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
    www.homedepot.com/giftcards.
