Useful gifts for craftsmen
Are there things that a craftsman always carries with him? Sure there are. His clothes, for example. With new work trousers or jackets that offer plenty of storage space for all kinds of things, it’s much easier to work. Another thing that shouldn’t be missing: the toolbox. If you need a new one, it’s the perfect gift for the do-it-yourselfer.
Gadgets for craftsmen
Any gadgets are really attractive gifts. After all, even veteran craftsmen are pleased with the modern tools of today. These include screwdrivers, saws, files and cutters with multitool function. A Leatherman is probably your product of choice here. A magnetic bracelet to which all kinds of screws and nails can be attached is also a great idea.
Original gifts for craftsmen
What certainly not every do-it-yourselfer has is a screw manikin to put down. This is available in a variety of designs: As a bricklayer, carpenter, roofer, car mechanic, etc. Depending on the profession of your favorite craftsman – there is certainly a suitable screw figure.
Funny gifts for craftsmen
Fun should not be neglected on the construction site. Funny statement shirts or caps with craftsman sayings and motifs ensure a good mood. Socks and mugs that are not ordinary are also suitable as gifts for DIY enthusiasts.
Thank you gift for craftsmen
Has your craftsman helped you many times? Then you should tell him “Thank you for everything”. You can do this very elegantly by handing him something sweet. Thank goodness chocolate comes in the form of tools.
Personalized gifts for craftsmen
If you’re looking for a personal gift for a craftsman, a personalized hammer is the perfect choice. Many manufacturers offer you the option of laser engraving the handle. Folding rules, pliers or spirit levels can also be engraved.

- If you don’t have any ideas, take a look at Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest. Here you can find really cool things. Or get inspired by friends, acquaintances and relatives.
- Do not allow yourself to make a mistake when buying the gift. So first think about how much the gift should cost; for what occasion and for whom you buy it. After all, every do-it-yourselfer is an individual.

1 How to find the right gift for craftsmen
Do-it-yourselfers are their own kind of people – they always want something to do. They are also particular when it comes to gifts. But that doesn’t mean you have to have a hard time finding a gift. You can make it easy for yourself if you keep our well-intentioned advice in mind:
When it comes to buying gifts, money naturally plays a not unimportant role. Think about how much you want to invest in your gift. After all, the price ranges from cheap to expensive. If you are a money-saver, you have to look for special offers. You can find them either in brochures or even easier – in online stores.
Is the gift for Christmas, Easter or a birthday? Or maybe you just need it for “just because”. In principle, it does not matter for what reason you want to give the craftsman. The only thing to keep in mind is this: The bigger and more special the occasion, the more expensive the present can be.
How old is the craftsman you need the gift for? Young or old? You can’t ignore the age aspect when you’re looking for a suitable gift. After all, you can’t give a 16-year-old apprentice the same gift as a 60-year-old master craftsman.
What is your favorite person’s trade? You should know that in any case. After all, you should adapt your gift to it. After all, a carpenter, for example, works with completely different utensils than a painter.
2 The best gift ideas for craftsmen
CONSTRUCTION SITE SUPPLIES
A hungry belly doesn’t like to work. A craftsman must also take time out once in a while. He can stow food and drink in a lunch bag. If he doesn’t already own something practical like this, you know what you can give him. The bags come in many different sizes, designs and colors. A nice idea would be to fill the lunch bag with provisions. What needs to go in here? A snack board, salami, bacon and something sweet.
Alcohol in construction? That will literally go wrong. But after work, the craftsman can of course treat himself to something good to relax. Of course, you need to know whether the person receiving the gift prefers wine, beer or schnapps. Then you can start looking for a special variety. Contact the retailer you trust.
Craftsmen do not take breaks. They just give their tools a little rest. In the meantime, your favorite homeworker can relax, too. The best way to do that is with a cup of coffee. Of course, the hot beverage tastes best when it’s fresh. The Makita coffee maker makes sure of that. Thanks to its rechargeable battery, it can be taken to any construction site. From a special cup with a DIY slogan, the coffee enjoyment is twice as great.
A really practical gift for a craftsman is a tool bag that can be easily attached to the hip. Due to its numerous nestings, it offers enough space for heaps of tools, nails, screws, etc. without becoming bulky. Even a metal clip for a roller tape measure is included on the bag. Old school but very classy look those made of leather.
If the craftsman you’re giving a gift to doesn’t already have it in his inventory, it’s high time he did: the Professional Laser Rangefinder GLM 40 from Bosch. It is the compact and robust gadget par excellence when it comes to measuring accuracy. It can be used for measuring length, height, area and volume. This makes the work of the handyman even more precise.
Organization is the be-all and end-all. I know, many craftsmen love their sorted chaos, but the workplace is much nicer when everything is in order, isn’t it?
Your favorite do-it-yourselfer doesn’t like to read? Maybe he just hasn’t found the right book for him yet? What he will almost certainly like: A project book. Those books contain project instructions for hobby craftsmen. Because as the saying goes? There’s always something to do.
A DIYer without a workbench? That’s not possible, of course. A super gift idea for a craftsman is therefore a universal workbench. The height of the work surface can be easily adjusted. This way, your favorite person can devote himself to his work in a comfortable and back-friendly way. But the workbench can be set up not only in the workshop, but also on uneven floors – the ribbed plastic floor provides the necessary grip.
CONSTRUCTION SITE RADIO
Working is 100 times more fun when you listen to music while doing it. What could be better than working to the beat? Why not give the craftsman a construction site radio as a gift? There are many models on the market that are not only robust and durable, but also have a great sound. Radios from Bosch or Makita, for example, can really take a lot of punishment.
3 The gift should come from the heart!
Buying any item is not a art – even if it would be most comfortable for you. But this has nothing to do with appreciation. The important thing is that your gift brings joy. In order for this to happen, you should be very careful in your search for the present. Wander around without a plan and goal and finally reach for ordinary stuff? Please don’t.
4 How much should gifts for craftsmen cost?
Of course, you don’t have to take out a loan if you want to buy a gift for a craftsman. But especially a little more expensive and especially good quality souvenirs are a sign of appreciation. So if a very special occasion is coming up, don’t play the cheapskate. If the present is only meant as a kind gesture, then you can also buy a cheaper thank-you gift.
Not possible? There’s no such thing! – that’s the motto of every do-it-yourselfer, isn’t it? This saying also applies to you when you are looking for the right gift for a craftsman. If you have read our advice well, you only have to put the theoretical knowledge into practice. Then you have already won and will bring a smile to the face of the recipient.
