Modern Housewarming Gift Ideas

I've been using Polyvore for a while to create the sets for my Tuesday fashion and style posts, but haven't really tried using it to explore home decorating ideas.  When I saw a contest featuring housewarming gifts, I couldn't resist.  Here are twelve perfect, affordable gifts for newlyweds moving into a new home, whether it be a cozy cottage or a modern loft.  Which of these pieces would you most like to receive?
