When choosing a housewarming gift you want to strike a balance between practicality and luxury. The best housewarming presents are useful things that the receiver is likely to need and use on a regular basis.
However, that being said try to choose things on the higher end of this scale by choosing items that are especially beautiful, quality and luxurious. These are the things that the receiver might not feel justified in purchasing themselves and will truly appreciate such as genuine art coasters or a stunning platter for entertaining.
Remember 1-2 quality well thought out items are better than a bunch of useless items that they have to find space for in their new home.
Everyone has a favourite mug that they cradle full of steaming hot coffee in the mornings, why not get them a new favourite mug that is fine and luxurious and exquisitely decorated such as the Australian Wildlife Mug.
Or perhaps a new set of pretty cups and saucers? It is always nice to have some extra special cups to bring out when friends are visiting, a great housewarming gift is a set of memorable genuine artist designed teacups and saucers such as the Alma Granites teacups pictured below.
These teacups do come in several different patterns and colours so there is likely one that suits the person you are buying for, or you could curate a set with one of each colour so that there is never any confusion over whose cup is whose.
Coasters are something that every home needs in order to protect surfaces from damage caused by cups and glasses. Many people accumulate a haphazard range of coasters without too much thought, and end up with a range of not matching or simply undesirable coasters in their house.
A housewarming gift is a great opportunity to give a proper curated and beautiful coaster set to work seamlessly with the persons home. It may seem simple but an interesting and visually appealing coaster nearly always becomes a talking point with friends and family over a cup of tea or coffee.
Give them a great set of coasters and some interesting stories to tell with the Australian Wildflower Coaster Set which features 6 different Australian wildflower designs and their names so that you can recognise them when you are out and about too!
Some other wonderful sets to choose from are the Aboriginal coaster sets which come in a range of different colours, designs and patterns, one example is the Jukurrpa set pictured below, they are all made in Australia with unique and colourful Aboriginal designs.
