Hand tools are inexpensive and an absolute requirement for every home regardless of its size.
Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) December 13, 2011
Now that the wedding and all of the showers leading up to the wedding are over, most newly married couples have the small appliances, dishes, flatware, bedding, and picture frames they need. In the mad rush to purchase the perfect Christmas gift for those newlyweds this year, consider giving hand tools to assist in the establishment of the new nest. The Maintenance Guru suggests the purchase of at least one tool of your choice this year. These hand tools also work for office secret Santa gifts, and gifts to men and women who are difficult to buy for.
Hand tools are inexpensive, not gender specific, and an absolute requirement for every home regardless of its size. From putting bed frames together to hanging pictures, making minor repairs to bikes and boards to hooking up that new video game and performing home maintenance of all kinds, everyone needs a basic tool box. The Maintenance Guru stresses that no home or office can have too many tools. No need to worry about giving a tool that is already in the tool box either because most people want small tools available in multiple places. For example, many kitchens have a screwdriver, small tape measure, and a pair of pliers in a drawer for immediate use, even though the same tools may be found in a tool box in the garage and another one in the trunk of the car.
The 1# tool needed by everyone is inexpensive box cutter. Give one to everyone on your list and have them open your box cutter first so it will be available to cut away the plastic that seems to surround most electronic gifts this year. Then, remind everyone to move the blade away from their body when cutting. Other must have tools that everyone needs includes an adjustable end wrench (any size), bucket, claw hammer, extension cord, flashlight, gloves, hacksaw, pliers, screwdrivers, magnifying glass, and a three prong adapter for electrical cords so three prong cords can work in two prong outlets. Most of these hand tools can be purchased for under $5 and many cost less. For a complete list of basic tools, visit http://www.maintenanceguru.com.
Basic tool boxes with the above items available provide a variety of tools needed to perform most minor maintenance inspections and repairs.
