When it comes to buying gifts, welders aren’t known to be the easiest to buy for. Welding is a popular hobby as well as a profession, so with that in mind we have put together a practical gift guide to find something the welder in your life will love.

Welding Jacket

Staying safe while welding is an important consideration for every welder. A leather welding jacket offers protection from sparks and heat from welding and other industrial processes. This particular jacket is made from split cow hide and includes a number of different features for improved comfort including a cloth back with shoulder vent, cloth under arm to improve flexibility and adjustable wrists.

This jacket is available in 5 different sizes, ranging from medium to XXL.

Welding Helmet

Every welder needs a helmet no matter where they are welding or what process they are doing. Helmets provide vital protection for the eyes and face area from burns, sparks, light and heat. Whether the welder you know is just starting out or is more experienced and requires an upgrade, a helmet is a great gift! 

Our favourite choice for helmet is the Optrel Crystal. This helmet was launched this year and has been a proven to be a best seller. Every welder dreams of having one of these! This helmet has a lens like no other. With the 2.0 crystal lens technology the welder is able to see before, during and after welding with a practically unclouded and clear view of the working environment.

If you’re looking to spend a little less, the Lincoln 3350 is a great value helmet, which has proved to be a very popular option amongst our customers at this price point. With its 1/1/1/1 optical class it provides the largest viewing area compared to others in its class. This helmet comes with a bandana and decal sheet for a personal style.

Welding Gloves (Gauntlets)

Another essential piece of PPE for welding is gloves. They’re a vital component to every welder’s set up. We have chosen two of our most popular gloves. One pair for MIG welding gauntlets, which are a little bit thicker and offer the ultimate protection. Then a pair of TIG gauntlets. Being a little thinner, these are perfect for TIG welding giving the welder more control over the torch and wire.
