Hand tools have remained largely unchanged for years because their simplicity is what makes them perfect. Well, almost perfect. The eTape16 is a digital tape measure with some bells and whistles that are actually really useful. The display gives you real-time measurements, offers conversions at the push of a button, and even stores your last measurement so you don’t have to keep repeating numbers out loud so your brain remembers them. You can even upgrade to a Bluetooth model which sends data to your phone so you have all your measurements on hand when you make the trip to the hardware store. We don’t think many of our tools need to be upgraded, but the eTape16 makes a strong case for replacing that old tape measure.

Unzip your coat and have some mulled wine on the house—you’ve arrived at your final gifting destination: The Holiday Gift Guide. It’s like your friendly neighborhood one-stop holiday shop, except instead of balsa wood ornaments, ours is packed with thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list. Future heirlooms, small-but-significant stocking stuffers, and gear for getting out there (or staying in)—are all right here. There’s no music playing in the background though, so you’ll just have to hum Bing Crosby while you click around instead.
