Today’s gift is a sander. Maybe not for everyone and might not be exciting for most, but this is a great gift for the DIY, woodworker, or tradesmen. An orbital sander makes working with wood easy. So if you have someone on your list that works with wood, this might just be the best gift you can give them this holiday season.

Why Dewalt Makes the Perfect Gift
I have owned this sander for a long time. I owned the first and second generation of the Dewalt sander as that is how much I love and trust this sander. While it does an okay job at dust collection, I have never found a sander that blows me away with dust collection. The good news, this will hook up to a dust collection system and offer a much better dust collection.
While this doesn’t stand out for dust collection, it stands out for build quality, ease of use, and performance. I love how the top handle contours to my palm so I never get tired as I have with other sanders. Even when using this for long periods of time, it never gets hot as I have seen with other sanders.
Bottom line, I know there are a lot of sanders on the market. While the Festool is one of the top, it also comes at a hefty price. For the price and quality, the Dewalt is the top dog and makes a great Christmas gift.
