I think it’s safe to say that money is pretty tight for most people this Christmas. Finding the perfect gift for a loved one and staying under budget can be difficult which is why WiCKS Electrical would like to help you out. Here is a list of 5 affordable gifts that would be appreciated and more importantly used by any electrician:


As the individuals responsible for providing your home with light, we are often the ones left in the dark. With both hands occupied, holding wires or tools, a headlamp is a perfect gift for any electrician! With a variety of lamp settings and adjustable straps, a headlamp will provide the light needed to ensure quality workmanship.

Whether you’re buying online or in-store, there are a number of headlamp brands with varying prices. This makes it easy to buy a gift for someone while staying under budget.

Insulated Screwdrivers

Insulated screwdrivers are tools designed specifically to protect both the user and any delicate electrical parts. Their handles and shafts are covered in tough, non-conductive plastic which prevents the electrician from getting a shocking surprise. It also protects any delicate electrical parts that may be damaged in the event of an electrical short. With these tools, you could buy the whole set or just one without breaking the bank.

Measuring Tape

Imagine your electrician came and guessed the height for all your switches or plug points- they’d all be at different levels! With the homeowner’s demand for precise placement of fixtures and outlets, there is no limit to the use of a measuring tape in electrical work. This is an inexpensive gift that is guaranteed to be used all the time.

Wire Stripper

Electrical wires are covered by insulation but for an electrician to work, they need to remove part of that insulation. This is where wire strippers come in handy! These tools are available with teeth of different sizes to fit the wire needing to be stripped. In addition to stripping, this tool is also able to cut the wire. Although other things can be used to do this, it’s nice to use the tool specifically designed for the job.

Puns To Lighten the Mood

Whether they’re a coffee or tea kind of electrician, I’m almost certain that every morning will be started with a few cups. So why not find or create a mug that makes them smile? There are far too many good puns about electricians for them not to be used on a mug or t-shirt. This not only makes the gift personal but will make them chuckle every time they use it.
