When we are young, our Christmas lists are usually full of things like puppies, ponies and the latest toys on the market. But as we get older, our lists include things that are a little more practical! And let’s be honest, it’s still magical.
Here are some great gift ideas for the practical people in your life!
Home gifts for a plague-free holiday
No one likes pests in their home, but sometimes it is difficult to avoid them without taking preventive measures. There are some great gifts you can get for people that can help ward off pests all year long!
A good vacuum cleaner
The vacuum is one of the most important tools in a pest control arsenal. Not only them keep things cleaner, which attract fewer pests, but they can also be used to remove small pests such as fleas. There are many great vacuum options out there, so just get the best you can within your budget! Whether it’s a complete vacuum or a handheld vacuum for small spaces, it will go a long way in keeping your friend or family member’s home pest-free.
Window or Door Screens
If someone close to you has a great patio or backyard, but mosquitoes always seems to crash the party, get a screen door installed! It’s also great for windows if this person likes to leave their windows open. This is an especially good gift for the South, as we have a lot of bugs in the summer.
A trash can upgrade
Sure, they’re just trash—but not all trash is created equal! If your partner uses a bare bones bin without a lid, they are unknowingly attracting all kinds of pests to their garbage. Get one that seals tightly when not in use. Looking for a little more luxury? Opt for one with a sensor! They will be able to scrape dishes and throw litter with a wave of the hand.
A bug catcher
No matter how clean someone is, they are bound to encounter the unwanted house guest from time to time. And when that happens, why not give them an easier way to catch them? There aren’t many things more stressful than trying to catch a scary spider with a cup against the wall. A bug catcher allows you to safely catch the animal from a safe distance and transport it outside.
Cleaning products may sound like a boring gift, but they are essential to a clean home and something not everyone wants to buy for themselves. Buy all the basics they need to keep things clean and pest free, and put them together in a cute gift basket! This would be the perfect gift, especially if the recipient has just moved, bought a house, got married, etc.
