Gift Guide for New Homeowners

Happy holidays! The season of gift planning is upon us, as we collectively try to figure out who would like what and what would be good for whom. Whether you’re looking to treat yo ‘self or plan the perfect present for someone else, you can’t go wrong with an old fashioned idea list.

In that vein: gifts for the home. I dream of a day when Chad and I fulfill our savings goals and are able to buy our first home. In the meantime, I’ve curated a list of items that would fill that home nicely.

Check out these home-themed holiday gift ideas.

This post contains affiliate links to products. At no extra charge to you, I may receive a commission for purchases made through these links.

1. A faux-fur blanket that adds an extra layer of coziness to any living room Netflix binge session. They’ll be wrapped up in this soft material as soon as they get home every day.

I guarantee you: home owner or renter, no one will ever be upset about receiving a wonderful new blanket for Christmas. (Please, give me a wonderful new blanket. Chad. Please.)

Get it from Amazon for $21.99+.

2. A small-space approved garment rack for anyone who wants to a) stay organized or b) display their upcoming outfits for the week.

If their New Year’s resolution is to keep things clean and simplify, a garment rack is a great tool for Marie Kondo-inspired success. 

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+.

3. For those with a sleek and cool living room aesthetic, a modern side table to match.

As with anything marble, you can sure count me in. 

Fun fact: all of the marble used in the Washington, D.C. memorials are sourced from Marble, Colorado, just up the road from me, near Redstone Castle. 

Get it from Amazon for $48.07+.

4. A shelving unit—whether it’s for the garage, kitchen, or as a printer stand, there’s always use for some extra shelves around the house. 

We actually have this in our house. I use it for extra storage in our office, holding paper and supplies. 

Get it from Amazon for $49.99+.

5. New bedding that cannot get any more comfortable if it tried: a sherpa comforter

I’ll be honest: this comforter is on my wish list, near the top. It will be a definite upgrade for our guest bedroom, where it’s a little on the chilly side. 

Get it from Amazon for $44.99+.

6. No house is complete without plants of some kind. These live succulents bring low-maintenance yet so-cute energy to any home.

This is another purchase of mine that I’m really happy about. Our little cacti have been hanging out in our sunniest window sills, living the good life. 

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+.

7. A trendy rolling cart, which is perfect for bar supplies, a side table, or as a portable book shelf. 

I’m a huge fan of this popular home decor piece; it puts a unique twist on a practical item. 

Get it from Amazon for $52.79+ or Target for $35+.

8. A statement piece for any room in the house, like this affordable contemporary accent chair

An accent chair can bring some extra flavor and attention to a room, and really tie things together. 

Get this grey option from Amazon for $78.29+.

9. Rugs, especially fun faux fur ones, are a great gift for any kind of home owner or dweller.

Seriously, rugs are expensive! And they add up. 

Get it from Amazon for $15.95+.

10. Macrame wall hangings are all the rage; they perfectly decorate a blank wall, and add a little dimension to a collection of paintings or prints. 

I personally love bohemian decor, and have added these pieces onto a few of my walls. They are great!

Get two from Amazon for $27.95+.

11. A set of matching frames are perfect for all of the paintings, prints, and photographs that deserve to be showcased. 

Matted black frames look great on any wall. Even better when the frames match!

Get the set from Amazon for $29.95+.

12. This full-length mirror is an investment-worthy upgrade for anyone looking to update their space. 

This would be such a nice present to receive, especially for the blogger or mirror-selfie taker in your life. 

Get it from Amazon for $149.99+.

13. Any kitchen can use a nice casserole dish in their collection of oven-friendly cookware. 

You can’t go wrong with a high-quality piece of pottery that looks great and also is super functional. 

Get it from Amazon for $32.99+.

Happy gift giving, especially to those new homeowners in your life. Cheers!

Pin it, too!

  1. Some really great stuff here, and nothing breaks the bank! My wife had Marie Kondo on her Kelly Clarkson talks show and its fascinating to hear the inspiration and philosophy behind organization!

  2. These are lovely ideas! We just bought a new home and could really use a full-length mirror! I also really like the shelving units, as we’ve downsized and space is at a minimum! We did a lot of decluttering after reading Marie Kondo’s book & watching her Netflix series, but still need to reorganize what’s left after moving.
