This post is the 6th in a series on holiday gifts for your loved ones. This year, we’ve broken it down for you based on hobbies, occupations, and personalities. So far we’ve covered gifts for techies, bookworms, adventurers, chefs, and handypeople…
Life, work, and even family can be exhausting. So exhausting that when you’ve finally made it home, all you want to do is kick back and veg out. If you know someone who works hard all day – whether at an office or in a kitchen, climbing mountains or keeping shop, you can give them the gift of relaxation this holiday, with light!
Check out these neat gift ideas that will work hard for you:
Remote Lighting Controls
Nothing says “license to chill” better than a remote control, and when you’re ready to call it a night, you might not always have the energy (or mental capacity) to get up and turn off the lights. That’s where this remote control comes in handy. It’s a cinch to install on almost any lamp. Use it while reading in bed, for aging in place, or just for someone who needs to catch a break every now and then.
A light switch as a gift? Come on! It does sound a little silly at first, but here’s the deal: being able to adjust the lighting level in your living space has been scientifically proven to help regulate healthy sleep patterns – to invigorate and to calm. If you have someone in the family who could use a little peace and quiet this holiday, consider adding a dimmer to their bedroom or bathroom, the perfect accessory for tranquil “me time.”
Finally, if you know someone who loves relaxing outside, consider gifting some deck or patio lights to add beauty and function to the home’s outdoor areas. They’ll add a festive glow this time of year, and your loved ones can enjoy them year-round! For a simple upgrade, try some battery operated deck lights. For an awesome feature with some installation required, you can opt for LED step lights.
