Best Christmas Gift Ideas for DIYers

Ok, the economy is in the tank. Entry level Christmas trees have gone from last year's $19.95 to $29.95. Enough with Wall Street and the bloated auto industry, are we going to have to bail out the holiday festivity industry as well?

Let's hope it doesn't come to that. But whichever way the wind blows from now until Santa flies, people will buy Christmas presents. The question is what?

Hand Tools, Anyone?

I may not know a silk tie from a Garmin, but I do know tools. And what better to give a DIYer than a gift box of hand tools? Real estate is not moving just now, so it makes sense to fix up the home you've already got.

This is actually a good time for this because the big box stores like Home Depot usually put up some good sales. Internet gift shopping is also big this holiday season.

Baby, it's Cold Outside

I know a lot of you are already into the snow. I kind of remember what that's like from the time I was stationed in Maine. Not so here in South Texas. It was in the low 60s yesterday. Brrr. Hey, but it's a humidity-infused chill, OK?
