Raise your hand if you know someone who bought a home this year. The real estate market is hot, and it’s quite likely that someone on your shopping list is a new homeowner. What better way to celebrate their accomplishment than getting them a holiday gift for their new home? Here are some of our favorite gifts for new homeowners this year.
Return address stamp
Buying a home gives you a sense of permanence in an otherwise impermanent world. You can help celebrate that by having it carved in stone – or at least rubber. A personalized rubber return address stamp is the perfect gift for a new homeowner. Not only does it reinforce their pride of ownership, but it also keeps them from having to write their new address over and over again.
Gardening has emerged as one of America’s favorite new hobbies because of the pandemic. New homeowners can get a jumpstart on the trend with a new plant. Plants instantly help a home feel cozier, and many of them help to clean the air. Another great option is to give them an indoor herb gardening kit so that they can have fresh herbs for cooking at their fingertips.
A painting of their new house
For a truly awe-inspiring gift, you can commission an artist to create a painting of their new house. This is a special way to commemorate their achievement and is something they can cherish for a lifetime, long after they move out of the home. There are many artists who specialize in this kind of gift, and you’re sure to find one that fits your budget and your gift recipient’s style.
Who doesn’t love to have fresh flowers in their home? Having a bouquet of beautiful flowers can instantly make a house feel like a home. But you can up the ante by giving a flower subscription that will deliver fresh flowers to your loved one’s home on a monthly basis. This is definitely one of those gifts that keeps on giving!
When giving a gift to a new homeowner, it’s fun to give them things that they might not otherwise splurge on for themselves. That’s why a gift of a deluxe candle set can be so appreciated. We have to admit, there is something about burning an expensive candle that feels luxurious and decadent. So go ahead and spoil that new homeowner with a candle or two in their favorite scents!
Are you having trouble deciding just what to get the new homeowner on your list? Then a gift card may be the perfect answer. While some may worry that a gift card is too impersonal or generic, they can be very much appreciated by the recipient. There are so many unexpected expenses when moving into a new home, and having gift cards can help soften the blow. Consider giving gift cards to popular online retailers, home improvement stores, nearby restaurants that offer delivery or takeout, or even their local grocery store.
