Housewarming gifts your friends will actually use (and get you invited back again)
Bring on the dinner parties.
It’s an unspoken rule of the millennial lifestyle that you and your pals are going to rent, and then have to move house, and then rent, and then move and rent with seemingly no end in sight. That means there’s always going to be another housewarming on the horizon and you don’t want to be the person who comes empty-handed – or the person whose present instantly gets binned when everybody’s left the building.
We’ve curated an edit of affordable housewarming gifts that your friends will fall in love with and use again and again, with the help of a few home interiors experts.

We chatted to Alessandra Wood, interior design site Modsy’s Director of Style, to get her advice on the ideal housewarming gift.
She told Marie Claire, ‘Housewarming gifts should be three things: thoughtful, useful and affordable. There is no need to outshine others with an expensive gift; as long as it is from the heart and something you can envision your friend using, your job is done! Try to think of a gift that brings people together and will also add a pop to the decor of their new home…Anything marble is sure to be stylish and is a major home decor trend for 2019.’
For a more practical present that’ll go a long way, DIY and interior design YouTuber Hermione Chantal said, ‘The best gift I’ve received since moving into my new home has been a helping hand. Many of my family members and friends pitched in to help with painting, cleaning, plumbing and other bits around the house, which has been absolutely invaluable.
