A plant is always a nice gesture, and a succulent is an even better bet. They don't require much light, much watering, much of anything really.
Okay, so this is barely a DIY, but its just something nice and personal to bring to friend. If anyone asks, you can say you did it yourself, and not be lying. (Especially if you add a DIY Bakers Twine bow. Then it's legit.)
Succulent - $2.50 at Home Depot
Cup - $.25 at thrift store
I actually ended up making one for myself to keep in the kitchen (on a shelf that I didn't realize needed to be dusted until after I snapped these photos. In my defense, I can't see that high, so let's just blame this whole one on Andy).
Not so into bringing wine or plants, but still don't want to show up empty handed? Bring a powerstrip. I swear to god moving boxes are a portal into another dimension, but only for extension cords and powerstrips.
