Well, it’s happened again…Angeline moved away. This time, it’s all the way in Central-ish Florida, and her dude actually bought a house, so it’s PERMANENT. Cue all the tears – especially since she took my grandson with her! Angeline is 24 now, with her own little family; so of course I am incredibly thrilled for her, despite missing her like mad!
While she has had her own place on previous bought of living away from me, this is the first time she has a total HOUSE on her own, and she is in heaven decorating and filling it up with her own belongings.
Like any parent does during this kind of big move, I have been busy putting together care packages and gift boxes to send to her and take to her to help her get started in her own house! I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I’m gifting Angeline in this guide of 7 Gift Ideas for a First Time Home Owner!

Simple. Clean. Bare. Bare Candle Company is leading the candle industry towards sustainability and transparency, using natural ingredients and premium fragrance oils to create non-toxic products for you and your loved ones.
Ashlyn Rowland founded Bare Candle Company while she was in high school, initially creating custom scents for herself and her family.
With support for her brand she was able to work her dreams full time – all while still being a full-time college student! Keeping candles as they should be, simple.
Each candle is crafted with wax made entirely from soybeans grown in the United States. Sourcing locally means they are reducing their carbon footprint while supporting other small businesses.
Vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, and made with no paraffins, phthalates, parabens, or prop 65 chemicals. Just simple candles you can trust.
Bare Candle Company scents their candles with fine fragrance oils. These fragrances are a premium blend of synthetic and natural fragrances made with sustainability in mind.
Using purely essential oils, or a majority of essential oils, is simply not environmentally friendly. For example, to make enough essential oil fragrance for almost 30 candles, it takes 10,000 pounds of rose petals for a rose scent, and 1,500 individual lemons for a lemon scent.
There are also some popular scents, including Palo Santo and Sandalwood, that are vulnerable or even endangered. Using synthetic fragrance oils allows them to continue protecting these natural resources while also bringing you the amazing scents you know and love.
Each is jarred in reusable and recyclable amber glass and uses eco-friendly tree-free labels. They are proud to use only 100% cotton wick for a clean and even burn time.
Prices begin at $24, and you can shop here!
I hope that you are liking these 7 Gift Ideas for a First Time Home Owner so far – it’s going to get even better with these next recommendations!

It took me under 10 minutes to install ours, and the hardest part came afterwards – when I tested the rear spray and didn’t realize how strong that water pressure would be when turned all the way…let’s just say that I had to change the towels hanging on the towel rod because they got wet. HA!
