PHOENIX -- Not finished shopping yet? Here are some affordable gifts that will make any homeowner's holiday merry:

-Give the gift of a "Smart Home." With home automation technology, you can use your smartphone to operate lights and fans (even while away from home) and add a dimming function to every light switch.

Dremel tools and accessories (multi-tip kit, pencil-thin attachment for small jobs, engraving tool, etc.)

-Combo drill sets. They are sold at The Home Depot at low holiday prices, and some sets come with freebies.

-Various flashlights, tools, levels, tape measures and holders, tool bags, tool sets, and tool chests.

The Home Depot has a large selection of gifts under $20. Many gifts are under $5.

Create your own kid-friendly toolbox with a lightweight tape measure, hammer, multi-purpose screwdriver, and a flashlight or LED head light.

Purchase a child-size workbench at The Home Depot and get a free apron for your child.

Home Depot also stocks gift cards for several restaurants as well as prepaid phone cards and Visa and MasterCard gift cards.
