Struggling with a gift to take to someone's housewarming? 

It can be quite a shlep when figuring out what gift to get someone, especially when it's last minute.

Stacey and J Sbu have some stellar advice for you: "If you figure out what kind of housewarming gift you like to give, then it's just a matter of rinsing and repeating. Let's help you find that gift..."

Here are some of our best gift suggestions for you:

VOTE: Are these the best flowers in South Africa?

1. A plant of some variation 

2. A good bottle of wine (you can always have this on standby)

3.A personalised something (mug, bottle, glass etc.)

4. Something cute for the kitchen (gold spoons, some side plates etc.)

5. Flowers (a perfect last minute idea, too)


Just to make sure that you don't give someone a bad gift, it might be good to check out some terrible housewarming gift ideas:

  1. Anything you can see is re-gifted
  2. An appliance they didn't ask for 
  3. Clothes that don't fit 
  4. Diet products
  5. Tacky novelties
  6. Any alcohol they don't drink

Confession: "When she asked how much the ring cost, it was chaos"

In the world of gifting, it can get very tricky. Sometimes it's better to be safe than sorry. Stacey has a rule where she asks people for what they want/need or gets them to draw up a list. 

P.S it works every single time!
