With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, now’s the time to start thinking about some gift options that might appeal to that mechanic who’s captured your heart. Whether you tend to stick with the strictly practical, plan to veer off the road to find the unusual or decide on a combination of the two, we’re here to offer you some options. Here’s our list of the 10 best Valentine gift ideas for grease monkeys.
DEWALT Mechanic Tool Set
DEWALT is a name you can trust when it comes to supplying your mechanic with quality tools. With sets designed specifically for a mechanic’s needs, you’ll find 8-piece wrench sets in metric as well as standard options all the way up to a 205-piece all-inclusive combination. DEWALT provides the novice, as well as the seasoned mechanic, with just the right socket for that hard-to-reach bolt.
Mechanic’s Light Bar
Practicality is underrated, and not always cheap. As anyone who’s ever tried a makeshift car repair in the dark can attest, there’s a whole lot to be said for the power of lumens – 5,000 of them to be exact. Created by a savvy employee who was a former mechanic, this Light Bar from the Big Ass company provides 48 continuous hours of luminosity on its rechargeable.
The Corner Handmade Mechanics Hand Scrub Gift Set
There’s no reason why a mechanic’s hands need to be synonymous with rough and dry paws. The Corner Handmade provides unique gift sets that include soaps, pumice powder scrub, and lotions in your choice of scents. You have the option of choosing one of the predesigned gift sets or mixing and matching them. You will receive your selections all neatly gift boxed.
A Unique Wall Clock
Whether learning how to bill hours, or just wanting to know when to take a break, your mechanic needs to keep track of the time. Some unique options to consider include those offered by Vinyl Spirit Gifts, like the repurposed vinyl record celebrating the 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302.
Steven Shaver Designs
On the topic of repurposing, Steven Shaver offers creative insight for breathing new life into what would otherwise simply be discarded. His vision provides a definite industrial appeal, such as with a Chevy Auto Engine Timing Set turned wall clock. Maybe your part-time DIYer likes to split his time between the garage and dressing up for an evening out. A set of cufflinks refashioned from an Audi’s salvaged piston rod bearings creates a one-of-a-kind balance between pastimes.
Portable Tool Roll
For the mechanic who likes to travel light, yet values being prepared, Kruk Garage’s Tool Roll is an indispensable gift. The hand-waxed leather roll with buckle closure is offered in several color combinations, but each features an interior that provides multi-purpose slots as well as a zippered pouch to accommodate an assortment of the most necessary tools. Flat, it measures a generous 11.8 x 19.7 inches, and it rolls to a compact diameter of 5.1 inches when full of tools.
Back in the shop, one item that your DIYer will appreciate is a magnetic fender cover. It’s easy to chip up or scratch a vehicle’s paint while reaching in to work under the hood. Pep Boys is a reliable and convenient South Florida supplier for your car needs.
The difference between a well-stocked garage and one that just manages is in the details. Every mechanic recognizes the value of shop towels. A pack of 50 offered by another South Florida reliable retailer, Advanced Auto’s Autocraft brand fits the bill. Easy to spot in bright red, these towels are washable and reusable.
Omega Professional Z Creeper
Sometimes getting at those hard-to-reach spots on your vehicle can seem nearly impossible. That’s why the Omega Professional Z Creeper is such a lifesaver. Its 40″ length and easy wheeled maneuverability keep your mechanic’s back and joints well protected while performing impressive feats of repair.
Arcan 3-Ton Aluminum Floor Jack
Of course, one of the easiest ways for your mechanic to fit in those hard-to-reach spots is with the assistance of a floor jack. Arcan is a highly-rated option that offers stability in an easy-to-use platform. It also folds up into a compact size that allows for easy mobility.
