- A recent graduate – The uncertainty of today’s job market is enough stress, without having to struggle to fix things in a new place.
- A young professional – Their new apartment would certainly feel more cosy and personal if they could decorate it themselves on a budget.
- A newlywed couple – Most marriages include some form of “Honey, do…” lists, so give them both some good tools to make the work easier.
- A new homeowner – Help them save money toward the mortgage by being able to do some basic home repairs and maintenance themselves.
- Mother’s Day – Who says tools are just for Dad? Mom is often the chief decorator, so why not give her the best tools for her home projects?
