Christmas Gift Guide: 12 gadgets and presents for DIY fanatics

Exakt EC 310N Mini Saw (£65)

The interchangeable blades on the Exakt mini saw can slice through anything: wood, metal, plastic and tiles (though we've yet to test it on adamantium). If you're particularly lazy you can even alter the depth of the blade, meaning you don't need to set up a work bench. And if you attach the supplied hose to your hoover, you won't even need to clean up.

Ghetto Blaster Tool Box (£215)

Tool boxes don’t have to be dull – a fact well evidenced by this example, which is silk screen printed to resemble the sort of ghetto blaster you might find on a South Bronx street corner circa 1984. Individually numbered and made of wood, it concertinas out to give easy access to a number of partitioned-off sections – just like any other tool box. 

More after the break...

Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Tool Pack (£70)

This multi-tool packs in everything but the kitchen sink (though to be fair, we might have missed it). From your standard bottle opener screwdrivers and pliers, to a torch and firestarter rod, there's nothing you won't be able to handle. Apart from a bear. They're a little more... bitey, than wood you see.

Dremel 8200 (£100)

The 8200 is Dremel's most powerful cordless multitool yet, spinning at up to 30,000rpm and offering a 1-hour charging battery. It comes with 35 accessories too, so you can sand, slice, grind and polish your way through almost every material you can think of.
