If there is one gift that you need to open first on Christmas Day morning it has got to be the Zibra OpenIt. This lifesaving tool looks like it should be used for gardening but in fact it was designed specifically as a one-glove-fits-all solution to hard to open packaging like clamshells, tight plastic twist-ties, or the hard plastic coverings on CDs, DVDs and battery containers.
The OpenIt works like a pair of scissors on the hard plastic clamshell cases. In the base of the unit is a retractable boxcutter blade that comes in real handy when it’s a taped-up box that requires your attention. There is even a mini-screwdriver with flathead/crosshead tips that can pop out from the handle of the OpenIt in case you need to remove some screws to get at your newly arrived product.
At a cost of just $11 and in a selection of four colors (black, red, mocha, blue) give this one to any relatives or friends that have little kids the day before X-mas and you will be golden all year long.
