Gift Guide for the Home

eHow Home Blog

This holiday season, while we are all hustling to gather gifts for friends and family, don’t forget to think about one very important part of your life: your home. All year long, your home provides you and your family with a warm and cozy place to spend time together, so why not thank your happy home with a few presents under the tree …

A home warranty. As homeowners we all know how terrifying the thought of an old furnace or hot water heater kicking the bucket can be. For your own peace of mind, purchase a home warranty policy that will help cover the big expenses of homeownership.

A day of TLC. Put together a to-do list of all the around-the-house odds and ends that you’ve been putting off. Touching up paint, deep cleaning the kitchen, caulking the bathtub … Set aside a Saturday to knock out all of the little home projects that have been nagging at you all year long.

A home improvement gift card. Around this time of year we often hear the same words from friends and family, “What do you want for Christmas?” Instead of shrugging your shoulders and shaking your head, consider asking for a gift card to your favorite home improvement store. Not only will you have a little cash to spend on your next home improvement project, but your family and friends will love checking out your home projects knowing they helped make the before & after possible.
