What Your Boyfriend Really Wants for Christmas: DIY Magic
We all know us Janes are pretty amazing when it comes to present-buying – and in fact Christmas organisation in general! But with so many lists to keep track of at this time of year, we can all do with a helping hand. So we’ve sought help from our brother site, Average Joes, who have pulled together ideas to buy our partners for Christmas!
When it comes to gift buying for the other half, we all know things can be a minefield – especially when it comes DIY and tools around the garden! So we have enlisted the help of our DIY obsessed Joe over at Average Joes to guide us through the minefield and pick out his top 5 Christmas gifts for the DIY enthusiast.
Ryobi One+ Combi Hammer Drill
Drills. Most of us have one but we all want a better one – no-one enjoys the wait whilst having to down tools whilst your battery charges. Ryobi have gone from strength to strength in recent years which some top advertising and very cool ideas. Basically, all of their batteries are the same so after you have a couple of batteries, you can then interchange them with other tools – saving time and money. This twin battery drill pack is the perfect present this Christmas, featuring 18 volts and 1.3 Ah batteries – enough power for any usual DIY task. With a quick charger and always having a spare battery – you could even buy him another bare bones tool for his birthday! Available over at Amazon for £124.97.
Canary is a name that has become synonymous with home security in recent years and we actually have one of the original in-home systems. The latest Flex follows the same lines but is also waterproof for outdoors use and features a complete non-wired system by utilising batteries and a wireless connection – perfect for installation in the garage to keep your new tools safe or the garden to keep an eye on the kids! Available for £174 at John Lewis.
Karcher K4 Pressure Washer
Gone are the days when you washed your car with a sponge and bucket – the recent explosion in home pressure washers means that most households have one. It isn’t just the car you can clean either, they are perfect for cleaning patios, walls, buildings and anything else laying around outside. Whilst we often borrow the old man’s one, isn’t it time you got your own? Available over at the Karcher Website for £199.99.
Now I will level with you – racking may not seem the most glamorous of presents, but just hear me out. Firstly, you can never have enough storage (think shoes) and this racking is as good as they come – simple buy very sturdy it doesn’t have to just be confined to the garage. You can use it in the house, utility room or even the office. Secondly? Well, we all loved LEGO and putting it together when we were kids, and this racking – whilst having no nuts or bolts – still has to be put together! So it will at least keep him entertained for a few hours on Christmas day. Available over at the Tufferman Website where prices start at £84.99.
