£15, gardencentreonline.co.uk

Nobody likes fumbling about with their tools in the dark. Well, not in the shed anyway. Help someone stay environmentally friendly while he's out in his fortress of solitude – right into the wee hours. Simple to install, free to use... and it's cheap. The perfect gift?

Solar Shed Light

£10, amazon.co.uk

Fool thieves with this apparently unassuming unibond can that doubles as a safety storage pot. Probably worth giving just to see the expression on your dad's face when he thinks you've given him a can of Unibond for Christmas.

Sterling SafeCan

£30, amazon.co.uk

Sure, a resourceful thief can huff and puff and get into your shed, but to stop opportunists this motion sensitive alarm is perfect. A great gift because its wireless nature makes it easy to set up, leaving its owner more time to oil that prized chainsaw.

Kasp 610 Wireless Shed Alarm

£12, hygienesuppliesdirect.com

The gift of warmth in the cold months surrounding Christmas. An escape to the shed won’t mean dressing for an arctic expedition with this 2000W bi-directional heater.

Fan Heater

£60, halfords.com

No need to wade through a mess of hammers and drill bits first. This man-size tool cabinet looks a bit like the one used in Home Alone 2, which is as Christmassy as this cabinet is Santa red.
