Housewarming gifts can sometimes be tricky because it's hard to know exactly what a homeowner is going to want or need. Although you should always check with a person beforehand, we've put together a list of items that truly warm a new home.
HVAC Maintenance Plan
The best thing you can do for any homeowner is to put their mind at ease. That's why purchasing a maintenance plan with a reputable HVAC technician makes the perfect housewarming gift for any individual or family.
If the new place has a fireplace, you can pick up a fireplace kit at your local home improvement store or build your own. Popular items include a fireplace poker, an ash broom, and maybe even a set of logs. You should also feel free to pick up a few decorative items for the fireplace mantle that you know they'll love.
If the home that your friend or loved one is moving into is relatively new, there's a good chance that they already have a programmable thermostat. But, there are upgraded models coming out all the time, which allow better functionality such as on-the-fly changes through a wi-fi connection.
Items That Produce Warmth
Staying warm during the winter months is a goal of every homeowner. While the new household's heating system surely does a wonderful job, you can help them save energy if you pick up items like a space heater or thick blanket as a housewarming gift. You might even want to get them an ugly sweater just for the fun of it!
Small Electric Grill
Running the stove or oven every single night gets time-consuming, not to mention that the energy cost can be quite high. You can help a new homeowner avoid this by picking up a small electric grill for tasty meals that they can make in a short period of time.
