If you’re struggling this holiday to think of a creative and thoughtful gift for that one friend who’s an avid DIYer, here are some simple ideas for gifts that most any DIYer would appreciate any day of the week.
It can be difficult to buy a specific gift aimed at a DIYer, especially because they’ve probably amassed a pile of tools already. But as a DIYer myself, there are still plenty of simple gifts that we appreciate and would get a lot of use out of.
Consumables: Always Welcome
While DIYers will often have all the necessary tools for getting projects done, those projects still require materials that you have to buy over and over again, like nails, screws, glue, towels, sandpaper, and more.
Scott Shop Towels would make for a great gift in this category, and I go through these like a person with a nasty cold goes through tissues.
If you know a woodworker, they could always use more wood glue, and Titebond II is my go-to glue for all my wood projects.
If you have a mechanic in your life, you can’t go wrong giving them a box of nitrile gloves. I personally like these from Throttle Muscle, which have a grippy texture on them that helps prevent slippage with oily components.
