Essential Holiday Gifts for New Home Owners
Whether you have noticed a new family moving into the neighborhood or you have a friend who has recently made a move, coming up with housewarming gifts that are both practical and attractive can be challenging. Although many people may have an idea of the perfect gift for a new homeowner, choosing something that is unique yet timeless and high-quality is always a good way to welcome someone to the neighborhood.
Luckily, during the holiday season, it’s easier than ever to find a festive welcoming gift for your friend or new neighbor. Plus, with the current world events keeping us at home this year more than ever, freshening up our living spaces are on top of our minds. Home décor is anticipated to be the hot holiday gift trend for 2020. Here are our favorite in-store picks.
What Is a Good Gift For a New Homeowner?
Although it is commonplace to show up at a housewarming party with a gift for the homeowner, coming up with a unique gift while still being functional should be the goal. New homeowners receive a lot of consumable goods from friends and neighbors, but you can make an impact by giving a gift with longevity.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift, try a practical present for every day or a more festive one for the holiday season. Either choice will bring your friends joy for years to come. The key is to choose a gift that the homeowner will really want and appreciate, so you should also take into consideration how well you know the recipient and the type of décor the individual likes.
Practical Housewarming Gifts
A practical housewarming gift is one that is as useful as possible to the new homeowner. It’s possible to find a practical gift that can still be a unique and attractive addition to the home.
When selecting a gift, take a moment to consider what items you frequently use in your home. Even though consumable gifts are popular and appreciated in the short-term, a gift that can become a long-term or permanent part of the décor can be a better solution for many new homeowners, especially if extra care is taken to make the perfect selection.
Examples include high-quality throw blankets, scented candles that are also beautiful for decoration, and other accessories that go well with a variety of home interior design looks.
Throw blankets are the perfect addition to a living room or other seating area because they instantly transform the space into a cozy place to settle in. Mohair throws are a unique choice because not only are they soft, fluffy, and lightweight, but they are also excellent at keeping a regulated temperature.
Unlike other types of fabrics and materials, mohair saturates well during the dyeing process which results in beautiful and vibrant color options that can beautify any space. The blanket will quickly become your favorite. Our throws are produced by the same mill that has sheared, dyed, and woven the wool since the 15th century in Spain.
Artisanal scented candles
Artisanal Scented candles are well-known as excellent gifts for nearly any occasion since they provide a pleasant scent throughout the home while simultaneously creating ambiance. What sets artisanal candles apart from other types of scented candles is the craftsmanship of the items.
Artisanal candles are typically designed with a carefully customized scent and hand-poured with the highest-quality materials, whether soy or beeswax. Although many contain traditional cotton wicks, others use wooden varieties. Artisanal candles come in both traditional and luxury containers, which means you can choose to let the piece blend in or stand out as much as you want.
On a side note: With 2020 fizzling out many of our travel plans, burning a candle to take you on a great escape. Our selection of artisanal scented candles by Bougies La Francaise, are hand-poured in France. They mix scents of spiced vanilla, tobacco, rhum, cashmere, and cedarwood in a gentle and sophisticated way. With over 60hours of burn time to remind us to slow down, refocus, and relax.
Home décor accessories
If you want to choose a practical gift that can be used for a long time, choose timeless home décor accessories that have a twist of a current trend. For example, a magazine rack is a practical gift but you can add a modern twist by choosing one made from metal to give a rustic look. Or, choose a wooden serving tray that can double as a charcuterie board if your friend loves to entertain. If you choose to go with a plant to spruce up home décor, try succulents in an artistic pot instead of a vase of flowers. There are many ways to take your go-to gift to the next level when you add a twist of modern.
Christmas Ideas for New Homeowners
If the new homeowner in your life happens to move close to the holiday season, what better way to extend a welcome than to add a little festive cheer to the home? The easiest way to accomplish this is to choose items that would make perfect housewarming gifts at any time during the year and add a festive touch to create holiday gifts for new homeowners.
If you have already decided to try a mohair throw, choose one that is in a rich emerald green or burgundy to add festive flair. Your Christmas ideas for the new homeowner do not have to be overtly holiday-themed but add just enough of the spirit of celebration that they can be relished at any time of year. Think sparkles, light, red and green hues, saturated plaids, and items that are useful for family gatherings.
