Great New Home and Housewarming Gift Ideas
With new shoots starting to pop their heads through the soil, and the evenings getting lighter with each passing day, these signs of Spring signify new beginnings, raise spirits, and help propel us forward through the year.
It's no surprise then that at this time of year the property market starts to become more active.
And this means that lots of lucky people will soon be moving into their lovely new homes!
If you have friends, family, or even new neighbours who have just moved into a home, what better way to help them settle in than with a heartfelt gift?
We've come up with some ideas that are both beautiful and practical, and are sure to put a smile on any new home owner's face.
A stylish scented candle or reed diffuser makes for an indulgent yet useful gift, gently filling a room with subtle fragrance, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere.
We have a selection of Narbeth home fragrances that even come stylishly packaged in a beautiful champagne gold coloured box, and ribbon, so you won't even have to worry about gift-wrapping!
It's all about the little details in a home, and a serving tray is a great way to add a splash of colour without dominating an interior scheme – and wouldn't breakfast in bed, served on a beautiful turquoise wooden lacquer tray, be a lovely way to start life in a new home?
We have lots of stunning trays to choose from on our Interiors website.
For those who have recently downsized, storage will be a key element in the new place. We have an array of brightly coloured cabinets to keep items hidden away, whilst creating a fresh and contemporary feel, as well as solid wooden units in muted tones for a more rustic and neutral look.
We even have leather and lacquered wood storage boxes to brighten a dark and dull corner whilst maximising storage and keeping things tidy.
Artwork on the walls really can make a house feel like a home, so for a personal gift that will put the finishing touch to someone's décor, browse the range of original paintings, limited edition prints and sculpture on our online gallery.
Home Sweet Home by Katie Dawkins has a wonderfully light-hearted appeal that is sure to make anyone instantly feel at home.
For those who like to bring the outdoors in, we have a stunning selection of landscape-themed limited editions and original paintings, like The Viaduct by Joe Ramm, a romantic depiction of a train making its way through rolling country hills, in soft and calming colours.
If there is simply too much to choose from, we can even create a personalised gift voucher, with the recipient's name and a little message, for a thoughtful gift that allows the new homeowner to buy a gift of their choice from our Fordingbridge gallery or Interiors showroom.
So whether someone is downsizing, upgrading to something bigger, or making that first step onto the property ladder, we have plenty of home accessories and gifts that will make moving on to pastures new a truly wonderful experience.
