Do you know someone who loves to DIY and would appreciate tool gifts? You’re in luck because today’s gift guide features the best gifts for DIYers.
I’m really excited about today’s guide full of the best gifts for DIYers. It is at the heart of what Logan and I do – renovating! Lord knows that since we’ve been renovating, we’ve gotten our fair share amount of tool gifts as we’ve been working on building out our inventory of tools.
The reason I think the best gifts for DIYers are tools is that your gift will actually get used! There’s nothing worse than buying something for someone and not knowing really if they will like or use it, right!?
We’ve learned so much over the past few years as we’ve been DIYing our way through fixer-uppers. Last year we wrapped up our first fixer-upper and found our second.
Since we’ve become experts at this whole DIY thing, I thought I would create a guide full of tool gifts for DIYers. In this guide, we’re sharing some of the products that we couldn’t live this DIY life without.
Whether you are cutting carpet as your rip it out or slicing drywall off a wall you are tearing down (two things that we've actually used this utility knife for), you need a good utility knife in your pocket at all times! This one flips open and works great.
Having a good clamp around can solve some major last-minute crises that come up during DIYs...heck, to be honest, we used one of these to keep our dishwasher shut while it was running in our old house for about a year before we had time to fix it!
You never know what's going to pop up during the joys of home ownership, craft projects, and other DIY mishaps.
You'll never know when you need to keep something in its place. These clamps can be a lifesaver.
This little hidden gem is a major DIY hack. This pencil attaches to your shirt and it's always there when you need it.
How many times have you been right in the middle of holding that tape measure in place with one hand and looking around the room frantically looking for something, anything, to write with? For us, it was happening way too much.
Even if Logan remembered to put a pencil resting up in his ear or tucked into his hat, we'd set it down somewhere and it wouldn't be there when we needed it.
When you're using the retractable pencil it just goes right back up hanging off your shirt when you're done, ready for next time. This makes it a great stocking stuffer for the DIYer!
This is where you really need to know the DIYer you're buying for. If they are picky, like most ladies and gents with their power tools, they have probably decided on a brand and line of cordless power tools to invest in.
To get the most out of these tools, they need to all be in the same "tool family". That way you can quickly share battery packs with all the power tools you own.
For us, it's the M18 line from Milwaukee. (18 stands for 18 volts).
If you are wondering what to buy for someone who DIYs to go along with tool gifts, you need to find out what brand and system they have and grab them some extra battery packs for their stocking.
They will certainly be much appreciated! Nothing is worse than having a battery go dead right when you are in the middle of working on a DIY project.
Last, but not least, is perhaps the most important tool on this list of tool gifts - the cordless drill. We've probably used this every single day during our renovation for one thing or another. It's very compact and lightweight, which I love. But also powerful and gets the job done!
It's also a part of the Milwaukee M18 family.
You'll definitely want to find out what brand and system of power tools the person you are buying for has before making this purchase.
If you’ve got someone on your holiday shopping list who loves to DIY, tool gifts are a great go-to option! These tools are versatile and would be appreciated by anyone doing tons of different types of renovating!
