For someone who owns a house or is moving soon, small furniture pieces make ideal gifts. Although not as costly as larger items like sofas and beds, they will make an enduring impact in the recipient’s home. Not only will these pieces serve them well for years to come, but they may even become family heirlooms that the recipient can cherish for life.
