5 Classic Gifts For Craftsmen


Looking for a good gift for the craftsman in your life? New gadgets and tools are always fun gifts to open! Trust us though, when choosing the right one, you should know that they’d rather have a high end classic that they can use again and again. Their talent makes them passionate about what they do, so help him bring out the best with one of these five gift suggestions:

Tool Tote

A tool tote is super handy around the house and helps any craftsman keep their tools organized. Carhartt makes a really beautiful one that can be embroidered with the recipient’s name or other 2-line personalization. It’s structured well with 11 exterior pockets and 6 interior ones, with more loops to hang tools! It’s made with water resistant fabric with grab handles that make it easy to carry and handy anywhere.

Leather Tape Measure

Measure twice and cut once with an exquisite leather-cased tape measure. Leatherology has one that comes in a variety of colors, and you can get it monogrammed with up to 3 initials or your company logo! It’s made with 60 inch tape measure and has a hidden push button in the center to retract it.

Stanley Heritage Cooler Combo

The Stanley lunch box and thermos are reminiscent of the lunch boxes and coolers from the 30s and 40s. The lunch box is made of steel to keep a sandwich nice and cool during extreme heat for your favorite craftsman. They can take a bunch of abuse and are practically indestructible. The thermos is a classic style with a cap that can be used as a cup – so they’ll always have a place to pour their cold beverage.

Rechargeable Work Light

Okay, we might need to call this the ‘new classic’ even though we all know that flashlights, lanterns, and work lights are a timeless solution on the job, whether it’s during nighttime or an emergency. But getting a rechargeable version takes it to a whole new level!! Stanley makes a cordless LED work light;  and this ‘BarFlex LED Worklight’ can stay at full power for 5 or more hours on one charge. Plus it sticks to many surfaces as well!

Safety Glasses

Let’s face it, a pair of good glasses or goggles are an absolute must for any craftsman. All that debris and dust on the job can be extremely dangerous, so having the right pair can feel like luxury! So treat your craftsman right and get ‘em a cool pair. If they work (or play) in the sun a lot, consider getting a polorized pair. They reduce glare and eye strain.
