Choosing Unique Housewarming Gifts for Young Adults
Moving into an apartment or house on your own for the first time is an exciting experience, but the limited budgets that most young adults have means they usually don’t start out with much. Unique housewarming gifts are the perfect way to give your loved one something useful but beautiful that they will remember for years to come.
Go for Something With a Theme
As you decide what you want to purchase for the new renter or homeowner, think about what he or she loves in life. Consider favorite colors, favorite forms of entertainment and favorite hobbies and incorporate one or all of them into your gift. Today’s traditional gifts can be made unique with pretty patterns or cute icons, or you could even personalize something with a familiar quote.
Look for Something to Help With Organization
Is the person you’re shopping for someone who likes to stay organized—or perhaps someone who could benefit from something to start being organized? You can customize everything from wall calendars to day planners, address labels or dry erase boards. Someone always on the go will love having a notebook to carry around, and dry erase boards make for a great notepad to stick by the front door for reminders. For a truly special gift, personalize one of each and give them in a gift basket. Choose from family photos, quotes, patterns, monograms and many other customization options.
Personalizing a gift shows your loved one just how much you care by providing them with something that literally nobody else will have. Whether you choose one of Shutterfly’s many premade printed options and customize it with words or you want to create something from scratch, there is no denying the joy and love that go into uniquely made housewarming gifts. Your college student, newlywed child or young professional will enjoy your gift now and look back on it fondly for the rest of his or her life.
