Here in the T-County, spring is a big home buying season. If you know someone who is purchasing a home in the next few months, you might be in the market for the ideal housewarming gift for the first-time or veteran home owner. These gifts can range from the classic to the trendy and unique, and even include some local choices.
Customized gifts are a great option, and Internet shopping has made these choices more varied and unique than ever. Custom embossers and stamps for personalizing outgoing mail are readily available online. This is an especially nice choice for a newlywed couple, as the embosser or stamp can be created to include the names of both individuals as well as a decorative picture or interesting outline. Custom keychains can be ordered that feature a picture of your friend’s new home. Such items add a great personal touch while being inexpensive to order.
For the eco-conscious friend, a Green Cleaning Kit is the perfect gift. Pair environmentally-friendly cleaning supplies like baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and distilled white vinegar with microfiber dusting cloths and a tarpon natural sponge. Include a reusable spray bottle that is BPA free, and your kit is complete!
While this option may seem obvious, gift cards can include anything from a restaurant meal or grocery card to home décor or home improvement stores for the purchase of practical items like tools and kitchen towels. Gift cards are also available from local cleaning or yard service companies–welcome help for any new home owner trying to get everything in order.
Don’t underestimate a classic gift such as a good book. Home improvement titles, a coffee table topper, even a new address book or a tips-and-tricks guide for around-the-house repairs can make for a practical and thoughtful gift for any home owner. For an extra special touch, place a personalized book plate inside the book. These can be purchased or printed for very little cost using online templates.
Lastly, a unique gift from a local shop can be the perfect touch in congratulating a friend or neighbor on their new home. A bottle of wine from the School House Winery, a bottle of fresh olive oil from OV Harvest or a selection of freshly ground coffee beans from The Daily Grind are perfect as stand-alone gifts or combined into a creative gift basket. Freshly baked bread, cupcakes or cookies from a local bakery can also be a nice choice. This gift is also a way to introduce new neighbors to the local offerings they most likely aren’t aware of yet.
