I Spy Christmas, A Book of Picture Riddles

I Spy Christmas: A Book of Picture Riddles

We took several of these books on a long road trip when the kids were younger. It says the book are for ages 4 to 8 but my older kids liked them (ages 12, 10, and 9 at the time) and so did I. The I Spy books are beautiful, very well done and can hold your attention enough to pass the time on a car trip. It is a challenge to find all the objects hidden in the imaginative photos. I would not hesitate to give the I Spy books as gifts.

Leatherman 830039 New Wave Multitool with Leather Sheath

Leatherman 830039 New Wave Multitool with Leather Sheath

The top-rated Leatherman is a multi tool that does not disappoint. It has 18 tools including 2 pliers, wire cutters, saw, 2 files, scissors, 2 knives, 2 screw drivers, bottle opener, 2 double-ended bits, and more. Make a place for the 100% stainless steel Leatherman on your tool belt because it can save the day in many situations. The Leatherman lists for $93 but right now Amazon has it for less than the manufacturer's suggested retail price.

Review from a happy customer:
October 1, 2009
By Van F. Jordan
Extremely utilitarian multi-tool. Sharp strong blades. Interchangeable screwdriver micro to standard. Sharp durable scissors. Biting needle nose pliers. A must for a craftman or do-it-yourselfer.

Another customer who was happy with the Leatherman:
October 14, 2009
By S. Hewes
This is great. I bought it for my boyfriend and he now carries it everywhere. The tools are all extremely useful, and the knife, saw and scissors are all extremely sharp. The price here is also great because everywhere else I looked it was over $90.

These are jut two out of a hundred reviews from satisfied customers. Think about slipping the Leatherman into the Christmas stockings of your menfolk.
