He’s making a list / and checking it twice. / He’s going to find out who’s naughty or nice. / Santa Claus is comin’ to town.
But what does the jolly ‘ol man give the tiny houser? We’ve denounced materialism. We’ve given up on hard copy books and DVD cases. We’ve got no real garage so there’s no place to store big tools and ATVs. No one photo albums or pictures to hang on the wall. The difficulty is palpable and St. Nick is minutes away from packing his sack and heading back to the North Pole. He can take a deep breath though because we’ve assembled a pretty good list of some of the best gift ideas for any tiny housers on your holiday list!
Goal Zero Torch 250 Flashlight with Integrated Solar Panel
We’ve all grown to love and trust the Goal Zero name. It stands for ease of use, intelligent design, and solar style. This flashlight is no different. In fact, it’s a flashlight on one end and a torch in the middle. It can be charged via USB, hand crank, or an embedded solar panel on the back. It’s also shaped in a way so that it can rest easy with the solar panels exposed to full sun.
Yeti Roadie Cooler
For those who like to take 14 cold ones with them on their adventures, the Yeti Roadie is perfect! The rotomolded construction is nearly indestructible and the flip up handle makes it easy to tote. The lid latches are made of heavy-duty rubber and the size allows the cooler to fit behind a seat for easy access.
Husky Rolling Tool Tote
For those that like to help out on the job site of other tiny housers or who need their tools at work just as they need them at home, this tool tote is totes cool! It’s got pockets galore inside and out, and three oversize wheels to keep it extra stable. The handle also telescopes out for easy rolling.
Black and Decker Roto-Bit
Powered screwdrivers are oft overlooked as quality tools to have. They are considered wimpy versions of “real” tools. Truth is, they are one of the handiest tools to have in your house. This 4V Max Roto-Bit has onboard storage for 8 bits and the internal battery can hold a steady charge for up to 18 months. It also moves in both forward and reverse.
Gear Aid Arc LED Light + Power Bank
If you need a little extra light outside your house or in your storage area or on your next adventure, this 60 LED light is perfect. It produces between 20 and 320 lumens and the battery doubles as a power pack. With it you can get up to 5 smartphone charges or run the light for up to 96 hours!
