Best Christmas Gifts for Plumbers

July 06, 2022 16 min read

Christmas always seems to be right around the corner, and few people are more difficult to shop for than a plumber. Plumbers, whether men or women, are unique people with a unique set of tools that most people would rather avoid than learn more about, so finding the perfect gift can be difficult.

Famvibe racked our brains and enlisted the help of all of our friends and family to come up with Christmas gifts for plumbers to share with you. 

1. Kneeling Pad

One of the most common complaints we receive from plumbers is about sore knees. As a result, we recommend this lovely gift idea. There are several brands to choose from, but you want something sturdy with plenty of padding. 

2. Thermal Coffee Cup

Most plumbers work very early in the morning or are awakened in the middle of the night to restart a broken furnace or unfreeze a frozen pipe. A thermal coffee cup is a great way to let them know you're thinking of them while they're at work. These cups are inexpensive and will help your plumber get moving while also keeping them warm.

3. Personalized Coffee Mug

If your plumber made it through the night without being called out, a personalized coffee mug can be a great way to say good morning and show them how much you appreciate their work. Personalized mugs are available almost anywhere and are very affordable.

4. Personalized Shot Glass

When your plumber gets home, he or she may require a drink to unwind, especially if they had a long day or dealt with difficult customers. Another inexpensive gift that can help your plumber relax after a long day and give them something to look forward to while working is a personalized shot glass.

5. Novelty Socks

We all know that men enjoy receiving socks for Christmas or any other occasion, and plumber-themed socks can help brighten the day of someone who spends all day fixing toilets. There are many different themes available, but we think these toilet paper socks are the best.

6. Pullover Hoodie

A pullover hoodie is an excellent gift for the male and female plumbers in your life. They come in almost any design, and you can even have your logo or picture printed on them if you want. They are slightly more expensive than socks, but they will most likely be used more frequently and last longer.

7. T-shirts

Plumbing work is nearly as messy as mechanics, and your hardworking plumber is likely to go through clean shirts faster than you can replace them. As a result, a nice pack of high-quality t-shirts will be greatly appreciated.

8. Work Gloves

A pair of heavy-duty work gloves is something you can buy your plumber that they will undoubtedly appreciate. Your plumber will need to hold, move, and carry a lot of frozen, dirty, sharp, and hot things. On a cold night, a good pair of work gloves can protect the plumber's hands while also keeping them warm.

9. Flashlight

The flashlight is one of the most important tools in a plumber's toolbox. The majority of the jobs a plumber must perform are in dark corners of the house with little light. It's even difficult to see behind the toilet or under the sink, so a nice flashlight is bound to be one of their favorite gifts.

10. Batteries

Given that we were just discussing flashlights, now is probably a good time to mention what great gift batteries are. Flashlights are just one of several tools in your plumber's toolbox that will require batteries, and the majority of them will deplete the batteries quickly.

11. Personalized Cap

Putting your company's name on a baseball cap is a great way to promote it. A personalized cap will protect your head from dirt and debris while also allowing you to see better in bright sunlight and potentially gain new customers.

12. Skull Cap

If it's winter, you might want to wait until spring to wear the cap and instead opt for a warm skullcap. When your plumber is called to a job where the furnace isn't working, you know it's going to be very cold until it's fixed, so a skullcap can help keep the head and ears warm so your plumber can focus on the task at hand.

13. Skull Cap with LED Headlamp

While we're on the subject of headgear, another fantastic gift is the skullcap with a built-in led headlamp. This item combines two great gifts into one and provides a way for your plumber to warm the head and light the way.

14. Plumbing-themed Stationary

Your plumber will undoubtedly be writing bills, follow-ups, estimates, and so on, and some nice plumber-themed stationery can be just what you need to keep your plumber's business in the minds of the public.

15. Personalized Pens and Pencils

Pens and pencils are inexpensive to personalize and are an excellent way to promote your company. Your plumber can distribute pens to people as they sign receipts and other documents, which will help keep your plumber in people's minds.

16. Plumbing-themed Office Supplies

This concept is similar to stationary but expanded to include remaining office supplies such as a pen holder or paperweight.

17. Overalls

Overalls make an excellent gift because they allow you to quickly change into and out of your work clothes while protecting your more valuable attire. Overalls are ideal for when your plumber is called out for an emergency repair and you don't have time to change. You can wear the overall over your existing clothes and get to work.

18. Bucket Boss

The Bucket Boss is a fantastic accessory and makes an excellent gift for plumbers. With this handy design that includes a bucket, your plumber can neatly organize and carry many of their tools. A bucket is one of the most commonly used tools among plumbers, and this gift allows you to keep everything together.

19. Knee Pads

We've already mentioned kneeling pads, but if you want something a little more durable, comfortable, and convenient, you should consider knee pads. These are similar to baseball catchers' pads, and they attach to the leg, so they stay on the body—no need to worry about losing or leaving a pad behind.

20. Plumber-themed Keychain

A personalized keychain is a great way for your plumber to advertise their business and may even help bring up the subject of their profession during get-togethers and other functions. Some keychains include a useful tool, such as an LED flashlight, while others include a humorous or heartfelt message.

21. Christmas Tree Plunger

If you're looking for a Christmas gift for your significant plumber, the Christmas Tree Plunger is hard to beat. This lovely yet practical gift attaches some tree branches to one of your plumber's most frequently used tools.

22. Plumber’s Belt Buckle

We've all heard of the plumber's crack; now you can help your favorite plumber keep his or her pants up with a plumbing belt buckle. A belt buckle is both an attractive and functional gift. Your plumber will appreciate it.

23. Portable Drain Auger

If your plumber is running low on tools, one of the most commonly used items is a portable drain auger, which can be used to clear drains and toilets. Even if your plumber already has one, this gift is sure to come in handy.

24. Pipe Wrench Set

A pipe wrench set is another fantastic tool for the plumber who is short on tools. These wrenches will be required by your plumber on almost every job, and unlike most other tools, there is no substitute or workaround if you don't have one.

25. Pipe Cutter

Another thing your plumber will have to do on a daily basis is cut pipes to make them fit together. A pipe cutter is a simple, low-cost tool that is extremely useful. Most resemble standard c-clamps, but they can easily handle even large pipes.

26. Plumbing Handbook

If your plumber is just starting out, or even if they aren't, a good handbook with detailed information can help elevate your plumber above the competition, bringing in more business.

27. Plumbers Joke Book

We've talked about plumber's manuals, but a plumber's joke book is also a great gift. A good joke book can help break the ice when meeting a new customer if your favorite plumber is quiet or has a dry sense of humor. Telling jokes can also help you appear more approachable, which can lead to more work.

28. Plumber’s Putty

When nothing else works, a plumber's putty can help stop leaks. It can be used on pipes, sinks, and drains, among other things. Plumber's putty can also be used to fill holes, making it one of those items with a million uses that no plumber should be without.

29. Plumbers Tape

If you are unable to stop the leak with a plumber's putty, plumber's tape may be effective. To prevent water from escaping, coat the threads of a pipe with plumber's tape before tightening. This tape isn't like regular tape because it doesn't have an adhesive, but it stops leaks, and your plumber will appreciate having a roll or two on hand.

30. Plumber’s Planner and Organizer

The plumber's planner will assist your favorite plumber in keeping track of appointments, to-do lists, and other important details, allowing them to use their time more efficiently and get more out of each day. A planner is also useful for keeping track of debts, call back information, and so on.

31. Plumber chocolate molds

Can your plumber do more than just fix the sink in the kitchen? Some plumbing themed chocolate molds could really hit the spot if they're a whiz with a wisk. These molds will enable them to create amusing "business cards" to promote their chosen profession.

32. Cartoon necktie

Ties are always a good idea as a gift, so why not get one that represents the plumbing profession? A cartoon eagle triumphantly wields a wrench on this tie. This is the ideal gift for a patriotic plumber who is proud of their job.

33. Leatherwork vest

There are so many tools and so little time! Your favorite plumber can carry all of their tools without the hassle of a belt or bag with this vest. It has cargo pockets, chest pockets, and a secure hook-and-loop pocket to keep everything organized and accessible. The vest is made of tough and fashionable occidental leather.

34. Snack box

Cookies, in a nutshell. This ultimate snack box is shaped like a toolbelt and is ideal for any plumber. It's brimming with chocolate chip cookies and milk chocolate tools that will make anyone's mouth water.

35. Adjustable wrench

The most important tool in a plumber's toolbox is a wrench. An adjustable wrench is one of the best plumbing gift ideas because it allows them to use the same tool for multiple jobs rather than switching tools frequently.

36. Belt buckle

The stereotype of a plumber's pants falling down is well-known. With this stylish belt buckle, you can help prevent this from happening. Maybe your favorite plumber will be more willing to wear a belt to work if it has a cool buckle!

It sometimes pays to look nice. Consider this pipe wrench tie bar if the plumber on your gift list enjoys dressing up. It is available in sterling silver, brushed silver, antique brass, and brushed brass. It's the ideal present for the stylish handyman in your life.
