I wanted to mention a few things today about gifts that make your life easier. Now, some of you may have thought of these ideas already and that’s great. I know that I am not the only person that didn’t know you could gift services. What kind of services you ask.
Services To Gift Someone
The gift of a clean house is one of the first things that come to my mind. While we wait patiently for the robot Rosie from the Jetsons to be made and sent over to clean, we have cleaning companies. I used to have my own cleaning company and it was always a popular time around holidays and other party event to call for a housecleaning. Nowadays, you can get gift certificates with a company such as Molly Maids and have it emailed to your recipient. If you don’t want it emailed, have them send it to you and you can pass it along.
Grocery delivery is relatively new in the last decade or so and it’s a time saver for sure. Not only will it save time but save money, relieve stress and worry. Right now in my region of the world, it’s winter and the roads are not too bad but the visibility is limited. I wouldn’t go food shopping right now. I would order a delivery service for items that I need. This is a perfect gift for people who have limited time and mobility. My mother is in her 80s and I have thought of getting her groceries delivered to save her the trouble. Thrive Market, HelloFresh, FreshDirect, Aldi’s have a delivery, Wegmans and PeaPod by StopnShop to name a few.
One of the less popular household chores is laundry, there’s a pickup and drop-off delivery service for that too. If you have a local dry cleaner near you, they most likely will offer the service but do they clean all the laundry? There is a company by the name of Lazybones that will do all your laundry your way and offer storage as well. Of course if you have a house cleaner you can have them do your laundry, wash, dry, fold and put away.
Firewood delivery is an excellent gift in the winter to those friends and family members with a wood burning stove or fireplace. Warm wishes. Even if a company doesn’t have gift certificates or gift cards available, find out if you can pay for the service.
