Buying a housewarming gift, especially when it’s not the recipients first home can be a tricky task so we’re here to help you purchase the perfect pressie.

But firstly. let's take a look at where the housewarming gift idea originated from?  While the actual origins are unknown, the term comes from the act of warming a new home, whereby family members and friends would bring firewood and build fires in the new dwelling.  Besides warming the house, the act was also thought to ward away evil spirits.  Houses that stood empty for a while were thought to harbour spirits and the fires would help banish them!

These days, turning up with some kindling would probably be sniffed at, so here are some of Bell and Blues most favourite gifts to give to celebrate their new abode. 

Bread, Salt and Wine
