Moving houses can be a daunting experience. To leave familiar space, relocate to the unknown, and start from scratch can be disconcerting, to say the least. But a new house also brings along the chance to make new memories, and a housewarming party is the first opportunity to do the same with friends and family. As is customary, one is expected to bring gifts to help the family settle in, so here are ten of the best housewarming gifts that will help transform your loved ones’ new house into a home.
1. Name Plate
The thing about an impressive name plate is that it doesn’t just instantly add a touch of familiarity, it marks down the house as yours. Reading your family’s name just before you enter home brings a feeling of both happiness, and relief.
2. Coaster Set
Coasters look pretty alright, but they also help protect the valuable furniture that the family may own. No more unsightly coffee mug stains, please!
Lamps are so much better than tube lights for the simple reason that they add more warmth to your room. Lamps are also portable, meaning the family can easily set it up at any nook with a plug point.
A classic wall accessory, no home is complete without a wall clock or two. Apart from telling the time, clocks double up as an integral part of your home decor and add much needed character to your walls.
What we love about a keyholder is that it gives off the impression that you’re an organised soul. And well, once you get used to it over a period of time, it actually does make you more organised, which means you won’t lose sleep over misplacing your house or car keys again.
A vase is simply the easiest form of home decor. Place it by the window sill or above the vacant surface of your furniture, throw in a couple of fresh flowers and voila! Just like that, there’s more life in your room.
7. Cushion Covers
Stylish cushion covers help add a splash of colour to the otherwise drab furniture that the family might own. The contrast and clash of colours means the room will cease to be dull, making it a great budget gift.
When we think of showpieces, we think of sophistication, elegance, and luxury. However, minimalism is the key here, and picking the right showpiece can be the difference between a visually stunning room or an ostentatious one.
9. Photo Frame
Safest cliche possible, isn’t it? Truth be told though, photo frames actually come in handy as they help preserve the many cherished photographs that the family may own.
10. Wall Decal
Naked walls seldom look pretty, and adorning every wall with frames or paintings might be a bit too much. Wall decal is a wonderful form of art that helps add both sophistication and character to your walls, instantly bringing them to life.
