In the mood of the festive season, are you making a list and checking it twice? Trying to figure out a gift for a first time home-buyer? The numbers of gift ideas are endless, but a present for their new property should be top of everyone’s list.
Number one property portal Lamudi Nigeria gathered the hottest household gifts for any first time home-buyer, from throw pillows to area rugs. Whether it’s a small present for a friend or a way to spoil yourself, these are the perfect gifts.
For Lamudi, kitchen appliances should be one of the gift items being considered during the yuletide season. “No matter the size of the kitchen, appliances will always make life better. They are the perfect gift for those trying to get healthy and fit during the holiday season, or for the foodie who has just purchased a new home. Getting enough nutrients from fruit and vegetables can be hard, but with a new juicer or blender – a gift that keeps on giving – they can pack their five a day into a single glass,” Lamudi stated. For those who want to be better cooks or stay organized, there are endless kitchen appliances that will save countless hours and make amazing meals at the same time. “If this gift is for a family or friend, have a look around their kitchen and see what they are missing. A mixer, for instance, is always a popular holiday present for the kitchen. In general, mixers tend to be high quality and available in a number of unique colours to match any kitchen,” it stated.
The online property market stated that decorations make the perfect holiday gift for home lovers, as they offer countless possibilities. They range from home accessories to high quality rugs. Throw pillows are perfect for adding comfort and style, while a candle set can brighten up any home. “To make that gift extra special, be sure to offer a handmade home accessory, a new rug will be considered thoughtful, allowing them to change the look of any room,” it stated, adding that when choosing a rug as a gift, take into consideration the size, colour, and design of the room and the possibility of where the rug will be laid. Go above and beyond. Instead of choosing a typical rug, choose a fun and playful rug for a kid’s room or a fancy bathroom rug.
The holiday season means shopping and lots of it. Presents for family and friends are waiting to be bought, but don’t let the holiday madness become overwhelming when buying that special gift. Take advantage of the sales and find a gift for someone’s home. A piece of furniture always goes down a treat. For instance, a new chair will help spruce up a new home’s style and seating. Give their home a statement chair that keeps up with current trends, colour, design and style. A comfortable reclining chair makes a perfect gift for sports fans and movie lovers.
Think outside the box and consider bedding as a present option. New bedding will help keep your loved ones warm. Sheet sets are available in a number of colours and designs and are perfect for keeping the heat in during snowfall. Give your family and friends extra warmth this holiday season with an electric blanket to keep them comfortable throughout the festive nights. But bedding is not just for the bedroom. A super soft micro fleece or faux fur blanket are great stocking fillers and ideal for cuddling by the fire with a hot chocolate on Christmas day. Spread some holiday joy with fun cartoon sheets with colourful designs for the kids. For the adults, buy handmade, unique throw pillows and covers to give their bed a new look and feel.
