We all have that one special friend.
You already know – the one we don’t have to hear from every single day but we always know what’s up.
The one friend that can always cheer us up no matter how bad our mood is.
Your friend that enters our home without knocking and the one who just got a new place to live and you now have zero clue what to get them as a housewarming gift.
Well, do not despair, listed below are the best of the best. 7 Foolproof Housewarming Gifts for Your One-Of-A-Kind Friend you can’t go wrong with.
1. A versatile piece of art
A house is not a home without at least one fabulous art piece.
Also, it makes a timeless gift for your beloved friend. But buying people art can be quite tricky.
Firstly, you have to consider the recipient – they are your best friend, you know what will they like and what kind of art can you consider.
Secondly, there’s space.
If your friend has, for example, recently moved into a new apartment which is an industrial-style loft, go with something small with a high impact.
Something that will add a soft and romantic reprieve from that copper piping, knobs for coats and pot racks, and shelves such as ‘Dreamed the same dreams’ by Rob Ryan.
2. Ice ball maker
The ice ball makers are just perfect for those who love crafting cocktails.
They make any drink way more fun, and cold for much longer.
Go with silicone ones from which the ice is removed much easier and make sure they are dishwasher-safe so that your friend can experiment and make things such as infused ice balls with mint leaves and citrus for example, or even coffee balls.
This is a cool and fun gift that won’t break your budget.

3. A set of cool mugs
Mugs are something every household needs.
Especially because they can serve both as drinking utensils and as decorations.
But, as a best friend, you have to make sure those mugs are extra special.
There is now a great thing called custom photo heat-sensitive mugs, which basically do as their name suggests – show photos once they are filled with something warm.
You can either make some meaningful and cute mugs or you can make something they won’t have the guts to put in front of their parents.
That’s right, I’m talking drunk photos, embarrassing moments, all that – on mugs.
4. A cool houseplant
We all love houseplants.
But, there are plants that are just perfect to be given as housewarming gifts because they represent and bring luck, prosperity and wealth to any household.
Firstly, there are palms, which remove formaldehyde and xylene from carpeting and when placed in colorful planters, they tend to activate missing elements of Feng Shui in the space.
Secondly, there is the money tree or Pachira, which is the symbol of good luck.
Next, there is a rubber plant that symbolizes abundance, wealth and good fortune.
Finally, there are orchids that represent love and deepen friendships, jade plant that brings good fortune and many, many more.

Universal gift cards are probably the most practical housewarming gifts you can give. 7 Foolproof Housewarming Gifts for Your One-Of-A-Kind Friend you can’t go wrong with.
Because they require zero effort and can be used however the receiver likes.
This is especially useful for people with long friendships that have already gifted each other everything there is to be given, so they’re like:
“Look, take this card and buy whatever you want, I’m done!”
6. An indoor fountain
Indoor fountains are stylish, pretty and relaxing.
They make a perfect gift for those who just moved into bigger apartments or houses.
They soften up every space and just create an overall relaxing vibe.
Not to mention that, according to Feng Shui, water is the best decorating element since it attracts wealth and prosperity into the household.
Its power is also really enhanced by its ability to shapeshift – from liquid over solid all the way to gas, whenever it wants.
