Christmas Wishes - Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt 1/2 in. Lithium-Ion Drill Kit Review & GIVEAWAY!!

Are you struggling to find the perfect gift for the special man on your list? That is me every year. I know what my husband loves. The problem is that I know too well. The past few years I have found so many sports fan items, boots, colognes and the like that I knew he would love, and I proceeded to buy them all.

That may sound great, but now that he has all of that stuff, it would be silly to get him more of the same, which basically meant I had to start from scratch and find new things that he would like. Since that is pretty much the only categories he shoes any interest in, it means I actually have to know what he would like, even when he doesn't.

My husband is not really the "Mr. Fix it" type of guy, so I have always hesitated to get him a lot of tools. I actually usually do most of the assembling of toys, storage units, etc. for our household, so I was worried they would be a poor gift for him.

Occasionally though, there will be a job that I am not very good at and need his help with or something that he decides he wants to do on his own. In those cases, he is stuck using the very limited collection of manual tools we own(hammer, screwdriver and wrench), which makes it extremely difficult.

I figured that having at least one power tool could only be helpful, and figured he would appreciate not having to work as hard to accomplish tasks that should be simple. Since it was a gift(and even if it wasn't) I wanted to make sure I got him the best quality available. I chose Ryobi since it is a brand I trust implicitly.

I chose the Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt 1/2 in. Lithium-Ion Drill Kit with 2 Batteries. It is the kit to start out with. The kit includes the 18-Volt ONE+ 1/2 in. Cordless Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver, two 18V ONE+™ Compact Lithium-Ion Batteries, charger and storage bag.

I had planned to save it for Christmas, but just as I mentioned, one of those times came up again, where he needed a tool. I figured it would be an even better gift to make the job easier for him now, when he really needed it, so I gave it to him. He LOVED it. I never thought he would be so excited about a tool.

I knew this was the perfect choice for him because it is not only a drill, but essentially a power screwdriver, which will be what he gets the most use out of. We screw all the time, so it's a no-brainier. Like I said. He was thrilled to have something to make his work away from work a little easier.

He needed to add support brackets to our wooden shed, and nails proved to be a pain and a manual screwdriver would have been a torturous ordeal, but with the Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Drill, it was a speedy and effortless task.


He said thank you for the drill about 6 times, which was shocking since I was initially worried he would not even like it. I am so glad I trusted my instinct and got him something that would be practical, because it ended up being one of his favorite gifts I've gotten him(and I've gotten him some really nice things).

For those that know a lot about tools and want to know the specifications, the drill includes a 1/2 inch heavy-duty single sleeve, keyless chuck with a 24 position clutch, exclusive MagTray and on-board bit storage, which allow convenient placement of bits and screws. 

The best feature, in my opinion, is that  all 18-Volt One+ batteries work in every Ryobi 18-Volt One+ tool ever made. That is wonderful because after how happy he was with this drill kit, I plan to get more Ryobi One+ tools for my husband. As his collection grows, all his tools will be able to share batteries, so nothing will ever be uncharged.


If you are trying to find a great gift for the handyman or not-so-handy man in your life, the Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt 1/2 in. Lithium-Ion Drill Kit would be a great choice.

  50. If you are shopping for a light weight and capable driver drill, then you may want to check out at the Makita BDF452 Driver Drill Kit. Even though it is lighter than the other driver drills, it is nonetheless more beneficial because of its fantastic attributes.
