Question Plumbers birthday gift ideas?

Hello Plumbing zone forum,

I need to start with the fact that I'm not a plumber, but my brother is, and as you guys can see from the title I am here today to get him something either special, useful or both for his plumbing career that would come in handy every day but where to start is a whole different matter. He has been plumbing professionally for about 5 years now as a gas plumber, fitting all copper pipes, boilers, tanks and things like this.

So, the only way I can think of putting this question is, what would you guys like as a gift from your brother that would help with his plumbing work? There are loads of different tools and brands so I am really needing your guys help to get me on the right path to getting him a nice piece of kit.

My ideas so far......
Toolbox to carry all his tools in a neat fashion

One of them belts you clip on to carry all your tools

And then I was thinking fo kitting out his van so he could hang all his tools in appropriate places so everything is easy to find, he's a bit of a messy guy.

There are my ideas but it still comes back to the best brand and am I making the right choice? Really looking forward to speaking with you all and getting some suggestions! All help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The cake looks awesome

Honestly a gift card would be best. I can't tell you how many tools and what not I've been given that just sit in my storage room.

In terms of tools, it sounds like a gift card is best, who want's to stock up on useless tools. I'm going to have a look online now o see what gift cards are available for tool stores. I also like the trailer jetter idea, this would come in very handy to anyone. Also going to look into that.

Thanks for the replies guys back soon

eBay and Amazon or his supply house.... or his favorite brew is always a good idea.

Nice cake, BTW.
