How to Give the Gift of New Furniture for Christmas

Are you thinking about giving your loved one new furniture for Christmas?

Every year, plenty of gift givers visit furniture stores and asking how they can give the gift of new furniture during the holidays. At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Decor, we work with customers every day to help create amazing living spaces for them and their families.

In this article, we take a look at the best way to gift furniture and how to make the experience fun and exciting.

Should You Pick Out Furniture for Someone Else?

Gifting furniture can be a wonderful thing. But first, it’s important to address whether or not you should pick it out yourself.

Most people’s choice in furniture is a special expression of their personality, style, and home. This is why the person receiving the furniture should pick out what they want.

Another reason they should pick out their furniture is so they can try it before you buy it. Everyone’s idea of comfort is different.

And if you pick out the wrong piece of furniture, your loved one could experience neck, back, and leg pain.

For example, recliners come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. You can learn how to pick the perfect recliner by downloading this free guide.

Take Them Shopping in Advance

The only time you should buy furniture for someone is if they’ve gone shopping and know exactly what they want. Make sure they give you the exact specifications including:

  • Style Number
  • Cover Number
  • Options & Upgrades

One of the biggest benefits of La-Z-Boy furniture is the ability to customize it to individualized needs. With over 900 fabric choices and unique customizations, they can get exactly what they want without sacrificing style or comfort.

Purchase a Gift Certificate

When it comes to finding the ideal present that combines luxury, comfort, and style, a La-Z-Boy gift certificate stands out as a versatile and thoughtful choice.

A gift certificate allows the recipient to choose from a diverse selection of recliners, and other living room or dining room furniture while ensuring that they get the perfect fit.

And, if the thought of purchasing furniture overwhelms them, with La-Z-Boy Furniture, you’ve taken care of a financial piece for them. Then, they can receive free interior design help from their local La-Z-Boy Furniture Gallery.

Furniture shopping doesn’t have to be overwhelming or confusing. As a matter of fact, it can be a fun experience!

Their team has completed thousands of interior design projects. And this personalized service is tailored to your life, style, and budget.

Did we mention this service is completely free? You’ll only pay for the furniture your loved one decides to buy.

When is the Best Time to Buy?

You’ve probably noticed a rise in furniture store advertisements around the holidays. However, many furniture stores will have a promotion running even if it isn’t advertised.

This means you can get a great deal on furniture every day of the year by taking advantage of these promotions.

If you shop before the big holiday sales, you will have a better selection of inventory. Here are some more benefits of shopping before the holidays:

  • Stores are less crowded.
  • You’ll receive better customer service.
  • Delivery schedules have more availability.

You can also shop on the day of or after the holidays and get the same special pricing. Many companies have a low-price guarantee that ensures you get the best price.

When to Get Approved for Financing

It’s a good idea to get approved for financing before you bring your loved one to the store.

At La-Z-Boy, you can apply for financing online and receive an immediate response regarding your new credit line.

This way they won’t have to wait for you to apply in-store. Or make compromises if your budget is lower than expected.

How to Wrap & Present Your Gift

Wrapping a sofa, sectional, or recliner is quite the challenge. Thankfully, you can reveal your gift in an easier way and let our full-service delivery team handle the rest.

In the past, our customers have used a letter to share the good news. This is often in the form of a holiday card or handwritten note.

If you’d like to reveal your gift in a more unique way, check out some of these ideas from RedBalloon:

  • The Hunt: Give your loved one a clue with each one leading to another. Make the clues riddles or inside jokes only the two of you know. The last clue will reveal their Christmas gift of brand new furniture.
  • The Fake-Out: Use creative packaging to make your gift look like something completely different. For example, you can put a note inside a wine bottle. Or use a huge box to conceal a note revealing their new furniture.
  • The Trojan Horse: Give a gift you know he or she wants then hide a note inside it. A good example would be a book with a handwritten message inside the front cover.

Feel free to have fun with the presentation of this gift. And look forward to the excited look on their face when they hear about their new furniture.

Have a Wonderful Christmas

We hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy your time together.

Giving the gift of style and comfort through new furniture is a thoughtful way to show your love this holiday season. And the La-Z-Boy Interior Design Program makes it fun and easy.

They’d be happy to help you give the gift of new furniture at any of our locations in NC, SC, or GA.
