We’d tend to go with something funny when looking for a housewarming card, whilst going for something actually helpful for the gift is very important. There are plenty of ideas you could find on the internet on good housewarming gifts, but if you know the recipient well then you should know that they need to replace their 10 pub glasses for some nice ones.
