porch swing

By Rosemarie Pirio

Owning a home can be stressful at the best of times, and it can take a lot of adjustment for new homeowners. Between balancing a much larger monthly budget and tackling a whole lot of exciting responsibilities, new owners need all the help they can get.

Here are some great ideas for house warming parties:

 

 

Kitchen 

Cast-iron skillets, wine racks and knife sets will be handy accessories for any new homeowner.

Garden Decorations

You can probably skip the classy plastic flamingoes, but lawn and garden decorations make terrific gifts for new homeowners. Since many first-time buyers are moving from apartments or rental houses, they may not have anything to brighten their lawns or front porches.

·  Wind chimes, 

·  Glass or copper figurines, 

·   Birdhouses 

Household Tools

·  Ladder  To get in the attic, clean gutters or repair ceiling light fixtures, but homeowners will be doing a lot of climbing. A ladder is a must for any garage.

·  Drill Set A good drill and bit set can make even the most amateur carpenter feel confident in repairs.

·  Socket Wrench Set Socket wrenches and ratchets are great for anything from car repair, furniture construction and plumbing repairs. They’ll be a welcome gift.

·  Hammer and Level Any dummy can hang shelves and pictures, but a little help goes a long way. A level will make sure your pictures are hanging straight whenever you visit the new house.

·  Plumbing Kit You can confidently assume that most owners have a plunger, but many may not have a set of pliers, channel locks or an adjustable wrench three items that will see a lot of use in a new home.

·  Lawn Care – Hose, weed wacker, gardening tools
