When it comes to gift etiquette, the lines can sometimes be a little blurry. Some events you already know it’s required to bring a present: baby showers, weddings, and birthdays. But what about housewarming gifts? There isn’t a requirement to bring one, but most want to bring a small token of friendship when these unique parties arise. We all want to show up at the front door with something special, but in these economic times, no one wants to break the bank. Luckily, Dallas has an abundance of specialty stores that have ideal tokens to complete a new home sweet home.
SampleHouse: This locally owned business has been helping fill homes since 1958. From their original location on Routh street, the store has grown into seven more. Their website says they have the “best candle selections around, with hundreds of fragrances from over a dozen top notch companies”, and they’re right. With sweet smelling brands like Votivo and Trapp, there is a fragrance for every taste. And let’s face it-a beautiful candle is always a safe gift choice….especially if it’s for a boss or co-worker. (Side note: SampleHouse has a gorgeous gift wrapping section to make this a one-stop shopping experience.)
