      Housewarming Gift

      My son, age 25, is moving out on his own for the first time. Over the last few years for Christmas, I'd pick a room and get him gifts focused on that room. He has all he needs for a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, dining. He wants to see his new place before he gets any furniture, to gauge for size and layout. He's doing that on Thursday and we will go to the thrift shops so he can find at least a chair or two. Then we move him on Friday. He has bedroom furniture and an office desk and chair for his computer.

      What are some ideas for a housewarming gift?

      I'm horrible at housewarming gifts but my sister-in-law always got us nice outside door mats! Everyone can use those, right? My husband is a Cubs fan so she got him one that we keep inside by the back door to wipe our feet.

      A multi-tool from www.leatherman.com never know when it will come in handy at the new place. A manly throw... I like the Blackhawks so I got huge throw that I like to fall asleep under. How about an Aerogarden, love mine. A nice wall clock.

      ... sounds like you've already done a LOT to help him! Great....


      Maybe a gift card.... that empowers him to furnish is own home according to HIS desires and tastes? Or maybe a six pack of good beer for the refrigerator (every guy appreciates that, lol).
      We are justified by works - just not our own.
