Housewarming Gifts for the New Home Owner

Your friend or relation has just bought a new pad. A house-warming present is in order! Flowers and candles are so over-done, dish towels and plants are blasé, and choosing a major piece of home decor can totally infringe on their interior design. Let us take the mystery out of what to buy, with this list of innovative gifts that will make them feel at home.

A Sweet Pair of Speakers

This probably isn’t the best housewarming gift for your in-laws (unless they’re hip to that sort of thing), but for your brother/sister/cousin it could be the offering that makes you their new favorite. Pick wireless speakers (because who needs wires?) that give top notch sound quality. This Bose portable SoundDock will let the new home owner pump up the jams indoors and out.

A Fresh Start

Moving in is a messy process. From boxes to packing peanuts and dust and dirt left over from past occupants, the list is long. Gift the new homeowner in your life with a four-star cleaning service. They’ll be more than thankful for it.

A Leg Up With the Lawn

Your bestie is absolutely in love with her new home. The lawn is another story. Give her a leg up with a visit from an organic lawn care service.  They’ll give her lawn a new life the eco-friendly way.

A Pretty Paint Job

After a big move, no homeowner is all that jazzed to repaint the interior of their house. So give them the gift of painters. This is a great pick for older relatives who are past their DIY days, or friends with kids who can’t find the time to invest in a huge project.

A Little Bit of Bubbly Makes a Great Housewarming Gift

We’re not talking about a bottle of champagne — that only lasts for one sitting. But a sparkling water machine is the gift that keeps on giving. It’s a cool way to bring older relatives into the technological age and a smart gift for the bachelor who loves to entertain. Its reusable bottles make it a money saver — a bonus anyone can appreciate.
