Some of the best gift ideas are created when using your imagination and taking a real interest in the individuals wants and needs. Sometimes this may not be the most exciting present in the world, however it may be extremely practical. If you are looking to buy a present for an individual who has just moved to a new house then there are hundreds of options, however a lot may be out of your price bracket. You may like your friends but not enough to renovate their house! So how do you go about buying presents for someone who has just moved into a new house?
When purchasing a present; a voucher can always be a great gift if you have a budget as you stick within your price bracket, however you help your friend make the final order using your discount. This may work well with new pieces of furniture or something even more permanent such as flooring perhaps. Now I know what you’re thinking, how on earth can I possibly purchase brand new oak flooring for a friend. It is quite simple, you would speak to the company and ask for some sort of voucher or discount code. The easy option would be to slot some cash in an envelope, but it doesn’t quite have the same effect. It will kickstart the renovation project and your friend will forever think of you as they fall in love with their new oak floor.
The same can happen with furniture although you could potentially invest in an accessory. For example, if you know your friend was purchasing a new sofa then you could offer to purchase a couple of cushions or even a few throws for the colder months. Furniture and accessories can be extremely specific to an individual’s needs and could be a risky option, so it would be advised to discuss this with the individual you are buying for first. However, if you are wanting a few safer options then there are lots of choices available.
A photo frame would be close to the top of the list because it still gives the gift receiver a lot of variety. The gift receiver still has the ability to choose the pictures that go inside the photo frame and also where the photo frame will be positioned in the house. It will always be nice for yourself to visit the house and know that you purchased the photo frame that has a beautiful picture in.
You could also go down the route of purchasing an ornament such as a vase or fruit bowl. Many new homes can look empty at first until they have properly been lived in and it is amazing how a little bit of decoration can make such a big difference. An empty fruit bowl or vase can have a great effect on their own, however as soon as you fill the ornament it really does have the potential to make the house look lived in. It will always be an item of remembrance where the homeowner will think of you every time they have a lovely bouquet of flowers delivered.
