5 Black Friday Deals No DIYer Should Miss Out On

With Black Friday coming up, everyone is searching high and low for deals that will make the season of gift-giving easier to manage. That’s why we’ve done a bit of searching ourselves to show you some of our favorite deals on items that would be perfect for anyone who loves DIYing and participating in their own home improvement projects.

Our list is not random, as we have good reason to point you in the direction of DIY renovation this holiday season.

The home improvement industry has seen some major spikes in recent months as the pandemic forces us all to spend more time at home than ever before. As people have begun remodeling kitchens and turning guest rooms into home-offices, they’ve started to also see the endless benefits of doing-it-yourself. The typical alternatives to DIYing your home improvements are not always comforting in a pandemic, as bringing teams of workers into your home isn’t exactly a social distancing protocol.

To put these spikes in DIY home renovations into perspective, we can take a look at home improvement stores like The Home Depot or Lowe’s. For example, The Home Depot’s sales have increased 25% to $4.3 billion while they’re also increasing spending by $480 million for their employees as things get busier. (CNBC) These stores are filling more orders than ever and undoubtedly offering some of the best deals out there.

Deals From The Home Depot

1)Drill and Impact Driver Set 50% off

There’s simply not a lot of drill and driver sets out there that match the quality of DeWalt for 50% off, so get excited. We’ve mentioned in previous stories the undeniable importance of owning an impact driver and drill. Just like Batman and Robin, these two can tackle just about anything you throw at them. So whether you want to replace a friend’s old set of drills or simply put a smile on someone’s face, this gift will get the job done.

2)137 Piece Home Toolset

Our list was much longer until we came across this deal from The Home Depot. Part of being a DIYer includes having the capability to confront any obstacle and confidently dive in. That’s why you can never go wrong with having all the tools you could ever need to tackle just about anything around the house. When you invest in a collection of tools like this, you tend to keep them around for a while.

Not only is this item spectacularly priced for Black Friday, but it will save you the hassle of buying tools sporadically over the years for each small project you encounter. Save some time, because time is priceless.

3)3 Piece Tool Bag

  • If you’ve been a hands-on homeowner for some time now, you’ve likely accumulated a few tools over the years. While some of us are naturally organized and neat with this sort of thing, others aren’t so lucky. Give the helpful gift of organization this year by offering someone a home for their tools, old and new.

Deals From Lowe’s

4)Cordless Leaf Blower and String Trimmer Combo

Keeping your home in tip-top shape means taking care of it both inside and out. Moreover, we want you to live in the future. Living in the future means all of your equipment is cordless and electric, that’s why we always recommend items like this leaf blower and trimmer or the drill and driver mentioned above!

5)9-Piece Car Care Kit

Being able to take care of a car is something less and less people are capable of handling nowadays. Keep the spirit of DIY alive by giving the gift of independence from overpriced car washes and oil changes. Save some money at the store and with the dealership this year.

We hope these deals are helpful this year and inspire you to give gifts that people not only appreciate, but gifts which help teach people the benefits of learning to do certain jobs yourself. Stay safe while shopping and make sure to share this with anyone who typically gets things wrong in the holiday gift department!
