Shopping for dad can be difficult. Many men view gifts of clothing much the way women view receiving small kitchen appliances and cleaning supplies as presents– way too utilitarian. Practical gifts are useful, but they are not exciting.
But who wants to waste money on frivolous things in this economy? Seriously….how many office toys and other useless junk does dad really need?
For a gift both exciting and practical, consider a Home Depot gift card. My husband’s eyes light up when he walks into Home Depot. Walking through their aisles gets him thinking about all of the possible projects he could complete.
At times…I don’t always see this as a good thing. I’ll always remember the day I came home from the grocery store to find a big gaping hole in my wall. But it does keep things exciting…and that gaping hole is now a beautiful built-in bookshelf.
If you are just a beginner or want to improve your home improvement skills before you follow my husband’s lead and start knocking down walls, you can take free classes both online or at your local Home Depot. Check out www.homedepotclinics.com.
So if you’re either a procrastinator looking for a great last-minute holiday gift or just in need of some gift-giving inspirations, consider buying a Home Depot Gift Certificate. You can find them at local Home Depot stores or online at www.homedepot.com with free shipping.
