But what constitutes a good housewarming gift for a guy depends on things like A) how well you know the person you’re gifting, and B) how much you’re looking to spend. Seeing as the unemployment rate is still hovering near seven percent, we’re guessing you want to save a few pennies. So whether you’re going to a housewarming party of an acquaintance, co-worker, or your girlfriend’s best friend’s friend’s best friend’s bestie guy pal, these housewarming gifts for dudes will do the job.

FOR AN ACQUAINTANCE

Even people who don’t cook will appreciate the gesture and the classy presentation of the bottles. But seriously — what weirdo wouldn’t enjoy a nice set of oil and vinegar?

Unless that person is a teetotaler. In that case, you’re pretty much screwed. Don’t ask for the tag back directly; that’s classless. But dropping a hint that if the person were to want to give it away it a deserving person, it would go nicely in your liquor cabinet.
