Last Minute Gift Ideas for Your Wife or Girlfriend from The Home Depot

The Home Depot GiftsYes, your favorite tool store does have great gifts for your wife or girlfriend!  If you are like me and do not want to fight the crazy mall traffic, this last minute gift guide is for you.  Everything is from The Home Depot and available online.  I have to admit, my wife helped me pick some of these items out, so the genius in gifts in this article come from her.  Trust me, you did not want me picking out gifts for your significant other.  I am great at picking out what Milwaukee impact wrench, Dewalt drill, Husky tool set, or Ridgid router, but most girls do not want that as a gift.  Let move on to what this is really about.

Last Minute Gift Ideas!

The first item on the list is something that anyone can use and enjoy! My wife enjoys baking with the kids, especially around the holidays. They make everything from Christmas cookies, cakes, and frostings to bread and mashed potatoes. This a very sturdy, and powerful mixer that doesn’t quit.  The KitchenAid Artisan 5 Qt. Metallic Charcoal Stand Mixer not only looks cool, but it has 325 watts of power.

My Grandmother had one of these and for good reason.  These have a great reputation and a lot of attachments to allow this unit to help you make anything from pasta to sausage.

  • Solid-state control provides speed adjustment
  • 5 Qt. stainless steel bowl features a handle for comfortable lifting
  • 20-cup capacity accommodates the ingredients for up to 4-1/2 loaves of bread, 9 dozen cookies or 7 lb. of mashed potatoes
  • 10 mixing speeds for flexible operation
  • 325-Watt motor offers powerful performance
  • Tilt-back mixer head design provides easy access to the bowl and beaters
  • 67-point planetary mixing action for good results
  • Pouring shield for your convenience

The next choice is the Cuisinart Electric Wine Opener with Foil Cutter. My wife enjoys a nice glass of wine and with this electric opener, she is able to easily open every bottle herself. There is no struggling to pull up the cork, no cork pieces floating in the wine and no corks pushed into the bottle.

This model is rechargeable, but they also make a model that takes two AA batteries.  Either way, you won’t be messing with corks anymore.  Sorry, but this is not a brushless motor model.  The tool guy in me had to say it.

  • Uncorks up to 50 bottles on one charge, recharges quickly with NiMH battery pack
  • Simple operation with two buttons: “remove” to uncork wine and “eject” to release cord
  • Stainless steel design looks elegant and wipes clean easily
  • Powers through synthetic or natural corks without breakage
  • Compact charging base takes up little space
  • Foil cutter included to neatly trim off foil seals, stores in charging base
  • Power/charge light indicates when power is low and when unit is charging

Up next is the Keurig K525 Plus Single Serve Coffee Maker.  My wife loves this coffee maker for so many reasons. Every cup is hot, fresh and ready in seconds. You can also choose a different flavor or different strength of coffee with every cup. She may drink a cup of coffee and not dring a second cup for an hour. She can make a fresh cup, every time.  She can also make a cup of hot chocolate or hot apple cider for the kids after being out in the cold. It is very easy to use.

Overall, this is a very popular machine these days, even in businesses because there is not a pot on the warmer that is burning.  The coffee for this unit is not very expensive either if you are willing to shop around.

  • K-Cup Pod brew sizes: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 oz. K-Mug Pod brew sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18 oz. K-Carafe Pod brew sizes: 22, 26, 30 oz.
  • 80 oz. removable water reservoir allows you to brew more before having to refill with Keurig’s largest reservoir option
  • 5 temperature settings: Choose from 5 temperature settings to customize your perfect cup
  • Strength control means you can brew your way – strong or regular – to suit your taste
  • Large Color Touch Display Screen

My wife is always cold, so the Lavish Home Cream Plush Croc Embossed Faux Fur Mink Throw is perfect. All winter, she covers up with a blanket when she sits down to relax. Even in the summer, with the air conditioner running she covers up every night.

This throw is very soft and priced well!  This is something that I was surprised The Home Depot carried.  We get so used to thinking of the store as the best place for tools and lumber, you never think they would have a soft blanket.

  • Pattern: croc embossed faux fur
  • Color: cream
  • Material: 100% polyester
  • Face material: PV fur
  • Backing material: mink
  • Dimensions: 50 in. x 60 in.

Yes, The Home Depot even has art.  Adding decor to our home is important, so here is a suggested piece that can go in almost any home or office.  The Amanti Art 42 in. W x 22 in. H “Old World Map” by Pela Studio Framed Art Print is a cool addition to any room.  My wife loves to travel, and this piece of art is a beautiful print that adds a wonderful reminder of how big and beautiful this world is and all the memorable adventures we have had over the years.

The best part about this piece is that it is made in the USA.  In fact, it is made in Wisconsin.  We like to buy things made in the USA so this print fit the bill!

  • Art is finished with gallery quality acrylic glazing, fade resistant inks, and is dry-mounted to prevent rippling
  • Frame: Mezzanotte satin black gallery 1 1/4 in. wood
  • Framed art is made using solid wood molding
  • Image dimensions: 19.63 in. H x 39.38 in. W, Outside dimensions: 21.88 in. H x 41.63 in. W

So there is no excuse for you not to have a wonderful gift for your significant other this year.  Go to The Home Depot’s Gift Guide area for more ideas or just use the search bar.  https://www.homedepot.com/c/home_decor_catalog
