Everybody has their weakness. For some people, it's coffee; for others, it's clothing. For me, it's The Home Depot. I'll admit it. I want to buy EVERY. SINGLE. THING at The Home Depot. Am I alone on this? Seriously. If there are others like me lurking out there, let me know if the comments so I don't feel so freakish.
If you know (or are) someone like me, here's your guide to Home Depot gifting this year. We pulled together twenty-eight of our favorite power tools and home improvement accessories, and I think you're going to like every one of them (I know I do).
Here we go…
These handy tools cost under $15:
If I could, I'd have one of these on every floor of my house, one in my everyday bag, two for the garage, and one in the glove compartment. So useful, and compact.
Pictured above. A good screw driving set is essential, and it's helpful to have one that comes in a compact case. Otherwise you end up with a million bits strewn about, and never able to find the one you need (star bit!!!!)
3. Husky Locking Pliers Set (3-Piece) – $10
A locking pliers is like a second set of hands. Or prehensile feet, I guess.
Two utility knives + 50 blades for $14.88 = a seriously awesome deal.
8. Husky 15 in. Tool Bag – $13
Pictured below. Extra storage is always appreciated.
This is one of those things you don't think you need until you have one, and then you wonder how you went without.
11. BESSEY 90-Degree Corner Clamp – $10
Make square glue-ups infinitely easier by keeping your parts perfectly perpendicular
Some Nicer Tool Gifts Under $40:
No one wants to look for adapter and an appropriate socket every time you need to tighten a hex head bolt or nut. Grab a set of these, and be ready to go when you need it.
Get furniture-quality cuts from a contractor grade circular saw by opting for the right blade for the job.
14. Coast FL65 Alkaline LED Headlamp – $20
Who likes raking leaves? Absolutely no one. This straightforward tool makes the job go quicker, and its a whole lot more enjoyable to use.
16. Canvas Band Wood Watch – $20
17. Bosch 65 ft. Laser Measure – $39
Pictured above. Surprisingly useful in spaces larger than a standard 12' tape. Once you have one, you'll find plenty of uses for it.
18. RIDGID JobMax Oscillating Kit (14-Piece) – $39
Often, the greatest gift you can give a DIYer is saving them a trip to the store. This oscillating tool combo kit means you'll have the right blade when you need it at 10:30 PM on Saturday night.
Gifts to Splurge on – $40 and Up:
19. BESSEY 50 in. K-Body Parallel Jaw Clamp – $45
This is the best clamp money can buy. Any woodworker on your list will be happy to get two of these for every holiday season to come.
Preserve the bounty of the garden and make your own trail food. So! Much! Potential!
The best jigsaw known to humanity. Yes, it's pricey. Yes, it's worth it.
22. Kreg K4 Pocket-Hole System – $100
Make rock solid joinery in no time with the flagship pocket hole tool. Once you have one, you'll find dozens of opportunities to use it.
One tool and two bases makes this one of the most versatile tools in the shop.
25. Milwaukee M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Compact Brushless Hammer Drill/Impact Combo Kit (2-Tool) – $300 (BONUS: Comes with Free Tool or Battery)
Every DIYer wants one of these, but many might find it hard to spend the money on themselves. Give them a true gift they'll use for a lifetime.
27. Nesco Vacuum Sealer with Bag Cutter – $54
Save money and quit wasting food by vacuum packing your own meat, game, and leftovers.
Pictured above. All the Dremel anyone could ever want (and if bought individually, would be about $330!).
