A young couple making the leap from apartment dweller to homeowner may not have the budget to get everything on their list. You can help fill in the blanks with a thoughtful housewarming gift they’ll actually want. Here are a few ideas.
Nothing sets the tone for a new home like the welcome mat. It’s a necessary item and something a couple doesn’t think about needing, at least until the first rain or snow.
A welcome mat is a simple, inexpensive present that won’t break your budget. Choose from funny sayings or show off a couple’s interests or favorite pet. Go for colors you know they love. The options are endless and so are the price points.
Protect the Investment
Let the new homeowners enjoy a better way to feel at home with a security camera system. It’s a sleek high-end present to help the couple protect their exciting new investment. Smart home systems and cameras allow the couple visual access to areas they may not be able to view otherwise.
From watching the kids in the yard to making sure the dog doesn’t dig up the daisies (again) or keeping a general eye on things, a security camera system is a gift that keeps on giving.
Add Some Green
Help a new homeowner add a personal touch with a new plant. Low-maintenance plants like spider plants, succulents or ferns add a pop of green and needed texture to any space. Best of all, they require minimal watering, so even an inexperienced plant owner can handle this one.
You can keep it simple and opt for a plant in a nice pot for $10 and under or go big (literally) with an established floor plant. Your local nursery will offer plenty of choices.
New homeowners may lack the necessities to fix the most basic of repairs or hang a shelf on the wall, and tools can be expensive. Surprise new homeowners with a toolbox you’ve packed with the essentials.
Add in a hammer, screwdrivers (Philip and Flathead), plus a drill and drill bits. Don’t forget a measuring tape and a 12-inch adjustable pipe wrench. Throw in a work light and clamps for extra bonus points.
Moving is exhausting. Give the couple a reason to relax with an irresistible new throw. Choose a soft and cuddly faux fur, chenille or velvet throw to take the chill off any evening.
You are sure to find something that looks good, feels great and will be a beautiful addition to any overstuffed chair or living room sofa.
Home Air Purifiers
Air filtration systems run the range. Choose a small air purifier to cover a single room, like a bedroom, living room or bathroom, or go all out with a whole-house model.
Housewarming Gifts They’ll Love
Whether you decide to give the couple a toolbox, a plant to liven up the space or the type of stress relief only a security camera can provide, you’re sure to brighten the day (and home) of any new homeowner. Add a personal note for that extra special touch.
