If you know someone special who just moved into a new home, here's a list of my favorite new homeowner finds which make the perfect holiday gifts.
As an agent there's no day more special than closing day. Whether I represent buyers or sellers I always give a closing gift. So that got me thinking about all of the amazing finds out there that also make the perfect holiday gifts for a new homeowner too. As the serious shopper that I am, of course I scoured the web, local shops, malls, etc. to bring you my personal favs. Hope you love them as much as I do.
