The Ultimate Gift Guide For New Homeowners
With the holidays upon us, many people are putting together their shopping lists for friends and loved ones, but it can be tough to figure out what to buy for certain people on your list. You may have a limited budget, or you might just have a few folks on your list who are especially difficult to shop for. Whatever the case may be, it’s important to make your holiday to-do list as easy as possible to get through in order to eliminate stress.
One of the easiest ways to do this is to think about what your recipient might want or need. For new homeowners, this list can be a mile long, but it can be fun to come up with ideas. The gift doesn’t have to be a physical item; it might be a service, such as volunteering to help them paint or do yard work.
Here are some of the best gift ideas for new homeowners when a gift card just won’t do.
Holiday-themed gifts--Since your loved ones are new homeowners, they might appreciate a gift that’s holiday themed, such as a new Christmas tree or some lovely ornaments. You might even seek out a handmade ornament that’s personalized, so that they can commemorate moving into their new home every year when they hang it on the tree. You can find tons of beautiful ideas on Etsy.com.
Reader’s delight--If your loved ones have just moved to a new city, help them acclimate by buying a subscription to a local magazine. This way they’ll be able to find all the best local hotspots and learn a bit about their new town at the same time.
Gift basket--Gift baskets are the perfect way to personalize a present yet keep it vague enough for anyone to enjoy. Get some cute mugs, delicious ground coffee and tea bags, breakfast pastries from a local bakery, and kitchen accessories such as potholders and tea towels and place them in a nice basket. Any new homeowner would love a gift that includes everything the need for a lovely breakfast.
Think services--You don’t have to spend a ton of money on a gift; a service will be just as appreciated. Ask your loved ones what they need and offer to help; you might come over and assist with painting the living room, putting together furniture, hanging out to take care of deliveries while they run errands or go to work, or paying for dog walking, boarding or day care services to eliminate the added stress of pup care. This type of gift is immeasurable and will help out the recipient immensely.
A personal assistant--Sometimes the best gifts are the ones that are most helpful. Consider letting technology help you out by buying your loved ones a personal assistant from Amazon. Choose from Alexa or Echo, which will help any new homeowner get organized and stay on task.
Get creative--Help your loved ones remember their home forever by giving them the gift of art. You can commission a painting or illustration of the new pad and have it framed for a very reasonable price. Head to Minted.com for details.
Help them entertain--Many new homeowners want to show off their purchase and entertain guests, but that can be difficult without the right tools. Find a set of chic stemless wine glasses or dessert plates and help them plan a fun dinner party.
Finding the perfect gift can be stressful, but by thinking outside the box a bit, you can keep stress at bay this holiday season. Use these ideas to help your loved ones make their new house a home.
