Towel cakes are popular and inexpensive gifts for every new home party. As you probably understood from the name – they are made of towels (which are always necessary for the household) and “garnished” with some kitchen small appliances. (as an idea it’s something familiar with the baby diaper cakes).
You can find a wide variety of ideas and options for those of you who are creative. Towel cakes are not hard to do and don’t take a long time to be made. Actually, they are one of the simplest DIY home projects. But to be successful, you need to be careful in folding the towels during the assembly process.
What makes this idea one of the best housewarming gifts is that this present itself is the impressive way of presenting some of the most useful essentials for the kitchen as a gift set. Such essentials as measuring cups, spoons, spoons, garlic press, kitchen scissors, salad tong, spatulas, pan, silicone tip tongs, peelers, squeezer and many many more. It’s just your creativity that put the final touch. Of course, you can always find some tutorial and specific ideas when googling.
2. Mosaic House Number Kit
Creating a one- up to four-numbered mosaic address sign with this kit is funny and when done – useful. Kids also love it, so if your friends or relatives have children, this is a very good idea for a housewarming gift. Depending on the vendor, most of the kits contain mosaic stones, wooden board, template, numbers templates, glue, grout, sponge, and mixing stick. It usually measures approximately 8 x 8 inches (20cm x 20cm).

4. Budget Binder
Okay, nobody wants to talk about money and budgeting when preparing for a new home party, but unfortunately, everyone is concern about the family budget, especially after moving to the new house. So you can definitely help your dear friends or relatives to bind the budget with this quite useful Budget Binder.
I was thrilled to find it free for download and immediately save it on my computer to have a deeper look inside. I can say it’s amazing and very detailed, so will be useful for everyone, no matter if some of the expenses outlined will be not so necessary.

5. Tree To Be Kit
Let your friends or relatives grow a real plant tree from a scratch. I mean – seeds. You know the saying that if two people plant a tree together, they will be together forever? Well, I don’t know if this is actually true (forever is quite long time to know) but gifting a tree (or future tree) is an elegant way to wish the family happy long-lasting life and a hard-rooted home.
Of course, there are varieties of trees to choose among.
One of them is The Red Maple Tree Kit, which is probably the easiest and least expensive, but high-quality seed as well. You don’t have to be a horticultural expert so planting won’t be hard for your friends. It’s good to know that The Red Maple is one of the most common trees in the eastern United States, grows up to a height of 50 feet and make beautiful fall foliage. The Red Maple is also known as the state tree of Rhode Island.
Another option is to opt for a mini Giant Sequoia Tree Kit. The great thing about this product is that it comes with everything you need (except for water), so there’s no guess-work. The kit contains:
– a plastic tube (greenhouse)
– seeds (between 5 – 10)
– white pebbles (to cover the seeds)
– instructions on how to grow the seeds (easy to follow).
This is a fun gift for everyone and to me – definitely one of the best housewarming gifts ever. Great for those who’ve never done such a gardening work before.
Advice: when arranging the gift, you can put some extra gardening tools such as:
- gloves for him and gloves for her
- fan rake, trowel & culti-hoe toolkit
- all in a bucket
- or everything in a gardening apron for her and a gardening belt for him.
Only left to wish them to enjoy!
