I have two close girlfriends who have recently purchased their first homes. With girl’s nights on the calendar quickly approaching, I went searching for the perfect housewarming gift idea for my friends.
Here is what I came up with:
Celebrate by Lauren Conrad
This is the latest book from Lauren Conrad. It is focused on entertaining and party planning – perfect for someone who just bought a house. Get it here: Celebrate | Lauren Conrad
Take A Break and Get Hammered
I saw this idea on Pinterest. It could easy be a gift on it’s own, but I could not resist including it with the rest of my items – especially since our upcoming girl’s night is a wine night!
You will need:
- Bottle of wine or champagne
- Note – Take a break from all of your hard work and get “hammered”
- For the note, I cut a blank greeting card in half and used a Fine Point Sharpie to write the saying.
Spring/Summer Scented Soap
To be honest – hand soap is probably one of the last things you think to buy when you get a new house. This addition to the basket will leave a sweet smell and hopefully remind your friend of you every time they use it! Bath and Body Works is having a sale right now – 5 for $18!
When searching for a way to box up/wrap the gift, I ran into this Graduation Beverage Bin at Target. For only $6 I think it is the perfect way to package the gift – and it was cheaper than a lot of the gift boxes! This bin is great for entertaining and is sure to get use long after you deliver your gift.
I am really excited for my friends and to share this awesome gift with them. It is something fun, useful and definitely unique! Make sure to share your favorite housewarming gifts and ideas in the comments below!
