If you’re an avid Christmas fan, you’ll already know the effort it takes to decorate your home in an array of twinkling lights for the festive season.

In fact, some people find the job so arduous that Airtasker recently revealed a NSW parent was offering $200 for someone to put up their Christmas lights on a two-storey house.

That’s why one mum was joyously surprised when she got a letter from Bunnings rewarding her for her light display.

The woman, who is a mum to three children aged six, five and three, said Christmas is big in their house but they decided to put in a little bit extra effort with the light show in their house this year.

“Having Christmas lights out and driving around looking at everyone else’s brings the kids and I so much joy,” she wrote on a Bunnings Facebook group.


“So receiving this in an envelope in our letterbox really made me smile. Our Bunnings moved to the new industrial estate a few kms away a couple of years ago and I love it.”

She uploaded a screenshot of the letter she received from Bunnings, which read: “Thank you for brightening our area with your amazing Christmas lights. Your display has brought great joy to many of our team members so we would like to say thank you with a voucher. We all hope you have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

People online commended the hardware store on their “heartwarming gesture”.

“Such a small thing to do for them, but such a great effort at customer service! Well done Bunnings,” oner person wrote.

“Wow, how lovely of them,” another person said.

Others couldn’t get over how amazing the woman’s house looked, after she uploaded an image of it all lit up.

“Your house looks beautiful,” one person wrote.

“Sooooo pretty, well done and well deserved,” another said.
