Found on Etsy: Housewarming Pinatas

Bored with the same old bottle-of-wine-in-a-gift-bag approach to hostess gifts? Here’s an idea to bring a little life to the party: Show up at your next housewarming party with one of these pinata houses packed with sweet treats or the makings of a meal.

Show up with a super fun and unexpected hostess gift.

A Houseful of Staples

Fill 'er up with new-home essentials, like non-perishable foods and toiletries.

If you’re not the crafty type, hit up Etsy store The Party Event, and they’ll customize your order. You can choose between a favor box, as shown here, or the traditional closed pinata-style house (it’ll have a roof on the house), both in the color of your choice. You can choose to fill your favor box with household staples like condiments and toiletries (The Party Event even sells cute gift tags for each item), or request that your sealed pinata come filled with the traditional fare: candy!
