Moving into a new place is usually seen as a new beginning. If you have a friend, relative or even colleague that has moved home recently, you are probably looking for what you could get them as a housewarming gift. If you find yourself stuck and not sure what to get them, we’ve got you covered as that’s what this post is all about.
One great gift idea for someone who has moved into a new place is to take something normal and not particularly special and personalise it. This could be something like a mug, cutting board or even a wine cask, watch or doormat. You can personalise these kinds of items yourself or order a service online. The message or inscription could be their favourite quote, a recipe for tacos or just their name. The possibilities really are endless and only limited by your own imagination.
Artwork in a Nice Frame
It seems as if artwork in a nice frame will never go out of fashion. Pictures and paintings are usually the way we add our own personal touches to new homes. Although you could buy a nice print of a painting you know they like, if you’re creative and something of an artist yourself, you could paint them a picture. Trust us, it will mean a lot more if they know you sweated over its inception rather than just popped your digits into the credit card details section of an online form.
Gourmet Gift Baskets
When you just move to a new house, your cupboards are often very bare and barren land. This is why one particularly good option of gift for someone just moving into a new home is one of the many gourmet gift baskets that are available these days. You have various options to choose from, so you are bound to find something that matches even suits an individual with even the most discerning of tastes.
Another incredibly thoughtful gift for someone who has recently just moved into a new place, is plants. As we’ve noted previously, it is often a goal earlier on when you’ve moved into a new house to try and put your own stamp on it. If you know they like a flower or plant, you could buy one for them which will help their new house feel more like a home.
Gift cards are often seen as a cop-out, but they are often one of the best options if you’re not entirely sure what an individual need for their new place. Buying them a nice gift card at their favourite department store or DIY store can give them the option to buy some nice furnishings, accessories or even decorating items like paints and similar items to help them start work on their house.
It’s incredibly stressful moving into a new house. In fact, it is one of the most stressful things you can do in your adult life, and is up there with divorce and grieving the death of a spouse. So, just remember whatever you decide to get as a gift for that someone in your life who has recently moved, will probably mean a lot more to them than you’ll ever know.
