Trying to find gifts for new homeowners can be difficult. The minute you open that housewarming party invitation or the holidays are approaching, your mind starts racing as to what to get your new homeowner friends. You don’t want to get something tacky. You also don’t want to get something that will be seen as clutter in their new home.
The best option is to get thoughtful gifts for new homeowners. Get them something that they will actually use as new homeowners, something that will make their home cozy. I’ve put together a guide to thoughtful gifts for new homeowners to take the stress off of gift shopping.
If your new homeowner friends or family bought their home during the holiday season, a personalized ornament is a great gift! Have their new address and the year engraved on the ornament to commemorate their very first holiday in their new home. Every year when they take it out, they will always think of you.
Magnetic Key Holder
Keys get lost, especially single new keys to a new home. Help the new homeowners keep track of their new house keys with a magnetic key holder they can hang up right by the door. No more worrying about getting locked out or dropping keys while trying to hang them up. This is one of the most thoughtful and convenient gifts for new homeowners.
Help the new homeowners upgrade their home and take it into the future with smart speakers like Amazon’s Echo, Google Home, or Apple HomePod. With multiple speakers, they can play music throughout the house, activate smart appliances, and ask for the weather with just their voice.
Smart Light Bulbs
Maybe the new homeowners already have smart speakers. Then the next best gifts for new homeowners are smart light bulbs that they can connect with their smart speakers. With just their voice they can control the lighting in their home and even change the color of the lighting. Their home will feel futuristic and advanced.
Help the new homeowners make a good first impression with a personalized doormat. Have the family name or a favorite phrase put on the doormat. It’s a simple, yet thoughtful gift that will warm their hearts.
It’s been said that people who have plants in their house are happier. However, plants can be hard to take care of, especially if you are always on the move. So, increase the new homeowners’ happiness without being a burden by gifting a self-watering plant.
Small Kitchen Appliance
If you know that the new homeowners love to spend time in the kitchen and have even moved to a home with a larger kitchen then they previously had gift them a small kitchen appliance. A new trendy appliance such as an Airfryer, Nutribullet, or Instant Pot make for some great thoughtful gifts for new homeowners.
It’s safe to say that the new homeowners have some plans for their new house. They may need to buy new décor or have renovations they would like to start. Help them out by giving gift cards to hardware stores like Lowes and Home Depot, or decorative stores like Pier One or Home Goods.
