As my sister embarked on her journey as a homeowner, I anticipated her immediate needs and carefully curated a housewarming gift basket that encompassed essential cleaning supplies.
Outside the kitchen:
And every new homeowner needs to have:
And because you need to eat while unpacking and might not get to the kitchen stuff right away, always remember to gift these simple items.
I was thinking of a large trash can or just a big basket to hold all of these housewarming gift items, but then I realized that my sister could use a large bin to hold toys on the main floor. Luckily I knew she trusts my taste in home décor.
To raise the items up high in the basket (you know, for awesome presentation purposes), I just put an empty diaper box in the bottom of the basket. Funny though… while “opening” this gift basket my sister actually thought we bought her kids diapers as well. Uh no, that stuff is expensive!
All in all this huge gift basket cost me $100, but I split the cost with one of my brothers so it was pretty affordable. I scored the tool kit and screws on clearance from Walgreens and the basket was a steal from HomeGoods. My advice? Shop around for some deals if you have the time! Or just lighten the load.
