With Valentine’s Day just a day away, it’s time you put some thought into what you’re going to give your sweetheart. Depending on who you’re shopping for, we don’t always think it’s necessary to make a huge gesture with a Valentine’s Day gift. But you can treat someone to a little present, even if you know it’s just something they need rather than something they want. For the homeowner or decorating-obsessed, a tool could be the perfect way to make their crafting or projects just a little bit easier.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite must-have items, from the do-it-all pocket knife to the all-purpose flashlight.

TOP ROW:

Whether you’ve just purchased your first house or you’re just now getting into renovation projects, a flashlight is one of those items that you never think to buy until you’re elbow-deep in a project and it’s too late. The Maglite LED Flashlight is a dependable light with a sleek design that’s used by everyone from your professional contractor to your scout leader.

A garden hose may not be the most glamorous gift you’ve ever given, but it is something that helps a house run smoothly. With spring around the corner, it’s sure to get a lot of action in the coming months.

Forum associate Chris Long swears by this utility knife, insisting that it’s the most useful one he owns!

MIDDLE ROW:

For an avid gardener, we bet this tool would make weeding chores simpler. Forum associate George Zezelj insists that this pointing trowel really is a gardening tool!

If a grand romantic gesture is your Valentine’s Day style, a brand new grill is certainly going to get your sweetheart’s attention. Maybe they’ll remember what a great gift they received when they’re shopping next year!

If you have only one tool, Forum associate Eileen Claar says that the Milwaukee 11-in-1 Screwdriver is the one you want.

BOTTOM ROW:

If you’re shopping for a crafter, a staple gun is a great tool that can help your valentine tackle all sorts of projects, from re-upholstering to small crafts.

A 14-in-1 Painter’s Tool is an item that everyone needs in their tool box, especially if they like to tackle painting projects.

Forum associate Travis Poore says a Leatherman Tool is one of the best gifts he’s ever received — it’s more like 10 gifts in one!
