Around this time of year I’m a bit gift guided out. I’ve written about various gifts you can buy your loved ones, but haven’t really focused on items that might benefit you outside of feeling like Santa Claus. Currently, I’m investing my time in products that will take the stress out of the holiday season. Tools that I can count on to get the job done as efficiently as possible. I’ve found that BLACK+DECKER’s holiday handbook is a great resource for both gift ideas and tools to get the job done.

My latest project has me putting together a bed frame for my guest bedroom. This holiday season we’re anticipating quite a few friends and family passing through, so naturally we needed more sleeping options. For this project I’m using the BLACK+DECKER 20V Max Lithium Cordless Drill Driver. Outside of it being compact and lightweight, its SMARTECH battery pairs with SMARTECH iOS and Android compatible devices so you can remote control the battery locking/unlocking, check the state of charge, locate if the battery is missing and view programmable alerts.

That’s not all; the SMARTECH battery includes a built-in portable charger for charging tablets, phones, mp3 players and other smart devices.
