Purchasing a new home is such a momentous event in one’s life that it is only natural that friends and family tend to shower the new homeowners with gifts. If you are searching for a special gift that will set you apart from the rest, consider some of the following suggestions.
Food is always a welcome gift. After all, it’s hard work setting up furniture and unpacking boxes. Most people simply don’t have the time or the energy to cook. If possible, bring over a home cooked meal during those first few days so that your friends have a great meal. Don’t forget to bring paper plates, utensils, cups and beverages as it’s quite possible that those items have not been unpacked yet. If you are not the world’s greatest cook, gift cards to nearby restaurants can make it easier for friends to get dinner or lunch.
Because buying a home is an occasion to celebrate, consider ordering a special treat for your friend. The Chocolate Pizza Company, for instance, can ship one of their signature Chocolate Pizzas throughout the United States and Canada. The pizzas are made by hand, wrapped in cellophane and placed in actual pizza boxes, so even the wrapping is extraordinary.
There are many different unique varieties featuring crusts based with milk chocolate, dark chocolate or perhaps white chocolate. You can then buy pizzas topped with mixed nuts or different types of candies, such as M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces. One of the latest offerings is topped with just about everything including a variety of M&Ms, Twix, Snickers, Milky Way and peanut butter cups. The Chocolate Pizza Company also sells a variety of gift towers and gift baskets.
Food is a great option for a gift, but you also could give a live plant or plants in a pretty pot. So often people must give away their plants when the move, especially if moving a great distance from the last home. A houseplant provides a cheerful bit of decoration in the new house. You also might opt for a gift card to a nursery or perhaps a small tree for the yard. A fruit tree might be a great option, such as dwarf lemon tree or a lime tree. The tree you choose should fit the climate and the soil in the area.
For a newbie, first-time homeowner, a great gift might be an instruction manual that contains helpful repair tips and cleaning tips for a variety of common household situations. Pair it up with a gift card for a nearby home improvement store, and this can be a thoughtful and handy gift.
