12 Housewarming Gifts You'll Want For Yourself

Is it just us, or is everyone moving apartments? Fall seems to be the season of taping boxes and U-Hauls; Summer's over which means it's time to get into cozy clothes and turn up those radiators, and it seems us New Yorkers want a change of address so we can make like bears and hibernate right this winter. But, with new homes come housewarming parties, and with housewarming parties comes gifts. And, unless you're a regular Nate Berkus, finding a gift that's special and one-of-a-kind (sorry, Two-Buck Chuck don't cut it) takes time and money we just don't have. Luckily, we're getting you on your friends' good-list this year—we meticulously scoured the city to find a selection of prezzies that have the perfect mix of quirkiness and practicality to save them from the dustbin of yard-sale history. Our handy little hit-list, with gifts all under $100—pill-happy coasters, shoegasmic shakers, Ikat pillows—has enough options to satisfy even Felix Unger. We won't tell anyone if one or two of our casa cravings end up in your house too.
