There are few things more exciting than moving home and settling into a new place. But there’s no denying that it can also prove an extremely stressful process. So, if you know someone who’s going through a move, you might want to splash out on a house warming gift to lift their mood and help them feel more comfortable in their new surroundings.
Every day, people up and down the country are going through it – data shows that in the first half of 2020 there were more than 270,000 completed house sales in England and Wales alone. Of course, those figures don’t take into account the thousands more who will have moved into rented accommodation. Whether your loved one has found their forever home or has made a switch on a more temporary basis, you’ll want to get them a gift they can treasure for a long time to come.
A home’s décor can have a major impact on its feel and, by extension, the mood of its inhabitants. With that in mind, you might want to pick out a print that your friend or family member can hang on a wall of their choice. It could be a relaxing landscape that helps to soothe the mind and ease anxiety, or it could even be a collage of some of the favourite memories you’ve made together.
Is the person you’re buying for a real coffee snob? Can they not function without that early-morning cup to get them up and running? If so, why not splash out on a coffee machine – a gift that’s guaranteed to get plenty of use. Or if coffee’s not their bag and they prefer a hit of fruit juice for their breakfast, you could always present them with a blender for all their smoothie needs.
For a lot of movers, one of the first major pieces of furniture to put in place are the sofas. After a long, hard day, it’s vital to have a comfortable place to unwind and switch off. To help them relax, you could always gift them some personalised cushions for an extra touch of cosiness to help them feel right at home.
Ok, so technically these will age (or expire eventually) and it might be classed as cheating a bit. But by giving them vouchers for their favourite store, you’re allowing them to get whatever it is they need most, guaranteeing their satisfaction. It may not be the most original idea, but it can prove especially useful for those who are extremely difficult to buy for.
