With Christmas a week away, chances are you’ve still got some to-dos on your Christmas shopping list. Here are a few ideas for last-minute Christmas gifts for that handy guy (or gal) on your list. Make their awesome garage workshop even better with one of these gadgets.
The workshop requires more robust power supplies than basic home extension cords. Grounded 3-prong power strips, or stations like the Stanley Upright Power Center, give your favorite handyperson the juice they’ll need to finish their workshop projects.
Even with the best interior garage lighting, shadows can make it tough to finish a job—mechanical or handiwork. Worklights, especially the very bright, long-lasting, and cool-running LEDs are a must for every workspace.
Who doesn’t want tunes to keep them company while working? But not every audio system is meant to go to work. A job site radio or speaker can pump out the audio even in the midst of a little construction dust. There are lots of options, from AM/FM to aux (for smartphones and MP3 players) to Bluetooth connectivity.
Home automation is definitely making its way into the garage, but for the workshop in particular, a personal assistant could be a welcome help for DIY project instructions, news and weather, entertainment, and even “keeping in touch” in case you forget something… like this guy.
