Showing up empty-handed to a dinner party—especially a housewarming—is never a good idea. But when we're short on time, it's all too easy to revert to the classic bottle of wine or bouquet of flowers. There's nothing wrong with a great bottle of Bordeaux or an arrangement of ranunculus per say, but instead of giving something that will be gone in an instant, why not try and give something a little more long-lasting and meaningful?
To take the work out of shopping for great housewarming gifts, we rounded up our favorites. These gifts will please just about anyone, from the diehard foodie to the homebody or the wellness aficionado. Better yet, some of these are so wallet-friendly that they can be purchased in bulk ahead of time, so you never fall short on last-minute hostess gifts. Ready to wow the guests at your next housewarming party? Look no further than these great gifts.
