Sometimes parents and grandparents can be some of the most difficult people to shop for. Often, they already have everything they need and want. And maybe they don’t really want more stuff to have to keep up with as they start to pare down the number of possessions they own.
So here’s a Father’s Day gift idea or Mother’s Day gift idea for them that they might actually enjoy:
A few hours of handyman service at their home!
As people get older, they often have a more difficult time doing the things they used to do. Climbing ladders, kneeling to work on the floor, or labor-intensive chores and tasks can become a lot more burdensome. But Mom and Dad (or Grandma and Grandpa) may not want to ask their children or grandchildren for help.
Even those who aren’t willing to ask for help may appreciate professional help around with the needs around the house, though. Then they can set up an appointment with the handyman at a time that suits them and give the handyman the list of minor home repairs and home maintenance jobs they need help with. And they don’t have to inconvenience any family members.
A handyman’s help may be the best gift for many people and all kinds of occasions on your list year-round!
- Young adults who are living on their own
- Busy parents who don’t have much time
- Single parents who need an extra hand
- Spouses who’s partner is deployed
- Physically impaired loved ones
- Elderly loved ones and friends
- Widows who can’t do repairs themselves
- A housewarming gift for someone buying an older home
- A gift for someone who is selling their house to help with their punch list
- Holiday gift idea or Christmas gift idea
- A gift for people who don’t need anything
If you are looking for a grandparents’ gift or parents’ gift, this would be a very thoughtful way to do something meaningful to the people you love. When home maintenance and repairs are taken care of, it takes a lot of stress and weight off of people’s shoulders. Especially when they don’t have to do the work themselves, but can have a trusted professional do it for them.
Younger people or busy parents with children at home may have the strength and energy to do lots of things on their honey-do list, but they may not have the time or know-how to do it.
People who suffer from dizziness or other health issues may know how to do repairs. But they may need to use more caution getting on ladders or working with dangerous equipment. It’s much better to let a handyman company change the lightbulbs that require a ladder or to hang a heavy mirror than to allow a loved one to risk a fall or injury.
And those who are buying an older home or selling a home always have lots of little time-consuming home projects they need to work on. Having a trusted handyman come over for a day might be just the stress-buster they need.
The great thing about a handyman’s service is that you can give this gift even if you aren’t in the same town as your loved one, once you find a local handyman with a good reputation.
