With the crisis-induced lockdowns easing slowly, we are now able to meet people outside and enjoy some socially distanced company. If you are eager to head around to your friend’s new place, you might want to take something with you for a house warming gift.
With the world having been closed down for the past three months, it can be difficult to work out the tone of the gathering that your friend is hosting. House-warming soirees are usually full of hugs, congratulations, and close contact. This cannot happen at the moment, so you are restricted with what you can experience at the new dwelling. A house tour may be off the cards but a garden barbecue might not be. Take a look at these ideas to inspire your house warming gift-giving during this time of difficulty –
The most thoughtful gifts are those that veer away from the generic. Rather than picking up some tea towels for the kitchen of your nearest and dearest, you could opt for a more customized approach. Tea towels printed with their faces, their names, or a Google street view of their new pad can be quirky and raise a smile. Alternatively, consider personalized mugs, glassware, and coasters. Gifting them something that is bespoke will ensure that your present remains in the home for a long time and will be a memorable addition to their new pad. If your friends are cooks, his and hers aprons could go down well. Or perhaps some personalised egg cups will generate a few laughs. You know them best and there are so many great personalised gifts out there now, go wild and choose something special.
If your friends love nothing more than heading outside, the chances are that they have a great garden with their new place. Gift them something to help them enjoy their new outside space. Organic herb garden starter sets are great to add a touch of greenery to a fence or outside area. Veggie troughs are large but super for those new homeowners who fancy growing their own grub.
If garden space is limited but you know that your friend adores all things flowers and foliage, consider a bespoke bouquet from Fig & Bloom. This online florist will deliver a freshly created bouquet direct to your pal’s door, complete with their favourite blooms, from hyacinths to hydrangeas and from crocuses to chrysanthemums. Bringing the outside in could be your inspirational house warming gift to them.
If you are heading to a house warming gathering just after your friends have moved in, they may not have had time to unpack yet. This chaotic time of moving is stressful and the little things can quickly be forgotten about. To save your pals from relying on takeaway pizzas because they haven’t unpacked their cooking utensils yet, gift them some one-pot homecooked meals that you have created to ease their kitchen stress.
This simple, yet thoughtful gift, can leave your friends feeling overwhelmed by your consideration, especially during these difficult days. Lasagnas, casseroles, pies, and curries are great to heat back up in the oven for convenience on their busy days to come.
I hope you like these three house warming gift ideas and manage to choose something inspirational for your friend or loved one’s new humble abode. Happy shopping!
