Stumped about what to give friends who are also new homeowners? You have an unlimited array of housewarming gifts to choose from. For one, why not get them a settlement hamper, a potted plant, or a basket stuffed with home fragrance products? Celebrate the purchase of a new home with the following unique settlement gift ideas.
Unique Gift Ideas for the New Home Buyer
Basic home repair toolbox
A basic home repair toolbox will come in handy sooner or later and is something that every house should have. A basic toolbox with a hammer, screws, and nails, measuring tape, and a screwdriver set is something that new homeowners will need as they settle down and start making improvements to their new home. Other equally practical options include a basic home safety or security box filled with products that can help new homeowners feel secure in their new home.
A live potted plant
There’s no better way to add life to a new home than with a potted plant. Opt for plants that double as air purifiers, like the snake plant or a potted aloe vera. Other suitable plants that do well as housewarming gifts include the peace lily, English ivy and the spider plant. Potted plants help brighten any room and are gifts that can grow with the house and the people living there.
Celebratory settlement hamper
Celebratory wine and cheese hampers are the perfect gifts to celebrate a new house. They’re perfect gifts during housewarming parties because they are ready to be shared and enjoyed. The good thing about wine and cheese baskets is that you can order different sizes and flavors to suit the preferences of the new homeowners. You’re not limited to wine and cheeses when choosing a settlement hamper. You can choose from a wide variety of settlement hampers from gourmet baskets to hampers of luxury toiletries, home decor, and home fragrance hampers, to name a few.
Personalized key and trinket bowl
A customized handmade key bowl is a thoughtful and practical gift that helps welcome new homeowners to their new homes. Trinket bowls may seem decorative, but they can help minimize clutter by serving as attractive containers for the small items that homeowners use on a daily basis. Key bowls can be placed on the console table by the door so that the homeowners’ keys, spare coins and key fobs are within easy reach as they head out the door.
Basic coffee kit
Every home can use a small coffee corner where everything you need to brew a cup of coffee is within easy reach. You can put together a coffee box filled with a French press, a bag of beans, and a mug for an affordable but thoughtful gift that your friends can start using right away. If you can afford something pricier, a home espresso machine can make for a great home settlement gift. For some people, the smell of freshly brewed coffee is one of the things that make a house a home and you can make that happen with a coffee kit.
Customized welcome mat
Homes with customized welcome mats always appear warm and inviting even before you step inside. They also serve a practical purpose by removing dirt and moisture from shoes, keeping indoor spaces clean and free from dirt and mud. Opt for mats made of natural fibers. These are easy to clean and will degrade naturally over time. You can have the mats customized with the family name of the homeowners for a unique gift.
Buying a new house is something that is worth celebrating. If you have friends who are new homeowners you can celebrate with them with these unique and thoughtful gifts.
