Landscaping Gift Card

For any outside beautification project a gift card from a local landscaper in their area makes perfect sense. When the time comes it can be used to purchase trees and shrubs, annuals, perennials and planters as well as covering the cost of design and installation fees.

Plant Subscription Boxes

There is nothing more comforting than a plant. Actually, having more than one is even better. Plants have that unique ability to bring a natural backdrop to any space. Give the gift of a green thumb with a Plant Subscription Box. It’s an excellent gift for plant growing newbies as well as seasoned veterans. From seeds to succulents to urban organics, a plant subscription service can run the gamut. And they offer something for everyone. Best of all they’ll bring a little green into a new homeowner’s life.

Home Improvement Gift Card

A gift card in any amount from Home Depot, Lowes, or Ace Hardware will surely go a long way. Plus, it allows a new homeowner the freedom of choosing those items they need the most. Whether its gardening supplies, patio décor, or barbecue accessories home improvement stores are like Santa’s little helpers. They have everything you need to get the job done.

New Homeowner Gift Basket

Gift baskets are a super fun way to let your imagination flow and give the homeowner a multitude of handy everyday items. Themes work best. And, remember you don’t have to use a basket as the base. A wooden crate, laundry basket, tool box or bucket works great. Then fill it with a variety of new homeowner must-haves such as a tape measure, level, glue gun, cleaners, smart bulbs, and more. A celebration gift basket with a bottle of bubbly, champagne glasses and wine and cheese is both elegant and classy.

Professional House Cleaning and Lawn Maintenance Services

Anyone will appreciate a month or two of free house cleaning and lawn mowing.  Lawn care services do much more than mow grass. They also keep lawns healthy, green and free of weeds. Professional lawn care services can range from $50 to $500 per visit depending on the services needed. The average cost of lawn mowing is $50-$60. The same goes for professional house cleaning services. Remember, not all professional home services are the same. When purchasing gift certificates to these types of services keep in mind the types of tasks they perform and the proximity to the new homeowner.
