Buying gifts for the men in our lives might seem like an overwhelming task at times, but I’m here to help! The trick is to figure out their language, because it seems like they use words I’ve never heard before, especially when it comes to tools. I happen to have an expert in all things tools and speaks the men language fluently (my Husband), so here is his list of 10 Must Have Tools!
10 Must Have Tools-Great Gifts for Men:

An Impact Driver is a must have for anyone doing common household repairs! It’s light weight, easy to use, has a lot of power, and won’t strip out your screws. It’s useful in hanging pictures, blinds, home repairs, you will literally use this for any project you have! This one has 4 speeds so you can control the amount of power (or torque) that’s needed for the job. This would make a perfect gift for the men in your life!
The only difference with this Impact Driver is that it doesn’t have the 4 speeds.
A ratchet wrench gives you the ability to keep turning the ratchet without removing it from the bolt. It is particularly handy when working in a tight space. This set gives you 5 different sizes, so you will have the perfect tool for your needs. This is also helpful with car repairs.
I know how handy screw drivers are, but this set is awesome because it has every size you will need. Including different lengths of handles so you will be able to fit in any spot you need. If your man doesn’t have a set of these, now is the time to get him one.
Chisels aren’t something you may think of as a must have tool, but my hubby uses them all of the time. They are good for any area of wood you need to carve. Great for pine wood derby cars, door casings, hinges, trim work…so many projects. This is a hidden treasure and on the list of must have tools for men!
When looking for a good plier set, look for rubber grips. These will make it more comfortable to use, and gives you a better grip for those hard jobs.
You may think all hammers are created equal…not true. This hammer is a great all around hammer to have. It is well balanced which is important when you are swinging it. The rubber handle will last longer than a wood handle, and will absorb the impact when it hits.
A definite must have tool! I know jobs aren’t only happening at ground level, sometimes we need to be tall. This ladder is perfect because it has an adjustable height, extends from 6-12 feet with a push of a button, it’s light weight, and well built.
Really great for making sure if you are going to do a job, it’s done nice and straight. This particular level is small and light weight so it can go anywhere. It’s a simple tool but makes your job so much easier. Great gift idea!
Did you know that Craftsman tools have a lifetime warranty? If ever it breaks, they will replace it at no cost. This is one of the reasons Craftsman is a good brand to go with. This adjustable wrench set is a must have tool in any tool box because they are always needed. They work for any size bolt, and can be adjusted.
This is a bigger purchase but a great option to round out your tools. This can be used with several different attachments such as a micro pinner, finish nailer, framing nailer, tire pressure inflator, and a blower. An air compressor allows you to go quicker because it gives you power and speed, a great time saver.
Have fun picking the right tools!
