DIY Housewarming Basket

What do you do when your husband’s college buddy and his family move down the block from you? Make them a housewarming basket!

Let’s be honest, we all love a good gift basket. Moving can be stressful, especially with a toddler and one on the way. I wanted to give our friends a little basket full of goodies that would help ease their stress so they could enjoy their new home!

    Great housewarming gift idea! Maybe even toss in a couple of wine glasses to go with the wine, especially if it’s a housewarming gift for a couple.
