If you need some ideas, we have put together a few that will be perfect for just about anyone moving into their new home.
Restaurant Gift Card for Delivery
When trying to get moved and settled in, cooking is usually the last thing on their mind. You can make life just a bit easier on them by getting them a gift card to a local restaurant or pizza place that delivers.
Candles always create feelings of a warm and cozy home. You can find candles in many different shapes, sizes and scents. Be sure that you add a lighter or matches with the candle. When people move, things like that could be difficult to find during a move.
Freshly Baked Goodies
Anything can be made better with some freshly baked goodies and moving is no exception. If you love to bake, you can whip up something for them. If not, a local bakery will have plenty of goodies. To make it even more special, if they had a favorite bakery where they used to live, grab something from there.
Flowers And Vase
A colorful bouquet of fresh flowers in a new decorative vase can really brighten up their new place. They will have a pretty vase that they can use long after the flowers have died. Did you know that flowers can relieve the stress that moving helps to create.
A Potted Plant
Plants will last longer than flowers so a green plant can enhance the natural decor of a home, especially when it’s in a pot that matches the decor. You may want to get a low maintenance plant if you aren’t sure of their ability to care for plants. Succulents and snake plants are two great choices for plants that don’t need a lot of care.
Food Storage Containers
What better time to get organized. You can present them with some good quality storage containers that they can use to hold food to keep their pantry and cabinets organized. You don’t have to worry that they might already have some storage container sets because you can’t have too many.
A Blanket or Bed Sheet Set
They will love curling up under a beautiful soft and cozy blanket. You can find a huge variety of blankets that have thousands of themes that you can choose from. If you don’t know what color their bedroom or home is going to be, just go with something neutral. You could get them a sheet set to go along with it that has pillowcases with it.
A Welcome Mat
Every home needs a beautiful welcome mat to invite friends and family inside. You can get one personalized or get it with a fun saying on it.
A new tool kit is very useful, especially for new homeowners. You can buy a nice tool chest and add a hammer, a screwdriver set, pliers, wrenches, measuring tape and assorted nails and screws. You can add more to it if you’d like, say for instance, a flashlight and level.
A Spa Gift Card
After the stress of moving and to help with the body aches, why not get them a trip to the local spa. Be sure to add the tip to the gift card so they don’t have to worry about a thing.
The best gift ideas for new homeowners are practical and sentimental. Be sure that the gift you give fits their personality and is useful. Moving into a new home is a memorable experience and when you give a gift, they will remember your thoughtfulness for years to come.
