20 Of the Worst Housewarming Gifts You Could Ever Give Someone

With more than 5 million homes bought and sold every year (not all by me!) there are plenty of housewarming gifts given to new homeowners, as well. But there’s no accounting for taste as they say, and one person’s treasured gift might be another’s White Elephant.

We decided to poke around and collect the best WORST housewarming gifts we could find. Here are our top 20:

1. Pillows with sayings that don’t really match their decor, but they’ll have to put them on the couch every time you come over.
