Team Powers' Favorite Gift Ideas for the Holidays

Wrapped Gits on Table

‘Tis the Season! We love our homes and those of our clients here at Powers Realty Group and thought we’d share our favorite traditional and tech gadgets with you this season to help you find the perfect gift for the home-lover on your list.

1. Personalized Door Mat ~ Traditional...but very welcoming. One of our favorite items to give and to get. The best personalized door mats can be found @ Frontgate online or in its catalog. Our local favorite stores for doormats are Crate & Barrel and Target.

2. Nest Thermostat ~ These convenient high-tech gadgets are very popular and a great gift to give the homeowner who has everything. The Nest regulates the temperature of your home to save you on energy costs. It turns itself down when you’re away. The Nest app allows you to change the temperature from your phone, laptop or smartwatch.

3. Amazon ECHO ~ This is my absolute favorite tech gadget. Echo (or “Alexa”) responds to voice commands. Just ask it to play music, for a weather update, sports scores, or news and it responds instantly. You can also connect it to Wi-Fi enabled devices in your home such as lights or your thermostat. An absolute kitchen must have for music lovers!

4. RING Video Doorbell ~ A doorbell video camera system that allows you to keep an eye on your front door from your phone, tablet or computer. Easy monitoring of package delivery and visitors to your home.

5. My personal favorite: Restoration Hardware Italian-Vintage Washed Sheet SetThese sheets are amazing. Very crisp. Not too soft. These are like the sheets your mother put out on the line to dry when you were young. They wrinkle and need to ironed but are amazing to wake up in. They crunch and are almost cold to the touch. There is just something about these sheets that are heaven sent. 

6. iRobot Roomba Vacuum. This self-propelled vacuum does all the work for you. It even recharges itself. One of the newer features is an innovative shutter that extends out to capture debris trapped in corners and edges of the wall. You can program the vacuum to run from your phone even when you are not home. Very cool gadgetry.

7. Favorite Bottle of Wine ~ CAYMUS Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is a great choice and one of my favorites. A little pricey but a very nice gift for the special wine lover on your gift list.

8. Indulgence Chocolates and Toffee from Burke Candy ~ And for the food lover on your list, Milwaukee has incredible options: Indulgence Chocolates are truly exceptional, hand-crafted chocolates, and Burke Candy has the best toffee we’ve ever tasted.
