Most people are absolutely terrified to give any type of décor as a gift. This is usually because they are scared they will buy something that will not match, or they simply do not even know where to begin trying to decide what is appropriate. This is unfortunate because home decorating items are perfect gifts, especially for weddings or house-warming presents. Plus, most people are afraid to buy these items, so if you do, then your gift will stand out from the rest.

You really cannot go wrong with indoor water features. You will have a hard time finding anyone say they don't want one, but many people have difficult squeezing this type of luxury item into their budget. Even though there are plenty of affordable ones available, there always seems to be a bill to pay or something deemed more important to buy. This makes them perfect to give because gifts should essentially be things the receiver might not buy. Indoor water features are available in wall, floor, and tabletop varieties, and in a ton of sizes and finishes. There are even some so subtle they will complement any space they occupy.

Outdoor Items 

If the person you are buying for has a deck, patio, or even a small apartment balcony, there are numerous outdoor items you can purchase. Fountains and ventless fireplaces top the list, but also consider planters, garden statuary, birdbaths, wind chimes, and even rugs.


If you are going to buy a picture frame let it be dynamic. If you buy a simple black frame from the clearance section it will likely end up in the receiver's garage sale. The selection of frames is seemingly endless. Collage frames and shadow boxes are both popular. You can also have a frame engraved, which is a very popular thing to do for wedding and anniversary gifts.


This is a very broad category, so you have plenty of options. If you are willing to spend a little more then perhaps a chandelier will be on your list. You could also consider accent lighting options, such as LED lighted branch trees, star-gazing lamps, or unique nightlights.
