Gift Buying Guide. Top 10 Gifts for DIYers.

We all know a DIY enthusiast who is always hard-working with home improvements and creative projects and for whom it is impossible to buy a gift. Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered!

While they were busy planning the next significant home improvement, we were busy curating a list with gift ideas perfect for every DIY enthusiast. Below you will find a list of our Top 10 Gift Ideas for DIYers suitable for every budget.

1. Combi Drill

Combi drills are perfect for the home user as they offer great versatility. Most combi drills have hammer settings that give the drill both an impact and rotational force. Thus, they can be used for drilling and screwdriving into an extensive range of materials, making them suitable for various applications and allowing you to switch from one task to another quickly.

One of the best combi drills on the market is DeWalt’s DCD796 Combi Drill, fitted with 2-speed XR brushless motor that averages 50% longer runtime than its predecessors. It has a high-speed transmission system ensuring a longer life span for the machine and an integrated LED work light to help illuminate the work area and improve accuracy. We love this drill, and it is a favourite with many of our customers as well, a tool kit essential indeed!

3. Garage Organiser

Many of us struggle to accomplish having a tidy and organised garage. This one room in your house often serves as a parking place for your car, workshop, and storage room. Sealey’s bin storage systems are the perfect solution for a messy garage; they are suitable for storing nuts, bolts, screws, or small components.

4. Socket Set

A must-have for every mechanic, socket sets are used to easily loosen, tighten, or remove multiple types of fasteners. There are many different shapes and sizes of nuts and bolts; thus, there isn’t a socket set prone to offer accessories for every size of fastener you might come across. However, our range of socket sets provides a diverse selection suitable for multiple applications.

6. Work Gloves

A quality pair of work gloves is always a good gift idea. Safety gloves are developed according to industry standards depending on the risk level. There are safety gloves against mechanical risks (DIN EN 388 standard), cut protection gloves (EN 388:2016 standard), gloves protecting from chemical risks (DIN EN 374 standard), safety gloves against thermal risks (DIN EN 407), gloves protecting from cold (DIN EN 511 standard) and safety gloves with electrostatic properties (DIN EN 16350:2014). Of course, there are different types of gloves depending on the material they are made from, including cotton gloves, latex gloves, leather gloves, Kevlar gloves, and much more. Cotton gloves offer minimal protection, while Kevlar gloves remarkably resist cuts and abrasions.

*The safety standards mentioned above are European.

7. Head Lamp

A reliable head torch makes a fantastic gift for a DIYer. Not only because it is handsfree and gives them great flexibility while working, but also because they can use it for other activities in their free time. For example, the Lighthouse Elite LED Sensor Headlight is rechargeable, has a sensor light, and has a maximum run time of 5 hours! What more do you want from a headlight?
