The house buying frenzy of spring and early summer slowed down. Still, you probably know someone who recently moved into a new place.

Whether purchased or not, that likely still means:  Lots of housewarming gifts, party or no party.

Know, or figure out, your gift recipient’s taste, then a decor gift makes a great addition to a their new home.  And, it’s memorable.

Here’s a few Frugalista gift ideas.  



Who says functional can’t be pretty?

Whether your gift recipient uses the Core Home Entertaining Bowls for condiments at the table, snacks during the movie or on the buffet table, these will enhance the scene.  Bonus: the sustainable bamboo holder and serving spoons make this gift Eco-friendly.

The resin stone Kelkay Linton Fountain gives your gift recipient an option to use this pretty soother inside or outside. Who couldn’t use a calm and relaxing session after a busy day? No permanent water supply required. Low voltage pumps included.
