Bloomfield, CT December 3, 2008 - Practical gifts are on the rise this season, as consumers look to make the most of their money during tough economic times. The pressure of the widespread economic downturn is forcing many consumers to choose between purchasing gifts for their loved ones and investing in their own desires, including home improvement projects. Nevertheless, Tail of the Lion, Inc., the largest network of cabinet hardware stores on the internet is one of many internet retailers that expects to see an increase in consumer interest in useful products this holiday season, as consumers make a conscious decision to exchange more functional gifts and to help their loved ones get the products they might otherwise sacrifice in order to afford holiday gifts.

"We're expecting to see an increase in practical gifts this year. As economic conditions are forcing people to be more conservative with their money, it's becoming more acceptable to give gifts that also enhance the value of one's home, even things as mundane as cabinet hardware," says David Mason, CEO of Tail of the Lion, Inc. "Cabinet hardware offers homeowners a tremendous bang for their buck, allowing them to update the look of their kitchen for a small fraction of the cost of building a new one."

Although most consumers probably never thought about it before, purchasing home décor and home organization products such as cabinet hardware and closet organizers in lieu of standard holiday gifts can help loved ones increase the worth and enjoyment of their home. And, with thousands of decorative cabinet pulls and knobs available online for under $3 each and dozens of cabinet and closet organizers available for under $50, helping friends and family revamp their home is easier and more affordable than ever.

Shoppers can avoid spending time and money shopping at crowded brick-and-mortar stores by finding the perfect practical gift online. When shopping at any Tail of the Lion, Inc. specialty cabinet hardware store, consumers can also enjoy free samples that will enable them to test out the look of their favorite items before presenting them as gifts. Free shipping on qualified orders saves consumers additional money that can then be used for other gifts or applied to their own home improvement projects.

"There's no question that cabinet hardware and home organization products are designed to provide years of reliable and enjoyable use," says Mason. "Why over-spend on a gift that will break quickly or become obsolete, when you can purchase a gift within your budget and provide your loved ones with something that they'll treasure forever?"
