Top 7 Gift Ideas for Dad
This Father's Day, get Dad something he'll really love and actually use. Not sure where to start? We've got you covered with these top-rated tool sets.
Master Socket Set
We find ourselves recommending our master socket sets for almost everything. Why? They include all you need for a complete system of tools in a sturdy go-anywhere carrying case. Even if Dad already has a socket set, he’ll like keeping this one in his vehicle, at the cabin, or as a spare set in the shop.
Essential Screwdriver Sets
It doesn’t matter what type of projects Dad’s into, a truly good set of screwdrivers is a staple in every tool chest. One of our personal favorites is the 12-piece set because it includes a range of sizes and lengths for both Phillips and Slotted screwdrivers. No more discount-store drivers—get him something nice.
Everyday Mini Pliers
We find that these nimble pliers are perfectly sized to make their way into all kinds of everyday precision work. If you're not sure which styles he'll use most, don't worry. Just choose from our pre-selected sets that range from three of the most common styles to all eight pliers in the line. You might even want to pick some up for yourself.
Complete Wrench Line-Up
Our wrenches come in many different styles and sizes, but you’ll never go wrong opting for our classic combination wrenches. In particular, we recommend the 30-piece or 22-piece sets because they're complete—they both cover a wide range of inch and metric sizes without skipping any.
Multipurpose Locking Pliers
These are another toolbox must-have. We offer various jaw styles in multiple lengths, but if Dad’s only going to own one, let it be the versatile 10-inch curved jaw pliers. Because they’re often used in pairs to hold workpieces in place, the set of 4 is a great place to start.
Everybit Tech Rescue Kit
Anyone who has a mobile phone, tablet, laptop, game system, collectible toys, wristwatches, or eyeglasses will find this set useful. It’s one of our top gift choices because it’s compact but includes all the tiny bits and tools that Dad needs to repair his gadgets.
Best Tool Organizers
Get Dad organized with a few of our favorite tool storage accessories. He’ll love the twist-to-lock socket organizers that keep his sockets from flying off their rails. Or the magnetic parts trays that keep his metal parts, fasteners, and tools from rolling around the garage.
