Getting a housewarming gift for someone can either be a very fun and rewarding experience or a stressful and annoying one. The secret to making it pleasant is putting in the effort and actually getting to know the person but also having some inspiration to help you along the way.
A little bit of research goes a long way so we did our homework and today we’re ready to share with you some of the best housewarming gift ideas for men we could find.
An Amazon Echo Dot would be a cool idea for a housewarming gift, especially for men who tend to be more practical and more into gadgets than women usually are. The Echo Dot is a voice-controlled speaker that lets you talk to Alexa and ask her to play music, make calls, set alarms, timers or control your smart home devices.
Since the person you’re getting this for just moved in, there’s a high chance they don’t have all the little details in place just yet. It’s very likely that they don’t have a smart doorbell and that would make a really cool gift. It’s fun and it’s useful at the same time. The Ring doorbell can be connected to compatible Echo devices so you can talk to the visitors through Alexa.
The Google Nest would also be a thoughtful and cool housewarming gift for someone. It’s a smart thermostat that doesn’t require programming… and let’s face it, that’s the single most annoying thing about every single regular thermostat. The Nest programs itself by learning the temperatures that you like. You can also connect it to wi-fi and change the temperature from your phone, tablet or laptop. It also turns itself down automatically when you’re away.
Smart light bulbs would also make a great housewarming gift. The Philips Hue, like many other smart accessories on this list, works with Alexa and can also be connected to Apple HomeKit. It can be paired to the Nest thermostat for full automation to create a routine. It’s easy to install and you can quickly pair it with the Hue hub once you download the app.
Pretty much everyone would love to have a Roomba but few actually get around to buy one. That’s what makes this such a cool housewarming gift.

It uses a 3-stage cleaning system designed to loosen, lift and then suction the dirt, dust and hair from floors and carpets. It also has a whole bunch of sensors that let it know when it needs to concentrate on certain areas and that teach it how to navigate around your furniture.
If the recipient of your gift has pets, they’ll surely appreciate something like this. This is the Hoover Power Scrub Elite pet cleaner. It’s designed to remove stains and dirt that are embedded deep into the carpet using 360 degree brushes and strong suction. It’s powerful but also gentle. It uses a two tank system.
