24 Hostess Gifts That Aren't A Bottle Of Wine

Brittany Nims

Housewarming parties are pretty high on the list of obligatory adult social events sprinkled in your calendar (right behind engagement parties, weddings and baby showers).

But planning thoughtful gifts for all of the above can be time consuming and expensive ― which means you might frequently turn to your old go-to gift for housewarming parties: a reliable bottle of red or white (sometimes paired with a cute reusable wine bag). 

Though there’s nothing wrong with gifting your hostess a nice Merlot, it’s never a bad idea to think outside the bottle for clever gift ideas. That’s why we’ve rounded up two dozen of our favorite, unique and beautiful housewarming gifts every new homeowner will love.
