This year, save money and help your community when you buy your loved ones’ Christmas gifts from the Halifax Habitat Restore. The proceeds from your purchase will be used to help others have a safe home to live in. Below are some fantastic ideas for items you can buy from the restore and turn into something beautiful and meaningful for your most precious friends and family members.
Halifax Habitat Restore is a great place to find picture frames. The wonderful thing about picture frames is they are so versatile! You can fill the frames with meaningful and memorable family photos of when the kids were younger, or other special occasions in your family’s life like a beach vacation, wedding, anniversary, or when a newborn is first held by their mother. Preserved memories make wonderful gifts for family members. Framing children’s artwork is another sweet way to preserve memories and make a child feel proud of their work and creativity.
Picture frames can be easily cleaned and, if necessary, painted any color or design you prefer. You can paint the frames yourself or have your children help paint them.
The Halifax Habitat Restore is a good place to buy coffee mugs. You’ll probably find that perfect coffee mug for someone. But if you can’t, you can always find a plain coffee mug and paint it. Try having your children paint the mugs as a gift to their older family members. A hand-painted mug from a child is a precious gift that will light up the face of any mom, dad, aunt, uncle, or especially a grandparent.
Flower Pots are often found at the Halifax Habitat Restore. They are inexpensive, and they can be filled with the most beautiful flowers, plants, or herbs to make a gorgeous and meaningful Christmas gift. Like coffee mugs, flower pots are easy to clean and can also be hand-painted by you or your children.
Filing cabinets are a very common restore item, and they can be found for pennies on the dollar compared to what they would cost brand-new at a business supply store. Talk about a useful gift… Filing cabinets are great for everyone! Tax season isn’t too much later than Christmas, and there is no better place to organize tax related receipts and papers than in a filing cabinet. Even kids can use filing cabinets to store their toys or knickknacks. Again, they are easy to clean and can be hand-painted for a special person in your life.
You will often find very affordable patio furniture at the Halifax Habitat Restore. They make such great gifts, and encourage family time. Gather in the backyard, enjoy the outdoors, and watch your children and dog play in the grass while you sip on some cold sweet tea or a cup of hot coffee.
The Halifax Habitat Restore is the perfect place to do your Christmas shopping. Above are just five ideas of great gifts you can find at the Restore.
And don’t forget you can DONATE items to be sold at the Halifax Habitat Restore. Proceeds go directly to helping build houses for families that need a safe and comfortable place to live.
