Believe it. Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend. Thanksgiving in the US will be here in seven weeks and Hanukkah starts a week after that. Hanukkah starts in eight. Christmas is in 79 days. Kwanzaa starts the day after Christmas. I'm sure I'm missing more than a few of them. Oh yeah, Saturnalia runs from December 17th through the 23 if anybody out there still celebrates Roman holidays.
So it's already time to start thinking about exchanging gifts with the people in your life and I just came across a gift idea that never would have occurred to me but makes perfect sense.
In keeping with the practicality that's suddenly all the rage, Top Knobs is selling gift certificates. Theses gift certificates are available in amounts from $50 to $500 and are redeemable at any of the 5000 Top Knobs showrooms found all across North America.
The best way to give a quick makeover to a kitchen, a bathroom, a closet or a piece of furniture is to replace its hardware with something new. Top Knobs has over 3,000 products available in 30 finishes and there's something for everybody in their collections. What an original way to give somebody something most people wouldn't do for themselves. Especially now.
I have to say I thought this was an odd idea at first but the more I thought about it, the more sense it made and the better I liked it. If somebody on your list is putting off a remodel until things start to improve, this is a great way to give them a mini-makeover without breaking the bank. After all, 400 of their offerings sell for $7.99 or less.
You can buy Top Knobs gift certificates on their online store, just follow this link.
And no matter how much I want to ignore it, the holidays really are just around the corner. I think this is going to be a hardware Christmas.
