House warming gifty idea...

A friend recently called me to ask me what was appros as a house warming gift for a mutual friend. Quite a few of our friends have recently moved into new places or bought new houses. Here is a housewarming gift that's always a hit...

This takes inspiration from the movie, It's a Wonderful life. I usually get a pretty reusable bag (available on etsy) that suits the person/couple receiving the gift. Then fill it with a fresh loaf of bread, some sea/kosher large grain salt and a bottle of wine. I attach a little note referencing this from the movie--

• Bread - that this house may never know hunger
Salt - that life may always have flavor
Wine - that joy and prosperity may reign forever

Of course this can be customized to the recipients. It also makes a nice hostess gift around the holidays!
