When you are doing your holiday shopping, buying furniture for a loved one probably isn’t something that instantly comes to mind. Furniture makes a great gift, though. It is functional and thoughtful, and it is something that will remind recipients of you every time they use it. Furniture makes a great gift for a spouse, a parent, or even a child of any age. If you are thinking about giving the gift of furniture this holiday season, here are a few ideas for the types of pieces your loved ones will enjoy.
Living Room Sofas
Every living room should have a nice, comfortable sofa. It will likely serve as one of the most frequently used pieces in the home, so it should be one that people like sitting on. Whether you purchase a new one as a gift for your own home or you have one sent to another family member, a high-quality sofa is always a good gift. This is especially true for young adults who have flown the coop and are off on their own. An apartment size sleeper sofa and other apartment size furniture pieces would be immensely appreciated.
Sofas come in just about any style imaginable. From traditional leather sofas with classic designs to modern sleeper sofas with extra storage and everything in between, there are options that are well-suited to any household.
A new bedroom collection is a great gift for your spouse or child. Your husband or wife will be thrilled to find out what you are getting rid of the old set in favor of something much nicer and more comfortable. If you have tweens or teens, they will be excited to learn that their “little kid” furniture is being replaced with something a bit more grown up.
Even grown children with homes of their own would love to receive a new set of furniture from their parents. Furniture isn’t exactly cheap, so a nice bedroom set would be greatly appreciated by young adults who are just starting out.
Eating together as a family offers numerous benefits, for kids as well as adults. Eating dinner as a family builds stronger relationships, helps everyone make healthier food choices, and much more. If you have loved ones who lack a functional dining table, giving them one as a gift could help bring their family closer together. A larger dining table would also be a great gift for someone who frequently hosts gatherings but does not have a table that is large enough to seat everyone.
Give your loved one a cozy place to relax with a comfortable recliner. You can’t go wrong with a high-quality recliner that is upholstered in top-grain leather. Fabric recliners are a great choice, too, especially for families with children. A recliner chair is a perfect addition to the living room, bedroom, or any other room in the house, and, since it isn’t as large as a sofa, it will fit just about anywhere.
Giving Furniture as a Gift
Giving furniture as a gift is a bit trickier than, say, giving Dad another necktie. Doing so is well worth the effort, though. Since buying furniture tends to be personal, it may be best to let the recipient pick out what they want themselves. Of course, if you are buying for a spouse or someone you are extremely close to, you can likely predict what they will like.
Wrapping a sofa or bedroom collection is no easy feat. Instead, you may want to wrap up a photograph of the new furniture or write a card explaining the gift and when it will be delivered to their home. If you order your gift from Club Furniture, you could even order sample swatches to wrap up to give your recipient a better idea of exactly what they will be getting. There are a lot of creative ways to present a large gift like furniture.
If you are looking for a unique holiday gift that your recipient is sure to love, furniture is a thoughtful and practical choice. Rather than buying yet another sweater that will get shoved in the closet or a food gift set that will go uneaten, invest in high-quality furniture for your loved ones to give them a gift that will be loved and used for years.
