About Home Décor & Coziness
Décor & Coziness items make fabulous gifts for adult recipients that value the comfort and beauty of their home. Apparently, the impact of such gifts gradually goes up with the recipient's age and peaks somewhere around the point of acquiring their own house or apartment. Some of the best occasions for such presents are house-warming celebrations.
All in all, this kind of gifts includes everything that's not essentially a must-have of any sort but surely makes a home more pleasant, comfortable, or pretty to live in: vases, carpets, bookends, houseplants, bedding items, picture frames, throw pillows, and everything of the sort.
There are just two universal pieces of advice in this matter:
First of all, abstain from buying what you like in a home and focus on the preferences of your recipient: after all, you're not the one who'll be living for years with this gift. Always dedicate at least one hour into researching the basics of the home decor style your recipient likes (also, asking doesn't hurt, you know).
And second, be aware that there's always a good chance you'll miss the target with your gift. Even if you know pretty well what your recipient would like in their home, your vase (plant, carpet, clock, etc.) just might... Not click with him or her. That's possible, and that's alright: don't get too upset over it. Remember, everyone has the right to live in a place decorated the way they like: if a gift doesn't fit that picture, no one is required to cope with it.
The only exception, perhaps, is the niche of fandom-related home decor items. For example, a Harry Potter-themed lamp is practically guaranteed to be a success among HP fans of any age.
With home decor gifts, the main thing that matters is the loving thought you'd put into the present, so open up your heart and start browsing the options! :)
