Smart advice on chic housewarming gifts
A great housewarming gift is more than just a bottle of wine or sparkling cider - although those would pair great with a set of wineglasses! A well thought-out gift can be stylish while also being functional in a new home. Personalized gifts like guest towels, house plaques, cutting boards, or serving trays are all useful, yet unique, and help a person really put their own stamp on a place. Or, for someone on their own for the first time, small appliance gifts are always a great idea - think toasters, KitchenAid® mixers, coffeemakers, and the like. And for your techie friends, video doorbells and smart thermostats will get their new home running smoothly!
