BLACK+DECKER™ Smart Select® 4V Max Lithium Rechargeable Screwdriver


Okay, we know this one is a tool, but hear us out. I can’t tell you how many times a screw has been lost because there was not enough room to hold it in place while drilling. This screwdriver helps eliminate that problem. The retractable arm keeps the screw where it should be during installation for ease of use and less frustration. One reviewer said, “This tool is small but easy to use, very lightweight. Worked perfectly as I assembled two chests of drawers. Compact, not bulky or awkward, great price for the name brand....love it!!” Plus, as a bonus, your honey will be able to help you hang your pictures on the wall.

Once reviewer says “I really like this set - and at 36 pieces, it's going to cover most everyone's styles. I'm mainly a tongs-and-spatula kind of griller, but this offers so much more, from the usual (bottle opener) to the esoteric (doneness tags! REALLY!)”.

eBags Professional Slim Laptop Backpack


Garnering a 4.5 out of 5 stars, this bag is highly regarded by those who carry a backpack everyday. It’s made of rigid material to hold up against tough everyday use, but stylish enough to look great in a professional setting when needed. As one reviewer put it, “My boyfriend is impossible to shop for because he researches everything so meticulously and it's hard for me to match that. But this backpack was featured on a Top 10 list, and he loved it! Its components are perfect for anyone, but especially tech guys who love to travel!”

If your guy is like mine, he wants to optimize his TV watching experience. The Roku 4 will do just that because it will automatically adapt and deliver the best picture quality your TV can display. So whether you have an HD TV or a 4K Ultra HD TV, he’ll always get the best picture possible. The reviews are mixed, but it looks like Roku has fixed the early issues they were having. A more recent reviewer gave it 5 stars and says, “This product has forever changed the way I watch television entertainment and this 4 model is awesome. Buy it just to try using the headphones connected to the remote! But, seriously, this is the Cadillac of streaming players, in my opinion”.
