Holiday season is upon us, and traditionally the time to get together, share delicious meals and fun stories, and exchange gifts.
The thing about gifts is, we are realizing more and more that what everyone wants more of is – appreciation and thoughtfulness, and perhaps support or help with something important that they cannot easily do themselves.
So this holiday season, how about thinking outside the box when it comes to gifting? Don’t spend money on another piece of jewelry or clothing for your spouse or your mom; don’t buy your dad another gadget or a gift card.
Lose the same old gifts, and give something special to your loved ones – such as a home update or improvement, a gift that will last forever!
Whether it’s a DIY home remodeling project you may want to take on, or hiring a contractor to complete it, give the gift of a remodel- the person on the receiving end will thank you (and will keep thanking you)!
Here are just some ideas for home remodeling projects that make perfect gifts:
While any project will likely surprise your spouse or your parent, giving them the gift of a redecorated kitchen or bathroom will make them absolutely speechless!
The great thing is, it doesn’t have to be elaborate and overly time-consuming, and the cost can actually be more within your budget than you may think. No need to totally gut the rooms to give them a new look.
Revamping the kitchen or bathroom can be as simple as adding new fittings and a fresh layer of paint to the cabinets. In the course of a day, walls can be repainted. That farmhouse sink she’s been talking about for a while installed; or, a new vanity in the bathroom.
A nice touch and an easy thing to accomplish is updating the fixtures and cabinet hardware. Perhaps a beautiful large mirror added to the hallway, or the existing bathroom mirror framed with molding for a refined appearance.
If you really want to impress your dear one, consider re-tiling and adding a heated floor, or modernizing the countertops.
Perhaps you have aging parents who could really use some assistance with more practical things this winter, such as stopping air leakage, heating system repairs, or even just for hanging Christmas lights.
While many people are handy and love spending their days doing home improvements, most homeowners are not motivated to work on their or someone else’s home during the winter holiday season.
