Plants and Flowers that Are Perfect for a Housewarming Gift


Colorful, delicate, and sweet, alstroemeria, aka Peruvian Lilies, symbolize loyalty, support, and connection between friends and represent the strong bond between them.

Warm a new home with the color of sunshine by gifting sunflowers to the new homeowner or renter. The radiance, joy, and uplifting quality of these sunny blooms will warm any abode. Symbolizing love, joy, optimism, hope, and peace, sunflowers make an exceptional housewarming gift.

Jade Plant

Give a gift that can stay in the family for generations with a jade plant. With consistent care, jade plants can live for 100 years. This beautiful botanical has plump, green leaves as it’s a member of the succulent family, which means it’s also resilient and easy to care for. A great housewarming gift, jade plants bring positive energy to a home as well as good luck, prosperity, and wealth.

Heartleaf Philodendron

A symbol of health and abundance, the heartleaf philodendron also expresses love and affection for close friends and family. Philodendrons are great indoor plants and are easy to care for. This beautiful green plant will liven up any space and is a great housewarming gift for a best friend, a close acquaintance, or a family member.

Turtle Doves

Turtle doves mate for life which is why they are a symbol of love, peace, and friendship. So, no matter how far away a close friend or family member moves, giving them one turtle dove while you keep the other means you will be friends forever.

Friendship Bracelets

Not just a gift for kids, friendship bracelets are for all ages because of their timeless symbolism. Whether you handcraft a pair out of colorful string yourself or select more trendy or sophisticated jewelry, surprising your BFF with matching bracelets is a sweet sendoff.


The pineapple has been a sign of welcome and hospitality for centuries, which could have orginated by friendly tribes who regularly hung pineapples near the entrance of their village. Eventually, pineapples were placed on a person’s front porch to signify hospitality, welcome, friendship, and “come on in” for a chat. So, display a pineapple outside your home to welcome someone to your neighborhood or gift a pineable to someone who moved into a new house as a sign of warmth and friendship.

Eucalyptus Scented Candle

Candles are great for creating a warm, pleasant, and welcoming ambiance and make fantastic housewarming gifts. They ignite all the senses with their soft flicker of light, sweet aromas, and warmth. Eucalyptus-scented candles are especially invigorating with scent that promotes balance, relaxation, and stress relief. After moving to a new home, what could be better?

When selecting a housewarmng gift, think about what might help make their new house feel like a home they have lived in for years. Whether it is a token of your friendship or a symbolic flower arrangement from Walter Knoll Florist, they will cherish your housewarming gift forever.
