Gifts For DIY’ers Under $25

Top Picks & Holiday Deals

#1. RYOBI Impact Rated Driving Kit (70-Piece) – On Sale For $12.97

Why This Is My Top Pick:

What I love about this driving kit (other than the price) is that it is an awesome go-to for pretty much any project. It also already comes in an organized modular case and is easy to store away. It’s legitimately a perfect gift for a DIY stocking stuffer!

Top Picks & Holiday Deals

#5. Multi-Material Drill and Drive Kit (300-Piece) with Case – On Sale for $39.97

Why This Is My Top Pick:

I have a serious soft spot for drilling and driving sets… especially when they are priced well. If you’re willing to spend a little bit more money for your loved ones, you’ll be able to get them a kit that has it all. I use this kit for many of my projects because it’s perfect for drilling into wood, metal, and plastic. It includes a magnetic bit holder, hex key, countersink bit, center punch, and 296 other accessories to make projects a breeze.

Other Picks

#1. Leatherman 14-Tool REV Multi-Purpose Tool – $39.97

Top Picks & Holiday Deals

#1. BLAZE 165 ft. Laser Distance Measurer with Bluetooth and Full Color Display – On Sale for $99.97 (33% Off)

Why This Is My Top Pick:

This laser is AWESOME for big projects. I wish I had it when we were building my shed-shop, because it takes the guess work out of measuring. It finds measurements within 1/16″ and displays it on a big, bright, colored screen. Even cooler, this level can also measure volume as well (which is great for resin & concrete projects)!

#4. RIDGID 16 Gal. 6.5-Peak HP NXT Wet Dry Shop Vacuum with Fine Dust Filter and Accessories – On Sale for $99.00 (38% Off)

Why This Is My Top Pick:

My RIDGID shop vacuum was my first ever dust collection system, and I still rely on RIDGID’s shop vac every day. This particular system comes with multiple accessories and is installed on a super tough rear-wheel cart. If I could, I’d legit buy this for everyone I know!

Edit (12/15): This product is no longer on sale for $99, but can be found at Home Depot for $159 including all 8 accessories and a fine dust filter. If you are looking for an alternative, check out this 16 gallon RIDGID dust vac that is $99!

Why This Is My Top Pick:

Recently, my dad and I renovated his basement, and I wish we had this drywall screwdriver on hand to finish it. The brushless motor provides 50% longer run time and extend tool life, and it comes with a lifetime warranty. It’s a seriously good gift for someone who loves working on their home!

#4. 18-Volt ONE+ Lithium-Ion Cordless 4-Tool Super Combo Kit with (2) 1.3 Ah Batteries, 18-Volt Charger, and Tool Bag – On Sale for $129.00

Top Picks & Holiday Deals

#1. RIDGID Heated Jacket – On Sale for $199 (w/ Battery & Charger)

Why This Is My Top Pick:

OKAY. This jacket is UNREAL. If you’re like me and live in a place that actually gets cold in the winter, you need this jacket. It has three heat settings, and charges up in a traditional RIDGID charging port. It also has a removable hood and four pockets, which makes it super comfortable and useful.
