In the spirit of the holidays and, well, Real Estate – I wanted to share some of my favorite ideas for home related gifts. Many are mostly functional gifts, but with current economical times many gift-buyes are leaning towards a more functional gift this Holiday Season. Here are four of my favorites:
Give the Gift of Warmth: with an Avista gift certificate that can be used just like a check to pay heating bills. Energy bills can often be one of the largest expenses a family has during the holidays, and the gift of warmth will be remember year-round!
A Home Warranty: Can you say budget protetion? The gift of a Home Warranty can cover many unexpected household failures from appliances to broken pipes. The home warranty is a sensible gift for any homeowner.
Carbon Monoxided & Explosive Gas Detector – admitedly not the “funnest” gift of the season, BUT Carbon Monoxide is the number one cause of poison related deaths in America. A simple $50 gift can save the life of your loved ones. I prefer the one with the explosive gas detector to alert me if my furnace stops functioning correctly. This is a must have!
Address Plaques are in! We’ve had several of these and there’s no better way to add some fun to the front of your home than with a custom address plaque.
