Being a new homeowner can be exciting, overwhelming, and terrifying all at the same time! With this new homeowner gift list guide, you can be sure you’re gifting a useful item they actually NEED to make their NEW home feel like a functioning home.
This post is all about 23 USEFUL gifts every new homeowner needs.
If you’re attending a housewarming party soon, it’s important to find a practical gift that new homeowners find useful and essential to building their new nest.
Newbie homeowners are often bombarded with gift baskets or knick-knacks that just tend to fill up a drawer. BTW, gift baskets are awesome and always appreciated. But sometimes, the money spent on the knick-knack or basket could have (possibly) gone towards something more needed from their checklist.
While buying a new home is a huge accomplishment and a blessing, it also comes with extra expenses that weren’t always anticipated.
And it’s expensive to make a home feel like a functioning place to live, which is why this useful, essential, and practical gift list guide for new homeowners was invented!
These must-have gift items will help the new homeowner feel more at home, which is the whole point to gifting a housewarming item, right?
Anyway, let’s dive into the list and see which item will be the perfect gift for the new homeowner or owners!
23 New Homeowner GIFT IDEAS they are guaranteed to LOVE
1. DITCH THE RING
All new homeowners need a security system to deter break-ins. You’ve probably heard of the Ring Security System, and you might even be a Ring user.
But here’s a couple of reasons why you shouldn’t gift the Ring.
ONE, no one wants to pay a monthly fee to view their security content, and TWO, there’s a system out there that consumers are swearing is more effective and reliant.
