Today, a lot of couples choose to move in together before tying the knot, which means that you will be expected to get them two gifts – a housewarming present and a gift when they get hitched.
Wedding gifts are easier to pick that housewarming gifts, as normally most couples register for what they would like. However, when it comes to picking a housewarming gift, it’s down to you to find the perfect thing, which can make the present picking process incredibly complicated.
The good news is that although picking a housewarming gift can be a struggle; it doesn’t have to be. To make the process a little easier for you, below are some housewarming gift ideas that all couples are sure to love.
Interesting wall art
Wall art can make an amazing gift, if you pick the right piece, that is. Unless you are 100 percent sure that you know what design style they are going for and what their tastes are, don’t pick a piece that will only work in a certain type of space. Instead, pick a piece of wall art that is interesting and unique, but also neutral and that will work well in almost in any space. Black and white pieces tend to work best, especially pieces that center around a quote or saying, as they tend to fit well into any space.
DIY toolbox jar
A great housewarming gift is a DIY toolbox jar. This is a jar that you fill with all the essentials that new homeowners could possibly need. For instance, things like a mini tape measure, a multi-tool complete with screwdrivers, a mini hammer, a flashlight, nails, a mini spirit level, scotch tape, sandpaper, and a mini paint brush are all ideal. Obviously, you can tweak this to make it a good fit for the recipients – these are just some ideas to get you started. There are plenty of different options; it’s just a case of determining what the couple would appreciate receiving.
How about choosing a table piece as a housewarming present? The chances are that most of the couple’s money will be going on practical items, so they won’t have the money to splash out on things to make their home more beautiful. So why not give them something that they can display on their table when they have guests, such as silver candlestick holders, a beautiful ceramic bowl selection from Sora Ceramics, or a carved bowl or ornament. Pick something that you know the couple will like, and that will look good on their table.
How about giving the happy couple a food hamper or some sort? This could be a hamper packed with snacks and treats, or it could contain the ingredients to create a few meals, along with a cookbook. Don’t be afraid to get creative – go online and get some ideas and inspiration for items that you could put into the hamper. For this, Pinterest can be a useful resource.
So there you have it, a list of housewarming gift ideas that every couple will love.
