Home Depot has deployed their Holiday 2023 gift center tool deals, both online and in stores.
Most of these tool deals will be featured in Home Depot’s Black Friday sales flyer, and a few are sure to sell out well before then.
Based on past experiences and quick thoughts on pricing, most of these deals will remain at the same price points throughout the holiday shopping season. A few are destined to be discounted in a couple of weeks.
Let’s talk winners and losers.
The biggest winners are us, customers. Yes, it’s cheesy, but this time of year offers the BEST deals on the broadest selection of tools and accessories. There are deals for everyone, from beginner DIYer to seasoned PRO.
That said, here’s a quick summary of what you can expect for Home Depot’s flagship tool brnds:
Dewalt – This year’s selection features new Atomic drill and impact driver kits, a couple of new hand tool kits, new and returning power tool accessory deals, and deals on select ToughSystem tool boxes. There’s an emphasis on PowerStack battery deals and tool bundles.
Milwaukee – The hand tool deals are slightly expanded, the power tool accessories are a bit different and focused on Packout-compatible cases. There are more M18 free bonus deals than in previous years, and there was a large FORGE display in the main aisle. Of course there are some Packout deals too.
Makita – The teal branded lost out on floor space again this year, with few displays featuring the same deals as in previous years. They had XGT tools in the main aisle – 2 outdoor tools and a combo kit, at higher pricing than last year, and with 1 less free battery offering.
Ridgid – There are a couple of cordless power tool deals, and an emphasis on Ridgid’s benchtop and portable power tools such as a table saw with rolling stand.
Ryobi – This popular DIYer brand had about the same amount of floor space as last year – a lot – with strong presence of 18V HP+ brushless tools. There was considerably less space given to the Ryobi USB 4V Max line of DIY and hobby tools than last year.
Husky – I didn’t notice any new Husky tools aside from a screwdriver set with comfy-looking handles. Not visible in the above photo, there’s a bay dedicated to Husky tool bags and the new Build-Out tool box system.
The main aisle had similar brands as the main gift center, with deal bundles and special buys by Milwaukee, Dewalt, Ridgid, and singular displays by brands such as Stanley, Zircon, and Kreg.
There was a large Diablo floor display, with mostly the same deals as in previous years. That’s not a bad thing – this is always a good time to stock up on power tool accessories.
The same Crescent tools made an appearance as last year, but I didn’t see the typical Crescent Wiss aviation snips display.
There’s a lot to go through – I’ll be talking about and analyzing many of these tool deals over the next few weeks.
I feel that, as usual, Home Depot’s holiday tool deals seem skewed towards mid-price point DIY and PRO grade tools and accessories. There are some entry priced deals as well, but not as the main focus.
