Who do you call when the toilet clogs, the outlet smokes, the window cracks, or the vents start to rattle? You call the handyman. This unique breed of human isn't exactly a plumber nor is he or she an electrician; he's not a framer or roofer, per say, nor is the handyman an HVAC specialist. And she's probably not a cabinet maker, painter, or tile specialist, but can probably repair a cabinet, paint a room, or tile a bathroom with aplomb.

The handyman is the jack of all trades when it comes to minor to mid-level home repairs and home improvements. In other words, a handyman is worth his or her weight in gold. You don't have to give this all-important figure in your life gold as a holiday gift, though; instead consider one or two of the items included on our list of great gifts for the handyman.

Whether you regularly hire a professional fixer-upper or if the handyman in your life is a friend, relative, or spouse, they deserve a thoughtful gift this holiday season. After all, the handyman fixes the toilet. And the wiring. And the grout. And that thing that connects to that other thing behind the washing machine.

Having trouble figuring out what to get people for the holidays? You can check out all of Insider Picks' 2017 gift guides here.
