Whether you’re shopping for a first-time homebuyer or someone who simply got a new address, these gifts will let you wish them well settling into their new house.


Smart Lock

The first thing any new homeowner should do is replace all exterior locks. You never know who has a spare key from the previous owner. Help them with the task of turning their new home into a haven by gifting them the additional simplicity, style and security of a Schlage smart lock. Perfect for new homeowners, fans of smart homes and those who like to check their house security remotely. Also perfect for pet owners.

Rubber Return Address Stamps

Handwritten letters may be less common in the days of email, but the new homeowner in your life will still have every opportunity to use this gift. It will come in handy when mailing holiday cards, wedding invites and birth announcements, even sending care packages in a shoebox. Perfect for anyone who’s just purchased a home, those with bad handwriting and long-distance loved ones who like to stay in touch the old-fashioned way.

Glass Windchime

Give the gift of relaxation as your loved ones enjoy time on their new deck or patio. Windchimes come in all kinds of designs, but we picked this glass version for its simple beauty. We also love that it’s handblown so each one will be unique and won’t fade in the sun since there’s no paint. Perfect for front porch loungers and Zen gardeners.

Personalized Memento

Whether your loved one has moved into their first home or upsized to accommodate their growing family, they might appreciate personalized décor like a framed map of their old neighborhood or a cutting board in the shape of their home state. Perfect for new homeowners or those who have relocated long distances.

Monogram Door Hanger

Home ownership is a big deal, so help others be proud of their accomplishment with a monogram door hanger. You can keep it straightforward with their last initial or have it personalized with their full name. Perfect for newlyweds and curb appeal-conscious homeowners.

Hello doormat


Before you scoff at this seemingly dull, utilitarian front porch décor as a gift, remember that they can be quite creative and customizable. Maybe this clever two-way mat that says either “Come In” or “Go Away” depending on which way you look at it? Perhaps a personalized mixtape doormat? Perfect for homeowners who appreciate a clean floor and don’t take their hosting duties too seriously.

Seed-bearing lollipop

Looking for a 2-in-1 gift? Then try these seed-bearing lollipops. After enjoying the gourmet sucker, the new homeowner can plant the biodegradable stick and grow an herb or flower. The flavor of the lollipop matches the seeds. Champagne & Roses, which grows rosetta cosmo, sounds like a celebratory housewarming flavor to us, but there are also themed seasonal packs. Perfect for budding gardeners and those with daring taste buds.

First Home Ornament

Get your favorite new homeowner a personalized skeleton key ornament to commemorate this major life milestone. It makes for a great Christmas tree ornament but is beautiful framed or displayed proudly anywhere in the home. Perfect for first-time buyers, newlyweds and lovers of the antique look.

Design Assistance

Some people get really excited about decorating their new home while others see it as overwhelming or just another chore. If your loved one falls in that second category, consider gifting them a Havenly design. The experience gets them time with a professional designer and plenty of ideas and guidance to help them capture a unique look just for them. Perfect for busy homeowners who still want to look good and those who can’t just “see it” in their minds.

Bartender Kit

Make sure you get invited to the housewarming party by gifting a stylish bartender kit. Just as with DIY projects, the right tools make the difference, whether it’s cocktails, mocktails or hot chocolate. Perfect for those who like to throw a good party or keep their beverages conveniently organized. Also appropriate for apartment dwellers eyeing their first home.

QR Code for WiFi Password

Whether setting up the internet in a new home or hosting long-term guests, a QR code can add an unexpected layer of ease and hospitality. Perfect for tech-savvy homeowners, those who only want to look tech savvy and those who are tired of answering, “What’s your password?
