Home Depot is one of those shops that appeals to every guy: the handyman, the gardener, the landscaper, the cook, the builder.
When we went shopping there this morning, my husband immediately became distracted by the long aisles of products that seemed to beckon him.
I like the store well enough, I suppose. But it certainly doesn’t make my eyes light up or my toes tingle.
That’s why my husband volunteered to serve as your “personal shopper” this Christmas. Well, sort of. He perused the store/website and came up with some excellent guy-approved picks for your consideration.
Without further adieu, I bring you another edition of gifts guys REALLY want…all items that are under $50.
General Tools Mini Infrared Thermometer ($49.95)
Featuring a “rugged, pocket size design with built-in laser sighting,” this little thermometer will take accurate temps in mere seconds. He’ll be pointing and “shooting” that red laser beam at everything in the house in seconds after pulling it out of the stocking. And I can guarantee he’ll show off this gadget to all of his friends with pride.
Zircon Studsensor Stud Finder With Wirewarning Alert and Spotlite Pointing System ($19.97)
Need to hang a picture up in your house? Take the hassle out of that project with the Zircon Stud Finder. With an easy-to-read display and the ability to find metal studs up to 1 1/2 inches beneath the surface of walls and ceilings, this is a practical (and affordably priced) stocking stuffer that won’t go unused. For example, if I take it and aim it around our house, it lands right on my husband – he’s such a stud (HA!).
Xantrex Compact Power Inverters ($34.99)
I don’t really know how to explain this succinctly, but my husband assures me that guys want this. “By plugging the Micro Inverter 175 into a vehicle’s lighter socket, users can conveniently recharge and run electronic devices such as cell phones, camcorders, laptop computers, and more.”
Home Depot Gift Card (available in denominations between $10-$500)
Let him decide what he wants. But YOU can have fun picking out the gift card. Home Depot has some of the most creative gift cards that I’ve seen out there for Christmas. Choose a card that looks and feels like duct tape, a card that smells like gingerbread and can be decorated with stickers, or a card that looks just like a paint color sample card.
Home Depot has it all! Well, almost. They really need a comfy seating section with couches, magazines, beverages, and a kids play area…for the moms and kids who venture into the store with their spouses.
Then, little ones won’t end up running “fast” through the aisles or “resting” on aisle shelves. Not that my little beauty would ever do that. I’m just saying…
