Top gifts for new homeowners in South Florida!

Whether you are looking to make South Florida your permanent home, or are planning a seasonal residency; during the holidays you will find that we South Floridians make good use of advice to welcome our new neighbors during the season.

The good folks at® just posted a great gift-giving list. In the article written by Beth Braverman, she mentions, “When someone buys a new home, they barely know where to begin when it comes to stocking it with things they need—and now that there’s no landlord to take care of problems, they’ll probably need a lot. Plus, their budget is likely stretched tight. It’s a perfect gifting situation!”

Braverman’s tips include:

  • A subscription to Angie’s List – From plumbers to painters, good help is hard to find. Angie’s List members can read vetted reviews of vendors in their area and get access to discounts before they book. $9.99 to $59.99 for a one-year subscription.
  • The Bible for Home Repairs – Think of it as an essential textbook for new homeowners. Readers get an illustrated guide to all the systems in their home and tutorials on basic repairs. $18, Amazon
  • Leatherman Wave – Leatherman’s most (justifiably) famous tool is a pocket-size, multipurpose gadget for homeowners tackling small jobs. This model has 17 tools, including multiple wire cutters, knives, and pliers. $90.85.
  • Craftsman mechanics tool set – When the Leatherman won’t cut it, you’ll have to pull out the big guns. There are few projects you won’t be able to tackle with help from the 137 pieces in this set. $129.99, Ace Hardware Stores.
  • A chunky blanket – A warm blanket can instantly add warmth and style to a living room. Plus, tired new homeowners can snuggle under it after a long day of painting or unpacking. $169, Darby Smart
