Fathers Day Gift Idea




Sorry all...I forgot to take pictures of my dads fathers day gift. So imagine with me :) I went to Harbor Freight (there are quite a few in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming) and purchased my dad a bunch of mini tools for the grandkids to help him out with. I know that Home Depot and other hardware/tool stores sell mini/stubby tools.

My dad is very hard to buy for. He buys what he wants and needs, but I knew that he would never buys tools for the grandkids to help him out with. I don't think he even knew some of these tools existed. My dad loves having them help him fix things in the yard and on the farm.

I gave him the gift yesterday because he will not be in town on his birthday and he LOVED it. But more importantly all the kiddos loved it. My daughter cannot stop asking me when she can help grandpa fix things.

The set included:
  • stubby hammer
  • mini wrench set
  • small tape measure
  • small ratchet (1/4")
  • sockets for the ratchet
  • small adjustable wrench
  • small level
  • small thing of electrical tape
  • set of small pliers
  • set of vice scripts (I am not sure how to spell them but they are like adjustable wrenches but they lock in place)
  • screw driver (with many little bits)

This is also a great idea for your little boy or tom boy girl :)
