Housewarming gifts.

My good friend Rachel just bought her very first home (yay!), and I am so excited for her. We both love to organize--I know, but there are worse problems to have--decorate, and do DIY projects, so I feel like although she bought the house, I kind of did too, thinking of all the fun things to do! HA. I told my mom I'm happy my friend Danielle is having a baby and Rachel is buying a house "for me," so that I can just keep traveling and meeting cute boys :)

Anyway. I knew that this past Christmas I wanted to find a gift for Rachel that could double as a housewarming/Christmas gift, and for some reason thought a custom doormat would be perfect! I didn't want some overwhelming, stuffy monogrammed one (as she said, if it read "Welcome to Rachel and Matias' new home, please wipe your feet!" it would have been too much); instead I had this idea in my head of their tiny initials placed in the corner of the mat. Well, ask and you shall receive! I stalked the Internet until I found someone who kind of did what I wanted, on The one I saw said "Hi." in the lower right corner, and I asked the seller if she could make one custom for me, which she happily consented! Above, you will see Rachel's doormat, monogrammed for her and her boyfriend, Matias. Isn't it adorable! She loved it, which I was so happy about.

(PS, I totally can see this being used for their engagement photos...which I'll surely be taking in the future!)

(PPS, You can find the doormat here!)


  1. thanks for the shout out :) need ideas on where to put the doormat so it doesn't get ruined! is it weird that i don't want to step on it?!

    1. Lol rai! I had a nice doormat once and placed it t the bottom of our stairway in the house! Stayed clean and cute :) congrats!!

  3. Undeniably believe that that you stated. Your
    favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as people think about concerns that they plainly
    do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and
    defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , other folks can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
