Top 10 Tool Gift Ideas for Boyfriends and Husbands
Need gift ideas for your boyfriend or husband? If he loves cars, gadgets and cool stuff, we've got you covered with our Top 10 tool gift ideas, hand-picked by our staffers!
1. Rechargeable Cordless Work Light with USB Port
Here's a gift idea that will light up his face! This bright and compact LED light is cordless and rechargeable, which means he can take it anywhere and use it everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
He can hang it, set it on the ground, on a table, under a car hood or just hold it like a flashlight. Perfect for men who camp, hunt, fish, boat, barbeque, party, paint, build or repair stuff. In other words, every man on the planet can find a use for this light!
And thanks to the built-in USB port for charging his smartphone, he'll keep the music going through work and play.
2. Cordless Power Drill
A cordless drill is almost always the first power tool any guy purchases. It's such a handy and versatile tool to have, for everything from assembling Ikea furniture to buffing out a scratch on his pride-and-joy car or truck.
If your guy has been hanging out in the power tool section of the home improvement store, take the hint and get him a nice cordless drill.
The Powerbuilt 20 Volt Cordless Drill is a great choice, one he'll be pleased to get and happy to own. It offers the features and performance of much more expensive drills without the unnecessary frills.
Our staffers say that the heart of any power drill is the battery. This drill uses a Lithium-Ion battery that's lightweight, offers long running time and is easy to recharge. And the Powerbuilt drill comes complete with a set of drill and screwdriver bits, all tucked away in a nice storage case.
This drill is so light, compact and easy to use that you might want to buy one for yourself!
3. 201 Piece Tool Set
Lots of guys like to work on their cars and trucks. Some do their own tune-ups, oil changes and brake jobs. Others like to personalize their ride with off-road lights, spoilers, exhaust systems and other performance parts.
Every guy who likes to turn a wrench will love this tool set. It offers a huge range of sockets to fit both domestic and import vehicles. And it includes ratchets and other drive tools to turn those sockets.
All are crafted from premium chrome vanadium steel polished to a mirror finish. Every tool meets or exceeds industry standards for fit finish and performance. All are covered by a lifetime warranty and a no-questions-asked replacement policy.
And the tools are tucked away in a handy storage case so he can store them in his truck, car or garage.
4. Stainless Steel Tumbler
Here's a stocking stuffer idea. A top quality 34-ounce stainless steel tumbler embossed with the Powerbuilt logo.
This double wall vacuum insulated stainless steel tumbler will keep dad's cold drinks colder and hot drinks hotter. The generous 34-ounce capacity and cup holder-friendly tapered design make it ideal for his daily commute and weekend road trips.
It's stylish enough to fit in nicely at his office, garage or man cave. Yes, it's almost as good looking as he is. It's just as tough too, constructed of food-grade stainless steel double walled and insulated to keep beverages at his desired drinking temperature for hours.
The crystal-clear lid features both sipping and straw openings and a heavy duty gasket that's guaranteed leak-proof.
Pair it with his favorite coffee beans or craft beer six pack and you've got a winner!
5. 3-in-1 Floor Creeper and Seat
Any guy who washes, waxes or works on his car or truck will love this unique floor creeper.
It adjusts to offer three different positions, depending on the task at hand. He can lay down on it and roll under his car or truck to inspect or work on it. If he wants to clean or polish wheels, by pulling a pin and raising the backrest, he can convert it to a low rolling seat.

6. Ratcheting Brake Caliper Tool
Trust us, if your boyfriend or husband does his own brake jobs, he'll love, Love, LOVE this tool! It eliminates one of the biggest hassles of changing brake pads - forcing the brake pistons apart to install new pads.
You don't need to know anything about brakes to gift this with confidence. We guarantee you'll hear less cursing from the garage or driveway and he'll finish the job much faster. Which means more quality time for the two of you. Right?!?
7. Jumbo Combination Wrench
If your guy already has every tool ever made, fear not! Unless he works in a shipyard or oil refinery, chances are he doesn't have this wrench.
Why? For one thing, it's big. At about 30 inches long, it's designed to turn bolts with 2-1/2" wide hex heads. That's a BIG wrench for a BIG bolt!
For another, it's heavy, about 13 pounds, and frankly, a little pricey given how impractical it is. But if you want to give your man a gift that symbolizes his love for tools and your love for him, this is the one to get.
It wouldn't look out of place mounted on the wall above his workbench or over the man-cave door.
8. Bicycle Torque Wrench
One of our staffers is a cycling fanatic. He's constantly upgrading and changing parts on his mountain bikes. If that sounds like your guy, this is your gift!
Every nut and bolt on a bicycle is supposed to be tightened to a specific degree, measured in torque. Really expensive carbon fiber parts like handlebars rely on proper bolt torque for safety as well as performance.
Trust us, he doesn't want to overtighten the bolts clamping a $150 handlebar in place (and he didn't want us to tell you that handlebar he bought cost $150 either).
This nifty wrench solves that problem before it happens. It delivers the precise amount of torque required for proper bike repair or parts installation. He'll love the comfy t-handle and ratcheting action that saves time as well as effort.
9. Truck and SUV Tire Step
Every guy who owns a truck or SUV will love this handy step. It fits over a tire to create a step that he can stand on to load bikes, boats or boards on roof racks.
He'll use to wash and wax the truck roof, load lumber or reach farther into the engine bay for maintenance work.
It folds for compact storage and easy transportation and holds up to 250 pounds. The non-slip 'cheese grater' step surface makes it secure even in snow or icy conditions.
10. Tool Bag
Your guy will love this tool bag! It holds a ton of tools and supplies. He'll use it to organize car washing and waxing supplies, or stuff it with power tools and hand tools for quick and easy access on the job.
And because it's portable and compact (about 21 inches long by 9 inches high and wide) he'll take it along on road trips, toss it in an RV or trailer or use it in the garage as a handy toolbox.
One of our staffers uses this bag as his bicycle tool center. He stores it in his car so he has tools, fluids and rags handy for cleaning, repairs and adjustments away from home. He's the most popular dude on his bike rides because he always has the right tool on hand.
He'll will be using this durable bag for holiday seasons to come. And, bonus, it folds flat, which makes it easy for him to store and easy for you to wrap it for the holiday.
