San Francisco Housewarming Gifts

San Francisco Housewarming Gifts

We've blogged about housewarming gifts before (like here and here), but this time we wanted to see if you had any suggestions for people moving to the Bay Area for the first time. Sure, there are always flowers, but what about turning your friends on to some of the city's hidden gems?

Our go-to gift for any occasion is a Sacrapantina cake from Stella's in North Beach. Perhaps it's mean to get our friends hooked on their delicious pastries as soon as they move here... we've never heard any complaints, though. The Artist Xchange features local artists and has a great selection of affordable artwork with our fair city as the subject. We'd also suggest a basket of goodies from the Ferry Building or a subscription to 7x7.

What would you give to a new San Francisco resident?
