Q: I’m a big fan of your column and would like to include a couple of plumbing-related gifts this year. Can you suggest some fun plumbing gifts I can surprise two of my special handy homeowner friends with for the holidays? — Teresa, Missouri
A: Now that more and more plumbing products have gone high tech, some plumbing fixtures do make fun and practical gifts. I recommend plumbing gifts that are priced reasonably and easy to install.
Here are two electronic fixture gifts that come to mind.
• Wireless speaker showerheads
These special showerheads let you play your favorite music or podcasts while you’re taking a shower. When done, you can even remove the wireless speaker from the head to take it on the go.
• Air freshener toilet seats
When seated, the built in air-freshener system activates to help neutralize odors. Now that’s a holiday gift that’s heaven-sent.
