Housewarming Gift Guide

I'm finally getting to that age where my friends our buying houses or condos - or, at least making a move with a significant other. I can't say I've bought all of them a housewarming gift, but in my effort to be better, it's something I'd like to do going forward. After taking inventory of my friend group, they all tend to fall into the four categories below. These groups are general enough that they likely apply to your friends, as well! There's a little something for everybody based on different interests and at different price points.

Home Sommelier

I think we all have that one friend couple that enjoys wine wayyyy more than any other drink option. While the easy route would be to pick up a bottle of your own favorite wine as a gift, there are other just-as-easy gifts that will last a lot longer.

Fur Parents

Moving into a new home is just as stressful for any pets involved, as it is for the humans. I'm sure most of your friends would understand if you only got their pets a gift, but I've also included a few things for the owners, as well.

Hygge House

This is the list for your friends that like to stay home on a Friday night and watch Netflix. They have piles of blankets and subscribe to the Scandinavian lifestyle trend of 'hygge'. You never want to leave their place when you visit because it's just so damn cozy.
