A FABULOUS Housewarming Idea…

I thought this was worth a repost as I have so many friends moving in June and July!  This is also a great engagement gift idea…there are a lot of those happening around me too.  Congratulations and best wishes to you all!


I have a friend in Florida who is the best gift giver.  Like ever.  Her husband came to visit us last summer and Jen sent with him the sweetest care package for me with a picture of the four of us from a recent vacation, a fabulous candle, Tkees!!!!, a makeup bag and sunscreen…all in a super swanky beach bag.  The girl is amazing. Point is, she always knows what to give anyone on any occasion.

Another girlfriend in Richmond just moved into a new place and I wanted to get her something unique so of course I ask Jen for a suggestion and ta-da!  She gives me the perfect answer: bread, wine, and salt.  Why is this the perfect answer?  Check this adorable blog out for the long version but here’s the short story:

bread wine salt

Love it right?

So simple but so fun to shop for.  And what a great opportunity to turn your friends onto some clean versions of these basic items.  I ended up with homemade crostini (homemade my Ellwood Thompson’s, not me), Spanish cava (because, duh), and pink Himalayan sea salt.

I also threw in some Justin’s Almond Butter packets and a SUJA green juice, because why not??

Love this easy and sweet idea!
