I can imagine that buying/moving into your own home is one of the most stressful yet exciting times of your life; an experience that you’ll never forget. Unfortunately, there are so many fees linked to buying a house, like stamp duty, meaning re-decorating may be off the cards, to begin with.
I know when this is eventually me if the help to buy ISA does the job I’ll be wanting all the cute little knick-knacks to put throughout. My Christmas list would be a long one, including items ranging from bedding to kitchenware to bathroom accessories, even the smallest gift would make me over the moon.
If you’re looking to but a gift for someone who’s moving out in the near future or just has then look no further:
A new set of bedding can range from £15 to £60+ if you get a branded one, this idea allows you to get a decent gift whilst not having to spend lots of money. You can get a set of bedding that is seasonal to the time of year for example leaves and pumpkins for autumn and snowflakes for winter.
The cost of wallpapering these days may be out of budget for a first-time buyer, to begin with anyway. If you know this is something they would love to do then it can be a super thoughtful present; you’d be helping your loved one to re-decorate their bedroom or lounge to an area that is beautiful and relaxing.
A good quality knitted throw can be so luxurious to have in the bedroom or laid over your sofa for use on the chilly winter evenings. One of my favourites is this chunky knit from The Range.
Wall Art is one of those final touches that makes a house feel like a house, a bedroom feel like a place you want to go to snuggle up in. Although this is a lovely gift idea everyone has a different taste in art so maybe ask the person you’re buying for to select a few or see if they have a particular one on a wish list.
This is something no one owns until you have to, like why would you have your own set of cutlery whilst living with your parents, there’s no need. These are super practical gifts that would definitely get a lot of use of out them, you could get: knife, fork and spoon sets, bowl sets, place or mug sets, etc.
I doubt the home they’re moving into to is going to have curtains matching their style. If you know the individual you’re buying for has trouble sleeping with light in the room you could gift blackout curtains/blinds. I love these blackout curtains from Argos, super simple design yet so elegant.
