Holiday Shopping with Home Depot

I am honored to be sponsored by Home Depot for this post.  All opinions are 100% my own.

My family and I shop at Home Depot often.  By “often” I mean the other day I asked my three year old daughter what she would like for lunch and she replied, “A hot dog from Home Depot.” We went this past weekend and had a shopping list in mind. In particular, we were looking for these items for my brother. If you don’t know my brother, I can best describe him as a cross between Martha Stewart and MacGyver.  He can construct, bake, sew, cook, you name it.  He’s a creative genius and Home Depot is the perfect place to find him a gift or three.

Our Shopping List:

Home Depot was extremely busy two days after Thanksgiving but we DID get some special help from Richard and Ray.

Richard personally took us around the store and guided us in the right direction and quickly among the hustle and bustle. Many of the gifts on our list could be found in the gift center.

This is my daughter who was VERY happy riding in the car shopping cart collecting all our items.

My husband and I looked over the five items on our shopping list and decided on three of them. Here is another photo of my daughter once again overjoyed to find the right gift items for her Tito (uncle).

We decided on the Ryobi One Plus Cordless Brad Nailer, the Husky Rolling Tool Tote, and the Husky Mechanics Tool Set . My brother is most deserving of all these things and I can’t wait to give it to him.

I had difficulty deciding how to wrap such large items, so I wrapped the Brad Nailer and the Tool Set in wrapping paper and they both happen to fit PERFECTLY inside the Rolling Tool Tote. I then thought that I should make my own bow for the top in a few easy steps.

Here are the full step by step instructions on how to make a large bow out of ribbon. It turned out quite nice!

I wrapped some ribbon around the rolling tool tote and placed my homemade ribbon on top.
