We recently posted our suggested Holiday Gift Guide, and before that we predicted which tools will sell very well during this holiday shopping season. Today, we’ll tell you about three of the tools that we are gifting to friends and family this year.
1. Gorillatorch Flexible Tripod Flashlight – We picked up one of these for ourselves a few weeks ago, and then another one for a close colleague. The Gorillatorch is a rather versatile flexible-tripod flashlight, and if its $30 price were $5-10 cheaper, we would buy quite a few more as gifts.
2. Streamlight Stylus Pro Flashlight – Time and time again, when we are at a loss of what to give, we fall back to the Streamlight Stylus Pro. Everyone NEEDS a reliable flashlight that can be carried in a purse, briefcase, backpack, or pants pocket. Emphasis on the reliable part, which some people tend to forsake. Hi Dad, yes, I’m talking about you!
3. Kershaw Ken Onion Leek Pocket Knife – As with flashlights, we feel that everyone should have at least one quality pocket knife. Usually we opt for giving Leatherman or Victorinox mutlitools due to their greater utility, but this year one of our close friends is getting a Kershaw Onion with a plain blade and unadorned stainless steel handle.
By no means is this all that we’re gifting, but just those that have already been received or anticipated by the respective recipients. Please feel free to share with us any tool gifts that you plan on giving this year.
