We all have those people in our lives who are impossible to shop for — which makes the holiday season a whole lot more complicated. And if you want to get all the loved ones on your nice list something really special this year, another gift card or kitchen gadget just won’t cut it.
Luckily, you can’t go wrong with the gift of peace of mind — and like a “Jelly of the Month Club” membership, these home security gifts will keep on giving well after the holiday season ends. Here are some ideas to help make your holiday shopping a walk in the park (or a stroll through a snowy winter wonderland).
Security Gift Ideas for Anyone on Your List
These home security gifts will help anyone feel safe and secure wherever they call home.
Ring Alarm Security Kit
Your loved ones worked hard to turn their spaces into a sanctuary where they can relax, unwind, and get away from the outside world. And with the addition of a Ring Alarm Security Kit, they can know that everything’s secure at home, whether they’re in the kitchen whipping up a batch of cookies or across town running errands.
After adding a few Contact Sensors to their windows and doors, mounting their Motion Detector, plugging in the Base Station, and connecting everything to the Ring App, the people on your gift list will be set. They’ll be able to check in on notifications from many locations, set different Alarm Modes, and even get some add-ons like enrolling in Ring Alarm Professional Monitoring with a Ring Protect Pro subscription or a Flood & Freeze Sensor.
With a Ring Video Doorbell, your loved ones will always know when someone’s at the door, so they can run downstairs to pick up that special delivery or check in on their phone to see who made an unexpected visit. Plus, they can even spread a little extra joy to the most important people in their lives, from saying hi to the kids when they get home from their first day back after winter break to playing helpful messages for visitors when they can’t get to the door.
Gifts for the Homeowners Who Need to Simplify Their Routine
If you have a friend or family member who’s always scrambling to make it to school pick-up, whip up dinner, grab groceries, or put their little one down for a nap, you can help take a few things off their to-do list. With these smart home upgrades, they won’t have to worry about flipping switches or fumbling for keys:
Safety Gifts for the Night Owls in Your Life
If you know a night owl who never seems to come home until after the sun goes down, you can help brighten their night with outdoor lighting.
Pathlights and Steplights can create a clear, well-lit path to the door when they arrive home after ringing in the New Year or watching their favorite hockey team beat its rival. And with a Ring Bridge, they’ll be able to set automations and control the lights with their Ring App, so they never have to arrive at a dark house.
The Best Safety Gifts for Pet Parents
Fluffy the tabby cat and Milo the husky mean the world to your friend — and they’ll do anything to see that their fur babies are happy and safe. You can help by gifting your friend a security camera or two this holiday season.
If your friend gets separation anxiety from their pet when they’re at the office, an Indoor Cam can let them check in on their phone. They’ll be able to see Fluffy curled up on her cat tower and even say hi using Two-Way Talk. Or, if they need to make sure Milo doesn’t sneak under the fence when he gets tired of chasing toys in the backyard, they can check in on his play session with a Stick Up Cam.
