Gifts for Home Buyers9. Home Chef

When my husband and I moved into our new home, we couldn't find anything for weeks. With him working 12+ hour days and me being 8 months pregnant, we definitely weren't as organized or quick to unpack and other might be. We found ourselves eating fast food more times than not. We didn't have time to shop for groceries! I learned that many families are dealing with the same thing, that's why I highly recommend giving a Home Chef subscription as a housewarming gift for new homeowners! Fresh ingredients and easy recipes will be delivered right to the door of their brand new home. Home Chef takes the guess work out of new recipes and is easy for anyone to cook. You don't have to be a “home chef” to whip up an incredible meal! It's a homeowner's paradise!

Unique Thoughtful Gifts for Homeowners10. Amazon Prime

This isn't a typical housewarming gift but it's one that just about anyone would appreciate! Buying a new home means out with the old and in with the new. It's not uncommon to declutter as you're packing for your big move. Every once in awhile, you may throw something out that you didn't necessarily mean to. Another common situation is to find yourself in your brand new home and realizing that you want to go on a decorating spree (like I did). Amazon Prime is the perfect service to use to get everything you need with one or two-day shipping! Amazon Prime also offers exclusive deals for Prime members only!

Get it here → Amazon Prime Membership, $12.99 a month or $99 a year
