Trying to find the perfect gift for the handyman in your life can be tough. You don’t want to give them something generic, but you might not know enough to be able to walk into the hardware store and pick out a tool or gadget that would be useful.
If you’re struggling with what to give your jack-of-all-trades for Valentine’s Day, this guide has you covered with five great gifts that any handyman can use.
- Flexible Flashlight
Every handyperson has encountered a situation where they need to be able to see into a crevice that a regular flashlight just won’t fit into. Gifting him an extendable flexible flashlight can be a lifesaver.
These lights feature bright LED bulbs for maximum illumination, and the flexible cable comes in a variety of sizes.
- Touch Screen Work Gloves
Any good repairman has a sturdy pair of work gloves for tough jobs. However, having to stop and switch gloves or remove them to operate a smartphone can be a pain, so gifting a pair of multifunction work gloves can be useful.
These gloves are great for a variety of jobs, and the index and thumb are touch screen compatible.
- LED Knitted Hat
A handyperson always needs more light, and if they does a lot of outdoor work, a rechargeable lighted beanie would be a welcome substitute for a headlamp.
These knit beanies are warm, and the bright LED lamp is comfortably lightweight and USB-rechargeable so that it can be juiced up anywhere in under two hours.
- Digital Tape Measure
Even if your handyperson already has a manual tape measure, this 2-in-1 digital tape measure is a perfect upgrade.
Not only does it have a 100-foot tape measure, it also has a 16-foot laser measure and an easy-to-read digital display that can be toggled between metric and U.S. standard measurements.
- Magnetic Wristband
Anyone who has ever needed a small piece of hardware can relate to the frustration of fumbling around in a pocket or tool belt for the right screw. Giving the gift of a magnetic wristband can make a world of difference for your handyperson.
The wristband is lightweight, adjustable and can hold a considerable number of nails, drill bits, screws and fasteners with ease.
Give the Gift of Gadgets This Valentine’s Day
This year, you can skip the generic gifts and multi-tools in favour of a thoughtful and unique present that your handyperson will be able to use for years to come.
