Father’s Day is coming right up. So, what to get Dad this year? What to get Dad any year, for that matter. Why is it that us guys are so hard to buy for? Oh sure, there’s hundreds of dumb gadgets that fit the right price point and look clever in the department and discount stores, but they’re really not worth it. Dad will say thanks, because, well he’s a dad and that’s what we do. But what he’d really, rather have is at Ace Hardware!
Let’s face it, Dad’s a guy and guys like tools. Where better to send Dad than to see the helpful folks at your local Ace Hardware store then! Yes, of course, Ace Hardware has many, many items on sale this week for dad. I won’t go over them all here, but here are a few highlights.
Get Dad a new ladder. Not just any ladder, but a cool ladder. Ace stocks telescoping aluminum ladders by X-Tend & Climb. These collapse down to around 2’ and extend up to 12’. They’re sturdy and super convenient to store and transport. They fit in the back of an SUV with ease, no need to tie them on the top. The same goes if he happens to be stuck driving the mini-van! Even better is an articulating Little Giant ladder. These adjust to many heights, many shapes and will keep your dad safe as he tries to do those odd chores around the house. Safer than reaching way off of a step ladder or standing on some sketchy platform! Gee, that makes this sort of a gift for Mom as well, then!
While Dad’s up on his new ladder, he could use some new power tools. Ace has plenty of tools to please any dad, including the best from DeWalt, Milwaukee Black & Decker and more. Even better yet, bring Dad in and let him see the line of Stihl power equipment at many Ace stores. Chain saws, trimmers, blowers, he’s certain to find something that he’s wanted to add to his garage collection!
After Dad’s done working, let him relax in his new hammock! Ace stocks many styles, including fun new styles from Eno hammocks. Great for camping, backyard, beaches anywhere Dad wants to grab a quick nap. Trust me, we love our quick naps! After he wakes up, he can grab a cold drink from the new Yeti cooler you got him. Not only Yeti, but some stores are now stocking coolers from Otter Box. These are all heavy-duty coolers that keep drinks cool for days and can even withstand an old, um, slightly overweight dad like myself sitting or standing on them!
Dad’s gonna be hungry and of course he likes to stand over the fire and cook his dinner. It’s a guy thing, hunting, gathering, fire, cooking. Goes way back. Like way, way, way back! Ace has gobs of accessories for his BBQ and tons of sauces and spices to choose from. He can come up with more new flavors than he can shake a stick at. Yes, Ace also has sticks, just in case he takes that literally!
If you’re still stumped, get Dad the perennial favorite – an Ace gift card. He can then come in and have our helpful folks get him just what he wants, when he wants it! Tell Dad that Brad Nale here is celebrating Father’s Day with him, thanks for being a great dad and no, you didn’t get him another tie this year! You went to Ace, the Helpful Place!
