One of my favorite trips from our New England expedition last summer was to The Breakers in Newport, Rhode Island. This Vanderbilt mansion is the grandest and arguably the most famous of all Newport’s summer “cottages”– and for good reason, too. It’s stunning. Plus, there are pineapples everywhere. I’ve always loved pineapples, but I’ll admit it’s because I’m from Florida, and I’ve always considered them to be the most fun (and delicious) tropical drink garnish. Turns out, they’re so much more. Pineapples are an international symbol of hospitality (Southern Living explains why here). They’re also a token of warmth and welcome that’s been an integral part of Southern culture for centuries. So… if you’re brainstorming cute housewarming gift ideas– or if you’re trying to find “just because” gift ideas for pineapple lovers, you’ve come to the right place.
Funnily enough, I got this post idea when Kyle and I moved to Missouri. We received an overwhelmingly thoughtful amount of cute housewarming gifts from our friends and families, and 100% of the aforementioned gifts were pineapple-themed. Luckily, nothing warms up a big and/or stale new place more than a pineapple trinket from someone you love. So, whether or not you want to congratulate a friend on a new home or you want to give your pineapple-loving BFF a trendy gift in honor of National Pineapple Day (which was yesterday), any one of these fun gifts is guaranteed to put a smile on someone’s face.
