While 2020 put a halt to weddings and graduations, it did not stop prospective homeowners from purchasing homes. In fact, according to the National Association of Realtors®, home sales have continuously climbed in the second half of 2020.
Unfortunately, for these new home buyers, having a celebratory housewarming party may not be in the cards this year. Now, just because there isn’t a party, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t send a housewarming gift.
We’ve put together eight excellent housewarming gift ideas that can be ordered online and shipped directly to their new home.
Let’s check them out!
Personalized Home Décor
One of the most exciting things about a new home is decorating the empty space. Send the new homeowners a stylish home décor piece that will commemorate their new home. We love the idea of personalized home décor gifts, such as this personalized Welcome to Our Home wall sign, personalized Our First Home Coordinates wall sign or this personalized Our First Home picture frame can be customized with the homeowner’s name and new address.
A Live Tree
Give the new homeowners a literal meaning to planting roots! A live tree can make an excellent housewarming gift for home buyers with a yard. Online nurseries, such as The Tree Center, can help you find a tree that is right for their location and climate. Best yet, you can have the tree delivered directly to their new home!
Engraved Cutting Board
Looking for a housewarming gift that is thoughtful, yet also practical? Consider a personalized cutting board. With many different wood types, sizes and designs, you are sure to find a cutting board that will be perfect for the new homeowners. We recommend this personalized Our First Home maple cutting board or this engraved Home Sweet Home walnut cutting board.
Even though they won’t be hosting a dinner party in their new home quite yet, prepare the new homeowners with monogrammed linens. Monogrammed coasters, linen dinner napkins, embroidered tea towels make simple, yet classy gifts that they can use year after year.
Personalized Address Stamper
A custom address stamper is a practical gift that’s also fun! Choose from several designs, shapes and styles and personalize with the homeowner’s name and new address. They’ll surely appreciate this housewarming gift when it comes time to send holiday cards!
Nothing says “Cheers to your new home” as much as personalized champagne glasses! Encourage the new homeowners to celebrate by sending them a set of drinkware. Depending on their drink preference, you can send them monogrammed wine glasses, engraved beer mugs or even personalized stainless steel tumblers!
A Doorbell Security Camera
Help protect their new home with a doorbell security camera, such as the Ring Doorbell. Not only will this gift help keep their home secure, it will also alert the homeowners when someone is at their door. Its video and speaker system enables homeowners to see and communicate with visitors without opening the door.
If there’s one thing that 2020 has taught us, it is not to take for granted everyday essentials. So, if you’re a practical gift giver, consider sending the new homeowners must-have supplies such as toilet paper, paper towels, disinfectant wipes, laundry detergent, hand soap and other necessities. You can order and ship these items directly to the homeowners on major retailers’ websites such as Amazon, Target or Walmart.
