Tools Make the Best Gifts

December 14, 2018

Christmas presentIt becomes harder to purchase gifts for many of us who are growing older. We have already accumulated so much “stuff” and we really don’t want any more. I was just talking to my coworker, Curtis, about this very thing. When he said he might stop at a hardware store and perhaps pick up some Dremel tools for his girlfriend, I immediately agreed that tools are always a welcomed gift. Being a practical-minded person, I have always preferred to spend money on something useful, especially tools. And specialized tools are even better!

Having noticed that our “Tools” page has become pretty popular, I have been watching for good articles about new tools to add to our website. Unfortunately, instead of press releases, now many manufacturers are sending the new “infographics” in emails, which don’t work particularly well on a website designed for news articles.

Milwaukee Tools has a broad range of hand tools, power tools, specialized tools, instruments, site lighting and tool boxes. Head over to for lots of great ideas.

Personally, I love reading about the thermal technology of FLIR instruments. You will find several articles highlighting their amazing thermal imaging instruments and their effective application in the HVACR industry on our website, also under the Tools category.

If you are interested in hand tools and toolboxes, Stanley Tools has many gift ideas on their website:

I encourage you to scroll through the posts from this past year in the “Tools” category of this website, there you will find many articles spotlighting specialized tools for the industry as well as general tools, too many to mention them all by name here.

Good luck to those of you still looking for the perfect gift for your special someone.

Merry Christmas! May your holidays be safe and filled with love and good cheer.
