Know someone with the New Year’s resolution to finally fix the leaky sink or repair the shed in the backyard? While some people may never know the difference between a Phillips head and flat head screwdriver, others seem born knowing how to take apart the remote control. You may never get them to put the vacuum back together once they’ve gotten to see inside, but do-it-yourselfers are a unique personality type who enjoy discovering how the world works and learning how to be self-sufficient. Celebrate their love of tinkering by giving them home improvement gift cards.
From raw materials to the right tool for the job, home improvement gift cards can help with a variety of projects from retiling the bathroom to remodeling the kitchen or fixing the broken sink. They’re also a great gift for expectant parents wanting to paint the nursery in preparation for their growing family. Give a gift card to The Home Depot® or Lowe’s to help your do-it-yourselfer get started on their next project.
Many home improvement stores also sell gardening supplies, perfect for the budding horticulturist in your family. Did you know gardening has been linked to a lower risk of osteoporosis and diabetes? According to the Mother Nature Network
, it has been linked to getting a better sleep and overall improved “zest for life.” Gardening was also listed in The Street as one of ten do-it-yourself skills
that can save money.
Other money saving do-it-yourself skills included basic car maintenance, and basic computer maintenance. Invest in your child’s interest in computers with a gift card for electronics and watch your return on investment grow as they prepare for college.
Not only can giving gift cards help your recipient achieve their New Year’s goals, it can nurture their do-it-yourself personality, helping them discover, learn, save money, prepare for the future, and pass their knowledge down to the next generation.
