It may not arrive in time for Christmas, but we like the Nextlights LS-A24, which retails at €24.99 with its adjustable beam. It’s just 4.6″ in length and weighs just 6oz which makes the A24 practically pocket sized and can be stored anywhere. It’s from ledpowerhouse.com
If you need something in time for Christmas this is the idea torch every farmer and rural dweller should have. Halfords has a Led Dynamo Wind-Up Torch which works a treat without batteries.
It has a durable plastic body and 3 LED lights that can be used anywhere, anytime without batteries as the torch can be wound up to charge. By winding the torch up for 1 minute it can generate 30 minutes use of the triple LEDs, and means you save money and time having to buy replacement batteries.
At only €5.99, this has to be one of the best value presents for anyone working outdoors this Christmas.
Ok, they’re not exactly cheap, but if you’re buying for a farmer with a great interest in cattle might like a figurine. They cost from €200.00 at Gray’s Country Gifts in the UK, but the range includes a Simmental bull, Limousin bull, Charolais bull, Belgian Blue bull, Limousin bow and calf, and an Aberdeen Angus family.
A characteristic feature of the Victorinox Swiss Army Knife is its multi-functionality, which makes it indispensable. It’s guaranteed against any defects in material and workmanship and would be handy for every farmer to have.
The Camper Swiss Army Knife has large and small blades, a corkscrew, a can opener with a small 3mm screwdriver, a bottle opener with a 6mm screwdriver and wire stripper, a reamer/punch tool, a key ring, tweezers, a toothpick and a wood saw – suitable for any job a farmer may encounter daily.
The Phaze 175 Piece Tool Chest is great value tool chest with a good selection of tools required for most workshop and garage jobs.
The sturdy metal construction features 2 friction slide drawers with a lockable top section which prevents the drawers from opening.
The carrying handle on the top makes it easy to transport so you will always have your tools close while you work. It includes lockable mechanism – top down locks all the drawers. It includes a carrying handle for easy transportation and a sturdy metal construction for long durability.
We think the overalls from Massey Ferguson from farmingparts.com would make any Massey Ferguson owning farmer happy this Christmas. They cost from €40.56 and according to reviews on their website, there was an excellent service parcel, arrived very promptly and the goods were exactly as ordered.
If time is of the essence, then Snickers workwear has cargo trousers from €52 in stores nationwide and are the ideal gift for a farmer young or old!
Bothar says it exports the highest-quality animals and there are only certain types that can be accepted. So, if you have a spare animal or want to donate to the charity, it could make someone’s Christmas.
