    My husband would love that manly looking BuiltNY Vacuum Insulated Tumbler. He drinks coffee all day long.

  • ellen beck

    I know my husband would not only use the wire strippers but would put them right in his tool belt. With him you cant go wrong with tools. He has a lot, but he is super handy, and saves us so much by being able to fix things rather than buying new. These would be well used.

    • ellen beck

      PS your site has been a bit wonky lately. no clue why I wonder sometimes if comments show.. anyway, it inserted a website no idea why?

      • Your comments do show up :). Many web browsers will try to automatically fill out forms. For example, mine will automatically try to fill out my mailing address when I buy items, as it remembers my address from before but sometimes it gets messed up if there isn’t an apartment line or something like that. So if it’s filling in the form incorrectly you’ll just want to correct it before submitting. I see some of your other comments it’s putting 1960 in the URL/website line for some reason.

  • Dandi D

    The men in my life are always the hardest to buy for, so these are some great ideas!

  • Melissa Storms

    My husband and my son could both use the Mynt tracker, it would save a lot of stress here.
