The first step when moving into a new home is moving all your stuff in. But that’s not the only gift you should consider giving. There are plenty of thoughtful yet affordable gifts for your loved ones to continue making memories and creating memories as you settle into your new life together.
The key to finding a good housewarming gift for your couple is picking a present that is not only practical but also sentimental. And remember, cooking and baking in the kitchen are always fun with two people who love to cook.
Here are 27 good housewarming gifts for couples
1. A blender
A blender is an excellent gift for a couple for your new kitchen. It helps make smoothies and milkshakes as well as blend up a salad. A perfect way to use your new blender is to make breakfast smoothies or milkshakes on a weekend morning before you head out to work or school.
2. Baking accessories
Baking gifts will come in handy when you have people over at the house. If they do not have the baking accessories needed, they will surely appreciate getting them as a housewarming gift. Things like measuring cups, baking sheets, and mixing bowls can be used for more than baking.
Even if you do not want to cook, there is nothing wrong with getting a cookbook. You can browse through the pages and get ideas of what to make. The recipes are also full of nutritional information so that they can be helpful for dieters and families with children. Alternatively, you could get a gift certificate from your favorite restaurant or bring an Italian pizza delivery to your door!

For any coffee lover, a new coffee maker is an excellent housewarming gift for your loved ones. A couple who enjoys brewing their coffee will appreciate picking this present up.
