Most people less mechanically inclined will reach for plyers, screwdrivers, hammer, tape measure, and level. Utility knives and a hack saw might be useful as well. Anything else gets too involved…my wife, for example, doesn’t know what to do with wrenches and socket sets.

I’ve given socket sets to guys as a graduation gift simple because they generally have cars and small machines to play around with. If they have no automotive needs, then I’d stick with tools for household use.

Yeah, hopefully you’ve taught them a thing or two!
