We live in a small town in Indiana, and one of the hottest gifts for any occasion (graduation, wedding, anniversary, birthday, etc) is a gift card to The Home Depot (check out the website at http://www.homedepot.com/holiday). This year I had an opportunity to not only discovery why it’s such a great place to shop, but also to share it with you! If you’re following me on Twitter (and if you’re not, please do!), you may have seen my #FiestasHomeDepot posts on Sunday – that was when I did my shopping trip, and it was fun!
I found a ton of gifts for everyone on my shopping list. I focused mainly on gifts under $20, but there were a few that were a bit more expensive. And I was super excited because I was able to find something for everyone on my list this year! I’d love to share with you what I found:
- I love the poinsettia plants! I especially loved one that I found in a snowman pot – my mom loves snowmen, so this is a perfect gift for her.
- I also found adorable snowmen stocking hangers that would look awesome on the behind-the-couch table that she has in the living room!
- My mother-in-law, who is perpetually cold, loves hand warmers. I usually get her some every year, but today I found a pack with 10 pairs! Jackpot!
- My son and our grandmothers all have a similar interest – birdwatching. I love the selection of bird feeders that I found at Home Depot, and so will they.
- When you think of Home Depot, do you think of kids? Well not only do they have free kid’s programs the first Saturday of every month (next month at our local Home Depot they’re making orange sheds! And the kiddos get a free apron, pin and certificate for completing the project!), but they also have neat items like the Toy Story flashlight I found that my son will positively flip over.
- I also found perfect gifts for our dads – Maglite flashlights, DIY books and magazines to help them find their perfect net projects, and some awesome storage shelves that I was hoping to find for my father-in-law – he’s a super couponer with an awesome stockpile.
- For my sister-in-law, I wanted to find something that she could use when she moves out and into her own apartment. I thought the Emergency Sensor Light that will turn on when the power goes out and can be used as a flashlight.
- I also have 3 siblings in high school, and I think I found the perfect gifts for them – First Aid kids as they start driving (scary!) and party lights in different colors.
- For stocking stuffers, I found some neat little screwdrivers that hold 2 bits in the handle and little flashlights – so I bought some for everyone!
- For my husband I bought a flag. With the last name of Liberty we just have to have a flag! And our last one was torn up in a bad storm, so it’s something he’ll enjoy.
- Another thing my husband will love is this really neat thermometer I found that suction cups on the outside of your window so you can see the temperature without going outside.
- I even found something for myself – a shelf with collapsible storage bins from the Martha Stewart collection. It’ll go in the toy room, so technically it’s for the kids, but I’m the one who will enjoy the clean toy room!
We had a great shopping trip – and my husband’s favorite gifts were the organization and storage gifts. In fact, he wants to go back and get the storage shelf that we picked out for my father-in-law for us too!
Oh – and one more neat fact – you can get eGift cards for the Home Depot! The recipient just prints it out and can use it in the store or online! You can even do a video gift card with a customized message from you, and the Home Depot is the only major retailer offering that!
