For many dads, a perfect Father’s Day gift is something that eliminates life’s little frustrations. A perfect example is the classic DIY headache of trying to keep your screw bit aligned with a screw head, especially when you’re at an awkward angle. Eliminate the frustration by asking for the most affordable item on our list. This budget-friendly driver guide has an extendable sleeve to hold screw heads in place. It will keep your aggravation to a minimum, and keep you from teaching your kids creative new words.
Meat Shredding Claws
Sure, it’s always fun to cook, but why settle for being a mere chef when you can imitate a voracious predator? Step up your kitchen game with these stainless steel claws. You can use them to adjust items on the grill that are too big for conventional flippers and tongs. And they make quick work of shredded chicken and pulled pork.
It’s common knowledge that BBQ is the universal language of dads everywhere. Let your family know you could use a new set of barbecue accessories, and maybe let them know about this special Father’s Day barbecue tool set. It includes a spatula, tongs, grill brush cleaner, meat thermometer and sauce brush. It also comes with a rugged carrying case and a bottle opener in the spatula handle, for when you’re ready to crack open that post-BBQ soda or beer.
Speaking of beer, if you’ve been meaning to dive into homebrewing, Father’s Day is the perfect time to request a starter kit. Luckily, The Home Depot carries this all-in-one IPA brew kit that has everything you need to start on your path to brew mastery. Make up to two gallons (22 servings) of your own IPA.
Maybe you’ve collected drill bit indexes as gifts in the past, or maybe you have too many drill bits lying around in various states of disrepair. Bring those bits back to life with a Drill Doctor bit sharpener. You not only restock your selection, but walk away knowing you saved material from the landfill.
Portable Work Platform
One of the true marks of DIY mastery is a steady stream of requests for help from those less handy than yourself. And if you’re of a certain age, then those less-handy individuals are most likely your grown children.
Make all those trips to help friends and family easier on your back with a portable work platform. It comes with a variety of toppers to hold two-by material vertically or horizontally, or to create a work surface from sheets of plywood.
To sweeten the pot, this exclusive-to-The-Home-Depot model comes with $40 worth of free accessories.
A bench grinder is one of those tools not enough DIYers own. Once you have one, a grinder quickly becomes a go-to tool for buffing, sanding, cleaning and sharpening. A bench grinder takes up little space in your workshop and is an immense time saver — the kind of gift almost custom-crafted for Father’s Day wish lists.
What’s the use of owning fantastic tools if you lack somewhere safe to store them? This Husky five drawer tool chest has a rugged black textured exterior and easy-access drawers to help you lay your hands on the right tool exactly when it’s needed. Tool chests make great presents because they’re highly visible, so your family will see you use it all the time.
40-Volt Cordless String Trimmer
Sure, those 18-volt string trimmers are great, and having batteries that swap out with other power tools is nice. But if you truly want cordless convenience without giving up the power of a gas-operated trimmer, then you need this 40-volt cordless unit from Ryobi. It gets the job done with long-lasting power, leaving you more time to move on to your next project — or take the afternoon off.
278-Piece Mechanic’s Tool Set
There are few things more satisfying than a well-organized mechanic’s tool set. Knowing you’ve got the tools it takes to tackle everything from automotive to household tasks means that you can forget about stocking up on additional gizmos and get straight to work. So let your family know that while the coffee mugs and novelty socks are great, a pro-grade tool set is what will really make your Father’s Day complete!
