Great Home Decor Gifts On a Budget

If a friend or family member has just moved home and you’re looking for some fun home decor gifts for them, then why not try these cute and quirky personal gifts which don’t have to cost the earth?
Finding gifts to personalize a new home can be tricky. On the one hand, you want something useful – but on the other it’s hard to know what someone will appreciate and what will be an ‘eyesore’ if it doesn’t suit their personal style. But Monogrammed Gifts is a decision forever.
Something practical like this ‘scribble alarm clock’ will go down well in most households – it’s clever and useful, and not the sort of thing that someone is likely to get around to buying for themselves.

A family tree photo frame is a nice gift for a new family, too – mum and dad, the kids, and the grandparents can all have ‘spots’ on the tree, turning it into a truly personal touch.
If you want something more individualized, then embroidered cushions or monogrammed linen will go down well, and can look good too. Many people give these as wedding gifts – getting something custom made with the name of the couple, and the date of the wedding, embroidered onto it.

Tips for Choosing A Great Gift

If you’re thinking about getting someone a housewarming gift that relates to home decor, then make sure it will suit them. It would not be a good idea to get a large, engraved wooden clock or ornament if you know that the person in question is quite minimalistic, for example.
If you’re really not sure what their tastes are like, get something consumable – personalized candles, for example – so that they can always use them up and not feel obliged to keep the item on display in the long term.
Custom made coat hooks, signs, engraved clocks, even table sets or knife sets are all great options for gifts for new home owners. If you happen to know that the family is interested in genealogy, then perhaps get them something with the family crest on it, instead of their initials, so that it has an interesting story behind it as well as being truly personal.
