1. Electric Sander
An electric sander is a must-have tool for any DIY project, and the best part is that there are plenty of options to choose from. When it comes to furniture makeovers, we love the Dewalt Orbital Sander. This sander is a solid and reliable tool. We can assure you that you can buy it with your eyes closed!

2. Chalk Paint Brush Set
A chalk paint brush set is an excellent gift for anyone who loves to paint furniture. Good quality brushes may be expensive but they are necessary to avoid brush strokes and obtain a good final result. That’s why brushes are always on the refinisher’s gift list. These brushes come in different shapes and sizes so you can get the perfect size for any job.
3. Paint Sprayer
If you’re into repainting furniture, then a paint sprayer could be the perfect gift. Not only does it make the job easier and faster, but you’ll also get a more even finish than with a brush.
4. Reusable Respirator
Safety should always be a priority when working on furniture refinishing projects, so why not get them some safety gear as a gift? A good respirator protection will protect your loved ones from paint fumes and dust particles.

5. Hearing Protector with Bluetooth Wireless Technology
Equipped with Bluetooth Wireless Technology, these hearing protectors allow you to stream your favorite music from your smartphone while helping provide protection in noisy environments. Noise cancellation is not complete but it is quite something.
This hearing protector is really a cool device. I personally do not own it but I would love to receive it as a gift. I already put it on my Christmas Wishlist.
6. Adjustable Shop Stool with Casters
An adjustable shop stool with casters is a must-have item for anyone who spends a lot of time working on their projects. It provides comfort and the casters can help make it easier to move around the work area as needed.
7. Cordless Screwdriver
A cordless screwdriver is a must-have for any furniture refinisher or DIYer. It’s one of those tools that can make quick work of small repairs and assembly jobs. Plus, you won’t have to worry about tangling up cords while you’re working.
If you’re working with wood, then clamps are essential for clamping pieces together while glue sets or while you’re sanding and staining the pieces. They’re very useful for minor furniture repairs. Clamps can also be used as an extra set of hands in the workshop.
9. Folding Platform Truck
This is a must-have for any furniture refinisher or DIYer. Whether you are transporting heavy items to and from the work area, or you need something to move around large pieces of furniture, this truck will help make it easier. It’s also easy to fold up when not in use, which makes it great for storage.
10. Large Stencils
Large stencils are great for creating beautiful designs on furniture. They come in a variety of sizes and styles, so there is always one your loved one will need.
