I love celebrating new beginnings, whether it by for myself or someone I know. Moving to a new place is a perfect time to do something special, even if it’s low key. There’s something really cool about giving a housewarming gift (or even getting one for yourself). It says “here’s something practical that you can love and use in your new home”. Spotlight recently told me about their new IMK Pro Colour range, and I knew that they would be perfect to share with you as fabulous housewarming gift ideas!
The beauty of a practical housewarming gift is that you can get something that you know they’ll use (even better if you know they need a new one) but might not buy a great one for themselves. Getting something practical, may not seem like the fanciest of gifts, but can really make a difference to how their (or your) home feels. Whether it’s them moving out for the first time, or to a new place. Here are 3 that will add a pop of colour to a new place!
As one of the most used appliances in my home, having a great kettle is something that can really help make a house feel like home. They can be a little dull, but having one that matches the colour scheme of the kitchen can really brighten the space. I love all shades of green and this one in Aqua makes me smile when I see it. It’s not always something you’d think of as a gift but can be so helpful when setting up a new space! (Would be great for a new office space too!)
Blenders are so handy to have, but aren’t really first on the list of must haves. They are great for whipping up smoothies and even a quick pancake mixture for a fun breakfast. They make a great gift because once you have one, you can easily find ways to use it. Having one in your colour scheme is like icing on the cake as they tend to live on the bench in plain view. I love this one because it’s easy to clean after use and easy to put back together too!
If you’re looking for something extra to add with it, some milkshake glasses or mason jars with straws would be perfect!
So, toasters don’t spring to mind as the most fun gift, but they are so practical and it’s great to have a nice one. They aren’t always at the top of the list for new things to get, but being practical and (now) pretty, makes them a great gift in my book! They are especially perfect for those moving into their first place.
If the people you’re buying for are having a housewarming party, it can be cool to join with some other mutual friends and organise to give them a set of small appliances or homewares. When my cousin bought their first house all her friends got together and pooled their money to buy them new things for the home! It meant that they got an awesome gift and were able to put them to use straight away. Such a clever idea!
The IMK Pro Colour range is available at Spotlight stores in these colours: Red, Black, Stainless Steel, White, Purple and Aqua. There is also a stick mixer that matches the above. Prices are: The 1.7 L Kettle $64.99; The Two Slice Toaster $44.99; The Blender $59.99 and The Stick Mixer $64.99.
