Here are some awesome ideas that could be implemented in your own home.


When dad was a kid, he’d do his own laundry so that he wouldn’t have to spend an hour in the dryer. After all, how many times did he come home from work and find his clothes wrinkled, water stained, or stained with the floor cleaner on the floor? That’s a real hassle when you have so many other chores to deal with, let alone laundry! How many of us could name a couple dozen ideas that he could have tried? So, he made himself a mini laundry room with a space heater, a box fan, a water pump, and soap and detergent, and he ran it all day every week for three years straight.

Another great idea is to shop around for the best prices on the gifts you really want to give. As a holiday gift, you should be able to get a discount that will allow you to buy the same size box of chocolates or gourmet coffee with the same amount of money you spent on the fancy new flat screen TV that everyone wants. This allows you to not only avoid the cost of the present but also gives you a few extra items to give away to your friends and family members that might not have the same value as what you purchased.

For those that love tech gadgets, there are hundreds of them that will be just the thing for the new “whatever.” You can even go all out with a hands-on electronic project. If you want to get some specific types of electronics for your new addition, consider getting their hobbies and interest, as well as their favorite brands.

Does your husband or wife miss long distance calls? If so, check into calling plans that will allow you to send messages or track cell phone locations via computer. These products are widely available online, and it is amazing how much difference a few minutes of chatting can make in the company of a loved one.

Some new laptops may be great for taking vacation photos, but they also make excellent gifts for the avid photo enthusiast in your life. Check into photo organizers that will allow you to share the snaps from your holiday vacation with friends and family, and then turn them into digital photos. For some “wow” factor, get a few of these fun gadgets and take them out on the town, making a few memorable snaps.

Do you have a child who needs an Xbox or PlayStation game system but you can’t quite afford it? If so, consider putting up an internet cafe for them to play their favorites games while they earn their financial independence. Often, parents offer this sort of service to their children, so don’t feel obligated to provide one for them; just be sure to purchase a wireless router for your business that will allow you to manage your business accounts, and that will allow your kids to play online.

These are some awesome ideas for gifts that can be picked up at your local retail store, but wouldn’t you rather give it a unique twist? Consider stocking your house with some cool gadgets, or choose gifts that are handcrafted, and let the creative energy flow!
