Some stand outs this Christmas from The Home Depot, include:
oIf you are looking for Christmas ornaments, look at the NEW exclusive
Maestro Mouse Interactive Christmas ornament, which uses RFID technology
to play 24 voice-requested Christmas Carols that can be synchronized to
Christmas lights and turns the tree lights on or off. Just say the
commands and let the magic happen.
oNew, exclusive artificial Christmas trees offer features such as a foot
pedal on/off switch, low voltage LED lights that use 65 percent less
energy and are safer for inside the home, and pre-decorated trees from
designers, including Martha Stewart, that incorporate both modern and
classic decor trends and tastes.
oSeveral artificial tree styles feature EZ Shape branches that require less
effort to shape during setup. Also, The Quick Set Wesley Family of trees
have an integrated connection built into the center pole that creates an
instant electrical connection and allows the lights to come on instantly
in just three easy steps.
oFor customers who prefer live trees, The Home Depot, the largest seller of
fresh cut Christmas trees, offers in-store and online purchasing options.
Trees are available online at www.homedepot.com/holiday and can be
delivered to our customers' doorsteps. The tree is cut within 24 hours of
shipment to ensure freshness, and it ships for free.
oOutdoor decor options have also been expanded to showcase more than 40
exclusive sizes and designs of yard decor. The LightShow LED outdoor
lights give the illusion of shooting star icicle lights and gently
twinkling stars, creating a "Griswold" effect that a holiday decorator of
any skill level can achieve. Some Lightshow LEDs also come with an
integrated remote control that allows customers to do any of the light
show functions with the push of a button and sync up to 17 units.
oThe Home Depot introduced eight new styles of holiday gift cards,
including two new novelty cards. Customers can choose a Santa's Apron that
plays, "Jingle Bells," to the sound of a circular saw or a card that
features a Christmas village and comes equipped with a holiday puzzle. And
for a limited time, through a partnership with Someecards, The Home Depot
will offer Someecard electronic gift cards for purchase on
