This Gifts for DIY Enthusiasts post is inspired by the ever-growing list that Cody has for tools. Since we have been doing DIY projects around the house, I have been surprised at how many tools we need to do one job, and then the second surprise comes when I find out how much a tool costs! I remember asking Cody about making some custom shelves in the basement. He explained that he would need more tools to do the job well. At first I thought it would be less expensive to invest in the tools and be able to make as many shelves as we wanted, but after doing some research I realized that getting all the tools we needed all at once was not in the budget.
So, if you or someone you know enjoys DIY projects, here are some tools that we have used and will come in handy for many different projects. Tools are truly gifts that keep giving, so the investment can be worth it. Get tools a little at a time and, like Cody, you will be surprised at how they accumulate. Eventually I will share how Cody has organized his spaces and tools. Since he has so many interests, it will be an epic post. 😉
I deferred to Cody for these recommendations since he loves tools and uses them more than I do. If you have a question about any of the tools, please let me know. I hope that your DIY enthusiast will enjoy a gift of creation!
