Housewarming Gifts That Will Guarantee You a Return Invite
Moving into a new house is a big deal and deserves to be celebrated. Before you show up at your next housewarming party with a basic bottle of red, or worse empty-handed, come with one of these luxe gift ideas. A housewarming gift is a nice gesture and a way to truly make your friends feel special and settled in their new home. From a modern punch bowl to fancy cheese knives, these gifts won't just prepare your friend for becoming entertainer-of-the-year, but will get you named favorite guest ever.
LSA International Ivalo Punch Bowl Set & Ash Lid
There is just something so charming and retro about a punch bowl. This LSA International Ivalo Punch Bowl Set & Ash Lid ($168) is the perfect house-warming gift for your friend who is always putting on a fancy fete.
Cathy's Concepts Monogram Slate Tray & Glass Dome
Sure, you could put cheese inside this Cathy's Concepts Monogram Slate Tray & Glass Dome ($58), but you could also put knick-knacks, jewelry, pictures, and so much more.
World Market Large Assorted Live Potted Succulents
Flowers used to be our go-to house-warming gift, until we realized what a nuisance they were for the host! Not only do they have to immediately cut and arrange the flowers into a vase, but they die just a few days later. Instead, these World Market Large Assorted Live Potted Succulents ($23) work for everyone (even if they don't have a green thumb). Plus, they can be dealt with later, after your visit.
Williams-Sonoma Williams Sonoma Hario Pour Over Kit
Your friend will be grateful to you every morning as they pour themselves an amazing cup of coffee. Pour-over kits can get a little pricey, like this Williams-Sonoma Williams Sonoma Hario Pour Over Kit ($200), but if you count cost per pour, it's totally worth it!
Luks Linen Cari Peshtemal Denim & Salt
This Luks Linen Cari Peshtemal Denim & Salt ($52) throw has so many uses, which makes it the perfect option for a last minute house-warming gift. Use as a blanket, or tablecloth, or hand towel — really, whatever feels right.
