Adrian B Blog Leave a Comment

So ninjas, is that time of the year again when we all go into that happiness and goodness mood. Where we are all looking to buy gifts for our coworkers, with whom we’ve spent a lot of hours this last year. For our loved ones, friends and family.

Yes … I’m talking about Christmas time Ho Ho Ho 🎅

And I know…

…we can go crazy and sometimes, have huge headaches because we don’t know what gift to buy for our handyman dad or for our brave moms who work in the construction industry.

☛  btw … well done to all the women who are brave enough to step into such a male-dominated industry: hard-hat off to you ladies

35 best gifts ideas for construction workers and building professionals infographic

Back to where we were.

Maybe you simply want to give a gift to your hands-on granddad who is one of those crazy DIY enthusiasts.

It might be early now, depending on when you are visiting this site, October or November.

But some of us likes to get ready with the presents, waaaay before the Christmas rush.

And some of us … for many reasons, we leave it to the last minute.

Sounds familiar? 🙂

I know!

Well, whatever might be the case, I thought I should put together a list of gift ideas for constructions workers and DIYers.

This will release a bit of pressure from your shoulders (I hope) and will help you decide easier what presents to shop for this Christmas.

Since ninjaDIY.com is a construction/DIY related blog … I believe my ideas should be quite close to what your colleagues and loved ones might like to get from Santa Claus 🙂

The list is a mix of tools, gadgets, accessories and other things that might not necessarily be related to building professionals … but they are the latest trends in gifts and might actually inspire you.

There are not listed in any particular order, so the first one doesn’t mean is the best or the last one it doesn’t mean is the worst.

So let’s go into it!

In the construction industry, many times (most of the times actually) the food that we eat on the site canteen is ... let's say not the best quality.

#9. Beard Grooming Kit For Men Care: Best Gift For Bearded Builders

man grooming beard, one of the best gifts for construction guys

See Details - Other Ideas & What People Are Saying About This Item On Amazon

This is something that I see more and more for the last few years. Growing a beard became a culture. There are tons of websites talking and teaching how to trim a beard perfectly.

I'm not gonna do that here though 🙂

Continual maintenance is part and parcel of growing an epic beard. A poorly groomed beard is not only a turn-off, but it can also lower a man's self-esteem.

This is a really nice piece of kit to buy for those of you who have friends with beards. Could be a good X-mas present for contractors who love to have a long and beautifully maintained beard.

Whether for yourself or for a hairy friend, boss or relative, this kit is all you need to ensure you always have wonderful whiskers. 🙂

Now ... this is a gift that I would like for myself.

Santa Claus, if you read this post of mine ... please Santa, I would like a smartwatch like this one.

I was a good boy 🙂 I Promise!

Many colleagues who like to take care of themselves, they bought this watch or similar to use it for example as a health & fitness tracker. How many steps they do in a day and things like that.

I would love to have a smartwatch to use it with my Samsung smartphone.

It will give me a lot more freedom when I do DIY or working on building sites. It has some crazy awesome features this watches. Depending on the budget, the smartwatch will have more or fewer features.

Could be a great Christmas gift for construction professionals.

Did you know you can take a call with the watch?! You don't even have to talk your phone out of your pocket. Amazing!

#15. Heavy-Duty Apron: Woodworking Gifts For Dad/Mom

best Christmas gift for a carpenter: a heavy-duty apron to be used in the woodshop

Read What People Are Saying About This Item On Amazon

This heavy-duty apron I believe it could be a great gift for someone who works with metal or woodwork.

Just by mentioning metal, I'm sure it comes to mind some flames, sparks, hot liquids and all that dangerous stuff for someone's health and safety.

For woodworking is awesome as well. It will repel water and the person who will receive this as a Christmas gift ... will be very happy, that finally, his/her clothes will be clean at the end of their shift or task.

Not to mention that will keep the person safe from the above-mentioned hazards: sparks, flames, hot liquids and so on.

If you know someone doing woodworking or that works with metal...this could be a great gift for her/him.

#16. Worktunes Wireless Hearing Protection with Bluetooth Technology And AM/FM Radio

ear noise protection headphones could be a perfect christmas gift for granddad

See Details - Other Ideas & What People Are Saying About This Item On Amazon

Construction sites are so noisy. Even if we take many measures to bring that noise down ... some of us are more sensitive than others to noise.

I hate to work when people are doing a lot of noise around me. But many times there is nothing you can do about it ...

... other than just protect yourself from damaging your hearing when these situations occur by using ear protection.

And the advantage of this potential gift here is that you can even listen to some music. Smooth 🙂

It might not be the most unique Christmas gifts for him or her ... but it definitely adds something very personal and singular to it once you have engraved that special person's name on that hammer.

It will be a one-of-a-kind Christmas gift for someone working in the construction industry.

#18. Heavy Duty Mobile Case: An Inexpensive Gift For Builders

heavy-duty mobile phone case perfect inexpensive Christmas gift for builders

See Details - Other Ideas & What People Are Saying About This Item On Amazon

It really is one of the best gifts (for me anyway) ...

... simply because I'm a mess when it comes to keeping my mobile safe at work.

This year was a bit better since I've learned my lesson the hard way and bought myself a case to protect my Samsung smartphone.

Last year though ... was a pretty sad one.

I've damaged (beyond repair) 3 smartphones whilst working on a construction site.

That cost me MUCH MUCH MUCH more than if I would've just gone and bought one earlier 🙁

Anyway, as I've said, I've learned my lesson. This one could be a good X-mas gift for any PRO in the construction industry.

#19. Polarized Safety Glasses - Small Xmas Gifts For Builder Friends

Very Awesome Polarized Safety Glasses cool small christmas gift for builder friends

Read What People Are Saying About This Item On Amazon

A pair of safety glasses is meant to obviously keep safe any construction pro or DIYer from getting anything into their eyes.

I've seen people who had severely damaged the eye whilst cutting concrete for example. One little stone fired up at the speed into your eyes ... and that's enough to lose your vision forever.

So, a pair of safety glasses is a MUST for any PRO.

But, nowadays, it's more than that. We want to look cool as well 🙂

If you live and work in a very sunny area (lucky you) ... this type of safety glasses will give your eyes some shade as well.

Which, I'm sure, it's so much appreciated.

A coffee machine?! For A Construction Worker??? 🙂

Yes, I love to have a good cup of coffee. My wife is from Brazil and we make some really nice coffees at home with freshly grinned coffee powder.

And when I go to work, most of the times the coffee that's available onsite ... is instant coffee. Not for me!

If I'm really desperate for a coffee I'll have one from the canteen but most of the times I'll wait to finish my shift to go home to my Mrs and make a real coffee.

If your dad or mom are construction professionals ... they might like to have this coffee machine as a Christmas present. 

BEFORE YOU BUY IT ... JUST MAKE SURE THEY LIKE COFFEE AND NOT OTHER DRINKS 🙂

The tape measure is one of those tools in the building industry that haven't really made any huge changes over the last years, decades. I mean, there is not too much to do to it, right?

It's just a measuring tape.

But I already like them. They do something really cool in terms of how they work.

Apparently, you have warm them in hot water. Leave them to chill a little bit and then you will mold the plugs to the right size and shape of your ear.

Yep, this is one of the best gifts that you can give to a construction worker.

Whether is your dad, brother, son or uncle...

...this piece of kit, a job site radio player makes our days so much better.

When everything seems to slow down, and you watch at the clock and it seems that the time doesn't go by ...

we listen to some "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi 🙂 It puts me on the right mood.

It can help productivity for some of us as well. I do tend to do things much faster with some music that I like in the background.

Some of the best job site players for construction pros comes with Bluetooth.

The higher-end models come with a built-in battery charger that will do both: play the radio + charging your tools batteries.

Read What People Are Saying About This Item On Amazon

This jacket will keep your dad, brother, wife or mother ... warm in winter or in windy conditions.

It's an amazing piece of kit. The lucky one who receives this as Xmas gift .... might not want to take it off anymore 🙂

The Milwaukee version of this heated jacket doesn't have a hood.

You might want to check out the DeWalt. They do have a heated jacket as well and comes with a hood.

If they don't want to take the jacket off anymore as I said above, no problem.

The jacket looks like a normal urban jacket. So if they manage to keep it nice and clean they can use it as a casual jacket as well during the winter.

#26. Lower Back Pain Protection Belt for Men & Women in Construction

a back belt protection could be a very good christmas gift for a hard working man or women in the construction business

See Details - Other Ideas & What People Are Saying About This Item On Amazon

You know, many people tend to forget this, but we have to take care of our health and safety. No matter in which industry you work.

We have to think a bit more about our body and how we do things whilst at work.

This back protection belt is a very good thing to have if you work in construction. Especially if you do a lot of manual handling.

I see the bricklayer's helpers or the boys working with drywall.

They are carrying these heavy materials up and down all day long, five days a week (or more sometimes.). And they don't have any protection for their backs. They will badly regret that as they will get older.

If you know someone that does a hard job in construction or move up and down a lot, you might think to give them this belt as a gift.

Their backs will thank you 🙂

I for one, I'll put one pair of new safety boots on my list, see if Santa wants to bring this or other things that I've asked 🙂

But definitely, it's a win-win if you go after this when trying to decide what to buy for your mom, dad, friend, colleague that works in construction.

There is not too much to say about this other than you should go for good brands when it comes to safety boots.

Amazon has boots for all the budgets. Trust me, for builders and construction pros, the boots are the most important accessory that we have.

a genuine leather tool belt the best christmas gift for a carpenter

Read What People Are Saying About This Item On Amazon

When I see a nice tool-belt like this one ... the first thing that comes to my mind is a carpenter.

Of course, they are not the only ones who use tool-belts in construction. The guys and girls working with drywall as well they use this a lot.

Both of these two trades would have a nightmare nowadays doing their jobs without a tool belt.

It's extremely handy and it saves you from going up and down all the time for screws, hammer, drill, measuring tape or any other accessories that you might need.

This is one of those good gifts for construction workers that can't fail. It looks awesome and the quality is top notch.

#31. Ryobi Cordless Power Inflator Kit: The Best Friend Of A Builder Who Drives A Van

this christmas gift might save your colleagues from being late at work

Read What People Are Saying About This Item On Amazon

I remember how a colleague saved me for a couple of days by using an inflator similar to this one. I was driving a telescopic handler on a big project. And the tire caught a small screw that made the tire to lose air.

It would've taken hours for someone to come and fix the tire. Luckily he plugged in the inflator into my tires and that kept me going for a couple of more hours.

This is very common on construction sites. There are a lot of debris, nails, screws other things like that on the access road and it's very higly possible to puncture your tires.

Having one of these inflators ... it can save you of getting stuck in the middle of nowhere.

Pump a bit of air to get you to the next tire shop and carry on your journey!

Good thing to have in any general contractor's van!

I'll put this one my Christmas presents wish list 🙂

By using the 20v battery that you already might have if you use DeWalt Tools ... you can charge your phone and your tablet.

How cool is that?

I bet some of my coworkers of friends would love one of these as well. It could be an awesome gift for him or for her as well.

Read What People Are Saying About This Item On Amazon

If you really want to impress your mother or father with an Xmas gift ... here might be one of the ideas.

If both of them work in construction or something related where they use power tools quite a lot, I suggest you have a look at some kind of power tool combo-kits.

They are much cheaper than if you would buy them separately.

Again, I did mention this above when we were talking about safety boots ...

... if you dad and mom are making money using these tools, DON'T GO FOR CHEAP BRANDS!

They need to have the best tools possible in order to keep a high standard in their jobs.
