Gift Box Ideas For New Homebuyers: Hygge, Homesteader, Mid-Century Mod, And More

If you’re looking for a creative gift for someone who recently bought their first home…

…(or moved into their first rental), here’s an idea: Sign them up for a subscription box that sums up what kind of homeowner they are to a T! Because believe it or not, there’s one of these boxes for almost every style, hobby, or whim these days.

Into Mid-Century Modern? There’s a box for that. If hygge is your thing, you’re also covered—as are urban gardeners, antiques aficionados, homesteaders, and those interested in a monthly charging cord club! (Although why anyone would need cords on a monthly basis is a bit beyond us.)

All can be accommodated on a monthly basis, so the recipients will remember you all year long, and your gifts won’t get lost in the holiday rush. And if a three-, six-, or 12-month subscription costs a little more than you’d planned on spending, you can always send just one, and let the recipient decide whether or not to continue it.

So, who wouldn’t love an unexpected box full of surprises, curated to their own tastes? That’s why we’ve rounded up some special monthly subscription collections that we think would tickle the fancy of the new homeowners on your list.

For the die-hard DIYer

The Homestead Box comes packed with tools and products that can facilitate living the rustic DIY life. Items such as lanterns, unique tools, guides, starter seeds, gardening implements, even chicken-raising paraphernalia can help you find or raise your own food, chop your own wood, shine your own light without the modern convenience of electricity and more. Prices range from $25 to $100 a month.

For the Mid-Century Modern aficionado

Know someone who would love a monthly fix of swingin’ coasters, swizzle sticks, rocks glasses, and barware? Betty Boomerang offers a “subscription box for retro modern homes and the people who love them.”

If you know someone who lives in an “atomic” ranch house or has an Eames chair, these hip accessories are just their thing. Prices range from $21 to $49 a box.

For hygge lovers

The Hygge Box is filled with Danish lifestyle items that promote “coziness and happiness.” Hygge, according to this site, “is about preserving happiness every day by slowing down, being humble, expressing gratitude, feeling safe, and connecting with loved ones.”

Each box includes seasonal handpicked items such as candles, fairy lights, coffee, tea, hot cocoa, chocolate, cookies, and more. The price is $28 a month.

For the urban gardener

The Urban Organic Gardener box is a curated collection of seasonal heirloom seeds and garden supplies based on your garden type, location, and grow zone (determined by your shipping ZIP code).

Each box contains five seed packs and all you need for growing them, including seed starter soil sods, plant markers/labels, and Epsom salt soil fertilizer packs. Everything is 100% non-GMO. And, at only $9.99 a month, it’s also one of the most budget-friendly gift ideas in the bunch.
