Its getting harder and harder to find something with peoples varied tastes. Get them a $100 Keg gift card. After moving into a new house a nice night out would be appreciated.

A few things that we appreciated recently getting:

- home depot, LCBO or Amazon gift card.. You needs tons of small things when moving into a new house (including a newly stocked bar)
- a charcuterie board setup - ours was a lazy susan slate type board with several cheese knives
- a framed picture of their family - they had taken a picture of my daughter that they had from a recent party that we all attended, and put it in a frame for us

Gift Card is the best. No one will reject it.
Some unwanted gifts will left in basement storage for years or waiting in line to be regifted

I personally would rather receive a GC too, so I can wait to get the stuff that I really need/want.

I always give home depot gift cards as housewarming gifts cause I know how often they'll end up going after moving in.

Gift cards to diy places or housewares stores are never a bad idea. I know I appreciated it when we bought our house because there’s always something more you need.

Like others said, gift card. Canadian Tire or Home Depot or Lowe’s.

There is a Shell promotion on right now for 10% off gift cards. Find it in the Hot Deals section.

Get a gift card. People are finicky with what they have in their homes. People have become minimalists. House warming gifts generally will end up in the basement collecting dust.
