Staying safe in the shop isn’t always about the hands and eyes, you have to protect the lungs too. That's where RZ Masks come into play. There are three different base masks to choose from, each with a painter's dream of color and image options. So you can protect your health while expressing your true style.
Maybe the person on your list isn’t always the most organized, but with the Bosch Custom Case System, at least you know that whoever you give this to, they will at least have organized bits. Tilt-in/tilt-out convenience and customizable organization options make this a great jobsite grab. 
- Socks! We all need them, and Keen Utility offers up the perfect pair. Made with high-tenacity nylon fibers in the heel and toe and sporting the KeenWunderseam seamless flex zone to avoid bunching.  Plus, they come with a lifetime guarantee! 
-Kaizen Inserts are the best thing to happen to tool storage since sliced bread…well actually sliced foam. This foam comes custom fitted for all the top tool storage boxes on the market. All you have to do is decide how you want the tools laid out, cut away the profile, and… that's it. Clean, neat, perfect professional storage made easy.
Know someone who needs to mark, measure, and guide their cut in one tool? Sure you do, that's what woodworkers do all day. The Quickcut Circular Saw Cutting Guide from Bora gives you the precision they are looking for in this sturdy aluminum tool.

Air-injected midsole, lightweight aluminum safety toe, and oil- and slip-resistant non-marking rubber outsoles. Oh, and they look and feel great. A style looking right at home on the jobsite or on a night out. Wherever your feet want to be protected and look good, the San Jose 6" Boot (Aluminum Toe) from Keen Utility will do the trick.
Tired of hearing holiday music all day, and I mean ALL DAY. Well, get your own tunes going with this awesome 12V/20V MAX* Jobsite Bluetooth Speaker from DeWalt. With a 100’ range sync, you can spread whatever music makes you cheer this winter (side note, it also works in the other seasons too).
Pockets aren't only for ugly sweater gag gifts this holiday, pockets can also be a woodworker's best friend. The Kreg Jig K5 gives both the amateur and the professional an easy to use tabletop pocket hole solution. 
The Bosch 12 V Max Planer is a mini wonder. It is all about powerful, balanced operation and easy handling. This compact cordless planer is a must have for anyone needing professional planing results.
Whether on the job site or you simply forgot to put up your decoration lights this year, the M18 Rocket Dual Power Tower Light from Milwaukee has you covered. Offering 2,500 lumens in its high mode, 1,100 in medium and 700 in low, and a runtime of up to 12 hours with an M18 battery, this party could last all night… 

Under $500

Getting caught up in the epoxy table pour craze? I’m talking to you, everyone on social media… Well, make your own pours with EcoPoxy. The safest and most eco-friendly epoxy solutions available.
Sharpening your tools is like holiday gift buying, you might not always want to do it…but once it's finished you feel so satisfied. Make the gift-giving (and tool-sharpening) easy by staying sharp with the Tormek T-4 8" Wet Grinder Sharpening Machine.
Need to get a handle on the holiday season gift-giving? You came to the right place. The Crossover Vise from Howard's Total Vise is your ultimate positioning clamping solution. And with the ability to hold projects from woodcarving to welding and everything in between, it fits most any passion you can think of.
Say hello to the ETSC 125 cordless random orbit sander from Festool. Compact, cordless, with supreme dust collection. Two out of three of those make for easy wrapping. Three out of three of them make for a ridiculously good sander.
Looking for a powerful table saw with ultimate portability, look no further than the M18 Fuel 8-1/4" Table Saw from Milwaukee. And with the safety of the One Key platform built right in, you can make sure the saw stays in the possession of the person you gave it to. 
Just a beast. There are many more adjectives available here, but this one sums it up best. The DeWalt 13" Planer does what you need it to do, plain and simple, with no complaints (just like your holiday house guests…)
