My partner likes to get hands-on and is always on the lookout for items that she can actually see herself using. If you’re like me, constant head banging when needing to find gifts, we are here to help you out.
It couldn’t really get any better. You show her how much she means to you, she gets to open a gift and it is something that can be used to help keep the family better prepared.
Take a look at our suggestions below and message us on Twitter if you have something that you think should be on the list.
Victorio Hand Crank Grain Mill
Grains are a survival food that when stored correctly, will last for many years to come. With the Victorio Hand Crank Grain Mill it couldn’t really get any easier.
With this, your partner can grind all the wheat, corn, rice oats, barley, non-oily seeds, peppercorns, and other dry grains and spices that they need and as a bonus, greatly reducing expenses.
The hopper of the Victorio Hand Crank Grain Mill is plastic but all of the milling parts are stainless steel and it has an outer cast aluminium handle wood.
I will say though that it will take some effort on her part. It certainly isn’t as easy to use as some of the models we have tested but the prices of those also reflect that. If she pays for a gym membership, cancel it as she can get a whole workout with this.
You could make it easier by going for an electric grinder but if there is no power, there is no grinding.
Credit Card Survival Tool
It is not just the men in the family that needs tools, the ladies need tools too!
You are in great hands with the Swisscard Lite as it has been designed and crafted in Switzerland by none other than Victorinox.
Don’t get it twisted though, for something so small it is rugged and oozes quality in every part.
The Swisscard Lite easily slips into your purse, pocket, bag or auto glove box. This tool weights only an ounce and is about the size of 4 stacked credit cards.
You get a letter opener (blade), LED mini white light, scissors, magnifying glass, straight pin, 3mm and 5mm screwdrivers, pressurized ball point pen, tweezers, and inch and centimeter rulers.
