37 Housewarming Gifts People May Actually Want

Get your friends something they'll be proud to use.

A housewarming party is always a good time — whether you're packed into a(n extremely charming!) one-bedroom apartment or wandering around your friend's sprawling new digs with a white fence and a yard for the dog. But showing up empty-handed is an absolute no-go (seriously, don't even think about it). We rounded up some thoughtful gifts you can bring in tow so you aren't banned from the next shindig!

1. A bottle of ~good~ olive oil because you should listen to Ina Garten when she sings its praises. BTW, this is one of her favs!

2. An adorable fridge refresher may look nicer than a crusty old box of baking soda they used in their old place. JK. It will definitely look nicer.

3. A candle as a throwback to their home state or a place they hold dear.

4. A QR Code for their Wi-Fi password.

5. A basic tool kit because emergencies can and will happen!

6. A legendary coffee grinder even coffee snobs will adore.

7. A personalized cutting board they'll cherish for ages.

8. Or a folding cutting board so less of their ingredients go to waste.

9. A pretty potted houseplant so maybe they can become the old plant lady their Insta likes history would indicate.

10. Or a set of tiny faux succulents your #1 plant killer won't have to bother watering.

11. A strong bottle opener so they won't have to depend on anyone else to strong arm a bottle.

17. A customized Christmas ornament they'll treasure 'til the end of time... even if they move!

18. And an adorable garlic house so the bulbs can finally get some privacy.

19. A deodorizing candle meant to erase the funk of your fav four-legged friend can also do major things for weird kitchen smells. Also, it doesn't smell like a deodorizing candle!

20. A gorgeous spaghetti measure to lend a loop.

21. A customized doormat that's so cool the neighbors will want to steal it but then everyone'd know because it has the *true* owners' name on it!

22. A mini waffle maker and waffle mix that'll help whip up a quick and easy breakfast treat!

23. A set of six "drinking buddies" can help identify whose glass is whose and also make for some extremely silly snaps.
