Gift Ideas For a New Homeowner

It's likely someone you know has just moved into a new house this year and is still trying to pull their house together for the holidays. Snag one of these gifts that they are sure to find a cozy spot for in their home.

A Custom Welcome Mat

It's all about first impressions right? Your house is no different. Give the gift of a welcome mat that is perfect for the new homeowner in your life. Traditional "Welcome" mats are a thing of the past and witty phrases like "If you're not Ryan Gosling, please leave" are the hot new trend. You can even look into getting a custom mat made with their last name or favorite saying that pairs perfectly with their new home. The ideas are endless! Check out Etsy for some awesome options! 


Most likely they are still unpacking and adding a little bit of *spice* to their new home. Candles are a great way to make someone feel at home, to remind them of a memory or time in their life, or just to add a sense of coziness for this holiday season. Downtown Frederick has great options at The Treaty General Store or Chappelle Candle Co.

The year you buy your first home, build a home, or move into your "forever home" is a monumental time in your life. It is a time where you are establishing yourself in a new space and making it your own. Give the gift of being able to mark that down for them.


A new home means new furniture, which an be a huge investment. The first step when it arrives to your new space is making sure it's protected. One of the most common ways is...coasters! What a great and useful gift! Give them peace with no water marks and the endless times they'll get to say "Use a Coaster!" Check out Retro-Metro or Muse in Downtown Frederick, they always have fun house hold items!

A House Plant

A house plant is a great way to add a bit of greenery or color to their home that they might not be thinking of while their mind is on paint colors, wall decor, and furniture. Don't worry, your friend doesn't have a green thumb? Fake house plants are great too and they offer a similar effect. Your local nursery like Big Lush Plants & Flowers, Lowes, Home Depot or Home Goods are great places!
