Finding the perfect housewarming gift can be challenging, especially when it’s for a close friend. You want to get a gift that suits the personality of the homeowner and is also something that will hold sentimental value over the years. The budget is a whole new ballgame. Yes, it is taxing by any yardstick.
We gave this a lot of thought and have compiled a list of gift ideas that may help you achieve the almost impossible — the perfect gift. Even if these ideas don’t appeal to you, they may be inspirational. So, read on!
1. Gorgeous Planters
Gold is in, and what better way to begin life in a new home than by adding some plants to the decor? While gold is a go-to material, you can hunt for more exciting planters in materials such as ceramic or copper too. While you are at it, add interesting indoor plants as well.
2. Wine Cabinet
A wine cabinet isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when gifting. And it is also the last thing on your friend’s mind when decorating their new home, as their focus is on the essentials. So, with this gift, you are sure to nail it! It is pricey but classy.
3. An Exotic Table Lamp
Table lamps easily fit into any decor, no matter the style or the era, as most homes have contemporary decor. With the large collection available in the stores, you shouldn’t have much of a problem. Pick something that will add drama to the decor.
4. A Classy Mirror
Mirrors are trending. What’s more, they make themselves at home in any decor, giving it a classy vibe. As they can be used in any space, you don’t have to worry about your friend already having one. As mirrors come in every size and budget, you are sure to find something that suits you.
5. Luxurious Bed Linen
Bed linen is a home decor essential and makes a perfect gift. But hey, stay away from vibrant colors. They may not match the decor, or your friend may not have the same taste as you. Neutrals are your best bet, as they fit into any scenario.
6. A Ganapati Idol
If you play this right, your friend will always thank you for this gift. Straddle the auspicious and stylish design to make a statement. This can be a wall piece or a statue, depending on what’s available. If you don’t find the perfect piece, a Buddha statue will do just as well.
7. Cheeseboard and Cutters
What’s better than some wine and cheese after a meal? This gift is sure to be a winner, and may even encourage your friend to serve cheese after a meal! A definite win-win situation.
8. A Playstation
While the price is steep, you can’t put a value on friendship. Your friends will thank you and mean it! What’s more, they will think of you every time they use it!
9. A Wooden Salad Bowl
With the focus on health, salad bowls are gaining popularity. You never know, your gift may inspire your friend to eat healthy! The best part? It’s the perfect gift if you have a low budget.
10. Wine Glasses
When things get rowdy during a party, glass stems tend to crack. So, no matter how many your friend has in their collection, your glasses are not going to collect dust. If your budget allows it, throw in an ice bucket and tongs too.
