% soy wax and all natural fragrances, with a burn time of 40 hours.

For The Chocolate Lover
If someone you know who’s moving into a new home is a self-professed chocolate connoisseur, this delicious Mixed Praline Gift Box is a necessity. Housed in an ornate gift box with gold foiling, it makes a beautiful gift for the eyes as well as the tastebuds! The selection of fifteen delicious chocolates includes decadent flavours such as Classic Praline, Caramac Cream, Caramelised Sesame, Hazelnut Truffle, Honey Chocolate, Strawberries & Cream, Hazelnut Praline, Almond Praline and Orange Praline.

For The One Who Can’t Stop Drinking Tea
The best tea deserves the best kit! For cosy evenings in and mornings brews, we’re fans of this gorgeous Copper Tea Infuser. It will change the life of any loose leaf tea lover, and for something stylish and sleek, this tea infuser lets you steep your brew to the perfect strength. Opt for an accompanying tea, like our range of MIND, BODY and SOUL Bookblock Deli Organic Tea & Herbal Blends.

For Someone Who’s Favourite Room In The House Is The Bathroom
Make this the first thing on their new bathroom shelf. Älska specialise in generous fragrances that ease the senses. These bath salts from Älska are a soothing and calming bath salt blend containing Himalayan & epsom salts combined with essential oils and enriched with organic botanicals. Just a handful of this is needed for a scented, relaxing spa-like treatment at home, making it the perfect housewarming present for someone who’s into their skincare and self-care.
