The idea of new furnishings, new buildings charms me; the smell of a new place is always distinctive. It is when we stay there that the place becomes ours and smells and breathes like us!
Yeah, so on that note I have been checking housing areas and it struck me almost there that I am going to throw a house warming party when I move in! Although, that depends on the number of friends I have in that city…. sigh!
But yes, house warming parties, are a total yes !!
Although I am going to pretty paranoid the whole time if my couch has wine spilled on it or the carpet has ketchup on it…. yep.. I will be just like Kim Kardashian… freaking out!!
To be honest, the best House Warming Parties have guests bringing in gifts just like a baby shower… and a thank you note from the host !
So gifts that I recommend would be-
Vases always find a purpose, with flowers or just as is… they look pretty always. And anyone can bring in any size and shape… it does not matter because there are countless number of ways, a vase can be used… yep.. think of a boho decor room… there are countless places. I find this Kate Spade one elegant and modern.
4. CRYSTAL PIECES
Finer crystal pieces are exquisite and too expensive so under $100 one can get a small crystal piece. Finer works can be found in Europe… that is where my crystal collection came from! If you want something similar to that, you can look at this piece.
5. ART & PAINTINGS
Painting look great as gifts. Well most of the time one does not know the style of one’s house or their decor styling. So I would reserve that gift for when you go out to shop for their home with the specific home owner whom you are gifting to.
A very formal gift is just plain flowers. Get a bouquet of carnations from your nearby Safeway Store and I am sure they would love to decorate them.
7. PHOTO FRAMES
When gifting a photo frame, keep in mind to place a picture and never give an empty one. To add a personal touch, add a picture of yourself with the new home owners and it will provide as an awesome memory.
