    A cozy cotton throw is a pleasing addition to a new living room or guest room. Because the decor or color scheme may vary, choose a throw with neutral tones like one of these herringbone chenille blankets from Pottery Barn.

    If your new homeowners are gardening types, a gift of garden herb markers will help them identify their homegrown harvest year after year. These ceramic stakes work for both outdoor gardens and potted plants.

  5. Hammer It Out

    A new home usually comes with lots of little fix-it projects. Give them an all-in-one tool like a classic Swiss Army Knife or this Brook & Hunter Mo-Tool Axe to help tap, tighten, or tug those odd jobs into place.

  6. Welcome With a Wreath

    Considered a symbol of both welcome and strength, a wreath is a lovely gift for a new homeowner. A living variety like this succulent wreath should last much longer than a traditional evergreen wreath, and can even be transplanted for a happy life in a windowsill container.

    Chances are there’s a blank wall or an unadorned corner that needs some inspiration. A tasteful piece of wall art that pays homage to home sweet home will be a long-lasting reminder of their early days in their new abode.

  8. Door-to-Door Delivery

    Nothing puts a personal stamp on a new home like a welcome mat sporting the family initial. And because the doormat from the old place probably didn’t make it onto the moving truck, a fresh replacement will certainly be appreciated.

    With a new place in which to entertain, your new homeowners will love some unique serving pieces to grace their celebrations and let them really strut their stuff. Just like the new house, this cheese board offers a blank slate on which your friends can make their own imprint.
