5 Thoughtful Housewarming Gifts

There is no denying that moving to a new house can be stressful, but the light at the end of the tunnel is entertaining your loved ones in a place that is truly your own. If a friend or a family member has just moved into their new home, a housewarming gift is a must when you visit their new place. However, finding the perfect housewarming gift can be a bit of a challenge as it must be thoughtful, aesthetically pleasing, but most importantly - useful.

Anim8.lk has made a list of wonderful housewarming gifts that meet this criteria that your loved ones are sure to enjoy!

Customised Fridge Magnets

One of the most challenging parts of choosing a housewarming gift is the fact that you don’t want to give a gift that will clash with the house furnishing. If you’re worried about this, customised fridge magnets will make the perfect gift. While we have a large selection of fridge magnets, a popular option is our Classic Polaroid Sized Fridge Magnet. It’s a fun, cute, and useful gift that your friend is sure to love since you can include pictures of the two of you!


Personalised Coasters

Coasters are a must in any new house, especially when new furniture is involved, as it ensures no drink will leave a ring mark around a new table. These Custom Acrylic Coasters are a great gift option as you can personalise it with pictures, quotes, or even a pattern that the giftee will like. These coasters are so cute that no one will forget to use them!

You can also pair this gift with customised glasses or mugs. Personalised mugs and glasses are a very popular gift and at Anim8.lk we are in no short supply. From Engraved Shot Glasses or Engraved Whiskey Glasses to Personalised Glass Mason Jars, we have it all!



Is the person you’re shopping for an avid cook? If so, we have a range of kitchenware that will be a much welcomed housewarming gift! A few thoughtful and useful kitchen decorations include; a Spice Rack, Mahogany Serving Board, Monogrammed Charcuterie Board, and a Wine Bottle Holder. If your friend entertains a lot, another great gift would be a Lazy Susan. These are all excellent gift options if your loved one is a master chef and spends a lot of time cooking.

If you’re not sure whether the giftee already has a wine holder, we suggest gifting a Pinewood Wine Bottle Box and with a fine bottle of wine inside - afterall, a bottle of wine is always an enjoyable gift!



A house only becomes home when one fills it with things they love, which is why gifting homeware is always a wonderful housewarming gift idea. You can choose something that is both decorative and practical, and we have a large variety of home decorations which can be made even better through customisation.

Some great options that your loved one will get a lot of use out of include, Custom Aprons, an Engraved Ice Bucket and Personalised Cutlery. These gifts are great if the giftee loves to cook and entertain, and throw in a Customised Tote Bag because why not? For more decorative gift options, we suggest giving Decorative Board Letters with Prints or Table Deco Words. These two gifts are completely customisable and add a touch of warmth to any room.


Home Organisational Products

After moving in, the real challenge begins - organising all your stuff! A thoughtful and helpful gift would be a home organisational product. For instance, a Sunglasses Holder can go a long way if the giftee has a large family, or if they have a large collection of sunglasses! Another option would be a Short Wooden Stool,which can be used as a bedside table or an extra seat during big parties. 


Ultimately, a housewarming gift is to celebrate a new milestone in your loved one’s life and there is no better way to celebrate than with a personalised gift from Anim8.lk.
