Fire Extinguishers - A Great House-warming Gift

by candy47

Fire extinguishers come in a variety of sizes, they go with every décor and never go out of style.

So you've been invited to a house-warming party, you want to bring a gift to celebrate the big occasion but you're stumped. Lots of ideas cross your mind...a fancy cheese basket with cheese board...a wine rack...a live, or artificial, indoor tree, and the list goes on. Fire extinguishers go with any décor, never go out of style and they come in price ranges for any budget. They're useful and probably won't get returned to the store.

Small extinguishers fit in a shoe box. I usually get large cardboard boxes from the dollar store or supermarket when they are unpacking inventory and stocking shelves. Those boxes are free!

candy47, What do you recommend for packaging the extinguisher and the pack so it's not so obvious what they are?

Good point blackspanielgallery. I will mention that in my next edit of the article. Thanks!

I believe some insurance companies may offer a rate reduction if certain objects are in the home, and this may be one of them.

That's me sheilamarie, I always like to give, and get, practical gifts!

I wouldn't have thought of a fire extinguisher as a gift, but you are right. Such a practical idea!

Neat idea! I like the little Firegone spray cans, too. Those look really handy, though the standard extinguishers would provide more of a feeling of real preparedness.

Everyone needs to have fire extinguishers handy. They do make good, practical gifts.
