What’s a Housiversary and How Should You Celebrate?
The Internet has given us a lot of new holidays to celebrate: Siblings Day, National Donut Day, and the adorable National Puppy Day have all become unmissable additions to our work calendars. But there’s another trendy day joining the ranks, too, and it’s a bit more personal: the housiversary. For the homeowners among us, a housiversary is (as you might’ve guessed) the anniversary of the day you moved into or bought your home. And, yes, there are presents involved.
Laura Jennings, CEO of Knack (a company that knows a thing or two about gifting), is all about bringing the trend home. She advises that you use what you know about the home itself to make your present hit the mark. “For example, if what especially appealed to the new homeowner was the beautiful yard, then outdoor gifts like grilling sets, yard games, or birdhouses might be perfect for them,” Jennings tells Brit + Co. “But if she loved her new condo because the spacious kitchen was great for entertaining, then a bar or housewares gift might be just the ticket.”
Looking to celebrate your own housiversary soon? Or gift something special to your bestie? Here are some great gifting ideas to get the ball rolling.
