If your friend has invited you over to their housewarming party it is clear that you should but don't have to take a gift, if they are not having a party but you know your friends have just moved and you are going round to their home for the evening it might be nice to take them a gift to mark the occasion for them.
If you are really stuck for an idea as to what to get someone as a house warming gift scented candles or candle holders or photo frames are simple but nice gifts that everyone has a use for, if you know your freind is really into cooking a food related gift like a cookbook holder would be a good gift idea or you could have a little fun and be different and buy your friend something like a bonsai tree kit.
