Hooray! Joe is moving into a new home…again. This isn’t his first housewarming party. He already has basic appliances, kitchen gadgets, and a pile of “new home” signs in a box that will be stored in the attic until his next move. You definitely want to avoid your gift ending up there!
This time around, try something different. When choosing a housewarming gift, get a gift with a sense of humor. These funny housewarming gifts will be cherished even long after they move again.
1. Gnome Planter
Silly housewarming gifts that bring life to their new home
Try a whimsical twist on this traditional housewarming gift by giving a plant in a gnome planter. Gnomes have been rumored to guard buried treasure in German fairy tales. However, in modern times, they are still thought to bring good luck to a new home.
For additional humor, give one of these head planters where the plant becomes the “hair”.
Or give them a loveable hanging sloth planter. This is perfect for the person who loves animals but doesn’t have time to care for a pet. Plants symbolize life and improve air quality indoors, so you can’t go wrong with one of these gifts.
2. Middle Finger Candle
Rude housewarming gifts
Looking for a housewarming gift for someone with a vulgar sense of humor? Try one of these middle finger candles. They come in several colors so you can match their decor.
If toilet humor is their thing, give them an I can’t wait to poop in your new toilet candle. These make funny housewarming gifts for guys. If you want a more racy type of rudeness, provocative human body candles will do the trick.
3. Novelty Toaster
Funny housewarming gifts for the kitchen
Everyone needs a toaster. But even if they already have one, they probably don’t have one that makes Spiderman toast or leaves an image of Darth Vader.
Or give them a unique waffle iron which imprints the face of Bob Ross, Snoopy, or Pokemon onto their waffles. For convenient meals that cook while they are at work, get them an unusual slow cooker decorated with Dungeons & Dragons or Dragon Ball Z.
4. Novelty Hot Dog Skewers
Hilarious housewarming gifts
Everyone with their own yard will eventually get a grill. They will probably get one sooner rather than later after receiving this gift. These lewd skewers turn hotdogs or marshmallows into body parts, although not anatomically correct!
You can also give them funny corn holders designed like dogs, corn, or sharks. Tip: to store corn holders, stick them into the ends of a wine cork to prevent getting stabbed by the sharp ends.
Then to raise a glass to their new home, give a set of bathroom humor shot glasses. Make sure you include a bottle of their favorite libation, which you will be drinking from toilets or porta potties!
5. Mortgage Toilet Paper
Gag housewarming gifts for the bathroom
We all know mortgages are not cheap. Anyone who has bought a home in recent years knows the feeling that you might have just sold your soul for a piece of real estate. Let them laugh it off with mortgage humor toilet paper. (Yes! This is real!)
Or get them a toilet light so they don’t miss the bowl during middle of the night trips to the bathroom. While these color changing lights are funny, you have to admit toilet lights are also practical gifts.
They can’t wait for their afterwork cocktail? Give them a shower drink holder. Some fit a beer can, while others can hold a wine glass or even a whole bottle of wine, for those extra long showers!
6. Fruit Tap
Funny housewarming gift ideas for the home bar
Step 1: Hollow out a melon. Step 2: Install the tap. Step 3: Fill with your favorite beverage. Can you think of a better way to celebrate!
After they create their home bar they will also need a bar guide to learn how to make delicious drinks. The Cocktail Books with a Twist series are some of my favorites. With titles such as Tequila Mockingbird or Gone with the Gin, these will have lovers of fine literature conjuring their own masterpieces through cocktails.
Abracadabra and a magic rope wine bottle holder will provide a conversation starter long after they finish unpacking. Make sure you give a bottle of wine with the gift, or this gift will fall flat.
7. Mr. Sneeze Egg Separator
Funny moving in gifts for the kitchen
Gross! Those with an offbeat funny bone will get a kick out of this egg separator where the whites come out through the nose. And that’s nothing to sneeze at!
For something less disgusting try a singing pasta timer that sings tunes from the Godfather or 80s hits to let you know the pasta is done.
For additional kitchen whimsy, give them a dinosaur soup ladle or pasta spoon
8. Custom Ski Shot Holder
Uniquely funny housewarming gifts
If you are looking for something wildly unique for a housewarming gift, this will make your day. For a funny custom gift give them a shot glass holder with a saying chosen by you.
Time to be a kid again, or not, with a recycled skateboard planter or table. Or for the person who has everything, give them a chair made from recycled snowboard or skis. These gifts will be appreciated by those trying to reduce their carbon footprint or just traded in their life of adventure for domesticity.
9. Pizza Blanket
Useful but funny house warming gifts
Pizza fans will stay cozy and warm on chilly nights huddled under a giant slice of pizza! You can get one that looks like a tortilla too!
On the other hand, Star Wars groupies will love the mood lighting emanating from a Lightsaber floor lamp.
Afraid of spiders? A handy bug vacuum will suck those arachnids up without them worrying about the feeling of squishing it with a tissue!
10. Goofy Cat Scratcher
Funny new home gifts for pets
Pets can have a hard time adjusting to a new environment. Plus nobody wants Fluffy scratching up the furniture in the living room before it even loses that just bought smell. Rub a little catnip on a fancy cat scratcher. My cat has the laptop scratcher. When I am working at my computer my cat is busy “working” at hers.
Cats and dogs will also feel comforted with a new pet bed. Help them adjust to their new surroundings by placing a dirty t-shirt from the laundry in the bed. This will help them feel comforted by their owner’s scent.
Want to get a gift to fill those endless blank walls? How about a silly pet portrait? You can have a personalized housewarming gift made for them from a photo of their pet.
11. Mistaken Lyrics Coasters
Funny housewarming gifts for entertaining
Everyone has that certain song where they just can’t figure out the lyrics. Make these songs a topic of conversation with some mistaken lyrics coasters. They come in classic rock, 80s hits, inappropriate, and more
For a novelty gift, give them a charcuterie board in the shape of body parts, a piano, or a guitar.
You can also get a funny wall mounted bottle opener which they can mount outdoors for BBQs or inside for when weather drives guests indoors.
