Gifts from the heart for the hearth

/ 04:18 AM November 24, 2018

Christmas is the season of giving. There’s nothing more precious than seeing the happy, surprised looks and excited smiles on everyone’s faces when giving and receiving Christmas presents.

We won’t deny though that ‘tis also the season of worry, as we stress about the perfect gift to give our dear parents, grandparents and siblings. We, of course, would want to give something that is practical and will be of good use to them.


More than being a one-stop shop for construction supply and home improvement needs, Wilcon Depot also offers a wide selection of possible gift ideas for your family and friends. From furniture pieces to decorative storage ideas, we rounded up some of them.


For grandma

She has been using that chair for as long as you can remember. It’s her favorite spot as she reads the newspaper every morning. It’s where she does her crocheted runners and mantles, where she read storybooks to you when you were little. The upholstery has seen better days and the cushion is not as fluffy as it should be.

Time to retire your grandmother’s accent chair and surprise her with a new, more comfortable seat this Christmas like this one from Heim. You can even choose from a variety of prints and colors, depending of course on lola’s favorite.

For sister

We all have that one sister who loves to travel. And she likes keeping mementos of her trips: from plane tickets to maps, train cards, shopping receipts and whatever else she can take home with her to remind her of her adventure.

Surprise her with a Travelers Chest where she can store travel souvenirs (instead of cluttering her room with it and giving mom a headache all the time).


For mom

Speaking of mom, a nice-looking storage solution for a clutter-free house might be a good gift idea. Save the queen of the house from the stress of where to hide trinkets, papers and everything else just to keep the house looking neat and orderly, especially when guests arrive at your home this holiday season. Heritage has quite a number of cabinets and chests that mom will surely love.

For dad

He’s the one who’s always to the rescue when there’s a light bulb that needs replacing, when there’s a leak in the bathroom, or when there’s a wobbly chair leg that needs fixing.

Dad will most definitely be delighted with this Truper Toolbox, the perfect companion for the man who likes fixing everything in the house.

For grandpa

Sometimes, you can’t help but wonder if grandpa’s chair is as old as he is. You can already feel the spring threatening to poke your backside as you sit on it. The stuffing is already showing itself from the corners. Since you’re getting grandma a new chair this Christmas, why not surprise lolo with a new one, too? Throw in a nice ottoman on which he can put his feet up while watching the evening news or as he is tuned in to his favorite sports channel. Check out this Beth accent chair and ottoman by Heim at Wilcon Depot.

For brother

An ottoman as a gift for your brother? It may seem like an odd idea at first but he would definitely thank you later for it.

Whether he needs an additional seating for his room or apartment, a footstool on which to put up his tired legs after a grueling football game, a stable surface for his drinks and chips, or someplace for his laptop or video game console, an ottoman is practical and useful. Heim offers a wide option of ottomans which will surely suit your brother’s living space.
