Looking for an easy “starter set” gift for relatives who’re just starting to get their hands dirty? Stanley’s making it easy by combining their products into quite functional tool kits. Pictured above, for example, is their FatMax Xtreme kit, which includes a 25′ tape, a marker, a utility knife, a rip claw hammer, a box beam level, a chalk box, a FuBar, a demolition driver set, and an auto trigger clamp — all in a handy open-mouth tool bag — for $250. Other sets range lower and higher in price.
They also offer a ton of other kits, including a DIYers kit, a “Gadget Guru” kit, an auto enthusiast’s set, two woodworker’s sets, and a “Do-It-Herself” kit. And kudos to Stanley for offering a women’s kit that’s not chock full of cheap pink crap! The “DIH” kit includes real tools like a 16′ tape rule, a multi-purpose saw, pliers, and a stud sensor — plus lots of crafting items, like a hot glue gun, staple gun, and a snap-off knife.
All in all, Stanley’s offering eleven different kits — each worth a look this holiday season. We had a little trouble finding them locally or via Google Products, but if you click the “Buy Online” button on any of the Stanley pages, they’ve helpfully set up links to online distributors who have ’em in stock.
