Figuring out what to get the DIYer who has everything or the new car owner who is just learning how to do at-home repairs can be a challenge. Pro-level mechanics tools might make a great “wow” item, but there are also a lot of helpful every day gift ideas that will be a big hit. Think about the person, the type of mechanical work that they do, and what you can get that might make it easier.

Something Better to See With
One of the most under-rated, yet very appreciated gifts is lighting. While it doesn’t sound like a lot of fun, there are some great options that will help your die-hard mechanic or budding DIYer take care of business – even in the dark. Quality LED flashlights with 65 lumens or more, and long battery life can be extremely helpful. Headlight lamps are also very popular with home mechanics and provide enough light to change tires, perform oil changes, and take care of other general repairs. Tripod stand lighting and other specialty lighting can also be popular choices. Stop by LaCava Brothers Auto Supply to see our full line of garage lighting options for that particular person on your gift list.
Hand Cleaner and Moisturizer
People who work with their hands regularly often suffer from very dry, cracked skin that can be painful and itchy – especially in the winter. Visit our product center to look at garage hand soap, cleansers, and even moisturizers that will help your mechanic feel better this holiday season and throughout the year. Many of the cleaners used by DIYers contains pumice and other abrasives designed to remove oil, dirt, and debris from hands. Even when using gloves, the irritants found in automotive chemicals and fluids and be downright annoying. If regular hand lotion and cleaners are leaving your loved one’s hands cracked and dry, consider stepping it up to professional skincare solutions.
While it can be challenging to know what tools to get for the mechanic who seemingly already has everything, multi-tool products are always a welcome gift. Think of it as the Swiss Army knife of garage tools, take a look at some of the top brands who make all-in-one screwdrivers, ratcheting bit drivers, nail pullers, box cutters, and much more. Ask one of our sales team members for information on our multi-tool options and other mechanics tool products at LaCava Brothers Auto Supply. Look for 6-in-1, 10-in-1, 20-in-1, and other similar type products for something that will really “wow” that mechanical person on your list.
There isn’t anyone who isn’t looking for new ways to store the things that they use the most. Mechanics often have large and cumbersome toolboxes or racks, but it’s nice to have more portable options when the situation calls for it. Tool organizers, belts, mini sets, and magnetic wrist or armbands can all be used to keep everything handy and within reach, even when working underneath a vehicle. Stools, kneeling pads, neck rests, and other garage-specific accessories are also very popular with mechanics who spend a lot of time working on their cars. High-quality gloves and safety gear will also impress and show that person on your list that you care.
Diagnostic Scan Tool
One of the best tech tools that you can get for a mechanic with any level of experience is a diagnostic scan tool. LaCava Brothers Auto Supply is featuring one for the holidays on our website and in our store for just $29.99. Designed to work with most 196 and later models, including American, European, and Asian vehicles, this performance tool reads and displays the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) for identifying issues within the car. It can turn off the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) or “Check Engine” light, erases DTC trouble codes, and resets the OBDII system. This is a great gift for car owners and mechanics alike.
