Seven Gifts New Homeowners Will Love to Receive

The holiday season is a time of joy, celebration and sharing. If you know someone who has recently become a new homeowner, there’s no better time to spread holiday cheer by gifting them something special for their new Cornerstone Community home. Moving into a new house is a significant milestone, and the right gift can help them settle in and create a warm, welcoming space.

Welcome basket. Fill a basket with essentials like snacks, a bottle of wine, toilet paper and cleaning supplies. This thoughtful gesture will make them feel right at home in their new space and provide them with conveniences they may need on the very first day.

Personalized wall art. Decorating their new home is a top priority for new homeowners. Personalized wall art, such as a custom map of their new neighborhood or a framed photo of a memorable moment, will help them add a personal touch to their walls.

A welcome book. Put together a welcome book filled with local recommendations from the best coffee shop in the neighborhood to the nearest hardware store. Include maps, restaurant menus and contact information to help them settle in seamlessly.

DIY home improvement books. For the DIY-er, help them unleash their inner DIY enthusiast with books on home improvement and renovation. These books can be a valuable resource, so look for books that cover a range of topics from basic repairs to more ambitious projects.

A housewarming party kit. Let them celebrate their new home with a housewarming party kit. Pack it with party supplies like balloons, banners and disposable dinnerware. This kit will make hosting their first gathering a breeze. Read our blog about throwing yourself a housewarming party.

Plants for the garden. If the new homeowner has outdoor space, consider gifting a potted fruit tree, a shrub or a small herb garden. These gifts will not only beautify their garden but also provide them with fresh produce and spices.

Housecleaning service. Moving into a new home can be overwhelming, and cleaning is often the last thing on the homeowner’s mind but the first thing to do. Gift them a one-time or recurring cleaning service to take the stress out of cleaning their new space.
