Here's my favorite gift. You're going to think I'm nuts, but here goes;
|It's a Yankee Screwdriver!|
Actually an Eazypower Isomax Contractor Push Pull Screwdriver. I've wanted one forever! SO MUCH easier than using a power drill for all kinds of small jobs. Hey, interior designers have a constant need for screwdrivers and drills (at least this one does, so maybe it's just me)! It's the size of a regular large screwdriver and comes with several different kinds of bits (the end that goes into the screws or wall or toy or hinge or many, many other things). Then you just pump the handle and it turns the screw! It's a power tool without the need for any power. A little switch on the side allows you to go forward or backward. No batteries, no bulky thing to try to finangle into tight spaces and no muscles necessary. I LOVE THIS THING! Hub got it at Burke's Hardware in Raleigh.
You're thinking that this is not a properly romantic gift for a husband to give his wife? Au contraire mes amis. It means he really listened to me and didn't pass judgements on my odd love of proper tools (which are things that make my life easier and allow me to do more things that I want to do). I think that's very romantic. I've already used my new screwdriver once and Hub has used it too. Now he's a convert to it's magic.
