House warming gifts: saying it with words

Have you ever received house warming gifts that said something? I don’t mean figuratively.

I’m drawn to two things when I visit a person’s home — photographs and words. I love to gaze at photographs of the family — they allow me a peek into that person’s life and sometimes even their journey so far.

The words — in the form of quotes or phrases — do something better, they give me an insight into the nature of the person — what do they like? what are their beliefs and values? what makes them tick? They’re more than just a part of the décor; they’re there to inspire and remind  the people living in that home of the things that matter to them; sometimes they’re there just to make you smile.

That’s why I like posters and boards that with phrases and quotes. They are perfect house-warming gifts. The good part is I can tailor them to match the nature and personality of the people I’m giving them to. You can even paint one of your own. Here’s one I made for my home.

Here are some of my favourites from Pinterest.
