5 Gift Ideas For The New Homeowner

5 Gift Ideas For The New Homeowner

If you’re looking for a gift for a friend or family member who has just moved in to a new home, then it may be tempting to go for a potted plant, or the typical ‘Home Sweet Home’ hanging sign – and whilst there is nothing really wrong with either of these, there are only so many you can have up in one house!

So, think outside the box and get this homeowner a gift they will really cherish, for the duration of the many happy years to come in their new home. But if you’re not sure what to buy, then here are a few gift ideas for her and/or him to give you some food for thought:

  1. Something Helpful

A new homeowner is bound to be thinking about how they are going to decorate their house! We spend years living in our parent’s home or rented accommodation – where we have little opportunity to be creative when it comes to the way it looks – and we are always daydreaming of how we might choose to decorate our first home. But when the time does come it can be difficult to know where to actually start.

So, why not get the owner of this house a magazine subscription? You could sign them up to an interior design magazine which will mean inspiration comes straight to their doorstep every month over the first year.

  1. Something Practical

Whilst a new hoover, a microwave, or an iron might not be the most exciting present in the world, they are incredibly practical gifts for a new homeowner. Just make sure you do a little digging to find out what they really need. Again, no one needs five irons – but if they are planning to get one anyway they will be very grateful to you for saving them the trouble.

  1. Something Unique

We guarantee they fall instantly in love with your gift if you buy them something unique to them and their home. Take a look at the ‘new home’ section on notonthehighstreet.com, where you will find all sorts of inspiration, from personalised prints for the wall and pillows for the sofa to quirky accessories for both the house and garden.

  1. Something Tasty

Moving house is one of the most stressful things we can do in our lifetimes, and whilst the stress may subside once you have moved in, it won’t disappear altogether straight away. There is still a lot to think about and even more to do. So, why not provide this homeowner with a tasty treat, so they can have one less thing on their mind?

This could be vouchers for a takeaway to use when they don’t want to cook (or while the kitchen is being decorated), home baked goodies or a subscription to food and/or drink service – which could be anything from wine to a recipe box. You could even create your own hamper and fill it with their favourite treats!

  1. Something Fun

You could, of course, just get something fun for the new home – how about this doormat that reads ‘Come In If You Have Prosecco’ or a cocktail making kit ready for the housewarming party!?
