Some stand outs this Christmas from The Home Depot, include:
— If 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.

Connect The Home Depot’s Maestro Mouse holiday ornament to any lit Christmas tree and he will play 12 voice requested Christmas Carols and put on a synchronized light show. Visit www.homedepot.com to see him in action.

— Outdoor decor options have also been expanded to showcase more than 40 exclusive sizes and designs of yard decor. The LIGHT SHOW 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

— The 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.
