5 Father’s Day Gift Ideas For The Handy Dad

Have you thought about what you’re getting dear old dad this Father’s Day? If you’re like many of us, you probably don’t even know where to begin. Might we suggest narrowing down gift idea categories by hobby? The avid golf dad gets some new golfing swag, and the foodie dad gets a gift certificate to that hip new burger joint in town — but what about the DIY dad? This dad happens to be our favorite type of dad! Why? Because the gifting opportunities are seemingly endless. Here’s what we suggest:

  1. Power Tool Kit: Why get dad just one simple drill, when you can get him an entire kit of every power tool he could ever ask for? Check out this 6-tool Ultimate Combo Kit from Ryobi. It even comes with its own all-in-one carrying and storage bag!
  2. Adjustable Workbench: If dad already has all the tools he needs, how about giving him a place to store them safely? The best solution is a workbench with an adjustable height feature, that way he can work on his DIY duties as comfortably as possible. This 10-Drawer Mobile Workbench from Husky is just the thing!
  3. Laser Measure: Take dad into the 21st century and help him say goodbye to his old-fashioned tape measure for good. This particular Laser Measure from Bosch is Bluetooth enabled to make transferring data to a smartphone or tablet as easy as 1, 2, 3!
  4. Work Light: Don’t let darkness slow dad down! Purchase an LED Dual-Head Tripod to light up the darkest workspaces, and keep the DIY going strong, even when the sun goes down.
  5. New BBQ: After a long day of DIY-ing, what dad wouldn’t want to sit back, relax, and enjoy the smell of burgers and buns cooking on the grill? For all his hard work, reward dad with a toy he can enjoy, especially after all the work is done!
