Celebrate The Moment With A Special Housewarming GiftWritten by desmond ong
Ah, moment finally comes. Your best friend, relative or even co-worker finally moves into their own home. It is a time for celebration. A time for happiness. A time for… housewarming gifts!
Shopping for just right housewarming gift can be a challenging task. Many people plan to redecorate completely when moving into a new home, and so what was once their “style” may not be for long! In addition, there will be many people who will be giving new homeowner a housewarming gift, and you won’t want to duplicate their gifts!
But don’t worry, there are plenty of unique, original ideas that you can use for housewarming gifts. Let’s look at a few of them below.
What’s first thing that a person sees when entering person’s new house? They will stand outside door—which offers a plethora of housewarming gift ideas. First of all, mat that they stand on can either be an ordinary store-bought one, or someone (you!) could give them a custom made mat complete with their family name. In addition, doorknocker on front door can be customized with a family name, or favorite saying. Want more ideas? How about a planter specialized just for your housewarming gift recipient? Do they have a standard mailbox? Why not buy them a personalize one that will match their personality? Finally, you can find some beautiful and unique house numbers that they can attach to their home to give it a custom look.
Once inside door, a guest to new home will be faced with a lot of décor. Wouldn’t it be unique and charming if, in entrance hallway, was a sketch of house itself? You can hire a local artist to sketch house in black and white, and then frame it with a wood that matches rest of their interior and décor. A customized throw is another great housewarming gift idea. You can personalize it with their name, a bible verse, or a family “motto”. Be sure to find out color décor before ordering throw so it will blend nicely into atmosphere.
