Moving to a new apartment or house is a scary and exciting time, but it can be made less scary (and more exciting!) with the kindness of friends and strangers. Lots of times, that kindness is sent from afar, emailed, left on a doorstep, or shipped from another state. Whether you’re looking to welcome the new neighbor upstairs, send love to friend who just moved out of town, or congratulate your favorite couple on buying their first home, here are 126 creative ideas for new home gifts they’ll love.

You’ll no doubt find the perfect something (or many somethings) on this list. Mix and match to create brilliant gift baskets and combination gifts — a plant with some gardening equipment, measuring spoons with homemade bread, a cooler filled with craft beer and some fresh fruit for a garnish … you get the idea. Want some specific ideas you can buy now? Take a look at our list of favorite products that make great housewarming gifts.
