Practical Home Improvement Gifts for Valentine's Day
It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air. While chocolates and roses may be a long-standing tradition for many couples, consider surprising your partner with something extra special this year.
If you haven’t shopped for your sweetie yet, these practical home improvement gift ideas are a sure way to spice up your gift-giving this Valentine’s Day (even if it’s belated).
New and Improved Date Night
After a long day of work or taking care of the children, all anyone wants to do is relax. Keep it simple and plan a date night with your sweetie. Cross an item off of the honey-do list by finally getting around to that chimney cleaning! Then light a fire for dinner by the fireside. Or, have a picnic in front of your home’s most expansive view with some of your partner’s favorite foods. If you’re not up to cleaning or cooking, you can easily pick up a dessert from the local grocery store and watch a movie together.
Front Door Hardware
Think of upgraded hardware like jewelry for your front door. Not only will it make a statement, but it’s also a very practical fix that will pay off in the long run. Consider replacing your front door’s hardware for a fresh look. Not only will this upgrade boost your home’s curb appeal, but it can also help keep you safe.
Is your partner a perfectionist? If so, go around the house and fix those squeaky doors and floorboards. Feel more organized by adding extra storage compartments to drawers and desks. Or simply do the dishes and tidy up around the house. The gift of extra time and relaxation is priceless, and by helping out around the house you’ll have more time to spend together.
It’s the Little Things
Sometimes all it takes is something small to show someone you care. Plan to make dinner together one night a week – it's a great reason to surprise your partner with new cookware or kitchen gadgets that can be used immediately.
Celebrate Some "Me Time”
Treat yourself to a home improvement project of your choice. Hate the color of your living room? Open a bottle of wine and spend the day painting. Browse your favorite flea market for an item to repurpose. Or spoil yourself with a takeout gourmet dinner.
