Remember when you bought your first home? You scraped up the money for the downpayment. Figured out how much you could swing on the monthly payment. Moved in and thought – you did it! You are homeowners! Only to realize that when you OWN a home, there are a lot of things that you need to maintain it. So with the help of my daughter and son-in-law, who recently bought their first home, I put together this list of the 10 Absolute Best Gifts for New Homeowners.

Stuff for the yard
I remember moving into our first home. A brand-new ranch style home on a cul-de-sac sitting on a huge pie shaped lot. The only thing was, the builder only put grass in the front yard. That first Spring, we laid 9 pallets of sod in that huge backyard and spent the summer watering it and taking care of it so it would grow.
For most new homeowners, one of the first purchases they make are things to take care of their yard.
Home maintenance supplies
When you own your own home, there is no calling the management company or landlord anytime something breaks. And unless you have an unlimited supply of funds, most homeowners will learn to do a least a few of the simple repairs themselves. That requires tools, which can get quite pricey!
