T’is the season to be merry and spread the festive cheer! With 10 days away from Christmas, you still have time to do Christmas shopping. For most of us, laundry gifts aren’t what you expect when you open your Christmas gifts but if you’re thinking of making laundry chores easier for someone, here are our top 5 laundry gift ideas for Christmas!
1. Detergent Cup Holder
Doing laundry work can be tedious and sometimes clumsy – especially when the laundry detergent accidentally spills onto the floor as you pour it from the bottle.
This Christmas, to save your friends from laundry fears, get them a detergent cup holder that is convenient, useful and will prevent any detergent spillage! It is also easy to assemble!
2. Dryer Balls
It’s hard not to include dryer balls in our Christmas list of laundry gift ideas! They are becoming popular in households due to their benefits and ability to prevent clothes from clumping together inside the tumble dryer.
3. Handheld Steamer
If you want a Christmas gift that tells the recipient ‘I appreciate you and want to make your chores easier’ then you can’t go wrong with the handheld steamer! It doesn’t take up much space and can be easily packed when travelling. It is also a great alternative to ironing.
We know ironing isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, especially when you need to clean the ironing board from time to time, so getting your friends and family a handheld steamer is thoughtful!
4. Dryer Sheets
Much like wool dryer balls, dryer sheets are becoming increasingly popular in households. Nobody likes it when clothes get glued together in the dryer but with dryer sheets, clothes will be kept apart and will reduce static electricity!
Dryer sheets are also great for friends that love fragrances!
What’s more, if you have friends that love cleaning chores, dryer sheets can also be useful for cleaning and scrubbing due to the fragrance chemicals in them!
5. Laundry Signs
Buying a laundry sign is a great light-hearted gift! If you have an organised friend who likes to put signs and labels on items, then we suggest you buy a laundry sign that pokes fun at their habits! It’s witty, fun and will no doubt make them remember you every time they come across the sign on laundry day!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! These top 5 Laundry gift ideas for Christmas will no doubt spread joy. Now that we’ve given you ideas, you know what to do!
