Find the Best Housewarming Gift Ideas

If you’d like to help your friends or family turn their new house into a home, a housewarming gift is a lovely way to do it. You’ll find a huge range of options at our malls, whether you’re looking for something practical or sentimental. Peruse below to get inspired on what gift you can bring to the housewarming.


If your friends are moving into their very first home then there’s a good chance that they’re going to need a lot of gadgets for the kitchen. A Smeg Blender or Citrus Juicer from Better Life will kick-start their mornings with some fresh juice or a smoothie. For that after-dinner coffee, a coffee machine from Nespresso is the perfect gift. Or you could keep it simple and pick up a tried-and-trusted cookbook from Borders. Discover our range of household stores at Mall of the Emirates.

Accessories for the Living Room

Rather than going for the usual cushions and soft furnishings, a better housewarming gift idea would be an unusual object or antique such as those on offer at Al Jaber Gallery in Mall of the Emirates. Their collection of silver dhows or their brass and copper lanterns bring a little bit of heritage into any home. You could treat the new homeowners to home accessories from Harvey Nichols or Debenhams or visit Zara Home at City Centre Mirdif for a selection of soft furnishings, cushions, and delicate ornaments.

Paints and Painting Supplies

If they’re facing an uphill battle with decorating, picking up a few essentials such as some paintbrushes and turning up to help them get that living room decorated in double-quick time is just as good as buying them a new kettle!

Small Furniture

Something as simple as a cheeky little coffee table from Crate and Barrel at the Mall of the Emirates, or a stylish laundry basket will be just as appreciated and can go a long way to helping them turn a house into a home.
