The last few years have changed the value we put in our homes and how we see our homes as we spend more time there. And fittingly homeowners have taken on a lot of work to make their homes better suited to them. Recently, Angie Hicks, Chief Customer Officer of Home Services at Angi and Co-Founder of Angie’s List, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss giving the gift of home services.

In addition to all of that remodeling and improvement work, 38% of US homeowners completed routine home maintenance. These projects include tasks like landscaping, yard work, interior cleaning, gutter cleaning, window washing and more.

This holiday season, people will be looking for cost effective gifts and gifting home projects is a great way to stay on budget and show your friends and family how much you care. In fact, from a recent study by Beyond Finance, 4 out of 5 people said inflation has affected their holiday spending plans, with 53% saying they plan on buying fewer or less expensive gifts.

Taking on projects, either DIY or by hiring a pro is like self-care for your home and this holiday season is a perfect time to gift that care.

With budget on the brain, here are a few great DIY home projects. Lawn care - gift your family or loved ones bi-monthly lawn mowing, repaint a space, plant a garden, tackle some existing projects. You can also hire a pro to come in and complete some work too. A great gift would be to hire a cleaner following the holidays to start the year with a clean home or hire a handyman for a few hours to tackle that honey-do list.

Or if you are looking for an easy gift for that homeowner friend or relative who always seems to be doing work, the gift of Angi Key, our membership program, is perfect. At $30 a year, this membership program not only offers a discount on services booked through Angi, but also comes with an Angi Home Specialist, a dedicated advisor to help with any home needs.
