My sister-in-law Laura recently moved into her very own apartment. Of course, I can't wait to help her decorate, but in the meantime, I thought I would send over a little pack of goodies to make the place feel a little more homey.
I threw in some of my favorite items that can quickly add personality and spunk to a space:
- Inspirational art for this ambitious girl
- Polka dot straws (for decoration or entertaining)
- A signature scent
- The "L" to make her mark
- Some Kentucky pride
My best gift basket advice: tinsel goes a long way in making things look festive. Buy tinsel by the bag at the dollar store and go to town! I always have some stashed away in my wrapping closet.
I must admit the Kentucky "y'all" towel I picked up from the City Flea was my favorite find for this basket.
We're also big supporters of hand soap from Bath & Body Works. My husband and I get caught up in all of the scents. For this occasion, I opted for a universal scent, instead of a seasonal one. I figured Laura could use it right away or stash it for later.
I love pulling together little surprises like this, because, "Who doesn't love unexpected goodies?"
What are your favorite treats to include in a housewarming gift?
