Sometimes it’s easy to forget that home improvement stores offer more than just paint, wood, and ceiling fans. They really are home, garden, and lifestyle super stores – and the products beyond those double doors are absolutely perfect for gift-giving.
For the men in your life, yes. But also for the whole family.
FOR HIM: How about a Weber Original Barbecue Apron ($9.99) + matching Barbecue Mitt ($6.99)? This rich, espresso-colored apron and mitt is constructed of a sturdy, stain-resistant canvas that is both attractive and practical. Exclusively designed for Lowe’s, this set is sure to be a good pick for any barbecue master.
FOR HER: The gardener and backyard maintainer in the family will appreciate receiving a brand new pair of razor sharp shears like the Fiskars’ 10″ Bypass Powerlever Hedge Shears ($21.98). Sturdy, sharp, and comfortable to hold, these over-sized scissors will help her prune bushes and trees with ease. I’d have a picture of me using the shears, but my husband tends to do most of the “shearing” around here. Who is the landscaper in your family?
FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY: For athletic and outdoorsy families, consider the 12′ X 12′ Midnight Blue Canopy Quik Shade ($225.71). The shade is lightweight, easy to assemble, and provides ample shade for sporting events, backyard picnics, and other outdoor festivities. For entrepreneurs, it also doubles as a great booth at community fairs and business expos.
FOR THE CHILD: Give the gift of time/interaction and take your child to a Build and Grow Clinic at your neighborhood Lowe’s (FREE!). The monthly clinics are designed to teach skills and nurture parent/child relationships. On November 21st, you and your child(ren) can build a wooden snowman that doubles as a gift card holder. Is your schedule already booked for this weekend? No worries. Sign up to build a festive gingerbread house on December 5th. Both workshops are held on Saturday mornings at 10am and run for one hour. Be sure to reserve your spot online or by calling your local store.
