Wind-Up LED Flashlight
Item: Wind-Up LED Flashlight
Where to Buy: Amazon.com
Review: Out of all of the holiday and birthday gifts my husband has received from my family, the wind-up flashlight that he got for Christmas has to make the top 5 list.
Yeah, it's a practical gift, but also surprisingly old-school and fun. A few cranks (the whoosh of the gears make it sound just like a toy from your youth!) and you'll have an extraordinarily bright white light for the home or the car.
My favorite part? The weight. I mug full of water is at least twice as heavy.
My second favorite part? It never needs batteries. The energy-conscious cheapskate in me loves that.
