Upcycling and recycling old things into something new is a hot trend that we can all benefit from. Costs can start to rack up when buying new all the time and buying new can lead to more environmental waste, but thankfully do-it-yourself projects can help you save some extra cash — and the planet.
It might be difficult to find a gift for a DIY-aficionado, but there are some fundamental items everyone needs to get inspired and master their projects.
If you know a friend or family member who’s crazy about makeovers and upgrades, here are three perfect gift ideas.
- Quality tools. For the budding DIY-enthusiast, the art starts with the right tools. From power to hand tools, mechanic tool sets and more, Craftsman carries high-quality products that will help get any job done. Now available in-store and online at Lowe’s, Rona, Reno-Depot and Ace, these tools will help anyone muscle through any project and enjoy the pride that comes from a job well done.
- Subscriptions. For an exciting treat every month, consider buying them a subscription for arts and crafts projects and materials. Fuel their creativity by inspiring them with even more opportunities for using their hands to make something special.
- Gift cards. DIY is a lot of work, so help your loved one by presenting them with a gift card to their favourite home improvement or craft store. This lets them stock up on supplies without having to worry so much about the cost.
