Give the Gift of Organization

"Getting gifts for my DIYer is getting tougher and tougher, as I'm running out of gifts to get him, and also because of the economy. I think a good, leather tool belt will serve him well now, though, since he keeps swearing and whatnot every time he puts on his old one. Leather is indeed a bit expensive, but I know it'll last longer than the nylon-and-Velcro one he's got. As for me, I got an early gift: a big magnet-on-wheels for picking up all the nails on the lawn from our latest project of reshingling the house. It's been great because I had nightmares of flat tires and tetanus keeping me up!"
