Gourmet gift baskets are nice, but once you eat the contents the gift is finished. Whenever I attend a housewarming party, I try to give the new residents something they can actually use. Sometimes it’s a piece of cast iron cookware and other times it’s a monogrammed towel set.
A close friend of mine recently became a first time homeowner. He loves German culture and food, so I decided to buy him a housewarming gift that reflected his passion for all things German. In an antique shop I found an exquisite cuckoo clock carved in the Black Forest tradition. I’m sure my friend is going to appreciate the clocks’ heritage and craftsmanship.
