It’s time for my annual guide. Top 10 gifts for that Builder, Remodeler, Dad, or Dude in your life!
Fenix LD02 http://amzn.to/2hNJqmx This little light is 10x more powerful than your phone’s flashlight. Takes AAA batteries. I keep this one on me daily. $30
Leatherman Skeletool KB Black http://amzn.to/2ze8Gcl For $25 this little knife is a great deal. Perfect size to fit in your coin pocket. Has a bottle opener too. For this price, this knife is hard to beat.
Benchmade Mini-Griptilian http://amzn.to/2hLvpW9 In my opinion this is the best Knife company going.
This $100 Benchmade is a gem. Expensive, but a fantastic Knife.
Petzl Tikka Headlamp http://amzn.to/2mUqLdS Takes AAA batteries and is super bright. I’m a fan of this model. Keep it in your truck for changing a flat tire, or crawling in an attic hands-free. It also has a Red light to preserve night vision. A great deal for under $30.
Aukey Brick Charger http://amzn.to/2zd0I3w For emergencies you NEED a big charger like this. I used it during the Hurricane Harvey outage to keep my two phones in my house charged for a multi-day outage. A great gift for $38!
This company makes THE BEST products to clean your car, but I also use them on my houses. Trust me on this one. He will Love anything you get him from Griots. These are my top three I use most from their catalog.
Griots Garage Interior Detailer http://amzn.to/2mTGx8W
Benchmade Knife Sharpener http://amzn.to/2hOryrj
I bought this originally to fit in my backpack for hunting trips, but I was frankly shocked at how well it worked! I use it all the time at the house. The leather strop on the top is awesome. I get my knives razor sharp. He will love this $40 gift!
Cordless Dremel http://amzn.to/2hWjngz
Dremel Engraving Bits http://amzn.to/2zYg3bR
I am a big believer in Tatooing all my Tools & Equipment and this little Dremel has been awesome for that task. Battery life is excellent and they make a million bits for all kinds of work. A bit more expensive than the other items but very helpful for a Builder, Carpenter, or Tradesman. (OR a DIY DAD).
