Giving a gift to a carpenter is like giving a gift to anyone else but you have to make sure that you are giving the right gift.
My Uncle Robin is a carpenter and although with that trade he earns bread, I’m sure he loves it so much that he would work wood for a pure hobby.
The best thing about good Robin is that he’s very detailed, he sent me a beautiful table for my new apartment and he’s always there if I need to do some DIY. How can we not remember him and give him some gifts of appreciation?
The best way for you to get to the heart of a guy like Uncle Robin is to share his tastes, so I’ve decided to give him something that’s useful for his carpentry shop, I know he’ll be grounded by a lot.
