Things to Buy Before Moving in Together: Home Goods

Why are people so afraid of commitment?! It’s the fear of missing out or FOMO. FOMO is real! And it can sometimes make you want to hurl yourself into a long term relationship without really thinking about what you’re doing. But before you sign up for another 2 years of Netflix and chill with your boo, there are some things that need to be checked off your list first. This handy guide will walk you through which items on your home wish list belong in the “relationship maybe” category and which ones go under ‘must have’.

*Woven tasseled blanket

You’ll see this woven tasseled blanket appear on everyone else’s holiday gift guides so better get one now while they’re still affordable. It’s really a myth that you have to sleep with a blanket between you and your bae in order to get a good night’s rest. It’s all about having the right blanket! And if it happens to come with tassels, then why not?

*Dinnerware set from Anthropologie

A romantic night in calls for proper place settings. Whether you’re making spaghetti or ordering Thai food, this dinnerware set is sure to elevate any date night at home. The neutral colors also go well with other pieces in your collection so it won’t be too matchy matchy when paired with your weird little mug collection.

*Round bedside table

This round bedside table immediately adds warmth and texture to your bedroom. It creates the illusion that you live in a log cabin or like Mia from The Princess Diaries (you can never be too sure). And who says it has to go next to your bed? It’s great for adding space and clutter free beauty in front of a small living room window and if your boo is still sleeping on the couch, this will make your new side by side arrangement look like an upgrade.

*Ceramic elephant

Just when you thought jewelry boxes were uncreative, here comes along something much better! An elephant ceramic container is both elegant and functional. It also works as a great storage piece for blankets or sweaters. You can keep all of your winter gear tucked away until colder months arrive and you can’t bear doing laundry another day.

*Bamboo cutting board with brushed stainless steel frame

No one likes a dull kitchen and this bamboo cutting board with stainless steel frame will liven up any space! It’s also multipurpose and not just limited to the kitchen area. This makes for a great alternative to a fruit bowl if you’re looking for something that goes beyond the traditional table setting.  The wire frame is perfect for holding dried flowers or even votive candle holders. The possibilities are endless!

*Eames inspired rocking chair

It’s always good to keep your options open so why not invest in an Eames inspired rocker? Whenever he starts getting on your nerves, you can easily hide out in here until he grows up a bit or until your friend’s bachelorette party rolls around. The plush cushions will keep you cozy and comfortable for hours at a time.

*Floor length geometric mirror

Not only is this floor length geometric mirror an absolute essential, it’s also the definition of timeless. It can be used to help accessorize any room from the entryway to the bathroom if your boo doesn’t mind sharing his space with all of your stuff (and you’re okay with him not doing sexy shower dances in there). This design will never go out of style so invest while the price is still affordable!
