7 Gift Ideas to Brighten Up Someone’s Home

It can be difficult to figure out what people may need for their home. But luckily with some careful planning you can create the perfect gift! Here are some creative ideas for brightening up your friends or families lives.

Throw Pillows

You can never have too many throw pillows. If you are unaware of your friend’s colour scheme you can always pick out neutral colours. If you want to buy more vibrant colours but are unsure of whether your friend will like them or not you can always include the gift receipt so they can exchange them later.

Plants

For a personal touch you can pick up a planter and plant a few bedding plants for your friend. If you know they like to cook you can throw in fresh herbs like Rosemary, Basil, Thyme, Parsley, and Chives. They might start their own vegetable patch in their garden. If you know they don’t have green thumbs you can make them a small cactus garden. A hanging basket of flowers for their yard is always a nice, bright gift. Alternatively you could also pick up a small tree for them to plant in their yard.

 

Bottle of Wine or Spirits

Nothing brightens up somebody’s day like a bottle of wine or spirits after a hard day of work. Pick up a bottle of their favourite wine, the makings for their favourite martini, or a mixed pack of microbrew beer. You can also include customized etched glasses or a good corkscrew to go with these gifts. Include some crackers and a jar of pickles or olives so they have something to snack on as well.

Custom made tea towels or apron

There are many inexpensive options available for getting pictures printed on material, custom embroidery done, or custom printing on fabric. Pick up some inexpensive tea towels or aprons and create a personalized piece of art to liven up your friend’s kitchen. You can also order a gift box to present it in. They will think of you every time they see it.

 

Soup in a Jar

Moving is hectic. Create a meal in a jar by layering pasta, dried soup mix, and dried lentils, so that all they have to do to make the meal is add water and simmer.

A Small Tool Kit

An unusual gift but every household needs a tool kit of sorts. Pick up a small plastic case and fill it with basic tools like a small hammer, a three in one screwdriver, a wrench, some tacks for hanging pictures, a permanent marker, a flashlight, a small sewing kit, some matches and a candle. You can customize the kit by printing off a nice label that has your friend’s name on it and adding it to the kit.

 

A First Aid Kit

Pick up a small plastic case and fill it with the essentials that everyone needs for first aid emergencies. Make sure to include: Band- aids, small scissors, gauze, cotton, butterfly bandages, a tensor bandage, a bee sting kit, Calamine lotion, some sun block, and throat lozenges. You can customize the kit by printing off a nice label that has your friend’s name on it and adding it to the kit.
