A friend or loved one has moved into a new home, they’re throwing a party to celebrate the occasion, and you know there’s no way you can turn up empty handed. But how do you avoid getting them something that they’ll never use? Or even worse, something unimaginative that they’ll receive from half a dozen of the other guests as well? Here are 5 unique housewarming gifts.
Custom Canvas Art
For a gift that really shows you’ve put some real thought into it then a piece of personalized canvas art is just the thing. Perhaps a photograph of you with the recipient, or maybe a quote that means something to you both that will make them think of you every time they look at it.
All you have to do is upload your chosen image, let us know what you want the end product to look like, and leave the rest to us. And best of all, because you’ve designed it, you know that it’s going to be completely unique and you’re not going to be embarrassed by someone else gifting them the same thing.
A Mini Toolbox
Most homes will have something that needs doing to them, even if it’s just a few nails in the wall to allow some canvas art to be hung. But particularly if it’s their first home, they more than likely don’t have a toolkit. You can either put one together yourself full of useful tools, or purchase one that’s got everything they need. A mini toolbox is both thoughtful and useful, and something that they’ll be able to put to good use for years to come.
Some Cool Key Covers
With a new house it often takes a while to get used to the new locks and keys. Help them out with some cool key covers which will mean they immediately know which one is for which lock. They’re a cheap but extremely useful option to go for that will have them thanking you every time they open their door. There’s an endless choice of key covers to pick from, with everything from emojis to animals on offer. Go for something that they’ll appreciate which will also show how well you know them.
A Homemade Meal
House moves are often chaotic and stressful periods for those involved, and when all of their kitchen equipment is boxed up then even the simplest of meals can be a pain to prepare. Why not hand cook them their favourite meal ready for them to simply heat up and scoff when they want to. Chose something that can be quickly heated up straight out of the freezer or eaten fresh right away.
A Bottle Opener
Kitchen equipment is usually some of the last stuff to be unpacked, but after the stress of moving house it’s normal to want to relax and unwind with a glass of wine at the end of the day. Finding exactly where they put the bottle opener in a sea of boxes is almost impossible, so save the day by gifting them a bottle opener, and why not throw in a nice bottle of their favorite tipple at the same time.
