November 13, 2012 (Newswire.com) - What do you buy the man who has everything for Christmas? Well, according to latest research tools are always a good buy!
Andy Burridge from internet site Fast Fix said they are always busy at Christmas. After all, we all know men like their toys - whether it be fast cars or D.I.Y products. Let's face it the desire to buy tools starts at a young age with many young boys being bought plastic tool sets and wooden work benches as gifts.
He said: "The rush is on for Christmas as power tools are snapped up by women as the perfect gift for loved ones."
Online sales have soured in recent years as more people abandon the high street to shop from the comfort of their own home.
Mr Burridge added: "The internet has played a huge role in the expansion of the company, which doubled in size earlier this year."
However, contrary to stereotypes more than half of women asked in a recent survey said they were happy to do D.I.Y around the house.
In the US, ABC News reports that women now account for 40 percent of all tool sales.
According to power tool expert Andy Burridge, one of the most popular items to buy this year has been a DAB digital site radio. The robust piece of machinery is the perfect object for those working on professional building sites who want to keep in touch with the world.
However, for those non-professionals who like a bit of do-it-yourself as a hobby there are other gift ideas to choose from.
1.Mitre Saw - This is a saw used to make accurate crosscuts and mitres in a workpiece. Not every D.I.Y er will have one so it could be the ideal Christmas gift.
3.Angle Grinder Kit.
