Don’t Get ‘Tied’ Down to Tradition This Father’s Day

It’s a well-known fact that ties of all shapes and styles are the traditional ‘dad’s day’ gift year after year (after year). But as business casual office attire becomes more and more acceptable, ties are becoming a tired option for holiday gifting.

Last month, we managed to get mom what she really wanted when we talked about Mother’s Day gifts from your local Ace Hardware store. Why in the world should ‘pop’ be any different? Show him you care with a new hand or power tool!

New power tools keep featuring the latest innovations and high-tech options that dads love. They have all the bells and whistles that make them great ‘guy gadgets.’ Sure, they may look like a regular old hammer, but there’s more to them than a rubber handle and a metal head. Estwing’s Sure Strike hammers and Stanley’s Anti-Vibe hammers are both great options to replace dad’s worn-out model.

If dad’s do-it-yourself projects are limited to where he can find an electrical outlet, expand his horizons with a new set of cordless tools. A cordless drill and saw combo kit from DeWalt (Ace no. 2064814) is a fantastic set of high-grade tools from a trusted brand name.

There may be nothing wrong with dad’s old grill, but imagine how he’d feel cooking out on a brand new Weber model with all the bells and whistles? Sometimes you can’t beat the taste of a steak cooked on a charcoal grill, like one of Weber’s One-Touch models. If the ease of use and snappy cleanup of a gas grill is more up dad’s ally, give him the ‘gold standard’: a Weber Genesis Gold B stainless steel propane grill (Ace no. 8186710).

Not sure just what dad needs this year? Ace Gift Cards are always a sure bet. Available in amounts from $5 to $250, bring dad into your local Ace store and let him spend to his heart’s content.

Get dad something he can really use this Father’s Day! If you have additional questions about home improvement – even creative gift giving – ask the helpful folks at your neighborhood Ace Hardware store or feel free to e-mail me at
