Have you got that mate who spends all their time tinkering around with tools? That family member who can always be found with their head under a bonnet? That loved one who treats their power tools like an extension of themselves?
Then this is the list for you. Particularly if Christmas has snuck up on you this year and you’re looking for an awesome last-minute solution…
1. Halfords Advanced 100-Piece Socket Set
Kicking off our list is a product we think no DIYer should be without: the Halfords Advanced 100-Piece Socket Set. Those 100 pieces include a variety of 100-tooth ratchets, 6-point sockets, hex and torx bits, and much more. The set also comes with a Lifetime Guarantee – because socket sets are for life, not just for Christmas.
2. Ryobi 18V ONE+ Combi Drill Starter Kit
This is a top gift for any power tool fan. The Ryobi 18V ONE+ Combi Drill Starter Kit is ideal for drilling into wood, metal or even masonry, with a comfy handle, two-speed gearbox and LED light. Best of all, it’s part of Ryobi’s ONE+ system of cordless tools which means the same rechargeable battery can be used for multiple tools.
3. Halfords 8-Drawer Tool Centre
With its shiny red finish, the Halfords 8-Drawer Tool Centre is already embracing the spirt of Christmas. Add in the fact that it’s a combination chest and cabinet, with a lockable top section, a variety of drawer depths and tough swivel casters that mean it can be moved wherever it’s needed, and you’ve got the ultimate Christmas tool storage present.
4. Halfords 92-Piece Garage Tool Kit
If it’s an all-purpose tool kit for home and garage that you’re after, you’ve found it. The Halfords 92-Piece Garage Tool Kit contains a range of 72-tooth ratchets, sockets and bits, combination spanners, pliers and screwdrivers. It also comes in neat little case and has a two-year guarantee, both of which your giftee will thank you for.
5. Halfords 1/4″ 25-Piece Drive Metric Socket Set
On a smaller scale, we’ve got the Halfords 1/4” 25-Piece Drive Metric Socket Set. This is the guy your loved one will want to hand when they’ve got little everyday tasks to undertake on their car or bike, or around the home. It comes with a 72-tooth ratchet handle, a variety of sockets and bits, as well as a universal joint and extension bars (and a two-year guarantee). Perfect for popping under the tree!
6. Stanley 19” Toolbox
You can’t go wrong with a Stanley 19” Toolbox. Not only does it give you a neat and portable storage space for tools, but the two lid organisers mean you can keep your small parts separate (they’re also accessible without opening the main toolbox). Plus, there’s a tote tray for added convenience.
7. Halfords 58-Piece Ratchet Screwdriver and Bit Set
Another tool set, this one with bits galore! The Halfords 58-Piece Ratchet Screwdriver and Bit Set is a comprehensive selection of the most common bits, making it ideal for home and garage work. Your loved one will be able to get their work done swiftly thanks to the ratchet handle, leaving them more time to work on their next big project.
8. Halfords Boltless Work Bench with 1 Drawer
As its name suggests, the Halfords Boltless Work Bench with 1 Drawer will give your DIY enthusiast a dedicated space where they can tinker to their heart’s content. The bench can be tapped together with a rubber mallet, making assembly a breeze, and even comes with a handy drawer and top shelf to keep tools, fixtures and fittings safe.
9. Ring Slim Inspection Light
The Ring Slim Inspection Light is all about getting light to hard-to-reach places – like inside an engine. The wide-angled beam provides 250 lumens, while there’s also a 125 lumen LED torch for detailed work. Magnets and hooks make this a great hands-free option, allowing your loved one to keep focusing on their work.
10. Draper Manual Ranging Digital Multimeter
