(BPT) - It's no secret that finding the perfect gift around the holidays for everyone on your list can be a daunting task. If your list includes someone who enjoys spending his or her free time fixing things around the house, why not show them you appreciate their DIY enthusiasm with some great gifts that will come in handy for their next project?

Whether they are a weekend woodworking warrior or an automotive gear head, here are some gifts they're guaranteed to love from the Craftsman brand:

*For the moto-obsessed: If they love to wrench on engines of all shapes and sizes, especially motorcycles, the Craftsman Harley-Davidson 5-Drawer Top Chest and Craftsman Harley-Davidson 4-Drawer Rolling Cabinet are sure to put some jingle in their step. Featuring DynaGlide, each drawer is durable with smooth operation. The ball-bearing drawers hold a total of 600 lbs., so they can organize all their favorite tools, plus the signature orange and black makes a great statement in any garage.

*For the power tool enthusiast: If they can't get enough power tools, you can't go wrong with the Craftsman Bolt-On 20 Volt MAX Lithium Ion Drill/Driver Kit. The Craftsman Bolt-On(TM) System is America's largest modular power tool attachment system. It eliminates the need to purchase a whole new tool each time a job requires new equipment, providing a cost savings and space solution. They can attach one of 10 interchangeable attachments to the power tool base and it transforms to take on the task at hand.

*For the wrench head: Whether they're working on a car or under the kitchen sink, if they can't be found without a wrench within reach, you know what to get them this holiday season: the Craftsman 8-inch Max Axess Locking Wrench, which has a rugged steel build and a design that delivers more user generated torque per inch to get the job done right. With fasteners from 1/2-inch and 12 millimeters to 3/4-inch and 20 millimeters turning easily, this custom locking wrench uses six steel blocks that slide easily around nuts and bolts alike. Once in place, each block locks, delivering a nearly perfect fit that helps to eliminate slip.

*For the newbie: If they're learning the DIY ropes and still building up their tool collection, you can't go wrong with gifting a quality tool set. The Craftsman Universal 108-pc. Mechanics Tool Set is the perfect go-to collection. It includes 66 stamped sockets in 1/4 and 3/8-inch drive sizes, two open end wrenches, two quick-release ratchets, one 6-inch extension bar, 23 specialty tools (one magnetic handle, 10 screwdriver bits, 12 nut driver bits), and 14 hex keys. With this kit, borrowing tools from the neighbors will become a thing of the past.

*For the multitask-er: If they need to tackle a different task on the fly, they need a tool that can quickly adapt. The Craftsman 19.2V C3 Multi-Tool w/Quick Release is ideal for DIYers, remodelers or carpenters who need to cut, sand, scrape, grind and more. The quick release allows users to easily swap out the accessories with a simple 150 degree lever rotation, no additional tools required. The variable speed design enables better control for a wide range of applications with 5,000-15,000 oscillations per minute. Plus with two integrated LED work lights, they'll be able to see in even the darkest DIY corners.

The pride of completing a DIY project can't be beaten, and with the right tools, they'll be able to get the job done with ease. Make holiday dreams come true with these great gifts.
