It’s hard to believe that Father’s Day is just a few short weeks away. Have you found the perfect gift for your dad, or the father figure in your life? If your dad loves working on DIY projects or tinkering around his home or yard, he’s in luck! HouseSmarts TV host, Lou Manfredini joined me for an interview this morning to share his favorite Father’s Day gift must haves from Craftsman Tools!
Candace Rose: With Father’s Day just a few weeks away, what are some great gifts that dads will love?
Lou Manfredini: “I have a whole collection of them here for you, Candace, and they come from our friends at Craftsman. Ace has had this partnership with Craftsman now for the last five years, so they put together four quick gift ideas that I think any dad will love. It starts with their 193 piece Mechanics Tool Set. This is the bad boy of tool sets. It comes in its own case, three different ratchet sizes, all the corresponding sockets in both standard and metrics, wrenches, specialty tools – you name it. There isn’t a thing that dad can’t assemble or disassemble with this kit. The beauty part of it is that this set is made in the USA and comes with a lifetime guarantee.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any other great gifts that will show dad that we care?
Lou Manfredini: “Absolutely. This is a nine piece socket set with easy to read numbers on the side (please see video above for details). It comes in standard and metric. We also have a cordless drill that is a 19.2 volt half inch drill driver.
The thing to remember when it comes to buying cordless drills is the higher the voltage, the stronger the drill. This uses lithium ion battery technology which means the battery will hold the charge up to 18 months, and it’s their heavy duty XCP battery, which means it’s going to work and work and work. When you give this to dad, you know it’s going to last.
Finally, if dad just wants to kick back and relax, there’s a four piece tumbler set – heavy duty nice glasses, comes with a bucket and coasters, so dad can put his favorite beverage in it and kick back and relax on Father’s Day.”
Candace Rose: That’s perfect! Are there any other must haves for dad?
Lou Manfredini: “Well, the one thing they can find is if they go to their local participating Ace store (along with these gifts) there’s a who lot of other items that are available – both non-tool and tool items so you can make sure that dad is all set for Father’s Day.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share with us?
