Home Depot is entering the holiday shopping season with a broad gift card initiative that includes rectangular plastic that double as DVDs and holiday themes. The pre-paid cards will feature 25-minute how-to-videos of home improvement tasks, like how to install a faucet. Graphics on the cards will flag one of seven do-it-yourself projects demonstrated by an employee.

Home Depot's gift card rack also will include Coca-Cola's Polar Bears. Once activated, the cardholder can redeem the plastic at the store for a free 20-ounce bottle of Coke products.
