  • With Christmas a week away, chances are you’ve still got some to-dos on your Christmas shopping list. Here are a few ideas for last-minute Christmas gifts for that handy guy (or gal) on your list. Make their awesome garage workshop even better with one of these gadgets.

    Creeper Seat

    Creeper Seat

    For the mechanic constantly working under or around the car, a versatile creeper that folds up to a rolling seat (like this one on Amazon) is a welcome garage tool!

    Shop-Grade Power Strips

    Workshop Power CenterThe workshop requires more robust power supplies than basic home extension cords. Grounded 3-prong power strips, or stations like the Stanley Upright Power Center, give your favorite handyperson the juice they’ll need to finish their workshop projects.



    If your favorite handy gal or guy always wants to be prepared, a multi-tool (or two) will be a gift they’ll always keep close at hand—in the shop, in the car, or even in the house.


    Jobsite WorklightEven with the best interior garage lighting, shadows can make it tough to finish a job—mechanical or handiwork. Worklights, especially the very bright, long-lasting, and cool-running LEDs are a must for every workspace.

    Job Site Radio

    Jobsite Radio Bluetooth SpeakerWho doesn’t want tunes to keep them company while working? But not every audio system is meant to go to work. A job site radio or speaker can pump out the audio even in the midst of a little construction dust. There are lots of options, from AM/FM to aux (for smartphones and MP3 players) to Bluetooth connectivity.

    Cordless Jobsite Fan

    Cordless Jobsite FanKeep your favorite handyperson cool in the garage no matter where their work takes them with a workshop cordless fan.

    Kids’ Tool Set

    Amazon Echo

    Home automation is definitely making its way into the garage, but for the workshop in particular, a personal assistant could be a welcome help for DIY project instructions, news and weather, entertainment, and even “keeping in touch” in case you forget something… like this guy.
