They each feature lifelike details and bucket-loads of charm. Get one for yourself while you’re at it!

Elli Tea Towels, $14.95

Black and Olive Country Road Elli Tea Towels shown side by side.

Elegant and affordable, these favourite tea towels are a no-brainer if you’re after a budget-friendly, superb-quality housewarming gift. Thick, absorbent and nice enough to not have to shove in a drawer when people come over, they’re gentle on hands and heady-duty when it comes to drying. Choose from eight glorious colours, including our top pick, black – because it shows fewer marks. I have several of these beauties and swear by them!

Destination Books, $185

Assouline Capri and Mykonos hardback books shown side by side.

If the new homemaker in your life has a favourite overseas destination, look no further than Assouline’s collection of incredible non-fiction books. Big, heavy and brightly coloured, they’re books to proudly have on display around the home. And the fact that they’re choc-full of insightful destination information and stunning photography is the cherry on the cake. Other titles include Bali, Ibiza, Palm Beach, Miami, Tuscany and Amalfi Coast.

Nudie Rudie Bath Mats, $79

Sage + Claire Nudie Rudie Bath Bat on a paved floor.

From Sage + Clare, these artisan-made cotton bath mats are as playful as they are useful. Among the many reasons we love them is the fact that they’re ultra fluffy and feel beautiful underfoot, plus they come in a large range of colours for all kinds of palettes. After a gift for someone with a great sense of humour? This is it.

SOHO Cutlery Set, $59.95

Black, gold and silver cutlery on top of a cream tea towel on a wooden table.

Gone are the days when cutlery was all stainless steel silver – nowadays, anything goes. These gorgeous sets from Freedom come in a choice of silver, gold and black, with each set containing 16 pieces, enough for four people. Statement cutlery is something many people admire but don’t think to buy for themselves, so we think it’s a sensational housewarming gift for friends who love to entertain.

KOKI Fruit Bowl, from $24.95

Black wire fruit bowls on top of a buffet unit.

Made using black iron wire for a bold finish that grabs the eye, these quirky fruit bowls make a truly versatile housewarming gift for homewares lovers. Serve salads in them, use them for keys and trinkets on a console table – or pile them high with chips or popcorn. The options for use are endless. But the real beauty of these bowls is the fact that they double as art. Love it!

J’ai Soif Carafe and Glass Set, from $89

Collection of coloured Maison Balzac carafes and glasses.

Individually hand-blown with borosilicate glass, Maison Balzac Carafes are perfectly suited to bedside tables and office desks. They actually come in two sizes: 800ml with a matching tumbler and an 1800ml XL version without a tumbler. These are stunning housewarming gifts for anyone after a prettier alternative to their overused water bottle!

Italian Table Styling Set, $250

In The Roundhouse Italian-style plates on a dinner table.

A new home deserves new tableware and there are few sets as memorable as these Italian-themed plates by In The Roundhouse. This particular set includes eight 25cm Italian word plates and eight 21cm wave side plates, but they’re also available individually if you’re just after a few as serving gifts. Made using bone china, they’re safe for use in the dishwasher and microwave. Cue the lasagne and tirimisu!

Wash And Lotion DUO + Tray, $84

Boutique handwash sits behind a white sink with a copper tap.

After a housewarming gift for someone who just renovated? Developed in Australia by ex-Block contestants, this al.ive hand wash and lotion set makes the ultimate finishing touch on new bathrooms. Aside from their cruelty-free and vegan formulation, they’ve become a huge hit in Australian homes for the fact that they come in such a wide colour palette. From dusty pink to soft blues and neutrals, the muted tones of the packaging play nicely with any interior style.

380g Soy Candles, from $49.95

A glasshouse candle in its packaging and shown in a woman's hand.

Now, most people think of candles when they think of housewarming gifts, but not all candles are created equal! If you’re after a long-lasting option that doesn’t break the bank but always smells heavenly, Glasshouse candles are our top pick. These beauties are triple-scented and use non-toxic soy wax, so they’re safe for use in all homes (with supervision of course!).

Kitchenaid Mini Food Chopper 3.5 Cup, $169

The Kitchenaid Mini Food Chopper on a white stone bench surrounded by cooking equipment and food.

Pint-sized, easy to store and cute enough to leave out on the bench, the Kitchenaid Mini Food Chopper is one of our favourite housewarming gifts for home cooks. It comes in six Kitchenaid colours, which is fabulous for matching it to the colour of new kitchens, and it holds 3.5 cups. From whizzing to chopping, this handy helper does it all and will be very well received – trust us!

Onyx Gold Teapot, $85

T2 Onyx Gold Teapot on a coffee table next to mugs of fresh tea.

Moving is hard work. But what better way for loved ones to unwind than with a freshly gifted golden teapot filled with piping-hot brew? With a gleaming 24-carat gold surface, this beautiful T2 pot uses fine bone china for a next-level cuppa in between unpacking boxes. It comes with a stainless steel infuser, making it suitable for loose tea leaves – and best of all, it makes enough for two! Just don’t forget to throw in a box of peppermint tea.

2 x Wave Glass Sets, $79

Fazeek wave water glasses in clear and pink on a white table.

From the prettiest pink to brilliant blue, these unique and wavy Fazeek glasses come in colours to suit any personality.
