Our TOP 10 Xmas Gifts


Paslode IM360Ci Nail Gun

Paslode IM360Ci Nail Gun

Framing nailer kit

Perfect gift for joiners, house builders, fencing builders

Price: £409

This is an absolute essential for timber construction, like house building or fencing. The immense time and effort saved vs. using a hammer is a no-brainer. Paslode is the leading nail gun brand and the 360 is their latest model. Even if you know that the recipient already uses a “Paslode” (perhaps an IM350?), the IM360Ci is definitely worth the upgrade. Plus, it’s currently on sale at over £70 off it’s usual price, so the time to buy is now!

Before you purchase this gift: the IM360Ci has its own set of distinct nails. They’re cheaper than the IM350 equivalent, which is great. However, it is important to check that the recipient buys their own nails (as opposed to their contractor providing them), as they’ll need the nail gun which suits those nails.



Panasonic Site Radio

Panasonic Site Radio

Robust and job-site ready

Perfect gift for any tradesman or woman

Price: £147

This is a stylish-looking FM radio built for tough job-site conditions with premium sound quality. It works off of mains power or Panasonic power tool batteries. So, if the recipient uses Panasonic tools, they’ll love it even more. It’s Bluetooth-enabled so it can play the music on your phone or tablet. You can also charge devices with it via USB!



Bosch GLM80 R60 measuring kit

Bosch GLM80R60

Digital measuring kit

Perfect gift for builders, joiners

Price: £156

A huge time and pain saver – this kit combines the GLM80 laser measurer and R60 angle finder rail. Together they cover a tonne of measuring tasks, including distances up to 80m, areas, volume, and angle of incline, including 0° flat. It’s highly accurate for maintaining a professional standard on the job.



Buckler Safety Boots

Buckler Boots

Safety boots of the highest quality

Perfect gift for any trade worker

Price: £59-£85

Buckler make great work boots with lots of important safety features specifically for the job site. That includes steel toes and midsoles, so the recipient is protected from protrusions above or below the foot. The boot’s material is resistant to heat, oil and fuel, and the sole is highly slip resistant. Plus, there’s some nice styles to choose from!



Panasonic EYC217 Combi and Impact Driver Twin Pack

Panasonic Twin Pack

Upgrade their every day essentials

Perfect gift for joiners, fitters

Price: £317

Panasonic make some of the best cordless tools on the market-place and this latest combi drill and impact driver twin pack is no different. These two drills are essential on a daily basis for any joiner or fitter. Panasonic have given them new and improved technology, new brushless motors (which increases power and lifespan), new speed control functions and a cool new carbon-black look. The kit includes a battery for each tool, a fast charger, high impact carry case and 3 year warranty. It’s a very popular choice with our customers! There’s another version of this kit with longer lasting batteries also, if you want to go all out!



Bosch GTM 12 JL Table Mitre Saw

Bosch GTM 12 JL Table/Mitre Saw

2 tools in 1, made portable

Perfect gift for woodworkers, builders, joiners

Price: £405

An excellent companion on the job site for wood workers. The recipient can carry this portable machine around and make a variety of standard (yet clean and accurate) wood cuts which would normally require a table saw and a mitre saw. This impressive tool has a blade head which flips to switch between the two variations. It’s powerful and has enough cutting capacity to tackle a good range of cuts. Ideal for a mid-level wood cutter.



Bosch GTL 3 Tile Laser

Bosch GTL 3 Tile Laser

Tile laying assistant

Perfect gift for tilers

Price: £129

This is a 3 line laser for tile laying tasks up to 20m. It’s way faster than manually aligning all those tiles. It’s highly accurate and designed for professional use. It comes packaged with a wall mount and batteries.



Dewalt DT71540 53-Piece Screwdriver Bit Set With Safety Glasses

DeWalt 53pc Screwdriver Bit Set

with safety glasses

Perfect gift for joiners or DIYers

Price: £25

A handy set of screwdriving accessories with safety glasses. With this 53 piece set the recipient will have all of their screw driving tasks taken care of!



Panasonic Rolling Tool Bag

Panasonic Rolling Tool Bag

Perfect gift for any trade worker

Price: £39

A large tool bag for all of the recipient’s work stuff. It’s got side pockets, an extending handle on one end and wheels at the other so you can roll it around like a suitcase. It’s robust with a thick material and a sturdy base. What more is there to say, it’s ideal for the job site!



Bosch GLM100C + Samsung A7 Tablet

Bosch GLM100C + Samsung A7 Tablet

Digital measuring device and tablet kit

Perfect gift for construction planners, kitchen/bathroom designers

Price: £275

Create professional floor plans with these two excellent devices. The GLM100C can be used to obtain the measurements of a room (distance, area, volume and even inclines) with professional accuracy. It will store all of those measurements, then that information can be transferred to the A7 tablet via Bluetooth to produce a digital floor plan! This is useful for further editing, emailing, printing, etc. making things faster and easier to organise. This is a great value kit offer on the two devices. The Samsung tablet doesn’t have to be just for work purposes of course!
