Gift cards make the world go round, right? Lol. Well, here’s how you can buy those gift cards and still support local! This is my gift card mania! All price ranges, all useful, all something you may not have thought of yet! And all easy to wrap!
First up, who isn’t dreaming of summer right about now? Do mom and dad like their days on the golf course? Why not get their membership bought right now! TRA and Oakland-Riverside both offer memberships, just message them on Facebook for instant access.
Here’s one you may not have considered – what about carpet cleaning? If you’re like me with a concrete-stomping husband and a 6-year-old that leaves a trail of spaghetti, this is a great gift! L&M Carpet Cleaning in Oakland will hook you up!
Another great gift for anybody who loves their car – tokens to the local car wash! Check out Antique City Car Wash in Walnut, Riverside Auto Wash in Oakland, The Finish Line in Carson, or Rock ‘N Suds Car Wash in Treynor.
And while we are talking cars, what about auto detailing? Anderson Auto-Detailing in Shelby or Phase 3 Auto-Detailing in Oakland are ready to help you out!
Have family that visits? Why not get them a night at the AirBnB in Macedonia? The Macedonia House is ready and waiting!
Or if that family is coming to visit, it might be perfect time to get your spouse a gift card for wine! Prairie Crossing in Treynor and Breezy Hills in Minden are both known for award-winning wines!
And what goes better with wine than relaxation? Book that massage for them or get that gift card for after the holidays! Check out Ahh-spirations in Oakland, in Shelby at Bell Massage, at Massages by Monique in Treynor, or in Crescent at the Compassionate Wellness Center.
Of course, we can’t talk about massages without also discussing mani/pedis! Check out Polish’d Nail Spa in Avoca or the Polish Bar in Carson.
If you’re looking to give the gift of clothes, be sure to get a gift card to Blossoms in Oakland, Tillie’s Salon & Boutique in Avoca, or B Restored in Walnut. You can also get kids clothes at Iowa Kids Outfitter in Avoca.
Are they just in a new home? Give them the gift of furnishings! Amy’s Attic in Carson is perfect for it, so is Blossoms in Oakland, and The Granary Mall and Plum Krazy in Walnut have some fabulous stuff, as do a bunch of the places in Walnut! Décor and furniture are definitely their specialty!
Art is a great gift for the home, too. I can’t say enough good stuff about The Painted Camel in Macedonia!
Of course, you can’t go wrong with food! Gift cards to places like The Back Forty in Macedonia, Henry’s Diner in Crescent, The Dew Drop Inn in McClelland, or Garcia’s in Underwood offer a variety of options!
And speaking of food, there’s nothing better than a gift card to Minden Meat Market for some beef jerky or Hancock Meat Locker for some ribeyes or go all natural at Jon’s Naturals in McClelland! I feel like this is the perfect guy gift! (But I’d like it, too! Lol)
Then again, if we’ve learned anything this year, it’s that you always need a haircut! Support those local hair salons like Taylor’s Trims and Tans in Underwood or The Mane Attraction in Treynor!
Truthfully, there are a ton more places, too, but hopefully, this will get your started! If you have more questions, message us on Facebook! Shopping local is our forte!
Happy Shopping, Pott. Co.!
