This post is sponsored by The Home Depot.
Cristina Garay - tools for the diyer in  your life and giveaway

The holiday season is upon us which means lots of joy and cheer... And lots of Christmas shopping... Right? Well, that last part is not fun when not knowing what to buy. But hey, I'm trying to ease up that process a little bit by sharing with you some of the tools I love the most and that I know I'm going to be a perfect fit for the DIY'er in your life or hey, even for YOU too!!

As many of you already know, I'm part of a great team of influencers working for Home Depot reviewing power tools under the ProSpective program. They send us tools and our job is to work with them, show our projects and tell how was our experience with those tools.

Well, this year I decided to compile a Gift Giving Guide where I'm including the tools I've used and I've liked the most. Tools that I recommend because they are simply wonderful! 

Wait... There is some more great news... 

At the end of the post, as a thank you for being such a wonderful supporter of RemodelaCasa, you get a chance to enter to win a $100 Home Depot gift card. Two winners will be chosen exactly one week from now, so you can spend your money during those awesome Black Friday deals.

I divided this long list of tools into THREE sections:
  • Tools that are $50 and under - Great stocking stuffer ideas
  • Tools priced between $50 and $100
  • And tools priced between $100 and $200

There are many Best Sellers among these tools and many of them are already carrying wonderful low prices. --> Check them out!! >>>

My latest favorite, guys! And I didn't even know this type of jacket existed.
This heated jacket uses a lithium-ion battery to power it up.
It has 3 heat settings to customize the amount of heat you prefer.

It not only keeps me toasty when walking my Louie around the neighborhood or when working inside the cold garage, but it also comes with a USB Power Source that I use to charge my phone on the go!
I love this jacket, this is a men's medium size, which I like because I can have more layers underneath.

You place your battery in a side pocket, connect the cable in there, push the on power on the battery and then turn on the power to the jacket by pushing the button on the inside left side of the jacket and you're done.  Push the power button again, to change through the different heat settings.

WERNER 5-in-1 Telescoping Ladder 

Well, this might be the biggest tool on this list, but I couldn't leave it out!
These are the three main reasons why I LOVE this ladder:
  • It's lightweight - Contrary to a long ladder I had for years and that it's still there in the garage because I can never handle myself, this one is compact, and lightweight and I can bring it wherever I go, it even fits in my car!!
  • Its Multi-Position feature is wonderful. You not only get a straight 18' long ladder, but you get five ladders in one with 33 adjustable working heights and positions. Great for when working on stairs.
  • Strength. This ladder is well made. With 375 lbs. load capacity for Industrial Strength Performance, I'm not afraid to climb on it at any time.
