It can be tricky to find a good housewarming gift for couples because you have two peoples’ interests and tastes to consider. That’s what I had in mind when I curated this collection of housewarming gifts for couples.
I feature gifts that are intended to encourage togetherness so that the couple can create fond memories in their new space. This collection of gift ideas offers you things that the couple will find useful, practical, fun, and romantic!
My husband and I moved in together about 10 years ago.
It was a few weeks before Christmas and I remembered he had introduced me to this cool new product, Himalayan rock salt lamps (this was before they got super popular).
I thought “perfect, I’ll get him one!” Back then, there were basically only two options online, this huge lamp or this smaller lamp that came with candle holders. I really wanted to get him both but I couldn’t afford them so I bought him the single, large one.
Fast forward to Christmas morning. He hands me my gift and when I opened it I almost started crying. I rushed him to open his gift so that he could see why I was freaking out.
He had gotten me the smaller lamp with the candle holders, and together we ended up making a complete set!
I’m looking at the large salt rock lamp in my room as I write this now and I’m filled with joy that I can share this story with you. Those rock salt lamps have been present for so many happy memories.
The right housewarming gift can bring couples so much joy!
I hope this list helps you find the perfect housewarming gift for your couple friends! Keep an eye out for the Joy tips that I’ve included for certain items. These tips will help you maximize the joy that your gift will bring!

Housewarming Gifts for Couples Under $25
This lovely, multi-purpose wood tray can be used as a serving platter or as a catch-all tray for couples to unload their pockets at the entrance of their new home. This housewarming gift for couples provides an elegant solution for preventing clutter.
Wine Cork Shadow Box
Making memories and drinking wine? This housewarming gift for couples encourages the happy couple to collect bottle corks. If that means they have to spend some romantic time unwinding together and drinking wine, so be it.
Joy tip: It can be difficult to uncork wine. Pair this gift with an electric bottle opener!
I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t need these magnetic clips. They can be used on refrigerators or whiteboards to hang notes, photos, or just anything you want to keep handy.
I also use them as chip clips because my other chip clips seem to get lost so easily. Somehow these always find their way back onto the refrigerator so when I need a clip, I know exactly where to look. This inexpensive set comes with 12 magnetic clips.
Hanging Photo Display
One of the exciting things about a couple moving into a new home together is all the new memories that they are going to make. This hanging photo display can help them slowly build up a collection of loving memories that will spark joy whenever they look at it.
The chalkboard lets them write whatever meaningful message they want, and the clips make it easy to hang up pictures or mementos of different shapes and sizes.
These aprons are just fun. Spending quality time in the kitchen together can be a hoot, and these matching aprons will make the experience sweeter. You can choose from a selection of puns and funny phrases that the couple will enjoy.
I’m pro anything that brings couples closer and wearing something that matches has that added “we belong together” effect. Plus, the pockets and water-repellant material makes these practical too.
Housewarming Gifts for Couples Under $50
Spice Rack Organizer
I wish my husband and I had one of these when we moved in together years ago. It is such a great gift because the couple might not have any spices if they’re just moving in together, plus this product comes with free spice refills for 5 years!
This housewarming gift for couples makes cooking easier because the spices are organized, labeled, and easy to access.
Clear Bird Feeder
Watching birds together on a lazy day can be so sweet and relaxing. This housewarming gift for couples offers an excellent vantage for observing any bird that comes to feed.
This clear birdfeeder attaches to windows, providing a perfect opportunity to enjoy the birds.
Smart Bulb Set
You know that moment when you’ve cozied up in bed and you realize that you forgot to turn off the light? With these smart bulbs, you don’t have to get out of bed!
You can ask your smart speaker or use a phone app to turn off the lights or set the mood by changing the color! You can also set a schedule for your lights to turn on or off whenever you want them to.
Joy tip: If you’re having people over, use the music sync setting to create a party vibe!
Matching Bath Robes
Housewarming gifts for couples should serve a need, and the best ones also make the couple feel closer. Everyone needs a good bathrobe, but wearing a matching set with your partner is fun, and kinda hot when you’re living together!
Unbreakable Wine Glasses
I first saw these at a friend’s dinner party and I was blown away by how elegant they look and how practical they are. They’re impact and shatter-resistant, and dishwasher safe too!
This housewarming gift for couples allows them to enjoy a romantic glass of wine without the worry of cleaning broken glass.
Joy tip: Give them some of their favorite wine along with the glasses so that they can try them out!
This is one of those functional housewarming gifts for couples that will just make life easier for them. Keeping the laundry sorted along the way can keep things smooth on laundry day.
This sorter is extra useful because each section has its own set of handles so that it can be carried separately.
Personalized Cutting Board
My friends gave my husband and me a beautiful, customized cutting board with our names on it and we thought it looked so nice that we ended up hanging it up in our kitchen instead of using it as a cutting board lol.
Whether they use it for its intended purpose or not, the couple you give this to will be happy to receive it. It comes in Walnut (pictured) or Maple.
Wine Opener and Chiller
While I do enjoy that little sense of victory whenever I manually uncork a bottle, it’s SO MUCH better not to struggle at all to open a bottle.
With this cordless, rechargeable opener and chiller set, the couple can enjoy chilled wine anywhere they want without worrying about messy ice.
Cup Cozy Deluxe Pillow
I don’t know how it happens, but we lose our remote the second we put it down on our bed (maybe we have too many blankets and pillows lol). Luckily, you can use this cup cozy pillow to hold drinks, remotes, cell phones, and whatever else you want handy on the couch or bed.
The pillow is made of insulated foam so that it not only keeps your drinks from spilling, but it keeps them cold or hot too.
I definitely like fondue more than my husband, but on nights when the kids aren’t around and it’s just him and me with some candles and romantic music playing, he seems to enjoy the fondue just fine.
Couples can use this gift for a romantic meal (I especially love dipping fruits into melted chocolate for dessert), or for when they have friends over to their new place.
Set of Tray Tables
My husband and I LOVE to eat in bed and we’d wanted a set like this for years. We finally got a set, enjoyed it for a few months, then our youngest daughter opened it on the floor and sat on it as if it was a bench. The trays are sturdy, but she definitely broke one.
This housewarming gift encourages couples to enjoy their food in any room they want. Plus, they are a handy romantic tool because they make it easy to surprise your partner with breakfast in bed!
Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker
I’ve never tried this product, but if I were moving into a new home, I wish our friends would give this to us as a housewarming gift.
Your couple friends can make two breakfast sandwiches at once, so they can both have a hot, yummy breakfast sandwich in about 5 minutes. Isn’t it great to finish at the same time?
Housewarming Gifts for Couples Under $100
Table Lamps with Charging Ports
My sister has lamps like these and I was blown away when I saw them. I was looking for an outlet at her place one day and I didn’t have to reach behind any furniture or bend down to plug in.
This set brings two lamps, ideal for nightstands. Each lamp has an AC outlet, two phone holders, and 3 USB charging ports.
Faux Fur Blanket
Cuddling under a huge, soft, fuzzy blanket with your partner is undeniably wonderful. My husband and I love getting nestled in and keeping warm together as we binge-watch a good series. What couple wouldn’t enjoy the feel of this big, luxurious blanket for a romantic night in?
This housewarming gift for couples is perfect for a hot, delicious meal that the couple didn’t have to stress over. The beauty of slow cookers is that you don’t have to watch over the meal, leaving plenty of time for couples to slow dance in the kitchen instead.
Cheese Board Set
My husband and I agree that this lovely cheeseboard set is an absolute must-have for couples! We love using it when our friends come over, but it’s even better when we use it for a romantic night in. We get so excited filling up the board with yummy goodies and then sitting down to watch a movie together or having an indoor, candlelit picnic.
This set includes serving utensils, bowls, and dishes to create an appetizing charcuterie board. Plus, the drawers expand the surface area to hold more deliciousness!
Joy tip: Put together a small gift basket of fine cheeses and crackers so that the happy couple can use the board right away!
Give your couple friends a home filled with good music. My husband and I have a record player and we love going to antique stores looking for old records.
This housewarming gift will make a lovely addition to the couple’s new home. They can put on a romantic record and slow dance around their new place. Plus, this record player is portable as a neat suitcase.
Housewarming Gifts for Couples Over $100
Honestly, I think my husband and I just want one of these so that we can keep adult snacks and beverages handy and away from the kids. However, this is an excellent housewarming gift for couples because this way they won’t have to play rock-paper-scissors to decide who has to make the trip to the kitchen.
This mini-fridge can keep the couples’ favorite refreshments handy so that they can stay in the bedroom as long as they like.
POP Container Set
The push button creates an air-tight seal that helps keep foods dry and fresh. This set brings containers of various sizes so that the couple can keep their kitchen organized. Plush, these are stackable and dishwasher safe.
Ring Video Doorbell
Getting used to living in a new house can take some adjustment, and feeling safe is essential for settling in. This housewarming gift for couples creates that sense of security.
Your friends will thank you for making it easy for them to see who’s at their front door from their phones, and the Ring doorbell is compatible with Alexa.
XL Air Fryer
Cooking together is one of the joys of moving in with your partner. You can give your friends this awesome air fryer as a housewarming gift and they will be thanking you.
The square basket provides plenty of space for multiple servings, it is dishwasher safe, and it includes a recipe book.
Fire Pit with Cooking Grill
Sitting by a fire together is a uniquely pleasant and romantic experience. The crackling noise, warm sensation, and hypnotic embers make this fire pit so worthwhile.
Plus, this particular one comes with a cooking grill attachment. This housewarming gift will give the couple a reason to enjoy their outdoor space together.
I hope you enjoyed this collection of housewarming gifts for couples! Your friends are lucky to be getting a great gift from you!
