Got that friend or family member who does everything for themselves and is SO difficult to buy for? We’ve put together our top 10 gifts for the handyman, full of gadgets and tools which will excite and amaze them this Christmas.
1. Pocket Multi-tool
For the friend or family member who has everything – give them all they could need in one handy tool! This multi-tool has pliers, scissors, a can opener, a knife, a blade… anything you can think of, it has it. All the components are locking, keeping it safe to use.
Don’t want to splash the cash? Why not check out this beautiful wallet friendly version. It features a rosewood handle and stainless steel blade.
We stand by that sugru might be one of the coolest products out there. It’s a moldable glue, which makes it super versatile. It can be used for anything from fixing fraying wires, creating a holder for your cords or even fixing together broken objects. The opportunities are endless!
3. Leather Tool Belt
This split suede leather belt with contrast stitching and six different pockets is not only incredibly useful, but also looks pretty fantastic. It features a quick release button for ease of use, and a spot for all your most used tools, including a leather loop for your hammer and a pouch for pliers (or perhaps for a handy pocket multi-tool…)
For a more wallet friendly version, this split grain leather bag is equally stylish and around half the price. It has a heavy steel hammer holder and multiple pockets.
4. Flame torch
Let’s be honest… if you get someone a flame torch (especially if that someone is male) they’ll probably be pretty excited about it, and we can’t blame them. As well as being a cool thing to own and great conversation piece at dinner parties when someone asks how you got the Crème brûlée so crisp, they can also be super useful – for you know, actual handyman stuff! Small soldering jobs around the house will be sorted in an instant.
5. Digital micrometer
5. Magnetic wristband
If your handy friend or family member is also a little clumsy and constantly finds themselves losing things they need around the workshop, why not help them out with a magnetic wrist band? This straps around your wrist (so it can’t be lost!) and can be used to store little items like nails, screws, and drill bits.
6. Drill holster
This split leather drill holder features two pockets, and is suitable for most small and medium cordless drills. Not to mention, it’s pretty stylish too!
7. Work light
For those who just want something practical for Christmas, this work light should do the trick. It’s made from a sturdy steel frame, and is foldable for practicality. It gives off a cool, bright light that should put a stop to any strained eyes.
For a wallet friendly version, this aluminium light features a protective grill and an adjustable stand.
8. Laser Distancer
Everyone wants something with ‘laser’ in the name, and this is actually a useful tool too, so it’s a win-win! This little tool provides ease and accuracy in measurements, saving time and reducing the chance of human error. Don’t worry, we have a wallet friendly version too.
9. Knee pads
Whether old or young it’s important to protect your knees when doing jobs, for comfort as well as health! These knee pads provide great protection, have a hinge for ease of movement, and will prevent the constant searching for pillows.
10. Laser Level
Photos always go on the wall wonky? Spirit leveler just not doing the trick? Take it a step up by giving this laser level. This projects lasers onto the wall, allowing the user to do everything from aligning tiles to putting wallpaper up with ease.
