SKIL_18V_4_KitWomen, this holiday season, vengeance is ours! (You know, because Christmas was ushered in with gifts of gold, mir and retribution. I like to keep things traditional.)

I doubt I’m the only lady out there who has opened a gift on Christmas morning that was household chore-focused. One year, the guy I was dating gave me oven mitts. And the next gift I unwrapped from him? I kid you not – vacuum filters. VACUUM FILTERS. You know what I had given him? Tickets to an NBA game. Yeah.

If your current spouse has ever gifted you with such a useful, practical, hateful present – it’s time to return the favor with the SKIL 18-Volt 4-Tool Ni-Cd Combo Kit. Guess who’s getting to those little projects around the house in 2010? Mwahuahahrry Christmas!

The SKIL four-piece set includes an 18V 2-speed Drill / Driver, an 18V Orbital Jigsaw, an 18V Multi-Finishing Sander and an 18V Pivoting Head Flashlight – all cordless and lightweight. The kit is a perfect gift for the novice handyman, new home owner and DIY newbie in need of the basics. The set contains just one 18V battery that you would shift from tool to tool as needed, but additional SKIL batteries are available for purchase separately, starting at $49.97.

But the funny thing I’ve found about giving men tools like this is that they don’t view them the same way I viewed my Christmas oven mitts. They’re actually *happy*. Pleased. Excited. Proud, even.

Well, don’t let that stop you.

It’s really win-win in the end – you’ll get to see those projects get completed and he’ll think you care about his happiness and manliness. And the best part is the value. The SKIL 18-Volt 4-Tool Ni-Cd Combo Kit is now available for a wee $59 at Lowe’s (pricing has fluctuated, so please check with Lowes before sprinting to the store)! You really can’t get a better deal than that.
