1 thought on “Holiday Gift Guide for the DIYer in your life.”

  1. It’s a simple gift, but I can vouch for the usefulness of the penlight. Handy people often find themselves working in places with limited light – a car engine, under the cupboard, under the deck, etc. It’s pretty hard to go wrong with a pen light, especially the one you featured as it has a clip-on that allows it to be hands free. The air accessory kit is a good gift too, it can give your old air compressor a lot more utility. Thank you for taking the time to compile this list, it’s solid.
