I know there are some of you that just can’t bear to purchase from a gift registry and you know what, that’s okay! Housewarming gifts are one of those times I think it is perfectly appropriate to not buy off the registry (if there is one) and while gift cards are wonderful, opening a nicely wrapped box to uncover a surprise gift can be just as useful and fun.
To that point, I recently stumbled across a new website that I really like called Harabu House. It reminds me of a snazzy and modern version of World Market, so you know I’m drooling over it. And wouldn’t you know it, they have some pretty cool items that would make fantastic housewarming gifts.
I love The Useful Towel! It provides all the kitchen measurements and conversions you could possibly need printed right on a nifty cotton flour sack towel and is only $26.
Then there are these Teak Measuring Spoons that will bring warmth to a new kitchen that’s waiting for someone to bake in. $20, not too bad for a pretty gift.
And for $12, this Small Leaf Canvas Bucket is perfect for holding small kitchen knick-knacks (or would make great “gift wrapping” for the items above). There is a larger one (pictured above) as well that would be ideal for storing small baguettes.
Harabu House – I heart you.
