Gift Ideas for the Beginner DIYer

Shopping for a DIYer or new homeowner? This list is full of great gift ideas for beginner DIY projects.

Over the past three years of home improvement projects, I’ve picked up a variety of tools and project supplies. This gift guide includes the things I use most frequently that would be awesome gifts for a new homeowner or beginner DIYer.

Whether you’re shopping for a loved one or creating your own wishlist, check out this DIY gift guide for ideas at a variety of price points! (Hint: Many of these would make awesome stocking stuffers.)

Note: I typically link to national retailers that are easily accessible to all but don’t forget to check your favorite small businesses for these items as well. Small businesses can use your support this year more than ever!
