Father’s Day is just around the corner which brings us to the same question we hear every year, What do fathers want for fathers day? Well that can be difficult to answer. It usually comes down to something he can buy for himself or something he knows you cant afford or is too afraid to ask because of the cost. But ultimately dads want either something to show appreciation or something that can be shared as an experience. So here are a few items that can be useful in the shop and around the house as well as be thankful for. All of the items can be found on Amazon or your local hardware store.

Help you dad get organized with this handy label maker from Brother. We all know that dad has bins of screws, fasteners and other misc hardware in the garage. Why not get him a label maker to help figure out whats in each container or bin. Also great for labeling wires behind the computer or TV. Dad will have fun placing labels everywhere. Be careful because they might have too much fun.

It really doesn’t matter what you are using them for, clamps are incredibly useful around the house and garage. I use them around the theater to hold back curtains, and in the studio to hold backdrops and reflectors. They are great for temporarily holding wood together when drilling or glue pieces together.

Every dad needs one of these, maybe three or four. And remember that label maker, this would be a great place to use it. We all know that dads don’t throw out any hardware.

This is one item I never thought about getting for the shop but it really does come in handy. It really helps with those small electronics, or repairing jewelry for mom. Add some extra hands for dad to fix those smaller items around the house. I no longer burn my fingers or solder the wire to tweezers when fixing small items.
