All You Need Are Two Items for this Simple and Classy Housewarming Gift

Did you know today is National Wine Day? Listen, I don’t need another excuse to grab a glass of wine after work, but it does help! 

I put down my glass of wine (for now) and jumped on to share this quick and easy housewarming gift idea!

SIMPLE housewarming gift


A friend of mine recently moved into her first home and instead of making one of my amazing housewarming baskets, I wanted to do something a bit different. She has an amazing home decor style, and I didn’t want my gift basket items to interfere with her design.

Instead, I went the simple and useful route. See below for the details & final product!


  • One bottle of wine (I tend to look for a bottle with a witty name, one that goes with the occasion.) 
  • One gift card (HomeGoods, Home Depot, Lowes, CVS, or a local food store would be perfect!) 


  1. Punch a hole in the top corner of the gift card envelope. (If the card doesn’t come with an envelope, I would find a small gift card holder or envelope to put it in, this way it is nice and secure.)
  2. Choose a pretty ribbon. (I found my ribbon at Michaels, but the Dollar Tree has a great selection as well.)
  3. Loop it through the gift card and tie it to the bottle of wine. (Excuse my bow, I’m still learning.) 


…and voila! She was extremely appreciative and the thought went a long way.


What are some other two item gift ideas to give a new homeowner?
