Hi everyone! Victoria from vmac+cheese here, happy to be filling in for Tobe while she attends to all things new-house related. I know Tobe has been looking for a house for quite some time, and I am so thrilled that she's finally found a place to call her own! I can hardly wait to see the transformation over the next few months.
One tradition I can always get behind is the housewarming gifts. And let me be clear -- I mean gifts given to you by friends, or gifts you get for yourself! After all, moving is an excellent excuse to pick up a few fun new home accessories, am I right? Those extra touches are what make a house a home!
Today, I wanted to share a couple ideas for things that would make great housewarming gifts. When I moved to my apartment a few years ago, I wanted to find a way to "remember" some of the previous places I'd lived. That's when I saw an image of framed vintage flashcards on Pinterest, and it gave me the idea to frame flashcards featuring my previous street addresses and meaningful dates in my life.
This would be a pretty simple DIY gift to give to someone, and would have a lot of meaning! Or, it'd be an excellent project to attempt on your own -- once you're settled in, of course.
If you're not up for a DIY project, there'd be nothing wrong with any of the following housewarming gifts either...whether for a friend or as a little gift to yourself!!
1. Williams Sonoma Monogrammed Highball and Old Fashioned Glasses, $59 | 2. Amaryllis plants, $22.95 | 3. Cheese club subscription from Cowgirl Creamery, $199-$579 | 4. Round Faux Bamboo Brass Tray, $48 | 5. Agate cheese plates, $60-$75 | 6. Murano glass candy striped tumbler, $48 | 7. Bolinas Flatware, $26 each | 8. Italian faux bamboo magazine rack, $125
Happy Housewarming, Tobe!!!
