Few things are more exciting than moving into a new home! Every empty space offers limitless potential and the promise of a fresh start. This big list of 10 housewarming gifts can suit all sorts of recipients: from the first-time homeowner to the new neighbor, from a college freshman living away from home for the first time to retirees who just invested in a great vacation house or cabin. There’s something for everyone.
10) iRobot Roomba Automatic Vacuum: Not only just time savers, these handy gadgets reduce the need to move heavy furniture and eliminates the struggle of reaching for those tough spots under tables or behind furniture. It’s definitely expensive, but any host is sure to appreciate a gift they can use every day for years to come.
9) August Smart Door Lock: It turns any Bluetooth-enabled Android or Apple phone into a keyless entry system. Note the helpful and distinctive features like battery power, backup key access, and customizable shared access.
8) Canary Smart Home Security: A housewarming gift that can protect the recipient’s new investment! This security system combines an HD wide-angle surveillance camera with an advanced alarm system. Its motion-activated recording can stream straight to smartphone with quality audio and automatic night vision to make sure the occupant never misses a thing.
7) Ring Wifi Enabled Video Doorbell: This sleek device allows homeowners to see who’s outside, even when nobody’s home. This handy doorbell connects to smartphones and tablets and can be activated by motion sensors in the event somebody stops by without ringing the doorbell itself.
6) Smart Coffee Machine: Looking for a housewarming gift for somebody who can’t get through the day without a couple cups of coffee? Smarter is a coffee machine that can be controlled by smartphone, making it easy to schedule an inviting brew from anywhere in the house. Imagine waking up to a fresh pot every morning without ever lifting a finger!
5) Automatic Pet Feeder: The Petnet Smartfeeder makes it easy to set up automatic feedings, or feed remotely from anywhere – perfect for a pet owner with a busy schedule! It even allows for managed portions for easy weight management. Be aware that the Petnet App requires iOS, so make sure your intended recipient has an iPhone before choosing this specific device.
4) Nest Smart Smoke Detector & Alarm: Here’s what makes this special: it detects carbon monoxide, sends alerts directly to Wi-Fi devices, and it comes with a 10 year protection guarantee.
3) Smart Weighing Scale: This isn’t your ordinary bathroom scale – its minimalistic form actually hides smart features like weight tracking, body fat calculation, and it even measures pulse wave velocity (an important metric which could only be measured in laboratories until very recently). It’s compatible with the Apple Health Kit, too! Few scales are versatile enough to give as a housewarming gift but this one is too cool to pass up.
2) Google’s Smart Home Router: A router is usually that unsightly device we all hate to meddle with, outside of praying that it works. This is Google’s approach to a beautiful and functional router that can be controlled with a smartphone. Depending upon your gift recipient’s tastes they can customize it with a variety of covers.
1) Wifi Range Extender: If your recipient’s new home is extra spacious or has thick walls, the Wi-Fi might not reach every room. This might mean no access to convenient online recipes in the kitchen, or an inconvenienced teenager who can’t study from a laptop in their own room – a stylish Wi-Fi range extender is a simple and effective solution.
