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 an impact-resistant case and robust floor stand 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.

You can also get this light on a height-adjustable tripod for £49.99 here, or two lights (shine in different directions) on a height-adjustable tripod for £74.94 here! These floodlights provide more extensive illumination and allow the recipient to angle the light wherever it’s needed – the perfect gift for anyone who works on building sites where there’s poor lighting or none at all!

It receives both AM/FM and digital stations, and a Bluetooth connection allows the recipient to listen to music from their mobile device.

Dickies Cameron Safety Boots

5. Dickies Cameron Safety Boots (Size 7-11)

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £45

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 and oil resistant; and waterproof. They’re made of durable leather with a breathable mesh lining, energy-absorbing dual density polyurethane sole, removable foam insole, and padded collar and tongue for the highest comfort.


Metabo AS 20 L Dust Extractor

6. Metabo AS 20 L Vacuum Cleaner / Dust Extractor

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £106.80

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 lung health and cause diseases like COPD, emphysema and lung cancer, 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 is used for extracting mixed/lower toxicity dusts in the workplace. It’s compact and lightweight with an impressive 20 litre capacity, and 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 soil, sand, cutting concrete, etc.) in the workplace. We have a great range of M class dust extractors starting at £370.20 here! The extractor will also likely need to have 110v power (instead of 240v) which is the accepted safe standard for building sites.


Bosch GLM 120 C Digital Laser Measurer

7. Bosch GLM 120 C Digital Laser Measurer

Perfect gift for any trade
Price: £193.92

Any tradesperson will have a need for this multi-functional Bosch measuring device! It can measure distance, height, area, volume AND incline! It has a digital viewfinder with zoom function for the highest precision and IP 54 dust and splash protection which will give the recipient peace of mind if they work in harsh conditions on building sites. It also has Bluetooth for remote control, transferring and documenting measurements, and creating digital floor plans (the perfect gift for surveyors, engineers and architects) all on their mobile device! It comes with a micro USB cable (for transferring data to their laptop/computer), micro USB charger, carrying stap and protective bag.

You can get the set version with a tripod for greater flexibility and precision for £289 here!

8. Armorgard OxBox OX1 Van Tool Storage Box

Sadly, tool theft from trade workers’ vans has increased by 30% over the last year with a van being broken into every 23 minutes. This Armorgard vault is a simple and dependable solution for keeping the recipient’s tools safe and secure inside their work van! It has a robust 2mm steel plate construction with extra folds in ‘vulnerable’ areas for the highest security. There’s anti-cut rollers in the deadbolt and a reinforced internal anti-jemmy bar which will deter any potential thief! It has robust, 5-lever deadlocks which are all keyed alike, providing both security and convenience. There’s also serial numbers on the keys which enables replacement overnight, so the recipient will never be stuck without their tools! Hydraulic gas arms allow the lid to lift easily and smoothly, and the recipient can add castors (not included) to the base of the box to make it more mobile – perfect for the workshop or construction site!
