25 Funny Housewarming Gifts (That Will Bring The “New” House Down)

If your friend or family member just bought or rented a new house, it’s an excellent idea to gift them a thoughtful housewarming present.

However, many people might bring them flowers, wine, photo frames, and other more standard housewarming gifts.

If you know they are someone that would appreciate a funny housewarming gift instead of a typical one, why not treat them to something they can both use and laugh about?

In this article, we’ll list unique and interesting gifts from various price ranges so that you can find the perfect present for the people in your life that just moved in — and have a great sense of humor!

Here are 25 Funny Housewarming Gifts.

1. The “You Should Have Moved Closer to Me” Candle

Bringing candles to a housewarming is quite standard, but they usually don’t have snarky comments like this one, which states, “You should have moved closer to me, but congrats anyway!”

This is a great buy if your loved one is a fan of sassy comments, especially ones that demonstrate how much they mean to you.

2. Fancy Solo Cups

Red Cup Living 12 Oz Cocktail Cup | Party Cups Ideal for Kids & Adults | Reusable Drinking Supplies for Birthday Party, Camping, Travel Outdoors | Durable & Unbreakable | BPA Free

Just because they moved into a home doesn’t mean they have to lose their youthful side! Fancy solo cups shaped like martini and wine glasses are excellent gifts for that old college friend.

It’s a way to bring the party to their new home without having a huge party (at least not one you have to clean up for hours afterward). If you have an association with frat-style parties and this person, this gift is a no-brainer!

3. Vinyl Record Coasters

Your friend will need coasters if they want to live in a respectable home and keep their tables in mint condition.

But who wants regular old boring coasters when you can have vinyl record coasters? This is the perfect gift for your old-school music-loving friend who just moved in.

Not only are they funny and cute, but they also do a great job of protecting furniture surfaces, so it’s truly a win-win.

4. “I Pooped” Bathroom Guest Book

I Pooped Bathroom Guest Book: Funny House Warming Gift Guests Will Love

A bathroom guest book is a funny gift for a friend who just moved, who you know will have many people over.

What makes this guestbook so special (and funny) is that instead of having their guests sign their names, they have to poop in the toilet first and then sign the book.

There are four guest names per page and 120 pages, so there’s plenty of room for people to sign, even if your friend is planning on hosting a lot. 

Plus, there’s a space for a review, so they can write a funny review — either of the bathroom, the toilet, or their own experience if you will.

5. Toilet Bowl Light 

Toilet Bowl Light

Another toilet-related gift that’s both comical and useful is a toilet bowl light. Any toilet-related gift is a great gift for that friend that’s always making jokes about poop.

But this toilet bowl light, in particular, is excellent for those middle-of-the-night trips to the washroom when you don’t want to switch on the bright overhead light and wake everyone up.

6. Little Box of Obscenities Word Magnets

Magnetic Poetry - Little Box of Obscenities Kit - Words for Refrigerator - Write Poems and Letters on The Fridge - Made in The USA

Another great gift for a friend with a slightly naughty or dirty sense of humor is a box of explicit word magnets.

This is a fun, interactive gift that every visitor will love. You can rearrange the words and make hilarious, naughty stories right on the kitchen fridge!

There are 72 magnetic word titles, so the options are seemingly endless, and there’ll surely be a new story or poem every time you visit.

7. Beef Jerky Bouquet

Beef Jerky Bouquet

As previously mentioned, flowers are a common housewarming gift. But what about a bouquet of beef jerky??

This cheeky gift for the “manly man” in your life will surely bring a few laughs. It comes with real, edible jerky, which is actually shaped like flowers. Plus, instead of an elegant vase, they come in a pint glass that your friend can use once all the jerky is gone.

Finally, it’s nice that you get the option between four different flavors — original, hot, teriyaki, or mixed — so you can tailor your order to fit your buddy’s preference.

8. “Look at This Photograph” Nickelback Picture Frame

Your friend group might love Nickelback’s music or hate it, but either way, the song “Photograph” has become a meme, especially for millennials.

This picture frame is of Nickelback holding a frame. Thus, it’s a subtle suggestion for visitors to “look at this photograph.” Not only is this frame hilarious, but it’s also a pretty genius idea!

9. Junk Drawer Starter Kit

Junk Drawer Starter Kit

Every home eventually has a junk drawer filled with items like batteries, matches, and screwdrivers.

Usually, homeowners gather these things over time and put them into a junk drawer. They’re the types of items that you don’t use all the time but certainly don’t want to throw away.

So if your friend recently moved in, getting them all the perfect items for their junk drawer is cheeky and useful.

10. “Al Dente” Singing and Floating Pasta Timer

Al Dente - The Singing Floating Pasta Timer: Will Sing Different Tunes when Pasta is Ready at 3, 7, 9, and 11 Minutes, to be Boiled with any Pasta in the Pot, Floats in Cold & Hot Boiling Water

Many people bring useful kitchen appliances to a housewarming party, but this “Al Dente” singing and floating pasta man is a hilarious way to cook your pasta and make sure you time it right.

Your friend won’t have to bother about setting the alarm on their phone. Instead, they can throw this man into the pot with the pasta and know the pasta is perfectly cooked when he starts singing.

11. Mr. Sneeze Egg Separator 

Mr. Sneezy Egg Separator

If your friend loves to cook, they may prefer separating the egg whites from the egg yolks for specific recipes, and this can be challenging to do without an egg separator.

But why get them any old egg separator when Mr. Sneezy exists? Mr. Sneezy helps separate the whites from the yolk by allowing the egg whites to drip down its nose.

Is it kind of gross? Yes. But will it make people laugh? Most certainly.

12. Funny Wooden Spoon Set

Personalized Funny Wooden Spoon Set

Another kitchen appliance gift fitting for a friend with a good sense of humor is this set of funny wooden spoons.

They have comical phrases on them, such as:

  • “Spooning leads to forking.”
  • “Stirring shit up.”
  • “Fork it; let’s get takeout.”
  • “You cook, I’ll drink.”
  • “Didn’t say it was gonna taste good.”
  • ” Eat it or starve.”
  • and “Dinner is ready when you hear the smoke alarm.”

There are also baking-specific ones, like “If I don’t have my cake soon, I’ll die.”

13. Funny Bathroom Jars

Funny Bathroom Jars

Bathroom jars are useful housewarming gifts because they help store things like q-tips and cotton wipes.

But these bathroom jars are puny as well. Each jar indicates what it’s for in a comical, sexually-suggestive way, such as “Just the Tip” for the q-tips, “Balls Deep” for the cotton balls, and “Rub It Out” for the cotton pads.

14. “When I Dip, You Dip, We Dip” Dipping Bowls

When I Dip You Dip We Dip Dipping Bowls

Freak Nasty’s “Da’ Dip” is a legendary 90s jam, to say the least, and these bowls highlight it in a hilariously relevant way by putting the lyrics on stacking dipping bowls.

These bowls will look great stacked up in the right order in your cupboard and will make your friend smile, laugh, or even bust out a quick boogie every time they see them.

15. Pizza-Lover’s Door Mat

Funny Doormat

This door mat has a simple tree graph that indicates you’re only allowed to come in if

  1. You live there, or
  2. You have pizza.

Anyone is welcome if they have pizza, but if not, feel free to leave and return when you’re more prepared.

This is a silly doormat that your pizza-loving friend will get a kick out of!

16. Comical Bookends for Bookshelves

Artori Design Book Ends to Hold Books Heavy Duty - Hidden Metal Bookends for Shelves Desk or countertop - Bookend Book Holder for Home Decorative - Gift for Book Lovers and Home Decor (Runaway)

Whoever thought that even bookshelves could be comical?

These bookends bring a bit more life — and interesting “narratives” — to your bookshelf by creating a simple but explaining story to leaned books.

You can get one where the books look like they are falling on a character, one where a superhero is pushing against the books, one where a couple is running away from the falling books, and more.

17. Luke Skywalker Light Saber Floor Lamp

Star Wars Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Floor Lamp | Mood Light | 5-Feet Tall

If your friend is a huge Star Wars fan and doesn’t mind if not every piece of furniture is aligned with “modern design,” this gift is a no-brainer.

It speaks for itself; what Star Wars fan wouldn’t want to have a LightSaber as a floor lamp? This is also a fun housewarming gift for families with kids.

18. Velociraptor Garden Sculptures

Velociraptor Garden Sculpture Set

Another great gift for families or for your friends that just don’t see the point in taking life — or the front of their new house — too seriously is a velociraptor garden sculpture set.

And, of course, if you have any dinosaur fanatics in your life, this gift is perfect for their lawn. Each set comes with two dinosaurs, one big and one small.

19. “From Crook to Cook” Snoop Dogg’s Cookbook

From Crook to Cook: Platinum Recipes from Tha Boss Dogg's Kitchen (Snoop Dogg Cookbook, Celebrity Cookbook with Soul Food Recipes) (Snoop Dog x Chronicle Books)

Snoop Dogg is an unlikely but excellent author of a cookbook, and it’s bound to make your friend laugh.

The title is a play on his past as a crook, and the book is full of “laid-back” takes on soul food recipes. This cookbook may seem like a gag gift at first, but it’s filled with tons of delicious recipes!

20. Fruit Keg Tapping Kit

Watermelon Tap Beverage Dispenser Kit - Fruit Keg Tapping Kit & Coring Tool - Juice DIY Spigot, Beer Faucet, Great Spout to Turn Halloween Pumpkins into Ice Tea & Alcohol Drink Party Cocktails

Whether your friend wants to keep their drinking habits more discreet or just loves a creative, cute gift, this fruit keg tapping kit will surely be a pleasant surprise.

It allows you to fill a watermelon, pumpkin, or other big melon fruit with whatever drink you wish and fill up cups through the tap. This is a great gift for a friend that likes to host events, especially backyard barbecues.

21. Cute Banana Saving Hats

Cute Banana Saving Hats

Overripe bananas are ideal for banana bread, but in most cases, people want their bananas to stay yellow for longer.

And if your friend just recently moved, they have a lot more on their to-do list, so making sure they go to the grocery store for perfect bananas will have to go on the back burner.

How about you get them these cute and funny banana-saving hats to make their bananas look like unicorns or Vikings while actually providing some real use?

22. Indoor S’mores Making Kit

Indoor Smores Fire Pit

An indoor s’mores-making kit is not something anyone would expect to receive for a housewarming gift, which makes it a bit comical.

However, when you think about it, how cool is that? S’mores are delicious, but setting up a whole fire pit takes time and effort and is usually not feasible.

With this kit, your friend can have s’mores whenever they like, on the comfort of their new couch.

23. “Most Likely To Microwave” Oven Mitt

Most Likely To Microwave Oven Mitt

Is your friend always using the microwave? Do they even know how to use the oven?

If you want to give them a funny but practical housewarming gift, get this oven mitt that says “most likely to microwave” on it. Your friend can use it as a real oven mitt or just hang it in their kitchen as decoration.

24. “First-Time Homeowners Survival Guide” Book

The First-Time Homeowner's Survival Guide: A Crash Course in Dealing with Repairs, Renovations, Property Tax Issues, and Other Potential Disasters

This book, “The First-Time Homeowners Survival Guide: A Crash Course in Dealing With Repairs, Renovations, Property Tax Issues, and Other Potential Disasters,” may come off a bit demeaning to some, but for those with a humorous spirit and reasonable humility, it will be a riot.

It’s a great gift for a friend that just bought their first home, especially if they seem a bit daunted by all of the maintenance and repairs that come with homeownership.

25. “The Dog Will Get It” Dish Towel

The Dogll Get It Dish Towel

This ironic dish towel indicates that “the dog will get it,” as in, the dish towel will likely stay right where it is and only serve as decoration.

Of course, this is just a funny schtick, and your friend may very well use the dish towel to clean up as well. But if they have a dog, this could be a great, relevant housewarming gift.

Final Thoughts

Funny housewarming gifts are ideal for celebrating your family or friends moving into a new home. While some of these gifts are pretty nifty and serve various purposes, they all have a touch of humor to make anyone chuckle.
