#ComingHome – Hive’s Heartwarming Home Coming Moments
As hard as it can be to say goodbye to friends and family when they embark on a long journey, it makes their welcome home all the more heart-warming and special. Which is why Hive, the creators of the gadget that lets people control heating and hot water from their phones, have launched a campaign to celebrate the blissful moment of #ComingHome.
Hive understand the magical feeling we all get when we step through that door and have captured those special coming home moments in their new two part film series, the first of which has just aired and you can see it below:
Because Hive are all about coming back to a warm and inviting home, they want to celebrate that feeling with the launch of a great new Competition. Hive are asking you to share your home coming moments or wishes, or to nominate someone who you think deserves a special #ComingHome moment.
If watching the film made you feel inspired to surprise a loved one with a home coming to remember, simply tell Hive who in your life deserves an amazing home coming moment worth £1,500 (check out the Terms and Conditions here).
And there’s a Coming Home £50 Hamper up for grabs too!
To celebrate the launch of the main competition, Hive have partnered with Tidy Away Today on a mini-competition to offer one lucky person the chance to win a lovely ‘Coming Home’ hamper of goodies worth £50 including Oliver Bonas candles, deluxe hot chocolate and even more gorgeous treats. To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me a bit about your favourite home coming moment. This mini-comp will close at noon on 1st April 2015 and we will select a favourite comment soon after.
The #ComingHome campaign has really got me thinking about those special touches that can make a home coming even more warm and welcoming. How nice it would be to return not only to a warm house, but a delicious home-cooked meal, such as a comforting casserole simmering away in the oven, a fridge stocked with all essentials such as milk, butter and bread so you wouldn’t need to dash out to the shops. Maybe some cosy slippers too and luxuriously scented bubble bath for a bit of pampering!
I wanted to put together a mood board of ideas for some lovely homeware items that would certainly give a warm welcome to anyone who has just returned home from a long journey or perhaps a stay in hospital. The sight of some familiar flowers and a glass of bubbly I’m sure would be very welcome! And not only are pineapples very fashionable right now, they are historically a traditional sign of welcome.
I hope that has inspired you a little to think about how you can make someone’s home coming happy and memorable. And don’t forget to nominate someone you think deserves their own special #ComingHome moment from Hive. I’ll be following this campaign with interest!
