Is it just us or is everyone moving house right now? No, it’s not just our imagination, spring is actually the season that most people get in the moving mood. Which means new houses, and, of course, housewarmings. And as far as housewarming gifts go, there is no better place to find one than right here at MU Australia. Yes, we may be biassed, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true! Here are our picks of everything we’d like to receive if we were having a housewarming.
OK we know it’s not groundbreaking, but candles will always be a crowd pleaser. Who doesn’t love a candle? Only those without a nose (or without taste, surely?). Plus there’s a scent for every type of fragrance lover.
The all rounder: Urban Apothecary Fig Tree Large Boxed Candle, $75
The floral lover: Lollia Always in Rose Boxed Candle, $75
Not into candles? How about some boutique incense instead, like Margaret River by This is Incense, $39 which has notes of Cedarwood, Fragonia, Sandalwood and Mandarin.
Bougie bathroom soap:
Upgrade their bathroom to hotel-status with a sexy soap situation. Yes, it may be a “boring” essential, but that’s precisely why it should be luxe - you use it every day, so you’ll enjoy it every day.
Al.live Body Australia Raspberry Blossom and Juniper Wash and Lotion Duo, $79 comes with a matching scented lotion, and a chic tray for the full hotel experience; Cedar and Stone Tainted Hands Lime & Olive Leaf Hand Wash, $18 contains olive leaf extract which is a natural anit-fungal and anti-viral as well as smelling great; Urban Apothecary Oudh Geranium Luxury Hand And Body Wash, $44.95 is a perfectly balanced scent, with the heady resins of Oudh offset by geranium for a luxe appeal; Wild Emery Coconut Mojito Natural Soap, $14 is about as sexy as bar soap can get with a scent that smells like only good times (holidays, summer).
What more luxurious gift is there than a signature scent for the home? There simply is none. Here are a few of our favourites:
Chic: Urban Apothecary Velvet Peony Room Spray, $65, is perfect for those whose house belongs in the pages of Vogue Living.
Uplifting: Blossom Refresh Aromatherapy Room Mist, $13.95 is ideal for families or people living with a little more chaos in their lives as it can freshen up, energise and also help with sleep.
The crowd-pleaser: Al.ive Body Australia Pink Salt and Citrus Room Spray, $28 is amazing for those who just want a room to feel fresh without it smelling too heady or fragranced.
Quirky but fun:
For those who like things on the quirkier side - don’t we’ve got you covered too. These gifts spell fun but will also be useful and loved.
Smelly Balls Reusable Car Freshener in Sun Seeker, $19.95: Technically yes, these are made for the car, but they also work as wardrobe fresheners and can even hang in the bathroom - basically anywhere you’d like it to smell nicer.
Wild Emery Shower Steamer Collection - Boxed Gift Set, $56: Perfect for those who don’t have a bath (but wish they did!), these clever things activate with steam to release aromatherapy oils and scent your shower in bliss.
Infinite She Crush The Day Detoxifying Bath Salts, $39.95: If they do have a bath, how can you go past this little daily self-love boost? They can feel good and get a confidence boost all in one – and you win the friend olympics.
