Here’s a radical idea. Instead of buying a bottle of wine as a housewarming gift, or some dumb tchotchke you grabbed in desperation... What your newly-nesting friends would appreciate so much more (especially in those first few weeks, when they’re surrounded by boxes) are elevated versions of the basic cleaning tools and supplies that were likely left behind when they moved. Think unfussy, functional gifts that feel good to use and aren’t hideous to look at. These are the housewarming gift ideas that will make them happy—and get you invited back, again and again.
