Yes Tom, I thought about those pipe wrenches--but I thought she'd have ENOUGH trouble just getting that 6' stepladder into her toolbox!

Oh, one more thing, about the cordless drill/driver and its ergonomics. As I intimated, these things are so handy that they quickly become indispensable. So when you're looking at them, consider that you're likely at times to be using them OVER your head--e.g., installing curtains, etc. The weight becomes important.

Also--you'll need a magnetic bit holder for it. This allows you to, say, drive screws "one handed." The great thing here is that you can hold things with one hand while driving them in with the other. (Try THAT with hammer and nails!)

+Zip strips are also called zip ties you find them in the electrical department in stores.They are great for holding things up or tying together various projects and are really strong.
For instance one of my workers hit a deer his front bumper skin fell off so instead of buying all new clips at $3.49 each we used these to put the bumper cover back on and it has lasted a long while know and is holding well and can't even see them.
There are so many different things you will need that you'll prolly get more than 1 toolbox and use each one for different things such as 1 will have gloves,pruning sheers,weed killer and such it will hold all your gardening items and tools,then another with all wrenches and sockets sets will be your fix-it box,what you need to do is have your toolbox for you and what items you will need and use.Obviously you won't have the same items an electrician ill have so you will weed out the tools you use and need in your box.
Good luck and happy holidays to all.
