Hey guys! I promised a gift guide for him on the blog this Christmas season and while it came a little later than I was hoping I didn’t forget, hehe.
As you can see this gift guide for him is geared mostly towards the car lover in your life so if that’s your husband, brother, dad, nephew, etc, these ideas are for him! Ben rounded up some great items ranging in price and he is going to take over from here and share his expertise!
Every guy looking to do car repair needs a good socket set! This one includes multiple size rackets, sockets, extensions, and bonus torx set all in a handy carrying/storage case.
Gotta get the right torque! Most guys avoid properly torquing the bolts on their project because “it doesn’t make sense to buy the right tool”. This is a great gift for the guy who always makes do with what he’s got, you can give him the gift of properly tightened nuts and bolts this Christmas.
Every guy needs a good mutli-purpose tool and getting him a quality Leatherman Multi-tool will not only give him something fun to show his friends, but anytime you need him to cut some packing tape, fix that loose screw, or put your necklace back together it’s almost certain this will be the first tool he uses to get the job done.
Any guy that works on his own car will occasionally need to get underneath it, and there isn’t anything that will help him more than a good floor jack. This one is good enough to lift a half-ton pickup!
If you decided to get your guy a jack, it’s worth the extra time to make sure and order a quality set of jack stands. This will also give you the confidence when he’s working under the car that there’s an extra support holding it up.
If he spents a lot of time in the garage, it’s always a welcomed gift to have a new stool or creeper to lay on when there’s work to be done.
If he’s changing your oil, it’s worth getting him the right tool to remove the oil filter.
Do you remember a time when there were some choice words being said underneath the hood of your car when you asked to get the windshield wash filled up? There was probably a need for a funnel. Whether it’s adding oil, filling antifreeze, or topping up the washer fluid, having a funnel, or two, or three is a great gift that will remind him of you every time he uses it.
Often if a guy is handy around the house, he’ll forgo the need to buy a proper drain pan when working on the car. But it’s guarantee there’s a spill every time. Having the proper tool for the job saves a mess, and keeps environmental spills to a minimum.
Hope you found some ideas in this gift guide for him. If you have a car lover in your life, this is a great go-to! Also be sure to check out my gift guide for her if you are struggling to find something, xoxo.
