Finding the perfect gift for someone moving into a new home can be tricky. Will it match their current decor or colour scheme? What is something they need? Is there something that says “thinking of you” without going over the top?
Actually, moving is the BEST time to incorporate a new item, colour or unique gift into a house. Often times, the new residents are unsure of what to hang on what wall — and may have more walls, shelves and rooms than they did in the previous home.
Thrift stores can help you find something unique for the new home of a friend, family member or even someone new to the neighbourhood. From wall art to new clocks to a coffee cup to use that first morning while most of their dishes are still packed, thrift stores have your housewarming gifts covered.
In additional to functional and practical house gifts, thrift stores are a hub for the quirky, unusual and unique gifts that can’t be purchased from department stores or online. One of a kinds are thrift store specialties.
Next time you want to welcome a new neighbour and celebrate a friend’s new home purchase, pop into Community Services Thrift Store (731 North Road, Gibsons). Come see what we have in store for you!
