Day 12 of 14: DIY Valentine’s Gifts for your Sweetheart finds our writers discussing great Home Depot products or projects for gift ideas. In today’s edition, Ayana explains that it’s the color that counts, and Thomas gives us the scoop on what’s red at The Home Depot.
Red is definitely on display at The Home Depot this Valentine's Day
Ayana: Red is definitely the Valentine’s Day color. That means that, as long as it’s red, just about anything can make a good DIY Valentine’s gift.
Thomas: You can find many DIY items on homedepot.com that are available in red. Take for example the Milwaukee’s 18V Red Lithium Ion Compact Drill. It comes with a dual red lithium-ion batteries, charger, drill and carrying case. You can have your Valentine do LOTS of projects around the house with this as a gift.
Ayana: That sounds like a good gift, but I don’t know how he’d feel about the honey-do list that would come with it. He’s been asking me to add some color to the house. I thought painting his office would be a nice surprise. Maybe a grayish blue with a red accent wall. He’d love that.
Thomas: That is a great idea! I found Behr Premium Plus Blue Willow, an interior flat paint with a gray-blue tint that would be perfect. Pair it with Glidden’s Red Geranium, a brighter/darker shade of red that would liven up any office for sure!
Ayana: And if you want to go all out, get your DIY sweetheart those Milwaukee brand tools and add the DeLonghi Nescafe Dolce Gusto Creativa Single Serve Coffemaker in red. Who doesn’t love sipping on gourmet coffee throughout the day. It would complement the office decor perfectly.
Editor’s Note: If men are from Mars, and women are from Venus, how can you choose the best Valentine’s Gift for someone on the other planet? Our DIY Valentine’s Gifts series highlights 14 great Home Depot gift ideas for your sweetie.
