A little over a year ago now Ray & I started our journey to homeownership. We originally were just planning to move in together & rent a cute little apartment in the city but as we started looking around we fell in love with the idea of purchasing a slice of paradise that was all ours. In April 2019 Ray & I's dream came true.
This little house of ours gifted me the feeling of "home" for the very first time since leaving for college. In the past six years I have never lived in a single apartment for more than a year so to find this house, renovate it to our liking (still in progress) & create so many amazing memories here over the last year and half has been the B E S T experience & it all started with our housewarming party. It was the perfect way to break in our new home with friends, cocktails, & of course a Bucks victory!
So many of our friends & family graciously gave us gifts & well wishes are we took on this new adventure so I wanted to show you a few of my favorites along with a few extra's I have stumbled upon as I have been searching for housewarming gifts for our friends as well.
For The Wine Lovers:
You can't go wrong bringing a bottle of wine! You can even wrap it in a cute little bottle bag to dress it up & pair it with a HOME cutting board for our cheese nights, electric wine opener &/or wine glasses to add a little something extra!
For The Foodie
When Ray & I went from seperate apartments to living together we wanted to start fresh with a lot of our dining & kitchen items so that it would feel like OURS rather than odds & ends that we had collected over the years. We also started cooking at home A L O T which was so fun! Personalized tea towel, gift cards to local restaurants near their new home & kitchen gadgets like a pasta maker, fondue machine, or even a new cookbook.
For the Cozy Couple:
One of my absolute favorite housewarming gifts that we received were items to make our house feel more homey & cozy. This included beautiful customized throw pillows, candles & comfy blankets perfect for movie nights.
