If someone you know (and like) has just moved into a new home, you may be scratching your head over what to buy them. Housewarming gifts are a tricky one - you want something that won't take up too much space and that'll be useful, but that hopefully fits within your budget. If that sounds too tricky, don't worry - we've got you covered. Here are out rop recommendations for a moving-in present that your loved ones will love
Ever since the pandemic, house plants have exploded in popularity, and for good reason - they look great on Zoom calls, help keep air fresh, and some are even believed to have healing properties. Many of us are serial plant killers, and if this description matches your gift recipient, you may want to opt for one of the easier-to-care-for species. Devil's Ivy monstera, aloe vera plants, or even rubber plants will look good in almost any domestic setting and are (almost) impossible to get wrong.
In recent years, air fryers have emerged as a novel, convenient way to prepare food. Not only are they a healthier alternative to standard frying, but they're also safe, easy to use, faster than oven cooking, and simple to clean. Whether they're serving up chicken and chips, tofu, or even vegetables like kale, this is an inventive, delicious asset for your giftee's new kitchen.
There's no better way to warm yourself to a new home than with a fresh fragrance. Candles, flowers, incense, or even air fresheners can all help to give a calming, pleasing scent to a new property - just make sure that you've chosen a flavor that you know they'll enjoy. If in doubt, it's often wisest to go with mild, natural aromas that stem from diffusing oils.
During the transition from old house to new, it's common to throw away anything that's too smelly, broken, or covered in saliva - yes, that includes (but is not necessarily limited to) pet toys. Giving an excitable dog, cat, parrot, or rodent something to do as your loved ones try to frantically unpack boxes might just be the best present of all. Luckily, there are plenty of ingenious and affordable toys that won't take up too much space.
The moving process can often prove surprisingly messy, and unless a vacuum was included with the property, many new homeowners find themselves lacking. These days, a new unit doesn't have to cost the world and often comes cordless, meaning you can hoover up any loose debris without having to worry about creating even more mess that you started with. Juist be certain, before purchasing any major appliances like this, that you've read in-depth product reviews from unbiased sources.
With the advent of remote working, home offices are increasingly common and there's every chance your loved ones are carving out a section of their new property for work-related activities. If this is the case, high-quality office furniture won't go amiss - you might opt for custom cabinets (these types of units must fit to measure), a chair with lumbar support or, to help with posture, an adjustable height standup desk.
Moving to a new home can be a stressful, emotional experience, and it's important that we lend a helping hand and show support for one another with each new beginning. A present is a great gesture and, if you choose well, can play a practical, useful role as well.
