37 of the Handiest Gadgets on Amazon That Make Amazing Gifts

Story time: My friend Robert recently asked me for a gift idea for a business partner. I suggested a nice bottle of pinot noir and this smart little 5-in-1 wine gadget. The following week, I was taken by surprise when Robert gave *me* the wine and gadget as a thank you gift. Turns out he wanted to make sure I’d love it, so he tricked me into suggesting my own gift!

The moral of the story is, I am a trusted source of recommendations for gadgets and gifts, and I think you’re going to like my suggestions, too. There’s a foldable bread slicer (who knew this was even a thing?!), a skin cream with a cult following, and a new product called Yoga Paws. Keep reading for more of the newest, weirdest, handiest gadgets you can find on Amazon!
