5 Funky Holiday Gift Ideas Involving Concrete, Meriden, Connecticut

The holiday season is fast approaching, and the crushed stone and concrete professionals from The L. Suzio York Hill Companies in Meriden, CT, want to thank all of their customers for another successful year as one of South Central Connecticut’s leading concrete aggregates. They know life isn’t all about work, which is why they’ve compiled a few fun holiday gift ideas for you.

If you’re struggling to settle on the perfect gift this season, here are five funky gift ideas involving concrete:

  • Stepping Stones: Custom concrete stepping stones can be a wonderful addition to any yard or garden. Try creating a circular mold, then pour concrete into it and decorate your stones with whatever design you like. Great ideas include pressed leaves, pine cones, or a custom greeting.  
  • Plant Stand: Looking for a durable gift that’s both functional and modern? You can create a concrete plant stand using a bucket covered with concrete as a base.
  • concreteConcrete Candle Holders: Making a few concrete candle holders is a great way to create an inventive gift. Simply use an old coffee can or Pringles container as a mold for your concrete. Once it dries, it’ll be the perfect candle holder.
  • Updated Countertops: If you have a loved one who’s always complaining about the outdated countertops in your home, concrete countertops might be just the thing to breath new life into that bathroom vanity.
  • Table Top: Tired of staring at that old chipped coffee table on the patio? Designing a concrete table top can be a great way to update it.
