Happy Hardware Holidays

From the chef on your list to your favorite furry friend, finding the perfect last-minute gift may be as close as a trip to your local hardware store.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Dec. 14, 2021) – The holiday season is in full swing, and if you survived
Black Friday and Cyber Monday but still haven’t found the perfect gift for that special someone, you
need to look no further than your local hardware store for inspiration.
Whether your special someone loves to cook, is a do-it-yourselfer, regularly explores the great
outdoors, or has four legs and is covered in fur, Westlake Ace Hardware suggests these perfect surprises to slip under the tree.

The Chef Extraordinaire: Hot and fast is how you cook a truly great pizza – and nothing does it
better than the new Ooni line of pizza ovens. All models heat to an ultra-high heat of 950°F and cook incredible pizza in only 60 seconds. Ready right out of the box, set-up of this portable tabletop pizza oven couldn’t be easier. Just flip open the legs, insert the stone baking board, connect the propane, and you’ll be enjoying a perfectly crispy pizza crust with a decadent, chewy middle in no time.

The Plant Lover: Few flowers capture the spirit of the season like the amaryllis. Easy to grow and available in striking hues of red and classic white, gifting a pre-potted amaryllis bulb is an affordable and memorable way to surprise The Plant Lover in your life.

The Adventurer: Perfect for hiking, camping, just hanging out in the park or on the patio,
affordable and portable Kanga coolers are designed to keep drinks cold for up to seven hours
without ice.

The Commuter: Yeti 20-ounce Ramblers and Brumate 12-ounce Hopsulator insulated tumblers are
ideal for morning commutes, road trips, taking the kids to school – or anytime you need to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. For when The Commuter returns home and wants to unwind, give them an Orca eight-ounce “Chasertini” stainless steel cocktail cup – a fun way to keep their favorite libation icy cold.

The Lawn Care Expert: If you have someone on your “Nice List” who loves yard work, treat them
to a battery-bowered 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 all products share
an interchangeable and rechargeable lithium battery.

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.

The Furry Friend: The four-legged members of the family bring us so much joy. Whether they’ve
been naughty or nice, show them they’re special with a new bed, a tasty treat, or a fun toy to celebrate the holidays.
