It really depends on your situation. If all you want to do is leave everything to your spouse (or if you both go, to someone else) then the kits are fine, or a lawyer will be fairly cheap.

If you want to get super fancy, leaving specific items to a bunch of different beneficiaries, spelling out specifics of what the executor can and cannot do, etc... a kit won't do and a lawyer might be a bit more expensive.

And don't forget, the easiest way to deal with things is not to use the will, but to just have both spouses listed on every asset/account. That way if something happens to you and your wife feels the need to sell your house, she doesn't need to go through the legal process, she can just do it since her name is on the deed.
