Christmas Gift for New Homeowner

Real Estate Agent with Right at Home Realty Inc., Brokerage

A good idea for a Christmas gift or a gift from a Realtor® for a new homeowner is a basic tool kit.

A number of basic tools are a must; a metal hammer, screwdrivers with a variety of heads, a small saw, electric drill, adjustable wrench, pliers and measuring stick. Sandpaper and an assortment of screws and nails are also very handy. These tools will help with simple repairs such as tightening drawer handles, adjusting a door, installing a lock, hammering a nail that is sticking out etc.

Not only is this a great gift but they will surely need access to tools when breaking down and setting up furniture during their move or hanging pictures.  Usually, garage type items are not easy to located during a move.  Having this gift will be at their fingertips and a great time saver.  Great idea.

It's a wonderful idea and very practical! Kinda one of those... "why didn't I think of that?" Thanks Gail.

I think it is a great gift but I am afraid if I gave some of my first time home buyers a hammer they would hit themselves in the head with it.  Dangerous bunch.

That's a great gift idea Gail.  I'm not sure that I would have thought of it but it makes perfect sense for a new homeowner.  Whether they are moving into a condo or home, the tool kit is probably something that will come in very handy without breaking the bank.  Thanks for the tip!
