Are you looking for the perfect gift for the DIY’er in your life? I must admit I don’t know much about baking, fashion, sewing, gourmet food, makeup, photography or entertaining. But…what I do have real life experience in is how to be a mom, a cheerleader (to my husband and 3 boys), a painter, a cabinet & furniture refinisher, a maker, an upcycler, a repurposer, a dumpster-diver, a curb-shopper and an DIYer! This gift guide will give you some great ideas for that special person on your gift list.
I have created the ultimate gift guide for the DIYer, which includes things I own and things I would love to have. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
Power Tools If you follow my blog, you know how much I love my power tools. My goal is to teach and empower all women, men and children to use power tools to complete their own DIY projects. This gift guide includes the power tools I use on a regular basis that make it easy to do what I do.
Hand Tools I recommend that every person have a set of hand tools that are comfortable to use. There is nothing more frustrating than starting a project and not having every thing you need finish. This is a list of hand tools that I carry in my tool bag.
Safety This category is by far the most important and should not be overlooked. I admit I am guilty of getting in a hurry and forgetting to grab my safety goggles every now and again but please…If we slow down and take the necessary precautions, we can reduce the number of accidents.
Painting Supplies My background as a decorative painter and cabinet/furniture refinisher gives me an edge in this category. These are products in this gift guide are the products I use in my business.
Crafting Supplies Do you know someone who’s “craftiness” makes you jealous? Well I have put together a list of products that will make even the best of crafters jump for joy when they receive them.
Books/Instruction This list of books are perfect for the DIYer who has everything. There is both instruction and inspiration in this list and…some of them would make great coffee table books!
Miscellaneous Don’t let the name fool you. Just because I titled it miscellaneous doesn’t mean it’s an afterthought. Some of my favorites are in this category.
I hope this gift guide for the DIYer gives you some great ideas for the DIYers on your list (or for yourself). If you like this gift guide, then check out my other gift guides for: The Fixer Upper | DIY Kids| The Dumpster Diver | The Crafter | The Chalk Painter | The Painter
