When I first started blogging I posted a page called “Every Woman’s Tool Box.” If you look at the links at the top of this site you will see it!

I realized today that some of you may be searching for last minute gift ideas (for your wife/girlfriend/college student!)

As I mentioned in that post, I asked for a toolbox full of tools for Christmas one year! One of the BEST gifts I ever received!

For some reason it is so empowering for a woman to be able to hang a picture or tighten loose hardware or door nobs…the ability to make any minor repair around the house.

If you are a guy, this will definitely shorten your “honey-do” list…you know, that list of mundane little tasks that your significant other needs you to do on your day off!

I put together a little tool box for my daughter when she went off to college…she loves it!

So guys…or mom’s of college students…go to Lowe’s and search around for a bunch of “little” tools…find a tool box small and light enough to keep tucked away in a closet…put a bow on it and PRESTO-BINGO! Awesome last minute gift!

In the little tool box or bag I would suggest the following…hammer, Phillips and flat screw driver, needle nose pliers, regular pliers, tape measure, 6” level, utility knife and blades, a stud finder, maybe a little socket set and a small box with an assortment of picture hangers, screws and nails.

The post also lists a lot of “big stuff” any DIYer might like…saws, sanders, clamps, nail guns, etc…but just the basics is all you really need if you aren’t into the whole DIY thing.

This may seem like a silly gift idea but most women I know would love this!

I hope you all have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! See you next year!
