Hostess with the Mostess

I've been thinking of the perfect housewarming gift lately.  I'm not sure why - I don't know anyone moving into a new home - so it must be my ongoing obsession with beautiful housewares:

These sweet smelling lavender wands

These personalized dinner menus from Perideau Designs (at Etsy)

This succulent trough arrangement from Olive and Cocoa

These Lilly Pulitzer water bottles from Lifeguard Press

A Meal-in-a-basket, such as this pasta basket suggested at Real Simple

This rustic cheeseboard from Firewood Furniture (at Etsy)
PS: Don't forget the cheese!

These great cookbook flag set from Spoon Sisters

These stack and grow herb kits are perfect for an apartment balcony

This Home Maintenance Organizer by Knock Knock will help keep all the not-so-fun stuff in check

These Table Topics Conversation Cards would be a great icebreaker at the Housewarming Party.

This Fig Leaf soap by Sweet Petula is a great gender neutral scent - and pretty packaging!

What's better than soap?  Flowers and soap. Satin and Birch's 2-for-1 French Flower Market Soap set would make a beautiful addition to a guest bathroom. 

Last but not least, who doesn't love a substantial, scented candle?  Made with recycled glass and soy wax, this exotically-scented (Aloha and Volcano), Capri Blue Jar Candle from Anthropologie is a great selection for both the stylish and the eco-friendly.
