A handyman is like a modern superman who can put together your new bed with ease, or make sure your garbage disposal doesn’t try to eat you alive. You should be able to show your appreciation with gifts that make his life easier – especially when that handyman in your life is your boyfriend. He’s always there with a wrench in hand to make sure that your life is easier and less stressful.
We’ve gathered some gift ideas together for you. This handyman boyfriend of yours has so many tools that you can’t expect to give him a simple tool and be done with it. The gift has to be unique and special while being useful. As he makes your life easier, you want this gift to make his life easier, too. It should be a gift that keeps him safe or helps him work more efficiently.
Stanley 32050 FatMax Power Claw
While this might look slightly gimmicky, it’s a very useful piece of equipment for any tool box. Your boyfriend will be able to place it in any location where he needs the extra sockets. It’s great on job sites and in tight corners. Imagine he’s under a cabinet or in a crawl space but needs more light. He’ll be able to place this clamp in an out-of-the-way place and plug in every tool he could need. This will eliminate the need to keep crawling in and out of the cramped work space.
- Impact-resistant plastic
- Resettable circuit breaker
- Rubber grips
- Three grounded outlets
There’s a strong spring in the gripper, so that it can clamp anywhere without falling to the ground even when there’s three plugs in the unit. This is important if he’s working in a space where the floor is wet. This lifts the power strip off the ground.
Makita XT273R 18V Lithium-Ion Cordless Combo Kit
It’s unlikely that your handyman boyfriend doesn’t have a drill in his tool box, but he doesn’t have a drill like this. The batteries can be recharged quickly and easily in less than 30 minutes. There’s a charge indicator level, so he can see when it’s ready for use.
- Two lithium-ion batteries
- Hammer driver drill
- LXT Impact driver
- 18V charger
- Tool bag
There are two drills in this kit. One is for drilling and fastening while the other is a hammer drill for wood, metal, or even masonry. It’s lightweight but will provide 1,420 pounds of torque to any job. With these two drills, he can eliminate many of the drill bits and equipment clogging his tool box.
Gerber Suspension Multi-Plier
There are times when your boyfriend doesn’t want to carry his entire tool box with him. He might even be spending time at your apartment when he realizes there’s something to be fixed. Because he’s an amazing boyfriend, he’ll want to be able to fix it immediately. That can be done with this plier that has 11 other added tools on it.
- Straight and serrated blades
- Phillips screwdriver
- Large and medium flathead
- Bottle and can opener
- Saw and awl
- Lanyard ring
- Needle-nose pliers and wire cutter
The spring-action pliers also have wire cutters built into them. The rest of the tools fold into the handle, so this tool can easily be carried in his pocket. For small jobs, he won’t have to go back to his truck for his tool box. When he’s called to a job, he can whip out his multi-tool and get right to work.
CLC Custom Leathercraft Work Gloves
The guy who works with his hands needs something to protect them. While you might not mind a guy with rough hands, you want him to protect himself from harm. At the same time, he should be able to answer his phone when you call or return your texts throughout the day. That can all be done with these handyman gloves.
- High dexterity gloves
- Three smartphone touch fingertips
- Wing closing strap to easily take off
- Lycra and spandex for stretch
- Synthetic leather
- Foam for protection at the knuckles
These gloves come in a variety of sizes as well as packs of two. They run a bit small, so make sure you order with that in mind. They’re machine washable, which is a great quality since he’s likely to sweat slightly in the gloves when he’s working. Plus he’ll be touching greasy, dirty surfaces.
The gift you choose that relates to his job should be one where he knows that behind the gift is your affection and caring. All the gifts on this list will keep him safe, make him more productive, or help him be more efficient. All of that will get him back to you in one piece and on time!
