Christmas is just around the corner, and with an estimated 1 million construction workers and tradespeople across Australia, chances are there’s a builder, plumber, architect, or project manager in your life that could use a thoughtful gift.
A majority of jobsites close over Christmas for a shutdown period, giving these hard-working Australians a chance to spend quality time with family and friends. With the long and hot Australian summer we are having right now, the time off during the Christmas period is a welcome opportunity to relax and recharge your batteries away from the harsh conditions of a summer jobsite.
Jobsite spoke with Cameron Rist, Tools Category Manager at Bunnings Warehouse, to get his opinion on the best gift ideas for tradespeople and construction workers this Christmas.
“For those who love their trade or can’t get enough of D.I.Y., there’s nothing quite like adding the latest and greatest new power tool, hand tool, or set of tool accessories to your tool box this Christmas,” says Rist.
“No matter what you’re after, Bunnings has the widest range of products to help you find the perfect pick for everyone.”
Bunnings’ Picks for Christmas
Featuring an assortment of titanium drill parts, this set includes a magnetic drive guide and a compact rapid load head.
Now, this is cool – a bluetooth stereo system with bumper plates and metal pipes integrated into the design for protection against rough handling. It also has AUX-in for playing audio from an external source, so the jobsite can be filled with music and radio all day long.
This backpack is a versatile and ergonomic option for the jobsite or on the go. It has plenty of storage options for tools, notepads, laptops, and more. The durable materials will protect the valuable items inside the backpack from the sometimes harsh conditions of the jobsite.
About the size of two twenty cent pieces, this is the ultimate pocket-sized measuring tool, and a perfect high-tech substitute for a tape measure. Even better, it is USB rechargeable, making it easy to measure quick jobs around the house and the jobsite.
