Great gifts for handy homeowners

Along with home ownership comes home maintenance … and plenty of it! Repairing and building, painting and improving may sound like tiresome chores to a lot of people, but for some, those proud handymen and women, the work is enjoyable.

Do you have someone on your holiday gift list who takes pride in their home improvement skills? Whether they enjoy building, repairing, crafting or decorating, help your favourite handyman or handywoman do their best work around the house with these helpful tools and accessories.

The Bucket Organizer Gift Basket

gifts for handy homeowners

Here’s a smart way to bring a BIG smile to the face of your favourite handy homeowner. Start with a bucket organizer and a 5 gallon bucket (the bucket is not usually included). A bucket organizer is a handy way to make essential tools easy to access and transport. No rooting around in overstocked tool boxes or running back and forth to a standing tool chest. It also relieves the strain that can come with wearing a heavy tool belt.

BUT, don’t just give the tool organizer and bucket! To personalize this gift and make it extra special, fill the pockets and pouches with their favourite snacks. Don’t forget to add their favourites drinks to the center of the organizer.
