These long-lasting, cruelty-free and domestically made candles are the perfect housewarming gift. Aromas and fragrances are a big part of what makes a house a home.

A good coffee table book 

A good book that tells stories not only dresses a coffee table but also brings family together. Whether that be Pete Souza’s or Chris Burkard’s best-selling books or a collectible from Barnes & Noble, chances are they’ll keep it for generations. 

A gift basket 

Let’s be frank, when you’re drowning in boxes and overwhelmed by the thought of unpacking all your belongings, making a home cooked meal is low on the priority list. Sending a gift basket or a take-away picnic from a local restaurant could be the simple gift they truly wanted. From gourmet to healthy, Hazelton’s has a wide range of gift baskets guaranteed to please anybody.
