Congratulations on buying your new home. It’s a huge achievement! Whether you are a young family or a singleton moving out of your parent’s home, it’s certainly something that needs celebrating. This is a special day for you, so your family and friends may wish to mark the occasion by getting you a moving in card or gift. The gift may be something practical or something a little more personal to make your home feel more homely. If they ask you for ideas for a moving in gift of something you might want or need, this list might help.
A Coffee Machine
If you’ve got a new arrival in the family or you are expecting one, a coffee machine will certainly come in handy to keep you awake during sleepless nights looking after your gorgeous new baby. Coffee machines look great in any kitchen and you’ll love offering your guests a latte or cappuccino rather than the average cup of coffee. You can get a good quality coffee machine for under £50 and you usually buy the pods to go with them separately.
A Helping Hand
If you’re not one that likes to receive presents, you could ask your friend for a helping hand. Ask them for the gift of their time and for them to help you choose your new furniture with you or to borrow their car boot to help you with the move. It is always nice to have a second opinion on your interior design choices. Why not take a trip to the likes of Ikea and get everything you need at once, from furniture to plants and even kitchen utensils?
A ‘Boring Things You Need’ Hamper
There is lots of bibs and bobs you need when moving into a new home. You will need cleaning products, bin bags, clothes pegs and kitchen utensils etc. These little things can mount up to a lot, so suggest to family and friends buying bits and bobs to help you out and save the exciting stuff like buying the furniture and electrical appliances to yourself. It may not be the most exciting house-warming gift ever, but it will certainly be practical.
Family Portrait Experience
You’re going to need something to decorate your walls, and what could make your home look more personal and homely than a family portrait from the likes of Venture? This would be a truly special gift that you can treasure forever. It will mark the occasion in a way that can be hung in your home to remind you of the special day. Get the family together and hang the photograph above the fireplace proudly.
A Beginner’s Gardening Kit
If this is your first home with a garden, you might want to add a few flowers beds to keep it looking fresh and colourful. Request a beginner’s gardening kit which could include things such as gardening tools, seeds, and plant pots to get you on your way.
