3 Great Gift Ideas for a New Homeownerby Maggie Bloom Freelance Writer
Coming up with the ideal housewarming gift for a new homeowner can be challenging. Of course, it isn't rocket science, but still, there are several things to consider. Do you buy them a gift you love or one that is different from your own aesthetic? You have tons of options to choose from, and when it comes right down to it, there are no hard rules when buying a gift for a new homeowner. So relax, and allow our shopping pros to suggest a few ideas that will go over well.
1. Living Plant
We're not talking about the humble spider plant. Instead, gift your new homeowner with a living tree plant such as the striking Pachira Aquatica, otherwise known as the money tree.
It's considered a "lucky" tree and unique with its braided trunk and glossy, hand-shaped leaves. Money trees make for lovely indoor home accents, but believe it or not, these babies can attain a height of 30 feet when planted outside.
Did you know that the money tree is the ultimate plant for the "Feng Shui" arrangement?
It's because it creates positive energy, and every home could use an abundance of that.
The plant thrives in full sunlight, so have your recipient place it in a spot near a bright window facing north or south to ensure that it receives full sunlight all day.
2. Wall Decor
Here's another excellent idea for the new homeowner when you're trying to come up with a fabulous gift.
No matter the size of the home, there will be plenty of walls to decorate and accentuate with something attractive and useful. Our seasoned shopper suggests a gorgeous wall clock for the new homeowner.
Let's face it; we may be living in a digital world, but every home benefits by having a unique, eye-catching wall clock or two such as Anton Schneider Cuckoo Clocks.
These Bavarian timepieces never go out of style, and the hand-carved workmanship adds beauty and detail to any home's interior.
Here are some tips about decorating with clocks: The experts recommend beginning at eye level when deciding where to hang your wall clock. Also, keep your clock comfortably in view throughout the day.
It's best to leave about four to six inches of space between your clock and any surrounding furniture, other art, or lighting.
Another chic wall decor that looks nice with a clock hanging in the center can include paintings, photographs, frames, or abstract wall art. Or if you prefer minimalism, then allow the clock to hang alone on a wall to be the centerpiece of attraction.
3. Aromatic Accents
Nothing is finer than a new home that boasts a pleasant fragrance, and you have a lot of items to choose from when it comes to aroma and your interior space.
Most new owners would appreciate a wonderful fragrance for their home because it sets the tone for the interior surroundings, and you can gift them with an assortment of candles or go a few steps further.
You could buy soy-based candles in glass containers or a collection of pretty beeswax spiral tapers that smell heavenly and feature a simple, sculptural design.
You could also consider a box of smokeless incense that comes in sensual aromas such as calming herbal notes of lavender, clary sage, and rosewood. Or how about an earthy scent that highlights notes of hinoki, cedarwood, and frankincense?
There are also oil diffusers for the home that delivers a more natural fragrance. Some of these diffusers are so lovely that they double as home decor. In addition, these elegant devices are simple to use.
For example, just fill up the water reservoir to the fill line shown. Then, add 25 to 25 drops of 100 percent pure essential oils, and select the time setting desired. A lot of oil diffusers can scent up to 500 square feet.
Congratulations, you're happy for the new homeowner, and you want to buy a special gift for them. It's an exciting time moving into a brand new space and creating lots of amazing new memories. Look over our suggestions for gift ideas. We think they are all thoughtful and awesome and something a new homeowner would appreciate.
