Pretty Pink Tools For Women!
Hey, ladies! First and foremost, we’re girls, and we want things to look pretty — even our handy-woman or handy-ma’am tools!
So, here are a few recommendations for pink tool kits for women. They delight the eye as well as make fixing broken things around the house so much less of a chore.
With pink tools for women, you won’t have many of the male persuasion borrowing and not returning your tools, either. For some reason, men are allergic to pink. 😉
Pink tool kits for women make great holiday or Christmas gifts to consider for the handy women in your life.
Choosing Pink Tools For Women
Many women don’t aspire to be die-hard handy-women. They’re not looking for the best Makita, or DeWalt, or Bosch. They don’t want the latest in gas guns or high-powered drills. They’re just looking to have something on hand that will take care of the normal chores, projects, or emergencies that come with being a homemaker. The recommendations that follow will do the trick — and then some! The first two items are my favorite; you can’t beat the guarantee!
As gifts, these suggestions should make any practical woman’s eyes gleam — as long as she’s not receiving it from her husband. (Note to hubbies: If she asks for it, though, make a beeline to the checkout with it. Wrap it purty, now. 🙂

Pink Tools Caveat
Some things to watch out for:
I have found that a lot of makers out there change their products only through color. They don’t change the ergonomics — the weight, the handling, and such. In other words, just because it’s pink, it doesn’t mean it’s “designed for women.”
Another problem I’ve found is the quality. For instance, there’s a pink tool belt made of leather just like the ones for men; it has that pink color bleeding onto the clothing worn beneath it.
Women sometimes want more than pink. But, the problem with finding tools with colors that suit us is that these colored tools are created mostly as a fad and not with attention to detail or quality in mind. So, if pink is not your color, I suggest buying the better-known hand tools I’ve chosen for women and dipping them in, or painting them with, Plasti Dip, from Performix. It lasts for years!
