5 Thoughtful Gifts For Housewarming Parties

5 Thoughtful Gifts For Housewarming Parties

You know adulthood truly hits when your friends aren’t just celebrating birthdays but wedding receptions, housewarming parties and baby showers. 😳

That calls for a level up when it comes to gift-giving too. Getting that familiar feeling of racking your brain in desperation, thinking of the best gift for someone who holds a special place in your heart? 😓

Hear us out - we’ve arranged our speakers by home themes. Here are 5 aesthetic gifts that'll fit into any new home. 👀

Bohemian-style house featuring Sonos Beam


The Boho Chic Home

What it is:

Bohemian styles are defined by a lack of structure, opting instead for carefree layers of pattern, texture, and colour. The core of the bohemian aesthetic is that it's personal and relaxed. Boho styles are not styled for any other person's enjoyment but your own.

How to identify:

  • If your friend is into furniture with natural materials (e.g. wood or rattan)
  • An aspiring plant parent who’s into #planterior
  • Cozy low-raise furniture that mix and match

  • Sonos Beam – Soundbar
  • Marshall Acton II – Home Speaker
  • Sonos One – Home Speaker
  • Sonos Roam – Portable Speaker

Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are built into these speakers. So playing music, checking the news, setting alarms and even getting questions answered are completely hands free. 😱

So if they have a tight schedule, this is a great gift to help ease some of their mindspace. With Google Assistant spewing out reminders verbatim, it’s also great in helping them keep track of their schedule!

Speakers we recommend: Qualify materials, sleek design, larger than life sound.

With minimalism, most homes opt for sleek flat screen TVs for their living rooms. However, flat TVs alone give a flat sound. Give them the best movie experience with a high quality soundbar.

  • Sonos Arc – Dolby Atmos Soundbar
  • Sonos Beam – Dolby Atmos Soundbar
  • Klipsch Cinema 400 – Soundbar and Subwoofer Set
  • Klipsch The Fives – Powered Bookshelf Speakers

The Klipsch Cinema 400 Soundbar  doesn’t leave a hole in your wallet, but with big, powerful bass and enhanced details and clarity, this Klipsch horn-loaded sound bar isn’t to be belittled.

It’s also really easy to set up - say goodbye to the 10,000 wires that embellish traditional sound systems. All that’s required is a HDMI cable that comes with the soundbar itself and a power cable to connect it with the powerpoint!

Plug it into the TV, and there you have it - a premium home theatre experience. Just a single remote gives full control of the system too, including the wireless sub.

With easy usage and great sound, this is truly a gem! 💎

By giving this to the TV junkie in your life, you’d definitely ease up the burden of finding a great quality sound bar for their new home, especially since it’s an amazing asset when it comes to enjoying great, homely movie nights.

 

Industrial Style Home Featuring Sonos Arc

The Industrial Style Home

What it is:

The industrial style takes clues from old factories and industrial spaces that in recent years have been converted to lofts and other living spaces. It incorporates raw materials to give the space an unfinished feel.

How to identify:

  • Exposed pipes and ducts or wood x metal combo
  • Daring brick walls, concrete floors
  • Vintage furniture and accessories

Speakers we recommend: Statement speakers that say you’re serious about music

  • Marshall Stanmore II – Medium-sized home speaker
  • Marshall Acton II – Small-sized home speaker
  • Marshall Emberton – Portable bluetooth speaker
  • Klipsch The Fives – Powered stereo speakers

Here’s one for the friend who rocks out to the old and gold songs with you. The one who jams with you late at night and when a particular song comes on, you have a whole dance routine together (and you never forgot it)!

Get them a speaker that’s just as timeless and has just as much spunk and character. The Marshall Stanmore II is a sturdy, versatile speaker and it’s perfect for any room, big or small. 

With analogue control knobs that allow you to EQ the music any way you want, it is also highly customisable.

Even when blasting the volume to the max, it has clean and precise audio that’s simply mind-blowing! 🤯

A textured vinyl covering, salt & pepper fret and the iconic Marshall logo adorn the sturdy wooden frame of the speaker, and it’s the perfect addition to any room. Your best friend is sure to love this speaker, and I’m sure you’d be invited over for jamming sessions too! 🎤🎸🥁


Mid-Century Modern Home featuring Sonos Sub

The Mid-Century Modern Home

What it is:

It broadly describes architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century (roughly 1933 to 1965). This design includes clean lines, muted tones, a combination of natural and manmade materials, graphic shapes, and vibrant colors.

How to identify:

  • While furniture pieces of this style are undeniably beautiful in their simplicity, mid-century modern design is all about functionality. 
  • Statement pieces like large sculptures or plants are more common, whereas small trinkets or collections are generally out of sight.
  • Contradicting materials and textures, with a mix of neutral colours.

Speakers we recommend: Speakers with a seamless and discrete design

  • Sonos One – Smart Wireless Speaker
  • Sonos Fives – Hi-Fidelity Stereo Speakers
  • Sonos Sub – Wireless Subwoofer

Good audio doesn’t have to be complicated. And Sonos makes things easy to use, while sounding brilliant.

Maybe you’re looking to buy something for the cousin you grew up with your whole life - the one you played block catching with and went through the ups and downs of life with. 

Perhaps you never gave them anything to appreciate them before but well, this is your chance. Get something that could last over a decade. The Sonos Arc is one such investment.

It is the premium smart soundbar for TV, films, music, gaming, and more - the perfect addition to the living room.

More than surround sound that enraptures your senses from left to right, with the Arc’s upward-firing drivers and Dolby Atmos, you get a multi-dimensional soundstage that encapsulates you into the realm of entertainment, as though you’re really in the show. 🤩

The Sonos Arc was carefully tuned with the help of Oscar-winning sound engineers, so you get a sound that is crystal clear - like a trip to the cinema every time you switch on the television.  

Another reason why it’s an investment, is because Sonos is built on software that is continually upgrading and improving itself. 

So over the years, the Sonos Arc isn’t going to deteriorate, but the sound is going to get better and better. 🌟 

Get the Sonos Arc for your favourite cousin, and you’ll find a reason to visit them almost every night for a family movie night (just like the good ol’ days). 😉
