I need gift ideas for a housewarming party

Friends of my boyfriend and I recently left the stables and moves to their own property. Their two geldings were paddock mates with our gelding and we are pretty good friends.
I'm having a tough time coming up with a gift idea. I'm famous for my cupcakes so I'm taking those and my boyfriend is helping build the bonfire but I'd like to take an actual gift.
They are horsey people, he LOVES the packers. We'd like to get something that they will use not a potted plant vase or pictures frame like the internet suggested -_-
Any ideas?

Hammer with an assortment of nails for fixing things?

That's a good idea I never thought of that.

Well, I am going to suggest what I always bring to a housewarming, a bottle of wine. I think I have gifted that for every housewarming visit in my life.

Usually such housewarming gifts are really for the person who makes the home, a home, and that's usually the woman. So, how about a packed meal of somekind. Like a fancy gourmet chili, in a box.

OR, Harry and David have awesome fruit basketst that come in the mail. It's kind of pricey, but the fruit is the very best and it comes in the winter . Really cool to get a box of beautiful pears or such.

I would go practical. Having their own place for their horses, I'd lean towards something for their barn.

Is your boyfriend handy with tools? Mounting block or a wall box for grooming stuff with a Packers paint job ;)

I'm with Waresbear. I always bring wine. If they don't like that sort of stuff, then maybe a cookbook or a nice frame with a picture of them in it.
