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.
