For house warmings
Practicality is key when it comes to house warming gifts, so get something both practical and elegant that the new homeowners can use to entertain guests. It's not advisable to buy gifts too closely related to home furnishings in case it clashes with the decor style of the home.

For a baby shower
Baby showers are often tricky occasions to choose gifts for, but best choices are things that can be used and kept as mementos. Bilteryst advises against giving toys ars they may add clutter to the house.
