30 Gift Ideas For the Home Improvement/DIY Set

—For this post we've collaborated with Amazon for gift ideas for the home improvement and DIY set. Thank you for supporting the organizations and brands that support Poppytalk. All opinions are our own.  

Being DIY-er's at heart, our gift guide for the home improvement set is inspired by the renovating we have done throughout the years.  We've tackled a wide range of projects throughout the years, and we've learned a lot in the process. It there is one lesson which we took away again and again from projects big and small, it's that the tools you pick and use make a huge difference in the outcome! We've always heard that little mixam: "The right tool for the right job", and we know the value of that well-worn phrase, but, for us, we tacked on "and don't be afraid to stop to find the perfect tool for the job!"




So, here's a round-up of some of the tools that we've found to be incredibly useful to us - some are used frequently, some not, but we're keeping all of them handy in our toolbox, 'cause we know they'll come in handy soon! 

We started off with some of our favorite inspirational home decor and DIY/project-style books to get the creative juices flowing, followed by a good resource guide. And then we've broken it down into basic accessories, tools, equipment and even a little pet care.

For someone who's just starting out upgrading their home, to the well-seasoned, we think there's something here for everyone! Let's take a look!
