If you haven’t started gift shopping for the holidays yet, you aren’t alone. With so much vying for our attention these days, it’s no wonder that buying gifts gets put on the back burner. And, while there are still several weeks left until Christmas and Kwanzaa, they’ll be here in the blink of an eye. We’re here to help with ideas for everyone on your list. What’s more, we’re open on Saturdays now, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. AND…we now have the option for you to shop online for a selection of some of our most popular items.
For the home decorator
Know someone who is a whiz at making their home look especially beautiful, both inside and out? We’ve got metal cut-out letters and numbers that could be painted (or left plain black matte) to create unique sayings or as home address markers. Of course, that’s not all. We’ve got more themed and whimsical cut-outs that work indoors or outdoors, gate scrolling and caps, and we’ve even got kits to make a metal fire pit.
For the gardener
Come find the materials to put together planter boxes that can be decorated with any of the line of paints and patinas we have in stock. Do you know someone who has a resolution to improve their yard and landscape in 2022? We’ve got lawn edging that may seem like an unusual gift, but may thrill a recipient who has curb appeal on their mind. Or, how about garden stakes and decorations like our sunflower kit and metal butterfly?
For older generations
We’ve found that our Project Genius® brain teaser puzzles are especially popular with older generations. Not only can the puzzles be solved individually, but they are great to work on together with someone else. Grandparents tell us they enjoy sitting with their grandchildren to solve these beautifully-made and challenging brainteasers.
For kids and teens
Adults often reminisce about building models as kids. Even today’s kids want to take a break from screen time to challenge themselves and work with their hands. We’ve stocked our shelves with more than 60 different Metal Earth® model kits, (and you’ll find a smaller selection of five of our favorites in our online shop) many featuring popular culture themes including Star Wars, Star Trek, Justice League, Marvel, Harry Potter, Batman and Dr. Who. In addition, there are dinosaurs, insects, vehicles, ships, aircraft and architecture. For models that are in the moderate and challenging categories, it’s a great opportunity for older and younger kids (or adults and kids) to work together to assemble.
For car, truck and trailer enthusiasts
If there’s someone in your life who loves to tinker with vehicles, you’ll be able to surprise them with a great gift from our shop. We’ve got diamond plate, D-rings, straps, ball and hitch kits, receiving tubes, base plates and more that can be used for work in the garage. Come talk to us about their latest vehicle project and we’ll help you find just the right materials put under the tree.
For the artist and crafter
For the creative spirits on your list, we’ve got so many items to choose from. Whether it’s a hobby they already pursue or one they might like to start, you’ll find just the right gift. Our shelves are loaded with Sculpt Nouveau® paints, patinas and coatings that can be added to take any project to the next level. Our ImpressArt® metal stamping kits and accessories are very popular. With a basic kit and blanks, your gift recipient can make personalized jewelry such as bracelets, necklaces and rings. We’ve also got kits to put together a working lamp and more.
For the make-it-yourselfer
Put a bow on some raw materials and you’ll be the favorite gift-giver this holiday season. We’ve got the materials and tools that might be just what someone who loves to create things with their hands has been looking for. You’ll find baseplates, 4’ and 10’ structural shortcuts, small metal pieces, scrap metal, among many other materials for the home workshop. Our customers turn raw metal into beautiful, functional pieces, like these side tables. Give a gift that will inspire the recipient to create something special.
