At the Lowes near me, almost all the router bits have a 1/4” shank. I really try to avoid 1/4” shank bits. They break too easily.

As Don says, Bosch and Woodcraft bits are okay, but stay away from the 1/4” shank.

If it were me, I would use the gift certificate for the disposable items you are always using up (e.g. sandpaper) and/or their Kobalt line. In general, I think the Kobalt brand is pretty good stuff at a reasonable price.
