Keep their ears protected from loud sounds while operating power tools, leaf blowers and mowing the lawn with a set of noise-cancelling earmuffs. Trick them up a bit by looking for a set that features Bluetooth connectivity so they can pair them with their smart phone and listen to music or answer calls, too.
If they’re a fan of music on the work-site or out in the shed, they’ll love a quality radio! Features to look for include a durable casing, Bluetooth connectivity, battery and 240v power options, plus a USB port so they can charge their phone on the go.
- Spray gun
Have they been talking about doing a few painting jobs around the house? Make it easy for them to get started with a DIY paint sprayer. Choose a model to suit their tasks (small, medium or big!) and look for easy-clean features to make cleaning up a breeze.
- Pressure cleaner
Not just for cleaning the driveway or deck, high-pressure cleaners are great for cleaning loads of surfaces around their home. Plus, they’re super handy for keeping the car, boat and caravan sparkling, too!
- Tape measure
Perhaps they’re new to DIY? They’ll need a quality tape measure – it’s a must-have! Just choose a length that will suit the tasks they plan to get up to, but also consider the weight of the tape measure and how easy it will be for them to use.
- Tool bag
If their tool collection is growing and growing, gift them a tool bag to keep the lot neat, tidy and organised. Seek out a bag stitched up from durable fabric, a model with lots of pockets and something lightweight to begin with.
- Power drill
Start off their power tool collection with a cordless drill. Go for a drill that meets the demands they require and perhaps choose a few standard attachments to bundle with the gift. A spare battery is handy, too!
- Tool boxes
When their stuff is taking over every surface in the shed, it’s time to drop a hint and get them organised. Sturdy plastic or metal toolboxes with lots of compartments are great for getting their gear in order. Plus, they make the lot easy to transport.
