Holiday Gift Ideas Part 1 – Cordless Power Tools

This holiday season give the gift that keeps on giving, Power Tools. When it comes to power tools the most popular gifts and probably the most fun are cordless power tools. Cordless power tools are however a tricky gift to give. Many people are very loyal to their favorite line of tools (i.e. Bosch, Milwaukee, etc) and it’s not always the cheapest option on the list. Also there are a lot of discount cordless tools you can pick up next to the checkout at any big box home improvement store which aren’t even worth the plastic they are made of. Seriously be careful some cheap cordless saws can only make 3-5 full powered cuts on a charge? Who know why they even make these things other than to trick uninformed buyers. You would be much better off giving a nice quality corded model that will last for years. Power Tools are not like that store brand cereal that’s almost the same as your Lucky Charms you can buy for half the price.

Cordless drills are a safer bet as they normally hold a charge a little longer, but again don’t go cheap. There are several models of compact cordless drills that are relatively inexpensive, are very compact (i.e. Bosch Pocket Driver or Milwaukee Micro Driver)and hold a charge much longer than the discount brands. If you want to give a quality cordless tool gift at a low price this would be the way to go. If you have a little larger budget there are great deals on multiple tools and combo kits.
