Top Idea for the DIY Dude
Nothing says ‘I love you’ more to the DIY dude than a big, expensive and frankly unnecessary power drill. As a woman, you know that he’ll probably only ever use it once, just to prove a point, and then it’ll sit in his shed or garage with the rest of his tools.
However, he will consider it one of the most essential items in his collection, and he’ll sleep a little easier knowing that if he wanted to or needed to he could put a great big hole in the wall as if the wall were made of butter. If your man loves indulging in a little DIY then simply head to your nearest DIY store and find the biggest drill on the shelf!
