Dreaming of a DEWALT Christmas

With all the glitter and sparkles and beauty products and accessories I’ve been featuring lately, I thought it was time to shine a spotlight on a more manly man brand again. This time I’m looking at DEWALT, which produces contractor-grade tools and equipment but at reasonable prices and through a number of easy access points, making them a great pick if you’re still hunting for that perfect present right about now. Below, I’ve outlined five easy gift ideas that any man (or handy woman) in your life definitely wouldn’t say no to come Christmas morning.

DEWALT Gyroscopic ScrewdriverDEWALT 8V Max Gyroscopic Screwdriver Kit – $99 (follow link for stores)
When doing projects around the home (or more technically advanced electrical or HVAC projects), a good screwdriver makes getting the job done a breeze. This technologically advanced screwdriver has two positions – straight in-line or pistol – to allow you to get into the tightest of spaces while still maintaining maximum comfort. The gyroscopic functionality reacts to the movement of your wrist to either screw or unscrew something, as opposed to fiddling around with switches and knobs. Other nifty features include a long-lasting rechargeable battery and battery power gauge, as well as a ring light to illuminate tight, dark spaces. A smart pick for the handyman that could use a tool upgrade.

DEWALT Portable Charger RadioDEWALT Portable Charger Radio – $189
I don’t know what it is, but something about blasting some tunes when working on a heavy duty project somehow makes the day melt away. The trouble is of course, a regular radio is prone to damage as it’s shuffled around a busy job site. Beyond that, you may not have power if you’re say, working on an actual construction site or fiddling around in your tool shed in your backyard or even fixing up the deck at your cottage. This sturdy radio is rough-and-tumble ready and doesn’t actually require a power outlet to function. Powered up by rechargeable batteries, it can actually be recharged via USB, or plugged into the wall in the event you’ve got power but want something tough to withstand whatever debris might be flying around your workspace. Rest assured, while this is labeled a radio, it actually has hook-ups so you can plug in your MP3 player or CD player to control the playlist that will get you in the zone.

DEWALT Heated JacketsDEWALT Heated Jackets – $199 – $249 each
I know what you’re thinking – DEWALT makes jackets? Yes – but with a smart twist. These sturdy coats are designed for the outdoorsman (hunters, fishermen, skiers, construction workers, and even those with a long commute or a long driveway to shovel). The secret weapon? They’re actually heated coats that are battery powered, designed to provide your body with hours of warmth as you bask in Canada’s wilderness. The jackets themselves, as you can see, come in a few different styles, fabrics and patterns – from a basic black soft shell coat to a noise-limiting camo print coat with a removable hood, perfect for stalking prey in the woods. Each of the coats feature multiple heating zones and a temperature gauge with three settings so you can turn up the heat when you’re sitting pretty or crank it down when you’ve just endured a jog from one spot to the next. A clever yet unexpected choice, particularly for existing fans of the brand.

DEWALT Cordless Framing NailerDEWALT 20V Max Lithium Ion Brushless Framing Nailer – $539
It’s tools like these that give DEWALT the reputation of being a contractor’s preferred brand to get the job done, and done well. If someone in your life makes a living by doing construction or other similar work, treat them to something they may not ever buy themselves (or alternatively, for the home-based DIYer, gift ’em with a high-quality tool and who knows what projects will get done around the house). This is a hardcore tool that keeps pace with the builder by almost instantly (I’m talking two nails per second) and consistently driving nails into both soft and hard surfaces. And in the event a jam happens, it’s pretty easy to fix up, resulting in a lot less cursing and headaches when pushing through a major framing project.

DEWALT Tough SystemDEWALT ToughSystem – From $54.99
So you need to bring your tools and equipment places eh? The DEWALT ToughSystem makes moving your equipment from one spot to the next absolutely seamless – whether from your home or office to a job site or your cottage. This modular workshop storage solution consists of different sized cases that fit into an easy-to-move dolly. Each case can be used on its own and is durable enough to withstand a little jostling when not stacked up. Plus they’re water-resistant, ensuring extra protection for your rust-sensitive tools and equipment. While naturally ToughSystem is ideal for contractors and fix-it fiends, it also kind of works well for those with a lack of space that are looking for a smart storage solution for their tools. Simply tuck it into a corner or closet and grab the box you need when a job comes up.

Now that you’ve learned a little bit more about what your favourite handy person might be dreaming about this holiday season, perhaps you’d also like to treat them to something from DEWALT – like say, the heated jacket I’m giving away?

The jackets themselves, as you can see, come in a few different styles, fabrics and patterns – from a basic black soft shell coat to a noise-limiting camo print coat with a removable hood, perfect for stalking prey in the woods.
