Gift Ideas for Your DIY Dad

Equip your own personal handy man with the right tools so he can enjoy his DIY. Here are some gift ideas for all capabilities, whether your DIY dad is just starting out or already a master.

Hammer and Spanner

These seem obvious, but they’re some of the most basic and versatile tools every DIY beginner needs. Make sure to get a claw hammer so nails can be pulled out as well as hammered in – especially good for fixing those early mistakes! A spanner is a must for any starter toolkit, but for more versatility why not go for a socket set.

Socket Set

A socket set is a great space-saving idea, as you’ll have all the spanner head sizes you could possibly want but only a few handles so you’ll always have the right size. Never again will there be a nut or bolt too big or small, plus a ratchet is usually included making it even easier to tighten and undo them. There are a wide range of socket sets available to suit every budget and level of expertise, from small portable sets for the beginner to massive advanced sets for the expert – so it’s a truly versatile gift!

Power Drill

This is a brilliant entry-level power tool to get started on some bigger projects, from putting up pre-fabricated shelves to having a go at building your very own! Power drills allow you to tackle the toughest of materials so no project is too big or too small. If you go for a corded drill, or other corded power tools, it may be worth investing in a residual current device, which will cut the power and prevent electrocution if you accidentally cut through a cord.

Screwdriver Set

A screwdriver set is a great gift, as even though he might already have a few screwdrivers there’s always a job that calls for a size you don’t have! That way he’ll never have to make-do with the wrong screwdriver size again, and even the simplest of jobs becomes so much easier.

A Toolbox

This is a fantastic gift as your DIY Dad will finally be able to keep all of his tools in one place rather than in a muddle in a drawer – no more fumbling about trying to find the tool you want! If he’s an aspiring DIY master but is yet to get started you could even include a couple of tools to form the start of his very own toolkit.
