How to give the gift of practicality over the holidays

Holiday presents loved ones can put to work

(Family Features) Giving the perfect holiday gift to a loved one can add unnecessary stress and pressure, but you don’t have to drive far and wide to find presents your friends and family members will love. Some of the best gifts are practical, everyday options that you know will be put to good use.

Look no further than your local hardware store. With 72% of United States households within 15 minutes of an Ace Hardware, you can find a wide variety of gifts to put smiles on loved ones’ faces whether you shop conveniently online or in person. As a one-stop shop for grills, power tools, home decor and more, knowledgeable associates are ready to help you find the perfect gifts for those on your list whether you’re looking for big ticket items or one-of-a-kind stocking stuffers.

For example, a new pellet grill may be the solution for the home chef who seems to have everything already, providing a simple way to prepare delicious meals any day of the week. Or, if you’re looking to help make outdoor cleanup a cinch, consider an option like a cordless, battery-powered blower to keep the yard, driveway and other spaces neat and tidy.
