These Adorable Olive Beaded Coasters: $20

Everyone knows that the best of friendships are formed on the basis of there being an olive-loving friend and an olive-hating friend. If the person you're celebrating happens to be on the love side of this debate, they're sure to adore these unique beaded coasters from Urban Outfitters (not only for how cute they are, but also for how they keep their furniture protected from stains).

A Botanical Wallflower Fragrance Plug: $14.95

When you're searching for a housewarming gift on a budget, you simply can't go wrong shopping at Bath & Body Works. While their beloved wallflower plugs may be small, these delightful scent diffusers certainly pack a punch (especially when paired with a wallflower refill in a scent that screams home). While there are plenty of options to choose from, we love the gold detailing and sleek botanical leaves of this one for a housewarming gift that goes above and beyond without doing the same to your budget.
