If you want to congratulate a friend or loved one on the purchase of a new home, treat them to a gift basket filled with luxurious items. If you know their personal decor style, then you can choose items that coordinate with it, or you can purchase neutral pieces that will work with any type of interior design elements.
Even if you’re on a tight gift-giving budget, you can still find items that offer a touch of luxury that will make the homeowner feel pampered as they settle into their new residence. When designing the basket, choose just one or two higher-end products, and fill it in with more basic items
Start with a decorative basket that the gift recipient can reuse around the home for storing towels, bath products or even holiday items. As another idea, use a picnic basket to hold the gifts as a creative touch. Here are some luxurious housewarming gift ideas to get you started.
Your BFF, sister or family friend is having a baby. Congrats to her! With her due date quickly approaching, a baby shower is on the horizon. That means you need to get her a stand-out gift. Sure, you could go with the same old package of onesies or the little hat and bootie combo that everyone else is getting her. Or, you could go with something that makes a statement. That is, a statement saying, “I only want you and your baby to have the best.”
How can you stand out from the rest of the gift-giving back and celebrate the new mama-to-be? Take a look at these way beyond basic baby shower gift picks.
Those teeny tiny little outfits are awesomely adorable. The soon-to-be mommy will totally appreciate a stylish set of baby clothes. Chances are that she’s already bought the basics.

What’s the Deal with Throw Pillows?
Decorative throw pillows can add a touch of comfort, style, and whimsy to your home. However, you might look at all the options and wonder why there are so many choices. This helpful guide will breakdown what you need to know to make the right selection.
The size of throw pillows you choose should be determined by the size of your furniture. The average size, which is between 16”-24″x 16”-24,” will work for a larger sofa. Oversized pillows create a comfy, lounge feel, but should be reserved for really large furniture with ample seating room. If your sofa is modern and compact, or you need a pillow for a delicate side chair, go for a smaller one, otherwise you will have to remove them to sit comfortably.
The typical fillings for pillows are feather, foam, or a synthetic mix. Synthetics maintain the shape of the pillow quite well and are cheaper than goose down, which is much softer and better quality. When selecting a filing, consider how you will use the pillows. Are they going to be leaned on or are you using them as decoration only? Cheap fillers stuffed with loose foam will break down from frequent use.
While a good rule of thumb is to go for an odd number of pillows, there’s nothing wrong with a symmetrical look. A more important consideration is how many will be suitable for the size of your furniture. There is such a thing as too many throw pillows. On a very large sofa, five decorative pillows will work, but most couches look best with just three. For a small chair, choose one pillow. For loveseats, go with two.
There are four basic pillow shapes – bolsters, squares, rectangles and rounds. Square pillows will provide the best full-back comfort if you need it to support your body while lounging. Also, consider the aesthetics of your furniture. Sofas with sharp lines can be softened up with round pillow, while round, large squares will give a balanced look to a rounded couch. If you can’t decide what size to choose, go for a mixture of two or three shapes.
