Five Unconventional Valentine’s Gift Ideas



Valentines Day is approaching, and visions of flowers, chocolates and strawberries are being paraded in front of our consumer eyes. Why not try something outside the box this Valentine’s Day? Your local neighborhood hardware store has a few ideas that can help you change it up this year!

1. Go Big with Big Green Egg

It’s true, a Big Green Egg is kind of a big purchase and may not be on your radar for a holiday like Valentine’s Day. But! Right now we are running a special promo rate on a limited number of Eggs that will be used as demos at our EggFest coming up next month. Yep, you will pay the discounted rate, someone will cook on the Egg at EggFest, and you take it home after the event! With savings up to $340, depending on size, it’s worth thinking about if your Valentine has been wishing for a Big Green Egg.

2. Let Him (or Her) Choose with an Ace Gift Card

Face it, dudes like utilitarian gifts. More charcoal for his grill? Yep. A tool you didn’t know he needed? Uh-huh. That Mrs. Meyers dish soap she feels is too indulgent to buy regularly? Check. Let your Valentine choose their own prizes this year.

3. Make Your Own Beer Kit

Who hasn’t exclaimed, after trying some weak, bitter beer, “I could make better beer than this!”  Throw down the gauntlet with this kit to create your very own batch of craft beer at home.
(Full disclosure: we only have a few of these left in stock, and once they’re gone, they’re gone!)

4. Yeti, Yeti, Yeti

Have we mentioned before that we’re big fans?  Everyone loves to keep their coffee hot and their cold drinks cold. We don’t just carry the tumblers, we also have t-shirts, hats and other swag. Ladies- Let him buy you a purse, you get him a murse! He’ll never fuss about how much you packed for the beach with the Yeti Hopper on his shoulder. Fun fact: the Hopper 20 can hold 18 cans of beer.

5. The Ultimate Honey-Do IOU

Has he/she been asking for a new shelf over the washing machine? A chalkboard wall? Fresh coat of paint in the guest bathroom? Nothing is more romantic than a spouse who listens. Surprise your honey with a card telling them you’ve heard their requests, and you’re ready to deliver. And let Dot’s help you with supplies 😉
