Father's Day is just around the corner and it’s always a tricky occasion to buy for.

But if your dad loves to DIY, then why not consider getting him something more suited to his taste. DIY Dad’s love practicality…

They say bad workmen always blame their tools, but your dad will have no excuses with the perfect tools under his belt.

Swiss Army KnifeHere are some of our suggestions for accessories which are just that little bit more interesting than getting him a run of the mill hammer.

Swiss Army Knife

What dad would not adore the functions of the swiss army knife. Get one with as many tools as possible – such as a wire stripper, toothpick, cock screw, can opener, scissors and tweezers.

Your dad can carry all his tools around without the bulk.

Combination ladderTitan Way Combination

You dad will never have to worry about which ladder to pick again with a 3 way combi-ladder, which can be changed  into a step ladder, extension ladder or a stair ladder.

We recommend the Titan 3 Way DIY Combination Ladder, perfect for everyday tasks.

Titan 3 Ways are very robust and have a light construction that makes them very strong.  Both sections have large ‘D’ shaped rungs positioned at the correct working angle for maximum comfort.

So whether your dad needs an extension, step or a staircase ladder, a quality combination ladder, Browns will help him get almost any work at height task done, quickly and efficiently.

Compact torch

Does your dad do his DIY in the dark? Torches come in handy for those late night adventures. These days, you can get mini torches that easily fit on a key ring…but don’t let the size fool you – they can be powerful.

Tool belt

Why let your dad struggle with his tools when you can get him a tool belt? We don’t want your dad to be climbing up a ladder and overreaching for his tools, now do we?

You can even make one yourself if you have the skills.

Tool-belt Accessory kit

Dads hate it when they can’t find the right tools to carry out a job. Why not get him a large accessory set with drill bits, holesaws bit holders and screwdriver ends?
