A smart shopper always prepared to compare products. However, this kind of informed buying can be difficult when you’re shopping for a gift. Multi-tools, for instance, are sophisticated enough to offer dozens of different features. How can you be sure the multi-tool you purchase for a loved one will be used regularly, and that it will last? Our holiday shopping guide below is the answer. Read on to learn what to look for in a quality multi-tool.
Features. First, decide which features your gift recipient needs most. Multi-tools can be used for hunting, on-the-fly repairs, camping and much more. Figure out where and why the multi-tool will be used most – this will help you prioritize attachments and features. For instance, a computer technician would benefit from a tool that includes lots of slim screwdriver attachments for opening computer cases. Campers, on the other hand, would look for a saw blade (for cutting up firewood), a can opener, a strong knife and perhaps wire cutters for tent repair.
