The holidays are here on the Eastern Panhandle and new homeowners in the area may find themselves with unexpected expenses associated with having purchased West Virginia real estate this year. So what to get the new homeowners for the holidays? The following are just a few gift ideas that would be great for those that have recently bought homes on the Eastern Panhandle.
Gift Cards to the Hardware Store
Many homeowners will find themselves at the hardware store this season as they prepare to update their new homes in Charles Town, Ranson, Shepherdstown, Harpers Ferry, Martinsburg, Inwood, Falling Waters, or Hedgesville. Assembling furniture, repairing fixtures and other spots in the home requires tools which many recent homebuyers may not have in their arsenal. And while you may not know exactly what tools the new homeowners do have on hand, you can help them expand their collection with a hardware store gift card. It can get pricey running to the store every time a repair pops up in the home and you can help them alleviate some of that expense.
Make It Personal
You don't have to be incredibly in tune to the home styles of the new homeowners, but you can help them make their houses in Jefferson County and Berkeley County into homes. Think of what helps you stay on top of things as a homeowner— where do you keep your mail, your appliances, your trinkets? According to MSN Real Estate, "in any living space, it's easy to lose track of your mail, keys and little trinkets." Gift the new Jefferson County and Berkeley County homeowners a charging dock or station, letter holder, or catch-all that can hold your keys, mail, and any notes you may need for the days to come. It's a great way to stay on top of things in the new year!
Everyone enjoyed receiving toys for the holidays as a child and appliances are the grown-up version of those! There's a gift for every budget and price range in this category and "energy-efficient additions to a home will be useful in the short term — by taking expenses off the homeowner's plate — and long term, when it comes to paying utility bills," said MSN Real Estate. Gift a programmable thermostat or electric blanket to help them keep warm this winter and save money throughout the year.
Weather Friendly Tools
What's one thing you might now be prepared for as a homeowner? The weather! It may seem silly, but a handy gift to give the new Eastern Panhandle homebuyers is a shovel, rake, or other yard tools. If they haven't had to maintain their yard and driveways before, they might be in need of one of these items and you can gift the best item yet! They will certainly appreciate these when the time comes to use them and they realize they already have one— no trip to the hardware store is necessary!
