Odds are you know someone who has recently moved into a new home. If that's the case, what better way to celebrate their big milestone than with a thoughtful present? Whether they're hosting a grand housewarming party or just having a smaller get-together with their near and dear, there are tons of one-of-a-kind gift ideas they'll actually make use of and love.

As a rule of thumb, when shopping for the best housewarming gifts, look for items that are practical yet also sleek enough to put on display in their new place. A state-of-the-art coffee machine that makes the frothiest espressos, luxury bedding sets for the good night's sleep, and a digitized picture frame that holds hundreds of photos are just some unique ideas to get your creative wheels turning. But of course, you can go the more traditional route with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, a stylish coffee table book, and a low-maintenance houseplant—trust us, they're equally as thoughtful. All of that and more below.

Once they taste a freshly-brewed, frothy cup of coffee from Nespresso, they'll never want to drink from another machine.
