    Hi everyone, how are you?

    My friends are moving into a house together. They're all male so I'm fairly certain it'll become a bachelor pad (despite their protestations). What's a good housewarming gift I can give them?

    In b4 condoms and porn obviously. Something that'll make the place brighter I guess?

    How about, electric heat? But they may have problems getting girls to date them. ;)

    A nice bottle of Wine is a nice gesture, maybe some do dads to hang on the fridge/wall. Or maybe a gift card to a home goods store!?

    An 80 inch TV, a surround sound system, a couch or two, and a stripper.

    I think those are all pretty good gifts.

    Always get them a gift card to Lowes or Home Depot. Trust me in a house, they'll need it.

    Erz got it right. My cousin moved into his own place last year, and spent more time at Home Depot in a month, than he had in the past year. Can't go wrong with a card for there.

    A painting of Kramer.

    If they refuse to put it up stop being friends with them.

    Are they renting or buying, sounds like renting if it's a bunch of guys, so they won't need to hit up a home improvement store. Wine is usually a good thing, but that's more for a couple. Give 'em a case of beer and maybe a bottle of nice booze.

    They're renting but I'm sure they wouldn't mind furniture etc so it's a pretty good idea! Thanks guys!

    Speaking of the 80 inch tv, they were talking about tvs and one of my friends casually mentioned he has a 42 inch. I was the only one who giggled.

    Try and find out what home goods they're lacking or need replaced. Moving is expensive and if your moving for the first time, there's always going to be something they need.

    Booze and gift cards are the easiest though.

    Deadbolt locks for each of their bedrooms...seriously!

    Every group of friends I know who moved in together in larger numbers than 2 ended up hating at least one of the others, and getting stuff stolen from their rooms when others had parties when they weren't all home.

    I hate to be negative like that, but I've seen even the best of friendships ruined by living together.

    On a lighter note, you can't go wrong with beer or cards, or a poker/gaming table.

    Is it just a bromance or a romance?
