Shopping Early and Sparking Joy

Getting a head start on holiday shopping and finding the perfect holiday gift is as close as your neighborhood hardware store.

Holiday celebrations may look a little different this year as many families consider staying closer to home and having smaller or online gatherings. Because of this, people are opting to do their gift shopping earlier to avoid crowds and allow plenty of time to ship presents to their friends and loved ones.

If you have a dedicated Do-It-Yourselfer, first-time homeowner or aspiring BBQ grill master on the Nice List this holiday season, neighborhood hardware stores are a great place to find the perfect gift. From power tools and eco-friendly leaf blowers to BBQ grills and tasty sauces and rubs, it’s like a visit to the North Pole!

However you choose to celebrate this year, Westlake Ace Hardware suggests these fun and festive gift ideas to help you get a head start on holiday shopping. And to make it even easier to quickly and safely stock your sleigh, they offer lots of help ways to shop – from ordering on a handy app and home delivery, to online ordering with free in-store and curbside pickup.

For the BBQ Grill Master

Help the BBQ grill master in your life discover the joy of griddle cooking this year with one of the new and versatile Blackstone Flat Top Griddles. Perfect for cooking everything from Christmas morning pancakes to supper around the campsite, the griddles can do everything you can do on a grill and more. From portable models to four-burner units for the patio or deck, Blackstone Flat Top Griddles are available in three sizes:

  • 36-inch/four burner
  • 28-inch/two burner
  • 17-inch, single burner (table-top model shown)

BBQ experts are passionate about their tools, sauces and rubs. Surprise them this year with a Blacksmith Hawg Lifter – an oversized tool specially designed to help pick up entire briskets, butts, and other large cuts of meat. Traeger Sauces and Rubs are favored by BBQ lovers everywhere for their wide range of flavors, and priced between $9.99 and $12.99, they make perfect stocking stuffers.

For all BBQ grill purchases of $299 or more, Ace Rewards Members can take advantage of free assembly and local delivery of their grills – just in time for Christmas morning!

For the Do-it-Yourselfer

Spark some joy for the Do-it-Yourselfers on your list with a new cordless, rechargeable power tool. DeWalt 20 Volt MAX Lithium-Ion drills, multi-tools, and compact circular saws are legendary for their reliability and versatility. An economical and ideal gift for a new homeowner, the Compact Drill and Impact Driver Kit helps first-time DIYers easily tackle most drilling and driving jobs.

If your DIYer has a green thumb, loves yard work, and is on the “Nice List,” treat them to an EGO leaf blower, string trimmer, or chainsaw. All EGO products offer the same power and durability as gas-operated products, but there are no emissions and they share an interchangeable, rechargeable lithium battery pack. In fact, the battery pack can be used to power more than 50 EGO tools. The versatile Leaf Blower and String Trimmer Kit includes two powerful tools, one convenient battery pack, and endless possibilities for tackling the toughest lawn jobs.
