Choosing the Right
Complement for that
Are you having a hard time looking for that perfect gift for that special someone this heart’s day? Then search no more! Because not only will OUR HOME help you with that perfect gift but we will also pair it with it’s soul mate for that match made in heaven and guaranteed, your couple’s goals will be achieved immediately.
Flowers are the easiest to give this February and some people might even see it as a no-brainer but what if we spice it up a bit? Instead of just giving flowers, we strongly recommend a floral arrangement instead. OUR HOME prides itself in having the most varieties of flowers in all kinds and colors but what would make the gift extra special is if you take the time to have it arranged so that it can be a centerpiece in itself. That being said, matched with the right vase, the pair can easily be a conversation starter and would definitely spruce up any corner or any table surface in the home.
Be inspired with different floral and foliage combinations and have fun choosing the perfect container as well.
And, if this proves to be a challenge for you, we have floral stylists and flower arrangers who will be more than happy to assist you not only in helping you choose but in arranging them too.
THE NOSE KNOWS:
Scents and other fragrances are guaranteed to set the mood and give off the vibe that love is really in the air – figuratively and literally! But choosing the right scent can be a daunting task especially since there are a plethora of fragrances available in the market right now. That being said, let us narrow down the choices for you. Vanilla is innocent, casual and is very mild while lavender, like it’s namesake is flowery yet soothing and calming.
Lavender also spells love and is conducive to romance. Peppermint and lemon are scents that are considered stimulating and the equivalent of a perk-me-up and eucalyptus clears the mind and is more meditative. These scents usually come in diffuser bottles or bottles with reeds to effectively diffuse the fragrance sparingly and over long periods of time. As a complement, throw in a decorative tray to place these bottles on and what results is a well-curated gift idea that speaks thoughtfulness, organization and a practical approach.
LIGHT & LUXE:
Candles are functional and practical gifts but they are also considered a must as a table-top accessory. The beauty of candles is that not only do they give off soft and warm yet dramatic illumination but they also give off certain fragrances.
They come in a variety of sizes and colors but what OUR HOME follows is the rule of threes and therefore recommends that you give them as a set of three; small, medium and large. Not only will these look good on any table surface as it plays off on different heights but it can also be grouped as a collection. To create the perfect pairing for these would now be to show them off in candle holders and candelabras that match the theme and style of the interiors of the home. Candelabras and candle holders by themselves are already statement pieces and as a backdrop for candles accentuate the height and add on the charm and the drama. And, gifted together will spell a well-meaning and well-thought of gift.
