In my experience grass huts are fine, and the mice love to chew them up, but you might want to bake it or freeze it at a very low temp just to be safe and eliminate the risk of parasites. You can also just use a little cardboard box instead of store bought.

I give my guy an egg carton fort and popsicle stick houses. So then he goes and just builds a nest in the corner away from any of the stuff I gave him...

I use a little plastic barn I got from the pet store I got my girls from.

My boy uses a blue, plastic house that came with his cage. My girls usually just use a cardboard box, like a tissue box or something, but lately they've been cuddling in hammocks instead of building nests. So sweet.

My mice had a grass nest once and they really loved it. Until they eventually ruined it like they do all their things Laughing Mine have had all sorts of things for nests in their times. Cardboard boxes, grass nests, a seagrass hut, a plastic house, an igloo type thing.

Currently they're sleeping in this cyber house thing by superpet and it's a MASSIVE hit - they love it.

I use a few different hides too. Smaller boxes and egg cartons are always a hit.  I had a hay nest for a while that they loved but as others said they will shred it up and/or eventually it just gets gross.  But if you find them cheap, it's worth it.  Also ceramic tea light holders or scrubby holders make cute hides. I keep an eye out for these at thrift stores.  These store bought hides are well liked by my mice too:

It does!
I use mostly the 2 story petco hamster house - though I'm not currently as it started smelling horridly and I had to remove it - and a critterbath filled with shredded toilet paper. I make popsicle stick MES's that they can hie in if they so wish, but they prefer the critterbath.
I'm trying to get my hands on more dens and hides though. I hear empty ceramic soap holders work as cute hides - and they come in fun shapes, like frogs and hedgehogs!

My girls actually like to sleep in an open-topped cardboard box lined with polar fleece. It's a favorite bed! Otherwise I just give them cardboard or popsicle stick houses. I never buy the ones in the store; the homemade options are just so much cheaper.

The reptile logs work really great too. My girls enjoy the medium size readily available in stores.
This type is what I'm referring to: http://www.petmountain.com/product/reptile-caves-huts/11442-603095/flukers-flukers-critter-cavern-half-log.html
