Happy Housewarming!

I'm currently at a point in my life where my friends are doing big things - engagements, weddings, babies, and... buying their first homes! How exciting, right?!  With two of my best friends both buying homes, I've been on the hunt for the perfect little housewarming gifts.  Here are some of my favorite finds:



Monogrammed Acrylic Pitcher |  Pitchers may seem a little unnecessary, but I think they're so useful.  In the summer, I keep a pitcher full of lemonade or infused water in my fridge at all times just for my personal enjoyment.  They're also great if you have to do some last minute entertaining.  I'm all about useful gifts, and this one is about as useful as they come.

Moscow Mule Mugs |  Moscow Mules are my drink of choice, and I've slowly been turning my friends on to them.  If you wanted to go all out on this one, you could also provide the ingredients for Moscow Mules - Ginger beer, vodka, and lime.

Agate Coasters |  I've been swooning over these lately.  I desperately need a set to split between my nightstand & my desk.  They're a little pricey to order, but I've heard of people having luck finding them at craft and flea markets.

Coffee Table Book |  Everyone needs one of these.  This one just happens to be extra fabulous.

Rug |  Since you can't be there every morning to tell your best friend how pretty she looks like you could in your sorority house days, why not get a little rug to remind her?  (There are also rugs with reminders to turn off your curling iron... Sign me up for that one!)

Wall Monogram |  This is my absolute favorite gift to give friends who have just gotten engaged!  I do the couple's married monogram, and then offer to paint it for them when they choose a wedding color or theme for their home.

Cheesy Grin Cheeseboard |  Whenever I use a gift from someone, I always think about the gift giver.  I wouldn't mind someone thinking of me when using this fabulous cheese board ;)

I can't fit everything I love into one collage, so here are some other favorites!



Do you have a "go to" housewarming gift?  Anything on the list you'd like to see in your own home?!

Happy Thursday, ya'll!  We've almost made it to the weekend :)

XX,

SS

  9. I love those cake stands that you picked. I think coffee is always a great housewarming gift, but I would have to say that homemade cupcakes are my go-to gift. They are delicious and my favorite thing to bake and decorate!

    Great post, as always!
