We love a good do-it-yourself project here at Lifehacker. Here's some gift ideas for anyone else you know with the handyperson gene.
Swann Video Doorbell
Cost: $299 Where to get it: DSE Why it's a good choice: A great project for the week between Christmas and New Year -- rig yourself up a video answering system for the front door to keep away unwanted relatives.
Makita 10.8V LXT Mobile Drill
Cost: $238 Where to get it: Just Tools Why it's a good choice: Any self-respecting DIY-er will have a cordless drill, but a model sporting LED lights and a lithium ion battery is an impressive upgrade.
Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle
IKEA As-Is Raid
Cost: Depends Where to get it: IKEA Why it's a good choice: IKEA's As-Is section -- leftover bits, display models, random scurf -- is like DIY heaven. Choose some items and challenge your recipient to convert them into something useful. Picture by Ario
5 Tray Tool Box
Cost: $36.10 Where to get it: Trade Essentials Why it's a good choice: A tool box helps keep all your gear sorted, and the cantilevered design makes it easy to access everything. Did we mention that it's red?
Cost: £12.26 for a 12-pack Where to get it: Sugru Why it's a good choice: Here at Lifehacker, we love us some Sugru, flexible silicon you can use to repair and make all kinds of things. If you're feeling Scrooge-y, order this pack and pop a sachet into Christmas cards.
