  • A nice indoor plant. ANd not much, maybe $20-30

  • A plant would be a great gift.

  • A collective voucher for like Harvey Norman. If you know a big group of people that would like to put in

  • For me absolutely really good quality clean burning candles with a note that says light me and think of all the love our family has for you, and it will fill your home like a big hug

  • I think housewarming are easy gifts as everyone needs something for their home. Maybe a painting , ornament , crockery , cookware , candle/light sets etc anything practically . If you know the tastes of your friend it might make it easier too. There are so many homeware stores that I think are not that overly expensive and they have really nice items .

  • I usually spend around $20-$30 and will buy a serving bowl or vase, bottle of sparkling wine or a scented candle depending on the recipient.

  • I always buy a serving dish, bowl, vase etc – usually no more than about $20 depending on the person

  • champagne is always good if you are not sure on a gift!

  • I think one of those lovely candles that change colour is a lovely simple gift,cost about $10.

  • Cooked food!
    There is nothing worse than eating take away whilst moving.
    A potted plant is always nice as well.
    So is a Welcome mat.
    I once received a salt & pepper set which I loved also.
    Knick knacks are a great inexpensive gift.

    It really depends on who the gift is for.
    If it’s a new neighbour I would say around $20.
    For a friend I would say $20 – $40.
    For family around $50.

  • I’d take a pot plant and a batch of muffins.

  • For a housewarming gift i often buy a quiche dish or container and fill it with some home made baked goodies as I love to bake.

  • I’d buy one plant. Maybe a citrus in a pot.

  • Spend what is comfortable and works for your budget.

  • Maybe a voucher to somewhere like House so they can choose something they need. I’d say around $50.
