House-warming Gift Set Ideas

Sunday, September 30, 2012

If you're invited to a house warming party and don't know what to bring as a gift for the hostess, then these gift sets below might be your options or at least they could inspire you ;)

I only choose gift sets here because I personally love gift sets since they usually comes in unique packaging, and you will also receive several smaller items instead of one >> the more items you receives the happier you would be, I think that's the essence of receiving gifts, LOL ;p

So without further adieu..... here are a few of my options for a house warming gift sets ;)

 Penhaligon's Malabah Classic Candle & Matches Set
Candles are important items that every household should have. You'll need it to set the mood and atmosphere, or if you're not the "aromatic-candle" type at least you'll need it incase of a blackout ;).

Inspired by an imaginary journey to the East, Malabah is an exotic blend of citrus, coriander, Earl Grey tea, rose and aromatic spices. Penhaligon’s luxurious candles are packed with essential oils in a naturally derived soy wax base and are hand-blended for a superior burn time. This set also includes a limited edition matches.

Tranquil Tuesday "White Peony" Celadon Tea Set
A high-quality tea is considered as a sophisticate gift, especially if the hostess loves tea. And the elegant wooden packaging of this tea set makes it an appropriate gift for house warming parties.

This gift set of two celadon cups and a celadon tea canister is complemented by a sampler pack of five teas and a tin of delicate White Peony tea which is a light and delicate tea that is Tranquil Tuesdays bestseller. This gift set comes in a keepsake wood gift box. The five sampler pack consists of: Organic Ancient Tree Raw Pu'er Tea, Organic Jade Sword Green Tea, White Peony White Tea, Qimen (Keemun) Black Tea and Iron Goddess of Mercy Oolong Tea.

Chambre de Sucre I Heart Coffee Sugar Set
 Sugars are essentials in every house's kitchen so giving sugars as gift is rather a unique idea that the hostess will love. Who knew that sugars can be interesting if packaged well like this one ;)

This set includes brown and white sugars in heart, pyramid and cube shapes, and it's made in Japan. Chambre de Sucre has been making artisanal sugars by hand in Japan for over 270 years and has supplied the Japanese Imperial Family since the time of the shoguns era. 


The Laundress Spring Cleaning Kit
This is a gift that every hostess would love because these are essential items that she would surely needs for her new home. I love giving gifts that I know would be useful for the receiver, i love giving and receiving gifts that I can actually use. So this spring cleaning kit is a gift set that I would love to give or even receive ;p

The Laundress Spring Cleaning Kit includes: Scented Vinegar, Surface Cleaner, All-Purpose Cleaning Concentrate, Lint-Free Cleaning Cloths and a Kitchen Soap Bar, all packed in a pretty White Enamel Pail.
