Do you know someone who recently moved into a new home and now he’s having a housewarming party? It’s a nice idea to bring a gift. Purchasing a home is a big deal and a lot of people appreciate even a small gift to welcome them into their new dwelling.

You may not know a lot about his style preferences, though, or how he’ll decorate his house. You might be hesitant to go out and purchase something for fear someone else will buy the same thing (like barware) or it won’t be his taste (not everyone loves a ceramic rooster statue).

Instead, purchasing a gift card for a home decor store might be a better gift option. This way your friend or acquaintance can pick out exactly what he wants for his new home.

Before diving right into a selection of luxury home decor shops, consider the Giftbar of Choice. This is an ideal gift if you know very little or nothing at all about your friend or acquaintance’s home decorating preferences.

The Giftbar of Choice gives him the opportunity to shop any one of our chic home decor merchants.

For those with a better idea of the new homeowner’s design tastes, here’s a selection of high end home decor stores to choose from.

Red Barn Mercantile (Alexandria, VA)

If the new homeowner likes flea markets and antique shops, consider a gift card to Red Barn Mercantile. The shop’s owner, Amy Rutherford, wanted to create an experience for customers that catered to people who loved vintage and modern and quirky and classic.

Artemisia (Geneva, IL)
