Let’s face it: when it comes to housewarming gifts, wine is so passé (besides, someone else is sure to bring it!). While we love that signature bottle as much as the next person, we at nousDECOR thought it’d be fun to start thinking afresh about what to get your lovely new neighbors for their official reception into their new residence. Here are five new ideas to try for welcoming your hosts to the neighborhood, or helping old friends make their new house a home.
1. Fresh bread from a local bakery*Since they've just moved in, they'll be likely to have very little food on hand, which makes a new loaf the perfect moving-in snack (and will go with that cheeseboard and wine they may have gotten from other guests). Plus, you'll get to introduce them to your favorite bakery in town—an excellent way to welcome them to the neighborhood and make their new, unfamiliar surroundings feel a bit more like home. *Unless they are gluten-free, in which case we suggest a nice olive oil from a specialty shop.
