We love tools and products that make home life and maintenance easier. These are some of our top-reviewed and best-selling products of 2021.
Outdoor Movie Projector
The 1080p full HD resolution lets you bring the fun outdoors without sacrificing quality. It works with many devices: Fire Stick TV, Chromecast, laptop, Xbox, DVD player, PS4 and USB stick, to name a few. It’s a winning choice year after year.
Magnetic Tool Wristband
This magnetic wristband is the perfect stocking stuffer. It’s a great gift idea for the parent who’s always fixing stuff or their budding DIY helper. Nine powerful magnets keep screws, nails and other small metal pieces on hand without actually occupying a hand. It leaves all 10 fingers free to work.
For the outdoor cooking enthusiast or patio fiend, you can’t go wrong with an outdoor heater. One of these heaters puts out a lot of warmth without taking up too much space. It helps your favorite hosts use their backyard later in the fall and earlier in the spring. Since it runs on propane, this outdoor patio heater is easy to set up and use — no running wires or gas lines necessary.
Ultrasonic Pest Repeller
People who fear bugs always look for ways to keep pests away, and people who simply dislike them appreciate new devices, too.
Ultrasonic pest repellers are inexpensive, unobtrusive and easy to use. They give off no smell or sound, they’re safe for homes with pets and kids, and you don’t have to reapply them every season like chemical repellents. The ultrasonic waves can’t penetrate walls so each room needs a device.
Fireplace Tool Set
A fireplace tool set with a matching holder is a classy décor piece for any type of fireplace. For wood-burning fireplaces, the tools serve a purpose. For gas or electric fireplaces, they’re just for decoration.
This five-piece set comes with tongs, a brush, a fire poker and a shovel. It helps get a fire started and keep it going. And it makes cleanup so much easier.
Outdoor Movie Screen
No outdoor movie night is complete without a screen. This 120-inch outdoor projection screen is lined with grommets for easy setup anywhere. It can go on the side of a house, a fence or even on a wall in the basement. It creates a true home theater experience for less than $100. It pairs well with the projector mentioned above.
Looking for a gift for someone who’s always cold? A heated blanket will give them the warm and fuzzies all winter long. The 60-inch by 60-inch throw is soft and thick enough to keep someone warm without the heating feature. Cordless and battery-operated, it’s perfect for the patio, camping and sporting events.
Blink Security Camera
Here’s a fun and interactive gift for the smart home enthusiast — the Blink Outdoor HD security camera. Wireless and water resistant, it features infrared night vision, motion detection and two-way audio. It provides peace of mind for home security and captures funny moments from the neighborhood animals.
Milwaukee Drill Kit
Milwaukee makes consistently dependable tools for DIYers and pros. This high-quality Milwaukee drill kit tops the list of tools to give as a gift. Four included attachments help reach tight corners to drill and fasten efficiently. A magnetic bit holder saves time by preventing trips to and from the toolbox.
Pet Bed Ramp
A pet bed ramp is a thoughtful gift for the senior pet owner. It lets elderly dogs and cats, as well as little dogs who can’t jump high enough, climb onto the bed to snuggle with their people.
This pet ramp supports up to 120 pounds. It comes in two finishes — cherry and white — and high-traction carpet covers the platform. You could also build a pet ramp for someone who appreciates homemade gifts.
