How to find the perfect house warming gift
Are you looking for the perfect house warming gift? A present for a loved one, a special something for a friend or even something for a coupe moving into their first home? If so, then we understand just how difficult it can be to find the perfect gift! That’s why we have written this handy blog post to provide you with some simple ideas for the ideal house warming present that doesn’t have to cost the earth.
For the first time buyer
Buying a house warming gift for a first time buyer can be both the easiest and most difficult present to buy. On the one hand they will probably be grateful for just about anything, but on the other hand, they also want to put their own stamp on their first home so it can be tricky to pick out the right style.
Bearing this in mind, we would recommend going for something small and functional. We are thinking rustic vintage throws, candle holders or even some tupperware (we have to admit at Rustic Disguise we do love a good tupperware set!). As long as the item is functional and can easily be stored away we are sure they will love it.
For the couple who have it all
We’ve all been there, the couple who have it all invite you to the house warming party of the century and you don’t know where to start with regards to gifts and presents! We have to admit, in these cases our preference can often be for a simple bottle of wine, but if you are wanting to go for an actual present, a lot will depend on your budget. For instance you could go all out and buy them a vintage storage chest or even a chandelier. The problem with these items is if the couple don’t like what you have bought!
Therefore, our preference would be to go for something a little smaller but more personal, you could go for some hand stitched cushions, a charming lantern or even some vintage crockery. Whatever you do go for, make sure the present you buy fits in with their current style, otherwise it’s likely to end up in a charity shop within a week!
For your best friends
Buying a house warming gift for your best friend should really be easy but it can often end up as a bit of a nightmare just worrying if they will like it or not. But remember, you know them better than anyone else so trust your judgement!
Our personal favourite idea is to buy a photo album and fill it with pictures of the happy couple, you could even add in a few of the two of you! If this is a little too personal you could go for a hook for their keys or some vintage storage tins for their kitchen or bathroom. Either way, we are sure you will get it just right, after all, they are your best friend!
