Let us take a moment to appreciate welding as a career. It is tough, hard, and at the same time equally rewarding.
But do we celebrate them as much as we should? No, we don’t. But better late than never. Show them how much you value them by giving them things they would cherish for a lifetime.
To help you with that, we have enlisted a few options which would not only serve as great gift choices for your welder friends but also be easy on your pockets.
- A Welding Helmet and Extreme Heat Resistant Gloves
The first item(s) we bring to you is something that your fellow welder needs on a regular basis: helmet and gloves. The first thing you question while gifting anything is its utility, that is, whether they will ever use it or not. For a welder, a helmet and gloves are a necessity.
The next tick on your gifting list must be aesthetics. For that, you can choose among multiple designs available in the market. There would be absolutely no reason that your welder friend will not be satisfied with this present.
Plus, it would fit right into your budget because of the availability of various options varying in prices. So, from where can you purchase this? My personal recommendation has always been online retailers or aggregators like Amazon, Flipkart, etc, because of doorstep delivery and easy to return facilities.
- Hoodies and T-shirts
Hoodies and T-shirts are a common choice of gift for anyone. So, why is this on our ‘welder’ list? That is because I am not discussing the usual hoodies or T-shirts – get it personalized for your welder friend!
For instance, an online retailing site displayed a hoodie, which read, “I am a WELDER, I am here to build your crap, NOT TAKE ANY.” Amazing, right?
You can either gift them this same personalized T-shirt or get it customized according to your own choice. They need not wear it to work, but this gift is sure to represent work pride. Looking at how welders are underestimated, the customized T-shirt will work wonders.
Some other options for a personalized quote can be, “Yes, I know I am on fire, Let me Finish this weld.” Or “I am welder, I was born with my heart on my sleeve, a fire in my soul and a mouth I can’t control” Let’s admit it, it’s sure to bring a smile on your friend’s face.
- Repair Welding Machine
A welder will not be able to thank you enough once you gift him a welding machine. Remember when we spoke about the utility of your present? This gift breaks the charts about the same.
This is a long-term present for your friend’s business and the amount of gratification he would have for this present would also be insane.
But yes, a gift like this sure as well requires hardcore research about the machines, specifications, and price ranges. Spend time speculating the right choice and make the best pick for your welder friend.
- Extreme Gear Pack and Helmet Bag
When it comes to utility, we don’t think any other item on our list can be compared to this present. Welders have to carry several equipments for their work. To help them avoid the hassle of carrying multiple bags, an extreme gear pack & helmet bag with enough space to accommodate everything they need will prove to be an amazing gift.
A jacket, helmet, tools, gloves, grinder, and a lot of other things – everything will fit right into it and your welder friend will not be erratic at the job site.
You can find dozens of designs for this bag on online platforms. However, the only downside about this gift is that it is slightly expensive. But considering how it has the strength to endure the challenges your welder friend will face at the job site – I think it is justified.
While these are the best picks, you don’t necessarily have to bind yourself to this list. You can do your own research, be innovative, and go out of the way to gift them something special. As long as your welder friend is happy, you know the gift has served the purpose!
