(BPT) – The holidays are here and for the do-it-yourselfer who always has a list of “to-do” projects to tackle, a new tool makes a great gift. From the weekend warrior to automotive enthusiast, an addition to the tool box is certain to bring a smile to their face.

Here are some ideas from Craftsman to get you started finding the perfect gift for the DIYer on your list:

* Stocking stuffer – Craftsman Cap Wrench Bottle Opener

A tool box isn’t complete without a bottle cap opener for use during the rewarding and relaxing time at the end of the workday. Give your loved one’s stocking a little extra weight with this tool that looks like a traditional wrench with a fun twist. The patented fulcrum design opens a variety of bottle tops. Personalize it by having a name engraved on the handle.

* Everyday DIYer – 65-in-1 Universal Wrench-

This innovative wrench empowers users to work on 16 different fastener sizes including inch and metric. The universal design also gives it access to six different types of fasteners -2 pt., 4 pt., 6 pt., 12 pt., Spline and External Torx. No matter what size or shape nut or bolt you encounter, this tool has got you covered, lightening up your tool belt.

* Auto enthusiast – Universal 19-pc. Max Axess Socket and Ratchet Set

For those who spend a lot of time under the hood, consider this tool set. It features a unique pass-thru design built to take on any length screw and rods, without the need for deep sockets. The universal tooth design grips six different types of fasteners, so no matter what type of nut you encounter, you’ll be covered. The set contains a total of 19 pieces, including eight metric socket sizes, eight standard socket sizes and a 3/8-inch ratchet.

* Weekend warrior: Bolt-On Tool System

We all know that weekend projects tend to require more than one type of tool. This modular power tool system saves you space, time and money with nine interchangeable attachments that all connect to one tool base. With its ability to transform from a drill to a router to a jigaw and more in mere seconds, it’s perfect to take on nearly any project. A starter kit comes with the tool base, 20-volt battery, charger and drill/driver attachment. Eight additional attachments can be purchased separately, allowing your loved one to expand their power tool collection quickly and reasonably.

* Heavy-duty DIYer: C3 XCP Heavy-Duty Drill

This heavy-duty drill can tackle the toughest of jobs and is the most powerful drill in its class. It is powered by a new extreme core performance (XCP) lithium-ion battery pack that provides 35 percent more run time. Features Extreme Weather Performance, which allows for easier tool start up when the temperature drops, so no matter what the season, your DIY die-hard can be working.

These gifts are sure to be “Guys Favorites Guaranteed.” If they don’t love their new tool, the Sears return policy has you covered. For more information on top holiday gifts, visit www.craftsman.com -or Sears stores nationwide.
