True story. I sent my husband to the home improvement store to pick up some building supplies for me and he came home with this on his key chain. Needless to say, this multi-tool gadget makes a fantastic Valentine’s gift (if they don’t just buy one for themselves)! It has a multi-bit screwdriver, mini-wrench, blade, and LED flashlight. I think I need one for myself!

If you and your sweetie are fans of beer, a beer of the month club might be the perfect gift for you this Valentine’s Day! I would score some major “wife points” in the eyes of my husband if I bought this for him this year.
