Some things you don’t even know you need until one day you do. Perhaps you are in a hurry and need to screw a bolt, but you don’t have anything handy. Or maybe you need to mend a torn seam on your pants and don’t have time to do it.

In these situations, small gadgets that make work easier and faster are a good solution. We scoured Amazon and compiled a list of these hidden gems.

They are worth every penny, and they heat up quickly, keep his hands lovely and warm, and are comfortable to hold. Not sure of the battery life yet as I haven’t had to charge them up. He is really pleased with them. @Pauline Bailey
