The holidays have arrived! It’s time to deck the halls, light the menorah, hang the stockings and, if you haven’t yet decided what to get for your DIY home improvement enthusiast, the time is now! Here are some great gift ideas for every DIY home improvement enthusiast whether novice or expert.
Toolboxes come in two forms: permanent, large storage structures and small portable containers. Both are basically essential items for the DIY. If you’re not sure which type of toolbox to buy, take a look at the various tools that are lying around the workbench and in need of proper storage.
Ladders come in all shapes and sizes. If you’re not sure which one to buy, base your choice on the place where you live. If you live in a house with a yard, get a full-sized ladder. If you live in a condo or apartment with no outdoor work required, a smaller step ladder for indoor use should suffice.
3. Drill with Lithium Ion Battery
Lithium ion batteries are smaller than traditional drill batteries, which makes these drills lighter and more agile, perfect for regular use around the home.
4. Orbital Sander
Sanding sucks…until you own an orbital sander. Orbital sanders make sanding jobs easy, fast and even a little fun.
5. Pipe Wrench
Plumbing projects are all but impossible without the right tools, and pipe wrenches are a must. Even if your DIT owns a pipe wrench already, owning one of a larger or smaller size could come in helpful if your DIY does a lot of work with the plumbing.
6. Multi-bit Screw Driver
This multi-faceted tool can be a Phillips screwdriver or a flathead screwdriver, depending on the project. Having several types of screwdrivers in one tool can save trips back and forth to the toolbox.
PPE (personal protective equipment) like work gloves, a dust mask and protective eye glasses can help keep your DIYer safe from harm while he or she tears down walls, completes yard work and engages in a variety of other tasks around the home.
8. Tool belt
Tool belts come in handy when completing DIY tasks, and can be sexy when worn shirtless. This is a great gift for anyone who needs help carrying tools and for anyone who wants to look like one of the Village people.
9. Adjustable Wrenches
Adjustable wrenches are one of those all-purpose tools that basically everyone needs at one time or another. Even if your special DIYer has one or two wrenches already, he or she may still get use out of a wrench of a different size.
10, Jig Saw
Jig saws cut wood in all different ways. They can make cuts that are curly or straight, zig-zag or wavy. If your DIYer has no saw at all, this is a great flexible saw for him or her to own.
