In the beginning, finances can be very tight for most new homeowners and many of us already know and can sympathize with new homeowners about what a financial toll buying a new home can take. Between down payments and moving expenses your financial funds can go fast. So buying the new homeowner the perfect housewarming gift will help them out tremendously.
A home warranty is one of the best gifts for any homeowner to receive. I can't begin to tell you the list of things that can and probably will go wrong with a home. For some new homeowners, this can mean financial hardships. Therefore, a home warranty can be the perfect gift. There are several home warranty companies on the market with warranties ranging from $400 to $600 a year. Some warranty companies offer a monthly option that you can pay on for a few months then the homeowner can renew the policy if they wish, taking over the payments.
Gift cards are also great gifts for the new homeowner. Think about what the new homeowner can use gift cards for and buy appropriately. They will probably need things like household items, tools, etc. so gift cards to places like Home Depot, Lowe's, Wal-Mart, and Bed Bath & Beyond are great ideas. Electronic store gift cards may not be such a great idea.
Another great gift idea is a gift basket. This can be a traditional gift with a twist. Fill the basket with useful household items such as cleaners, linens, tools, utensils, etc. You can do a one for all basket or themed baskets. A themed basket, for instance, can be themed for cleaning, so include items such as laundry detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, linen spray and other laundry items.
Don't let anyone tell you that housewarming gifts are a thing of the past. These gift ideas that I've mentioned are sure to please any new homeowner.
