“Take them a loaf of bread,” my mum advised me when I asked her what to bring a friend who had just moved house. 
10 Housewarming Gifts That Arent Sh*t
At the time I scoffed. There was no way I was turning up with a loaf of Kingsmill, no matter how empty my friend’s new kitchen cupboards might be. However, having since moved several times myself I would prefer a loaf over a cactus. Plants are great, don’t get me wrong, but they take up valuable space and the soil spills out when you move flats for the umpteenth time. 
Bread definitely isn’t the answer either, no matter how fancy and sourdough it might be. So, I’ve done some strenuous research and identified ten presents you can buy your newly-homed loved ones that feel thoughtful and personal and will guarantee future invitations. Iko Blue Glass Cocktail Shaker, Oliver Bonas, £25 The recipient will always be ready to host a gathering with this gorgeous cocktail shaker. Nothing screams “I’m a fully-fledged grown up and can throw a damn good party” quite like having your own barware. 
Buy it now. Large Bowl Glass Scented Candle, John Lewis, £40No-one was ever upset to receive a scented candle and this one is particularly attractive. Not only will it last ages and smell divine, but it also makes a lovely decorative ornament once the wax has all been burned. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. 
Buy it now.Personalised Oak And Brass Vinyl Storage Rack, Not On The High Street, £49Simple, classic and achingly cool, this gift will ensure your loved ones are dancing around their (extremely well-indexed) new home for years to come. You can personalise it free of charge for that extra thoughtful touch. 
Buy it now.Moon & Cloud Bookends, John Lewis, £30 Don’t let the dreamy cloud and moon design fool you, these bookends are made from concrete and will sturdily prop up your friends’ favourite novels. They also look brilliant at either end of a mantelpiece or on their own as ornaments. 
Buy it now.Penguin Kissing Watercolour Print, Etsy, £8.01  Lots of people think artwork is expensive, but this colourful, uplifting animal print proves them wrong. The bright palette goes with most colour schemes and will perk up any room. 
Buy it now.Personalised Wooden Pot Planter, Not On The High Street, £22.99 The green-fingered among us will enjoy showing off their succulents, herbs or flowers in these personalised planters. If they aren’t into gardening then they could also use these to store keys, fruit or unwanted housewarming gifts. 
Buy it now.Marcato Atlas 150 pasta-maker, Amazon, £75 Is there a greater gift than the gift of fresh pasta for all eternity? We think not, especially when the machinery is this chic. This pasta-maker is ideal for foodies and carb-lovers everywhere – plus, you’re likely to benefit at some point, too. 
Buy it now.Mikasa Cheers Set of 4 Crystal Balloon Gin Glasses, Amazon, £18.83  Who doesn’t want to sip gin from what is, essentially, a giant glass bowl? The recipients can put these straight to use when you arrive if they haven’t unpacked their own glassware yet. 
Buy it now.Duck Egg Blue Photo Frame, Oliver Bonas, £18A house isn’t really a home until the photographs are up, so help your pals on their way with this stylish metal picture frame. The duck egg blue is a safe choice if you have no idea what colour they’re going to paint their walls yet. 
Buy it now.Large Gluggle Jug, Trouva, £32 I will never, ever stop loving these, and the noise they make as you pour (can you work it out?) never ceases to tickle a room full of adults. Staying hydrated has never looked so stylish – or kitsch.
