Tool Gifts for Men on the Homestead and Farm
A good multi-tool is essential for any farmer. Both my husband and I use ours all the time. The pliers and knife are probably the top tools on it, but I also use the screwdriver and saws often. My husband is way handier than I am so he utilizes many of the other tools. A matching holder is also a great gift.
Even though many multi-tools have knives on them. A good, stand-alone pocket knife is an essential farm tool. A good pocket knife can save a life. If for some reason, a farmer gets hung up or clothing caught, a knife is a lifesaver. A multi-tool usually needs two hands to open, whereas a knife can easily be opened with one hand. It is also a quick, easy tool to pull out to cut twine and a multitude of other things. I don’t know how many times, I have wished I had a knife.
Another essential tool, especially during the long, cold dark winter months, is a flashlight. During the depths of winter, many farmers don’t even start evening chores until after dark. A good flashlight comes in handy for doing many tasks in the dark from feeding cattle to looking for a lost animal. This flashlight is small but very bright. It would make a great stocking stuffer.
