Gardening For Not-Quite Beginners

Best Gifts To Shop For At The Hardware Store

Looking for a gift for a friend or loved one? Online stores are a good place to start, but there are plenty of places that offer similar items nearby. Shopping locally helps keep businesses stay afloat throughout the year. One place to stop? Your local hardware store. From garden supplies to specialty gifts, they are sure to have exactly what you're looking for. Here are some interesting gift ideas that you can find at the hardware store

For the Gardening Buff

Visiting a home improvement store to search for a gift is perfect for the gardening buff in your life. These stores offer an array of outdoor garden items and supplies that any gardener would love. Gardening tools, lawn ornaments, and wind chimes are just a few ideas to get you started. Things like bird feeders and garden pond kits are also at the top of many gardeners' wish lists. These items are in abundance at most hardware retailers. Instead of a flower bouquet? Try a houseplant or pot of blooming annuals as an added bonus.

For the Home Improvement Enthusiast

A trek to the hardware store will mark off everything on a DIY lovers to-do list. While a gift card would be a wonderful choice, there are plenty of things to add to your cart to take home and wrap up for a friend. A pack of paintbrushes and paint edgers is a good gift for those who always love to change up the color in their homes. Step it up with a power air sprayer so they can get big jobs done much faster. Power tools for both inside and out are also great gifts and are perfect for those who tackle those weekend projects that include building a deck or a new dog house. 

For the Pet Lover

Pet parents can find just about everything they need at the hardwood store. From pet clothing to a pampered spa set, there is something a furry companion would love. Pet leashes, collars, bowls and pillow beds, or any item that is pet-related is perfect for those who love to pamper and spoil their little fur babies. These items are popular at many home improvement stores across the country. 

The best part about shopping at a hardware or home improvement store for a gift is it's a one-stop-shop. You can stack multiple gifts and get exactly what you are looking for at a great, competitive price. Don't forget to pick up something really cool, like a new cooler or grill for yourself while you're there.
