He finally has a space to call his own. So now it’s time help him make his new house a home with these cool housewarming gifts for men. From practical items to gadgets and decor, we’ve got all the bases covered.
Cool Housewarming Gifts For Men
1. Scented Candles
First things first, get him a candle to keep his place from smelling like…well, men. A scented candle should do the trick and is a great small housewarming gift for men. This candle has a funny message printed on the front reading: “Good Luck Convincing Your New Neighbors You’re Normal”. Personally, I think this would make a great small housewarming gift from sister to brother.
I love my Ember mug so much. It’s a totally unnecessary but awesome gift. It keeps your beverage of choice at the perfect temperature for hours (if on the coaster). You can set your ideal temperature in the app. For example, I drink black tea which has an optimal temperature of 137 degrees Fahrenheit.
Keep him and his friends safe with this smartphone-enabled BAC monitor. This is a top-rated model which is comparable to police BACs. It gives you an estimated time for when your BAC will be 0%. This is a great way to keep him and his friends safe by knowing when it’s time to call an Uber.
9. Homeowner Manual
This is a great housewarming gift for first-time homeowners. The book has 100 pieces of knowledge that will make him a better homeowner. It has tips on things he’s likely never thought of if he’s never owned a home before. It’s not the most exciting gift on the list, but it sure is helpful.
10. Catch All
I really like this personalized catch-all tray made of vegan leather. It’s perfect for their entryway table where they toss their keys and wallet. You can have it personalized with their initials, which is a nice touch.

These hilarious coasters are a perfect housewarming gift for men. These coasters feature funny sayings like “WTF, use a coaster, please”. But for real, guys sometimes need a little reminder to protect surfaces of furniture. If he has a sense of humor, he’ll enjoy this 6 piece set of coasters.
15. Quality Skillet
He’s going to love you for giving him this cast iron skillet as a housewarming gift. This pre-seasoned cast iron skillet and lid will allow him to cook some yummy food for himself and his guests. This is a quality gift that will last him a lifetime with proper care. A nice wooden spatula would go great with this as well.

Give him a smart thermometer if he likes to cook. These things are so handy and practical for anyone. With this smart thermometer, he can monitor the temperature from his smartphone from up to 165ft away.

This is such a unique and cool housewarming gift for men. This is a weather station which they can set up in their backyard to monitor weather conditions. I received a weather station as a gift a few years ago and it’s become one of my favorite gadgets I own. This one from Ambient Weather gives you a precise reading of the weather conditions in your backyard, such as wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, rainfall, UV, and solar radiation. If you’re looking for something super cool and unique that he’s unlikely to have, this is it.
25. Bottle Bash
This is a great gift for men who love to hang with their friends in the backyard. This is a really fun game called Bottle Bash that can be played pretty much anywhere outdoors. Basically, teams compete to knock their opponent’s bottle off of their pole with a frisbee. It’s loads of fun and a great party game.
31. Whiskey Stones
This is a really cool housewarming gift for whiskey drinkers and will go great with the decanter and whiskey glass set above. He can put these stones in the freezer and use them to cool his beverage of choice to the perfect temperature whenever needed. These stones will cool the beverage but prevent them from being watered down like with ice.
33. Smart Water Leak System
Save him from a major headache with this cool smart home water leak sensor kit. This set comes with everything he needs to set up a smart home system that detects water. Installation takes less than 10 minutes and he’ll be able to get alerts anywhere in the world. Tell him to put one near his sump pump, water heater, and anywhere else a water disaster might occur.
Do you think he’ll vacuum enough on his own? If not, get him a Roomba to help keep things clean around his new home. He can easily program the Roomba to automatically vacuum on a schedule. He won’t have to worry about vacuuming nor the Roomba, as its built-in sensors keep it from falling downstairs or running into objects. It’s a really cool housewarming gift that he’ll definitely use.
35. Phillips Hue Starter Kit
I absolutely love my Phillips Hue lights. Smart home gifts are so cool and useful. This is a starter kit that includes everything he needs to get a Phillips smart home lights up and running. Each bulb can be controlled individually using the app on his smartphone. He can set timers, schedules, colors, and more through the app. Each bulb can be set to one of 16 million color options – so he can find the perfect light setting for every situation.
36. Waterproof Speaker
Give him this JBL Charge waterproof speaker which he can use in the shower or outdoors. It’s IP67 rating means it can be used or charged pretty much anywhere – at the beach, in the pool, or in the rain. It also comes with a built-in powerbank to charge your other devices while on the go.
39. OLED TV
New OLED TVs are absolutely incredible. They’re so nice that they’ve spoiled going to the movie theatre for me. This is an amazing gift if you like, really really love the guy you’re buying for. This OLED from LG has a 120Hz refresh rate, making it perfect for gaming. You can also buy this bundled with an LG soundbar.
41. Backup Battery
Help him be prepared with this awesome powerbank from Anker. It’s got a 256Wh LiFePo4 battery, which means it’s got a ton of power and can last over 3000 cycles. This is a great thing to have around the house for power outages, but also super useful for camping trips or anything outdoors. It can charge a phone 18 times on a single charge or run a mini-fridge for 4.5 hours.
43. Shop Vac
Every guy should own a shop vac, but he might not know that yet. This small, portable wet/dry shop vac from Craftsman can hold up to 2.5 gallons. It can also be used as a small blower. These are great for cleaning up any big messes and for other jobs around the house. These are so handy, he will definitely appreciate it.
