    A good claw hammer. It's thematic, and I remember well my new homeowner gift. And like a spare tire, you hope you will never need it, but you will. PS Consider personally engraving it.

    GIFT CARD!

    Gift card to a local Building Store is great! No excuse to not buy that little thing you need at the last second.

    Old post but I have slowly realized that one of my most useful tools is my wheel barrow. It makes so many jobs in the yard much easier.
