As far as “practical gifts” go, tools are among the most exciting to give and receive — especially when you nab an incredible deal. After all, a brand-new drill or a bulk-buy hand tool set is worth more than the sum of its parts. When you’re shopping for a handy spouse or an aspiring DIY-er, the physical tool is a gateway to the real gift: an entire world of home improvements, creative endeavors and tinkering projects that just became possible.

We might not know which tools are perfect for your recipient and their usual projects, but there’s certainly no shortage of holiday tool deals to choose from. Check out the best last-minute deals on power tools, tool storage, tool gift bundles and other home repair staples.

You Can’t Go Wrong with a Multi-Tool

Gerber Gear 30-001364N Suspension-NXT, 15-in-1 Multitool Knife and Nite Ize DoohicKey Keychain Multi Tool

If practicality is your main gift-giving consideration, it’s hard to beat a solidly constructed multi-tool.

Generic “gifts for him”-style multi-tools are notoriously unreliable in terms of quality, so it’s definitely worth springing for a tried-and-true brand (especially at a significant discount). We suggest the following multi-tool deals:
