Rustic Housewarming Gift Basket

This past weekend, Brandon, Chance, and I went to visit one of my besties and her husband and pup in their new house. Instead of bringing the traditional bottle of wine gift, I wanted to create a rustic and cozy housewarming gift basket for them that was cute and practical! I thought it turned out really adorable! This idea could also be used as a hostess gift in addition to a housewarming gift!

I think the key to any cohesive looking gift basket is to have a theme. The theme for my housewarming gift basket was cozy and rustic. This adorable, buffalo check, dish towel from Crate and Barrel was one of the first items I found and set the mood for the rest of the gift basket. I think it’s pretty much the cutest kitchen towel I’ve ever seen too, and I even bought a second one for myself 🙂

Another great item to include in a housewarming gift basket is a plant (greenery) or flowers. Originally, I wanted to include a basil plant, but I couldn’t find any this time of year, so I used this little, white flower plant from Trader Joe’s instead which complimented the white and black dish towel perfectly. Trader Joe’s has a really nice selection of small plants and flowers for gift baskets!

I also included my favorite Mrs. Meyer’s Dish soap and the loveliest, Fresh Balsam scented candle from Bath and Body Works. Finally, I added a DIY wood sign that I made using a modified version of this tutorial with my Home Sweet Home printable, available in the shop. But, you could also just add a printable in a wood picture frame to keep things more simple!

To put the housewarming gift basket together and make it look more full, I scrunched up brown kraft paper and made sure it took up at least half of the basket space.

Then, I covered the kraft paper with 2 bags of shredded kraft paper I found at the Dollar Store. This provided a snug base for all of my rustic housewarming gift basket items to sit on top of and not move around.
