Finding the absolute perfect gift for everyone on your holiday list can be hard. Sometimes the perfect gift is the one that comes in card form—a practical gift that is often as desired and appreciated as much or more than other gifts. Gift cards are great gifts! They’re one-size-fits-all and you can find one for most any business or service.
Check out our top five practical gift card ideas for homeowners.
Topping the list has to be gift cards to home improvement stores. Home ownership often feels like one long to-do list of chores and repairs, many seasonal. Surprise your favorite homeowner with a gift card from Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Lowe’s, or Menards. Homeowners can find a huge selection of items for a range of projects. A gift card can also be used for seasonal decor (indoor and outdoor), especially when the post-holiday sales go into effect.
Furniture and Home Decor
The average home has five to eight rooms, which means there can be a lot of home that needs furniture and decorating. Got a new homeowner on your holiday gift-giving list? A gift card to a store like Ashley’s Furniture is thoughtful and practical. There’s so much to choose from, like decorative shelves, sconces, end tables, mirrors, and maybe even a comfy chair to kick back in during the holiday festivities.
Look to stores like At Home, Home Goods, and Crate & Barrel for gift cards that may cause a squeal of delight. These stores have so many items and price points, there’s truly something for every home and decor style.
Every home could use a few extra groceries in the refrigerator and pantry. A gift card to a grocery store is practical, but it’s also heartfelt and will be appreciated. Everyone needs groceries and even if they don’t want to use the card for food items, grocery stores have a vast selection of household goods, personal care, and even games and toys for the kids. Think gift cards to stores like Kroger, Walmart, Target, Meijer, The Fresh Market, and Whole Foods.
Specialty and Custom Home Items
Show someone how special they are to you with a gift card to a specialty or custom shop for home-related items. This category is wide open with possibilities! For a new home-owner, a gift card to Etsy may be perfect. They can choose from thousands of artisans for something personalized or custom-made for their new home.
Favorite Local Home Service Companies
Sometimes what homeowners need the most is help with specific tasks around the house. Look to local home service companies for gift cards that just might become this year’s favorite present. House cleaning, snow removal, window cleaning, and gutter cleaning top the list. These are chores that every homeowner has to deal with, but a gift card to a local company can make it so much easier.
