5 Housewarming Gifts Any new Homeowner will appreciate


The expensive bottle of wine with the most expensive bottle opener is definitely a great gift. However, to me, why not give a new homeowner something that will be definitely useful to them longterm. Here are my 5 Housewarming Gifts that any new homeowner in my opinion will greatly appreciate.

1. Take Out Menu Organizer

The Takeout Menu Organizer from Knock Knock is a great gift. Who cooks every night anyway? This binder includes handy meal-rating stickers, tipping guide, helpful ordering advice, frequently called numbers list, and so much more. If you want to skip purchasing an already made binder like this one, why not take the time to drive around the neighborhood, collect menus and create your own binder by section to give as a housewarming gift

2. Custom Address Stamp

This will come in handy and very much appreciated.  Although I know most of us pay our bills online and hardly stop at the post office, we still have the cute Holiday cards to send out right? So why not give a custom made address stamp as a housewarming gift? This one is from Personalization Mall Very cute!

3. Toolbox Gift Basket

New apartment, new house, to me a tool box basket like this one is a great idea.  Include a flash lights, extra light bulbs, painter's paint and more. There will always be that "project" that a new homeowner will try to do and these tools will come in handy.

4. First Aid Kit

I received a lot of First Aid Kits at my baby showers.  Sure, totally makes sense to have when you have kids in the home.  But what about us adults? We could use some care too after hurting ourselves cutting the onions while cooking! Unless driving to the ER could be a solution, Home First Aid Kit to me is a great Housewarming gift.  Same as the Menu Binder, you can choose to create your own and shop the aisles of your favorite drug store or you can purchase already made Kits. This one is from The Container Store.

5. Netted Soap Saver

I  really like this item. Who does not like to save? In fact, new homeowners will want to do just that! I know it is just soap but expenses add up and every penny counts.  You can get the most out of the soap bar with this. It is a nylon mesh pouch with a locking satin drawstring closure. When you shower or bathe, the Netted Soap Saver creates a lush lather from the remnants of soap that would have otherwise been too small to use. And it gently exfoliates the skin. Find it at The Container Store
