Tool Box

The purchase of a first home is a happy occasion, and many times, those close to the first-time buyer want to give gifts that help make a house a home. Below is a gift guide to help with the inevitable projects and repairs that come with homeownership.

While there are a number of pre-assembled kits currently on the market that consumers may want to pick up as a gift, retailers can offer their expertise and drive sales by helping consumers create customized tool kits that can fit a variety of skill levels a homeowner might have, from beginner to advanced.

Some of the basic tools every homeowner needs are:

  • Hammer
  • Screwdrivers
  • Pliers
  • Picture-hanging Kit
  • Safety Glasses
  • Tape Measure
  • Level
  • Utility Knife
  • Flashlight
  • Allen Wrenches/Hex Keys
  • Spackle/Putty Knife
  • Adjustable Wrench

Additional useful items include gloves, a handsaw, pry bar, clamps, duct tape, super glue, adhesive remover (such as GooGone), and a lubricant (like WD-40). And don’t forget to include a heavy-duty tool bag, a must-have for keeping tools together and ready to go for any project.
