    What is your budget?
    Lawns will always need doing so lawn service might be nice?
    What about one of those pre paid mastercards? Then it can be used anywhere

    Haha yes I just bought a new house and had to scrub it top to bottom :/

    The house I'm selling is the first I ever bought and I was a single mum, and it's the first I've sold, and it's going to a fellow single mum. I feel as though I should do something nice

    Great ideas ladies! I could never have thought of any of these!

    I'm going to agree with the Bunnings voucher for anybody who's just moved into a new home regardless of if they're a parent or not, single or in a relationship...there is always something to buy for around the house!

I don't know anything else about this lady except for she is a single mum, I am the vendor so don't know her personally, and I was wanting to get her something a bit special as a random act of kindness that would really be appreciated, I know how hard it is buying a home on your own!
    Hmmmm if I'm slightly offended that a single mum buying a house is seen as different from anyone else buying a house I don't consider it "pc tripe". I have also bought 2 houses as a single Mum and would hate to be described as "the single mum buying a house". But I understand you were using single mum as a description of her so people may have a better idea of what to buy.

    Very thoughtful of you OP.

    I like the idea of a voucher for a homewares store like Freedom or Adairs.

    My favourite housewarming gifts I've received have been garden based. One was a 1/2 wine barrel pot with a variety of herbs in it, and others have been fruit trees eg. olive, dwarf lime (great for mojitos!)

    I've been that single mum! I would've loved a voucher to Adairs to buy bed linen & towels
