21 Handy Gift Ideas

From Multi-Functional Key Tools to Pocket-Sized Crowbars

— November 6, 2013 — Art & Design
These handy gift ideas are perfect for those who like to DIY everything on their own. These items are great things to add to the arsenal in your toolbox and some are even small enough to fit on a keychain.

These gifts will be sure to please a handy man or woman. Since many of these tools are extremely compact, or multi-purpose, they can be easily tucked away for use when needed. Items like tiny crowbars and screw heads are ideal things to keep in the glove compartment, or in a purse pocket. You never quite know just when you'll need to use them, but when a situation arises, it's always good to be prepared.

Since a lot of these tools are quite small and much more affordable than gifting an entire toolbox, these handy gift ideas make great stocking stuffers.
