Housewarming Gift Guide
Moving into a new place can feel both magical and daunting. We've all been there! The first couple of days we find our footing, build our new routines and wonder how we have accumulated so many things throughout the years. But, one thing is for sure... Once everything is unpacked and in its place, it's time for a housewarming soiree! Our retail manager Cate shows us what to bring as a houseguest. A little something for every room of the house. Kitchen, bath, living room, bedroom, and everywhere else.

Normally after a big move, new kitchen textiles are the last thing on our minds. Treat your friend to some new Oven Mitts and Potholders to add a fresh pop of color to their new kitchen. We love gifting kitchen and dining pieces because it’s an easy way to encourage them to host more dinner parties and invite you. Add on our favorite Olive Oil from Pineapple Collaborative that comes in an equally fun and colorful tin to complement their new Oven Mitts and Potholders.
Our Everyday Bath Collection has been flying off the shelves since its launch in Spring, for good reason. For starters, all three towel sizes are made with bouclé, GOTS-certified organic cotton, and grown, spun, and handwoven in Peru. The Everyday Bath Collection offers the perfect balance between a super thick terry cloth and lightweight Turkish towel. With three neutral colors to choose from, you’re sure to find one to fit right in at your friend’s home. To complete the perfect bath gift, we’re adding on our all-time favorite–Everyday Oil, to keep the skin nourished and hydrated long after a bath.
A Living Room Treat
For your most special friend, treat them to our most special throw. These throws are made of a luxurious blend of merino wool, viscose, and linen. We recommend our Abstract Throw in Hunter Green or Indigo for your friend who loves a bold pop of color and the Abstract Throw in Oat or the Split Grid Throw in Turmeric for a more neutral home.
A Dream-Worthy Bedroom
It’s said that the average person will spend a third of their life in bed, so we might as well make it as cozy as possible. Treat your friend to a new set of pillowcases or a duvet cover to freshen up their new space. With seven different colorways to choose from, there’s something for every home. To really amp up their nighttime routine, treat them to our favorite incense from MAAPS. Hand dipped with essential oils, these incense are perfect for relaxing at the end of a long day.
For Keeping the House Organized
Sometimes the best gifts are the most practical ones. Our Oaxaca Baskets are the perfect vessel for keeping odds and ends out of sight–a cuter version of a junk drawer if you will. There are a plethora of colors to choose from, and natural palm styles for a more minimal look. They also make a great decorative planter (just remind your friend to use a pot and saucer so they don’t have to worry about drainage.)
