What He Really Wants: Win a $100 Home Depot Gift Certificate

Shopping for dad can be difficult. Many men view gifts of clothing much the way women view receiving small kitchen appliances and cleaning supplies as presents– way too utilitarian. Practical gifts are useful, but they are not exciting.  

But who wants to waste money on frivolous things in this economy? Seriously….how many office toys and other useless junk does dad really need?

For a gift both exciting and practical, consider a Home Depot gift card.  My husband’s eyes light up when he walks into Home Depot. Walking through their aisles gets him thinking about all of the possible projects he could complete.   

At times…I don’t always see this as a good thing. I’ll always remember the day I came home from the grocery store to find a big gaping hole in my wall. But it does keep things exciting…and that gaping hole is now a beautiful built-in bookshelf.

If you are just a beginner or want to improve your home improvement skills before you follow my husband’s lead and start knocking down walls, you can take free classes both online or at your local Home Depot. Check out

So if you’re either a procrastinator looking for a great last-minute holiday gift or just in need of some gift-giving inspirations, consider buying a Home Depot Gift Certificate. You can find them at local Home Depot stores or online at with free shipping.

    The new Zune cute blue mittens free browser is surprisingly good, but not as great as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the internet browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet
    explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured
    I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!

    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers
