Gift Guide: Tools Every Dad Needs

The holidays are right around the corner, and that means we’re all making sure we have gifts for everyone on our lists. For many of us, Dad is a tricky one to find the right gift for. Luckily Aubin Ace Hardware has the solution: tools! Whether your dad loves to fix things that aren’t broken or just needs a set of the necessities, there will be at least a few tools that he’ll be happy to receive as a gift. And since we have a great selection of tools in NH, you’ll be able to find them at Aubin.


Cordless Drill/Impact Driver

Every household needs a good drill or impact driver. Even if your dad isn’t the type to be constantly building things, having a drill handy makes many things so much easier. Need to mount that new TV? It will be so much easier with a cordless drill.


Allen Wrench Set

Allen wrenches are handy for lots of things. If you need to put together some flat-pack furniture, you’ll be glad you have a set of these wrenches. The one that comes in the box is usually of low quality. And if Dad has his own set, two people can work at the same time and put that shelf together twice as fast.

Everyone needs a good multitool. An appliance needs a quick fix? You have pliers in your pocket. Do you need scissors or wire cutters but can never seem to put your hands on them? Pull out your handy multitool!



You might not think of a headlamp as a tool, but once you’ll wonder what you did before you started keeping one in your toolbox. You won’t have to hold a flashlight in your mouth or find someone to help you out. A headlamp is also handy if you need to use the snowblower or fire up the generator in the dark.


Grill Tools

Is your dad more of a grillmaster than a handyman? Then you can’t go wrong with a nice set of grill tools. He may not be able to use them until the spring, but it will give him something to look forward to through the long, cold winter months.
