A single male friend just bought a house. I'm putting together a housewarming gift for him. I've got his favorite cookies, his favorite movie that he doesn't yet have on DVD and his favorite bottle of liquor. Because of psychological issues, I don't want to just put it in a box with a bow, I want to put it in a container that he hopefully will find useful later on.
I was thinking an ice bucket but honestly, who uses those? Then I was thinking a theater-style popcorn bowl but apparently I can only find it online.
Should I buy the bowl or should I just put the gift in paper bag with a big bow on it?
