Gift With McCoy's This Christmas


This Christmas season will undoubtedly be unique with supply chain issues, pandemic recovery, and the typical holiday rush. But amid the craziness, those who are Born to Build have two secret weapons in their toolbelts: the ability to improvise and the skills to make their own gifts. McCoy’s has what you need for your holiday projects, plus tools and gadgets for every budget to help knock out your gift list.

First, Get in the Spirit

 

Get the season off to a great start by getting in the Christmas mood with the sights and sounds of the holidays.

  • Ready to hang your Christmas lights? Make sure you’ve got a sturdy ladder that’s the right height to make the job go smoothly. McCoy’s offers a variety of sizes so you can safely create the best light display on the block.
  • Once that display is up, save time and money this holiday season by timing your outdoor lights with an outdoor 24-hour mechanical timer.
  • Indoors, it’s easy to control your lighting with smart WiFi LED light bulbs. You can turn up the light to read those toy assembly instructions or down to create the perfect evening mood by the Christmas tree from your phone with a touch of a button.
  • Bring on the holiday cheer wherever you are working with a multi-colored Bluetooth speaker or water-resistant Bluetooth speaker.

Do It Yourself

 

Skip the store lines and build your own holiday gifts this year. Our website has great ideas including:

  • Cornhole Set: A little friendly competition gets even better with a hand-crafted cornhole game and makes an excellent gift for kids or adults.
  • Outdoor Furniture: An Adirondack chair, a picnic table, or a garden bench are all long-lasting, personal gifts that are both practical and sentimental.  
  • Custom Outdoor Wooden Sign: This quick project to welcome visitors can serve double-duty if you put a design on both sides.
  • Doghouse: Remember your best friend with the perfect doghouse made by you.

Get What You Need: Our Top 3 Tools for the Season

 

Treat yourself or your favorite pro or hobby builder to one - or all - of our top three best-in-class tools that will help make holiday gift-building projects simple.

  1. Reciprocating Saw
    Our reciprocating saw provides fast and clean cuts every time. With easy blade changes, you can switch in and out between different cuts with no problem.

  2. Circular Saw
    This handy circular saw includes an LED light and a built-in dust blower. With a 15 AMP motor and a 7-inch interchangeable blade, it’s engineered for a range of projects and powerful enough to cut through lumber like PSL, OSB, LVL, and much more!

  3. Drill and Driver Combo
    Upgrade an old drill to our drill and driver combo kit that comes with two cordless tools so you can keep working even if one runs out of charge. This lightweight 20V drill features two speeds with a high-performance motor perfect for working in even the tightest spots.

Make a Big Statement with Little Things

 

Got a long list of people to recognize and thank this year? Here are our top recommendations for simple things to show your appreciation and to celebrate the season.

  1. Utility Knife
    Just about everyone could use one of these good-for-just-about-any-situation tools, especially one that’s ergonomically designed .

  2. Tape Measure 
    There’s just no such thing as too many tape measures. Period. This unique magnetic variety with a protective finger stop is the top of the line.

  3. Stud Sensor & Picture Hanging Kit
    Holes are for Swiss cheese, not walls. This helpful tool scans for wooden or metal studs and sounds an alert, so you know right where to nail or drill (and where not to).

  4. Combination Wrench Set 
    This 8-piece fully polished variety size wrench set is perfect for hard-to-reach places. It’s available in either metric or standard measurements.

  5. Sweet and Salty Treats 
    What’s Christmas without some treats? We offer several different types of Dave’s Toffee, Jack Links Beef Jerky, Brownie BrittleDot’s Pretzels, and more!
