  • DEWALT Miter Saw Stand, Heavy Duty from Amazon—This stand lets your handyperson work with up to 16 feet of material securely and safely.

Work lights

The gift of professional handyman service

If you don’t have a handy spouse or your handyman husband/wife doesn’t have the time or desire to work on your honey-do list, maybe the best gift you can get for your sweetheart is a professional handyman!

Buy a few hours of handyman help and knock out those annoying little repair jobs and maintenance items that have been neglected around the house. 

Then you get the honey-do list completed and free up your spouse’s time for more important things. 

Hiring a handyman to help your elderly loved ones is also a fantastic way to help keep them safe so they don’t try to climb up on chairs or ladders to change lightbulbs or hang decorations. Falls are a leading cause of serious injury or even death for our elderly family members and friends. Why not prevent a tragedy with the thoughtful gift of a day with a trusted handyman?
