Skip the boring striped tie this Father’s Day and surprise your loved one with the gifts he really wants and needs. Whether the “dad,” “pop,” “father” or man in your life is a novice or seasoned do-it-yourselfer, mechanic or woodworker, the following gift recommendations from Lowe’s are sure to spoil him on his special day. For the Do-It-Yourselfer From updating the kitchen backsplash to painting the extra bathroom, equip your DIY dad with the tools he needs to get projects done around the house all year long. Not sure what project Dad has up his sleeve? The Rockwell Oscillating Tool Kit (Item #404381) is versatile enough to saw, scrape, polish and even remove grout. It’s perfect for dads with an endless honey-do list. For the Mechanic Would your dad rather spend time in the garage than on the golf course? Rev up his engine by getting the perfect tools for any automotive repair. If his toolkit is missing pieces from use over the years, it’s probably more of a hindrance than a help. The Kobalt 24-Piece Mechanics Tool Set (Item #338510) is constructed of chrome steel for durability and comes with a case to keep Dad organized. If you can’t be there to help with repairs, the Kobalt Variety Pack Screwdriver (Item #451561) can be his extra set of eyes and hands with bright white LED bulbs and a magnetic telescopic pick-up tool that extends more than a foot. For the Woodworker If you’re lucky enough to have a dad who loves woodworking, ensure he has the right saw at the right time. Perfect for novice or skilled woodsmen, the Dewalt Woodworking Variable Speed Corded Jigsaw (Item #47180) makes faster and more aggressive cuts to a variety of materials. And don’t forget cleanup. The Shop-Vac Shop Vacuum (Item #334645) will remove all the dust and debris, leaving the garage in the same order it was found. For the Professional Whether it’s on the job or around the house, pros put their skills to work every day as plumbers, electricians and contractors. With four tools in one, the Dewalt 18-Volt Cordless Combo Kit (Item #79897) can elevate Dad from amateur to pro by providing easy access to a flashlight, drill, driver and saw. The Kobalt 2-Drawer Utility Cart (Item #460636) can hold old and new tools to keep him organized and efficient. If you’re still unsure about the perfect gift for Dad this year, choose from three father-themed gift cards and leave the rest up to him.
