Top Ten Christmas Gifts for Tradespeople

1. Makita 101-piece Drilling & Screwdriving Accessory Set

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £16.79

This Makita accessory set contains an extensive range of drill bits, hole saws, screwdriver bits and nut drivers for every need! Any tradesperson will use this set on a daily basis to conduct drilling and screwdriving tasks. It comes in a robust case for safe storage and easy transportation.

2. Defender DF1200 LED Work Light

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £35.10

Every tradesperson needs a clear view when they’re working. This Defender LED work light provides excellent illumination with a high 1200 lumen output, colour that replicates daylight, a 120° light spread and anti-glare! It’s extremely tough with a robust floor stand and an impact-resistant case to keep it protected against any knocks or falls – so the recipient can have peace of mind if they work in harsh conditions on construction sites. It can stand alone on a flat surface or hang on a hook by its handle for versatile use.

Before you purchase this gift: If the recipient works on construction sites, the light will need to have 110v power (instead of 240v) which is the accepted safe standard for building sites. You can select the power from the drop-down box at the top of the product page.

3. Makita Rolling Tool Kit Bag

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £29.99

This Makita holdall is perfect for safely storing and transporting any tradesperson’s power tool kit! Its large size can comfortably fit six power tools – and possibly more! It also has pockets for storing smaller parts and an adjustable bungie cord on the top for extra storage. It has a heavy-duty construction with padded walls and a rigid bottom with rails to keep the recipient’s tools protected. It has wheels and an extendable handle for easy transportation, plus padded carrying handles and a removable padded shoulder strap.

4. Metabo R 12-18 DAB+ BT Digital Site Radio

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £76.99

This Metabo radio is perfect for the construction site, workshop or anywhere really! It’s extremely robust with top sound quality. It receives both AM/FM and digital stations, and a Bluetooth connection allows the recipient to listen to music from their mobile device. It has a flexible power supply via a power cord (included) or a Metabo battery (not included), so if the recipient uses cordless Metabo tools or works on building sites where there can be limited or no power, they’ll love it even more!

5. Dickies Cameron Safety Boots

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £50

Health and safety is key for any tradesperson as there’s often numerous hazards in their line of work – especially on building sites. These Dickies work boots provide extremely high levels of foot protection! They have anti-penetration underfoot protection and a composite toe cap instead of a steel toe cap for electrical resistance. They’re metal-free, anti-static, SRC slip resistant, fuel/oil resistant and waterproof. They’re made of durable leather with a breathable mesh lining, energy-absorbing sole, removable foam insole and padded collar/tongue for the highest comfort.

6. Metabo AS 20 L Vacuum Cleaner / Dust Extractor

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £108

One of the main hazards that trade workers face is the construction dust created by their power tools. Regularly breathing in construction dust can seriously damage their health, so keeping their work environment dust-free is a priority! The Metabo AS 20 L can be used as both a vacuum cleaner and as a dust extractor for power tools. It’s an L class unit which is the minimum filter class that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends for extracting mixed/lower toxicity dusts in the workplace. It’s compact and lightweight with an impressive 20 litre capacity, plus it can be used on both dry solids and liquids for excellent flexibility! It automatically turns off once the maximum fill level is reached when vacuuming liquids to prevent the container from overflowing.

Before you purchase this gift: If the recipient works on construction sites, they’ll likely need an M class extractor. This is the minimum filter class that the HSE recommends for extracting wood dust and silica dust (from cutting concrete, etc.) in the workplace. We have a great range of M class dust extractors starting at £299 here! The extractor will also need to have 110v power (instead of 240v) which is the accepted safe standard for building sites. You can select the power from the drop-down box at the top of the product page.

7. Bosch GLM 500 Digital Laser Measure

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £94.80

Any tradesperson will have a need for this multi-functional Bosch measuring device. It’s a 50m rangefinder and a 360° inclinometer in one handy tool – measure distance, height AND incline! It’s compact and easy to operate with memory function for storage of up to 20 measurements. It automatically shuts down after five minutes of inactivity for optimum battery use, plus it has IP 54 dust and splash protection so the recipient can have peace of mind if they work in harsh conditions on building sites.

8. Armorgard TB1 TuffBank Van Tool Vault

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £214.99

Sadly, tool theft from trade workers’ vans has increased by 54% over the last two years, with a van being broken into every 23 minutes. This Armorgard vault is a simple and reliable solution for keeping the recipient’s tools safe and secure inside their work van! The TuffBank is the brand’s best-selling secure tool vault. It sets the industry benchmark for quality thanks to its unique features which provide ultimate safety and security. It has been tested and certified by Sold Secure and Secured by Design and is virtually impossible to break into! It comes with a mounting kit so the recipient can easily secure the box to their van floor for increased stability and security.

Perfect gift for any trade – especially joiners, carpenters, shop fitters, floor installers, electricians, plumbers, tilers, bathroom fitters
Price: £83.94

This Bosch multi-tool is handy to have in any tool box! It’s the most versatile tool around and can be used for a wide range of smaller tasks including cutting, sawing, sanding, rasping, scraping and polishing various materials. It has a powerful 300W motor for fast work progress and a Starlock interface which ensures a 3D connection between the motor and accessory (blade, sanding pad, etc.) for 100% power transfer!

Before you purchase this gift: If the recipient works on building sites, the multi-tool will need to have 110v power (instead of 240v) which is the accepted safe standard for construction sites. You can select the power from the drop-down box at the top of the product page.

We also have a great range of cordless multi-tools starting at £93 here! These are ideal if the recipient already has a cordless tool kit or, again, works on construction sites where there can be limited or no power.
