Seven Housewarming Gifts Under-$75

Seven Housewarming Gifts Under-$75

It has been over a year since I have seen most of my friends.  During that time, people have gotten married, had babies, changed jobs, and many have moved.  Several of my friends bought homes or upgraded to larger apartments.  And now that we’re free to socialize again, I’m being invited to more than a few housewarmings.

Here are seven great gifts that won’t break the bank.

This Coffee Scoop Clip is my go to gift under-$10.  I have three of them in a closet at home in case I need a gift in a hurry.  Just pair this handy item with a bag of freshly ground local coffee and maybe a mug, and you have a pretty awesome gift.  It also makes a great stocking stuffer.

I gave these Luma & Co. handblown glass cloches as Christmas gifts this year, and they were a big hit.  They are beautifully made, go with any decor, and look great on a coffee table.

The White Company also makes a really beautiful cloche that comes in two sizes in a more modern style.  But if you’re hoping for something more affordable, I love the Original Matchstick Bottle with matches and built in striker.

Games can be a fun gift for a new homeowner.  If they have outdoor space, this giant rainbow Jenga is worth a look.  For a lover of indoor games, may I suggest a nice cribbage board?

A great cookbook makes a great gift.  I tend to stick to the classics — Joy of Cooking, Mastering the Art of French Cooking — but you can also go with a newer option.  If you prefer something more recent, try Salt Fat Acid Heat or Cook this Book.

A wine decanter is a must for any drinker of red.  This one from Crate & Barrel is popular, and well-priced.  If your recipient is hurting for cabinet space (hello, city living), a Vinturi wine aerator is also a great gift.  And if you are looking for the gift for the wine drinker in your life, this Ullo device chills, aerates, and removes sulfites from your wine — bye, bye hangovers.

This Creative Co-op Terracotta Bowl has been featured here a couple of times this year, but it’s just that good.  It matches any decor.  It useful and stylish.  And once you buy one, you will also start hoarding them to give to people as gifts.  Because I can’t think of a better quick gift under-$20.

The good soap.  It looks great by a kitchen or bathroom sink, and it’s useful too.  This Soeder grapefruit soap is pretty fab, it also comes in a few other scents.  I also love this <$25 Milk and Honey hand soap.  Malin + Goetz also makes a great hand wash, though the packaging isn’t as pretty.
