This set is the perfect size to keep in a drawer or closet for simple repairs and maintenance without having to take an entire tool chest into the house. Also great to keep in your car or everyday carry bag. The Master Set #5575 makes a great tool gift for almost any Dad that likes to keep things practical.

 #2. For the Tool Enthusiast Dad: The Mity Master #1000. This set has it all, even the fancy tools! Aside from the standard bits that come in the #5575, this set also includes Ball Allens, JIS, and an expansion on sizes for slotted and hex bits. This is the set for the Dad who likes to show off his tools to his neighbors and friends. They’ll want to borrow his Mity Master Set, but if he’s a Smart Dad, he won’t let them! This set is also great for a retirement gift.

 #3. For The Hobbyist Dad: Ultimate Gunsmith Set #5589 is a perfect tool gift set for a Dad might have a use for it. But if he wouldn’t, we also have other sets for different hobbies, including our 1903H & 1916 for motorcyclists, 9600 for antique machinery, or 2309 for bicyclists.

 #4. For the Old School Dad: The #7331 Classic set. This Chapman set goes back decades and hasn’t changed much for a reason: it works just as it is. Still one of our most popular sets, your Dad (or his Dad!) might have had this set way back when. Sentimentality aside, this is the perfect set for a Dad who likes to keep it classic. The #7331 offers Philips, SAE Allen Hex, Metric Allen Hex, and is completed with a few slotted bits.
