Stuck for gift ideas this holiday season? Rather than contributing to the endless pile of unwanted scarves which have accumulated at the back of the wardrobe ever since your partner had the misfortune of remarking “how lovely” Aunt Judy’s was, why not get your loved one something they’ll actually find useful? Here are 5 great ideas for showering them with homemaking love this Christmas.
1. A new A/C unit
It wouldn’t be an Aussie Christmas without a few scorchers but without a proper cooling system, your family lunch might be memorable for all the wrong reasons. Air-conditioners
can be significant investments but with the worst of summer still to come, time is on your side. Alternatively, now is the perfect time to get your existing system a service.
2. A fluffy, clean carpet
It might not be the first thing which springs to mind when you mention “romance” but how many of us would actually turn down the kind of indulgent luxury which comes with a professionally cleaned carpet
? Flush out all of those allergens and bacteria which have been nestling in your flooring over the winter months and surprise your partner with the kind of cleanliness you just can’t manage yourself.
3. Sparkling bathroom fittings
Taps see an awful lot of wear over their lifestyle but because they’re not especially glamorous, we have a tendency to ignore them unless they’re in dire need of unblocking or repair. But wouldn’t it be nice to wake up every day to a squeaky clean set of taps or an elegant yet practical sink fixture? A minor bathroom renovation
may be in order.
4. A clothes line
Make the most of the sun and save money on your power bill - it’s easy with an outdoor clothesline
. If you’re still managing on the simple stick-and-string model, consider an upgrade. There are lots of sleek designs and a variety of options suitable for different backyard layouts.
5. State-of-the-art blinds
The whole family will appreciate the kind of sun protection that comes with a good-quality set of window shades. As well as reducing glare, you can minimise the light and heat entering your home in the hottest part of the day and ensure a comfortable living space for everyone. Blind installation
can be made to suit a variety of budgets.
