The editors of Cool Tools have curated a number of gift suggestions selected from the pages of Cool Tools: A Catalog of Possibilities (which itself makes a great gift), and from the website. This week: tools for $10 or less.



“I have many lock picks I have bought or made myself over the years, but never saw what I was doing until I was given a clear plastic padlock ($10) a few months ago. Now I can plainly see the pins, driver pins, sheer line and springs, etc.”– Kent Barnes



“The Nitecore Tube ($10) is my go-to keychain flashlight after using many giveaway promotional products or $1 LED lights sold next to convenience store cash registers. The extremely light-weight rechargeable lithium-ion battery is quite a change from the expensive coin cells that made me unwilling to use other small lights.” – Trace Gilton



“The OXO Good Grips Deep Clean Brush Set ($6) is a great little set of brushes that will replace that worn out toothbrush you use for cleaning little corners and the like. With stiffer bristles, and a grippy angled handle these little brushes will go places a toothbrush cannot.” — Dan Mushrush



“Since I switched from dress shirts a few years ago to polo shirts without pockets, I’ve been forced to find a better place for my pen and misc items I like to keep up close and handy. I settled on neck wallets, which come in various colors and cost about five dollars.” — Craig Wilson



“The Spotlight rechargeable LED vehicle light $8)recharges in the car’s cigarette lighter, so it’s always right there and charged in the car. I gave them to everyone a couple Christmases ago, and was with my son a few months later when we needed it.” — MB Davidson
