A early Christmas + a GIVEAWAY for a 5 piece RYOBI Tool Set!


eek!  I’m so excited to host this giveaway for one lucky winner to receive or give as a gift!  It’s a complete 5 piece tool kit with RYOBI tools + a Lithium ONE + battery!  But before you scroll down to enter – look & see what my husband received for a gift.

Christmas arrived a little early for my husband this week with an awesome gift from Home Depot & Ryobi.  My husband was thrilled with his gift.  He’s a tool/toy junkie & he loves any kind of cordless tool there is.  But he/we were in need of a light weight heavy duty blower.  We live in an older home & our neighborhood is filled with lots of charm & lots of leaves from mature trees that drop a TON of leaves.  The leaves are everywhere right now!  He needed something he could take up on the roof to blow the leaves off, that wouldn’t be too heavy & be able to do the job.  So…

He received the Ryobi Earthwise 18V Cordless Lithium Blower.  I honestly had no idea the Lithium batteries were so lightweight!  I am constantly complaining how his tools are so heavy for me to use.    But not the case with the RYOBI tools!  Here are some interesting facts about these tools:

*The Lithium Ion Batteries are lighter in weight, allowing for smaller, more powerful outdoor and power tools. – Just what we needed!

*Lithium Ion is a technology that started in power tools in the home improvement sector and now crosses over in additional categories such as outdoor, paint and flooring.  The battery’s technology provides with a number of advantages over traditional NiCad battery-powered tools.

*The RYOBI  ONE+ system offers more versatility, value and performance for DIYers and pros on a budget.  The Home Depot has over 50 products that are compatible with the ONE+ system.  Drills, saws, outdoor power tools, and all other types of tools use the ONE+ battery.

When it comes to husbands or significant others, you can’t go wrong with good quality power tools for gift giving!  Because you definitely don’t want to be on the bad gifter list!  Here’s some tips to hit the nail on the head when it comes to gift giving this holiday season:

Even if you are still unsure on what to get in the RYOBI tool section, The Home Depot has gift cards!  That’s a guarantee of a gift your receiver will LOVE!  In fact, The Home Depot has partnered with someecards for design styles of gift cards to give.  You can even design your own style, if you like.  Here are a few examples of someecard *gift cards* that are hysterical!

And this one below, is perfect for me to give to my husband for a stocking stuffer!  I want to update our kitchen so badly!  Wonder if he would get the hint?  😉

For info on anything The Home Depot has to offer you may visit their Facebook Page, or on Twitter.

    I would so love to win this prize. I need these tools but have been saving up for them. we are a military family and can only do so much at one time. this would be an awesome Christmas present.

  2. Jessica says

    I would love to give this gift to my husband! As fairly new homeowners, we don’t have a lot of the everyday tools one might need for home repairs. This looks like it’d be pretty handy!

  3. Nikki Wood says

    I would keep them! Just made a list of things to do before I turn 30 and redo a piece of furniture is one of them. These would be awesome for that! Great giveaway!

  4. Bridget says

    I’m not sure if I would keep these as a gift to us (both my husband and I), or if my father-in-law would get them as a gift. Either way, it would be amazing! Great giveaway!

  5. Rebecca Monce says

    It would go under the tree with my husbands AND my name on it :) Really it’s a double treat for him because he likes seeing girls use power tools 😉

  6. says

    Hey, this is the first time I have been able to enter a website. I just joined Origami Owl and and very excited. I fell in love with the jewelry just from a photograph and a look on their website. Take a look, you might be as excited as I was. I think scrapbook lovers will love this as well. Anyway, I have folllowed Flamingotoes for a while now, and Bev lead me here! So far, I love your site.

  7. says

    OMG this is amazing! I’m a DIYer who doesn’t own any power tools and something like this would really help me to create even more! I’ve always wanted a set like this and would love to win!

  8. Cristen K says

    It would be a gift for both of us. We are in our first home and trying to make a lot of things around the house (and repair a lot of things around the house) and we have no tools! This would be wonderful!!!

  9. Melissa C. says

    I would keep the tool set for myself. I am constantly perusing ana-white.com for furniture plans and it would be awesome to have new tools to build with.

  10. Denise from Savannah says

    Would love to win this and give it to my son, who just got his own home. He needs some tools! Thanks and I bet your hubby loves them! Merry Christmas to y’all.

  11. Deborah C says

    I would give the set to my husband whose tools are dying and in need of replacing. He is working on several projects for gifts, so it would be real good timing.

  12. says

    I’m single and I would keep this wonderful set for myself…..and my brother in law would be so happy…..everytime I need a tool…I have to go to his house and use his…..being disabled, making my crafts is how I make ends meet….and OMG….I would feel so blessed!

  13. Shelby N. says

    I would give it to my husband — he would LOVE this! It’s his birthday Christmas day, and our 5th anniversary on Dec 15th, so I could use something awesome to give him this time of year!

  14. Veronica Emge says

    I would love to be able to give this gift to my Mr Man… although I would probably use them more so than he…
    But it’s the thought that counts right?…hahaha

  15. Meghan S. says

    This is an amazing giveaway! This is what my hubby wants for Christmas, but he was laid off last month and I am not sure if I can afford it this Christmas! It would be amazing if I won this for him to brighten his holiday!

  16. Katie N says

    Yahoo for power tools! I think I would keep them for myself but share them with my neighbors and family whenever they needed them. I would love to have some portable power tools! There’s nothing more empowering then when women use power tools!

  17. rebecca t says

    Both – I would be gifting it to myself! haha Seriously though my husband thought it was hilarious that I had a sander and a reciprocating saw on my Christmas list.

  18. Teresa says

    well, as much as the boy loves thinking about using tools and cutting wood, thus far it’s me doing the actual work so I’d give it to him with the full knowledge that I’d be holding that drill in my hand far more often than he.

  19. Mary Furber says

    I would love some new toys – I mean tools – for Christmas. I do the repair work at my house, not the husband. PS.

    The RaffleCopter DOESN’T EVER LOAD on Kindle.

  20. Wendy N says

    I would definately keep this set for myself. My husband has tools of his own, and it would be nice to have some of my own. Although I am sure I would share them, since he does let me use his, and he does a lot of fixing, making, and cutting for me!

  21. says

    No hubby, so it would be for Me! I LUV to shop at Home Depot! Now, I usually get some smiles and a few stares when I go there, because I use a wheelchair. I can spend HOURS in there. I dream of being able to design my own home and decorate every inch and item of it! Fun Fun Fun

  22. Alicia Chesebro says

    I’d give it to my dad for Christmas. He is FINALLY about to retire after years and years of owning his own business and working a ridiculous amount of hours each week and getting so little sleep. He would deserve it and more. I hope I hope I win. What an amazing early retirement gift this would be for him!!!

  23. Lora (Howard) Wells says

    Being in the middle of a divorce and living on an extremely limited income, as much as I’d love the tool set for myself, I’d probably end up giving it to my son for a Christmas gift.

  24. Kathy Ashenfelter says

    I can tell you I know two or three men in my life who would be ecstatic to have these tools. I have a son and son in law who are just starting to collect tools for their homes and honey do lists! I would be more than extremely grateful!

  25. Linda says

    Wow, this is a terrific giveaway! I would probably give the set to my daughter, the handywoman. She’s loved tools since she was a little girl. I’d love to keep them for myself, but I can’t get around much any more. Thanks for the chance to win.

  26. Penny Kitzmiller says

    I don’t want to be like this but I would have to keep it for myself!!! I really could use it right now considering I am trying to remodel my downstairs. I want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas!!!

  27. drue hartwell says

    Keep or give, that’s a hard one. I’d probably use it more than anyone else in my family (I’m a woman in construction), but it sure would be fun to surprise someone else.

  28. says

    I’d give it to my hubby, but that’s just as good as winning it for myself! I’m dying to start some DIY building projects! Thanks for the “manly” giveaway! I don’t see those very often.

  29. says

    As much as I would love it, I’d give it to my daddy. We’re both in professional theatre, but I’m a designer, and he’s a technical director. He builds sets and would definitely put it to good use!

  30. says

    Ahhhhhh!! I can’t believe you’re giving this away–fantastic! IF I won (and I can’t imagine that…), I’d split the gifts among the men in my life–my husband, FIL and two brothers. My sons don’t *quite* need their own power tools yet.


  31. Ashley says

    I would surprise my hubby with the tools that he doesn’t already have and then give the rest to family members for Christmas! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win such a great giveaway.

  32. Tim says

    I would keep it for myself. All my current tools are old, so i could certainly use the upgrade. The only downside is that it will take away any excuse I have to put off the honey-do chores I have let accumulate.
