Whether you’ve started your holiday shopping or not, gift-giving can be a lengthy and daunting process. With the overwhelming amount of products and gadgets on the market today, it is enough to make your head spin. While we don’t deem ourselves as professional gift-givers, we do know a thing or two about the needs and wants of our beloved homeowners.

Here is a list of 12 trendy and useful Christmas presents that will put a smile on every homeowner’s face:

1. Tilestiles app

Hey, it happens. You’re rushing from the car to the door with a million things in your hand and somehow along the way you’ve misplaced your keys, wallet, etc. Save the endless searching through bags, and retracing your steps and look on your tile app! Place your tile square on your key chain or in your wallet and it will GPS track them at all times! Talk about stress-free!


2. Smart Bulbs
